Ritelite have recently been working closely with Boels Rental in both existing depots and on new planned depots to ensure that the lighting installed is safe, functional and efficient.

One of the most current projects has been focused on a new Boels Rental Depot in Newcastle. Using the site plans the team was able to generate lighting plots and recommend a lighting solution for the new depot.

The products installed were Ritelite’s new 150W linear LED Bay lights fitted with Microwave sensors. The fittings met the required specification for the client and had been installed at different depots previously with good feedback and performance.

The Solution:

I have been working with Ashley Newton at Ritelite Systems for over a year now and have always found him to be very responsive to our demands, be it for lighting designs, quotations or specifications of products.

Good lighting is key to ensuring our estates are compliant, energy efficient and safe places for our colleagues to work in. The benefit of working with Ritelite is that once provided with our drawings and requirements they produce all the lighting designs for us, suggest an appropriate product and provide us with a quote to supply the equipment. Buying direct from the manufacturer, where we have a direct single point of contact has proved so much easier than dealing with an Electrical Wholesalers, as we have done previously.

Ashley has recently helped us with our new depot in Newcastle, a site that will enable us to grow our presence in the North East of England and better serve our customers with our ever expanding range of equipment. We decided to make use of 19 of their newest luminaries, the Prolite 150W LED High Bay Linear Light with Microwave Sensors. The fittings arrived well packaged on a pallet and from opening the first unit I was struck by the quality of the fitting, no cheap tinny enclosures, no thin lenses and no exposed dazzlingly bright LED chips. Installation of the fittings was also a breeze, a pair of sturdy eyes pre-cast into the aluminium heat sink made hanging the fittings easy, as did the pre-wired flex of more than ample length. I’ve had experience of fittings with Microwave detectors in the past, I’ve also had the experience of repeatedly having to go up to each sensor, unscrew a cover and mess around with little switches to get the right programming, not the case with these fittings, all the programming can be changed by remote control from the ground, full control of detection range, dimming levels and durations and best of all at what ambient level to turn off altogether.

Are these the best fittings I’ve used in my 14 years as an Electrician? Undoubtedly!

We look forward to working with Ritelite Systems again as Boels Rental continues its bold expansion plans across the UK.
