Functionality and efficiency at the hospital

Over 400 LEDVANCE Panel LED 600 were recently installed to meet the high lighting demands at Dublin’s Connolly Hospital. After the Panels with light sensors were integrated with the building management system, the hospital records up to 70% energy savings through lighting.


The Challenge

A busy hospital like the Connolly Hospital in Dublin places high demands on light: The right lighting must be available in every area of application, delivering the light quality that is required by medical workers as they care for their patients. As in any building, energy efficiency and low maintenance play an important role in the choice of lighting, but in healthcare environments, reliability is particularly crucial as downtime needs to be avoided.


The Solution

The Connolly Hospital Electrical Team turned to LEDVANCE to replace over 400 existing fluorescent fixtures (4 x 18W) in the A&E department, main corridors, wards, reception and ancillary hospital areas. The team chose the LEDVANCE Panel LED 600 with its 30W and 4000K colour temperature, due to the luminaire's qualities of high luminous efficacy, homogeneous light and quick and easy installation.


The Benefits

The Panels also come with a 5-year guarantee, providing the hospital with peace of mind regarding the reliability of the products being installed. The LEDVANCE Panels did not disappoint in terms of safety, too: The cost contribution of lighting on the hospital’s electric utility bill was significant prior to the LED upgrade. After the Panels were easily integrated with the hospital’s building management system, the team noticed up to 70% energy savings through lighting. What’s more, the homogeneous light produced by the panels has been noticed by medical staff, patients and visitors alike, with many commenting on how the light is perceived to promote well-being and help create a bright and clean working environment.


"The quality assured by LEDVANCE products gives us trust in the success of our lighting projects."
