The Challenge: Difficult Access for Repetitive Lighting Maintenance
Like most facilities of its time, the Pilkington plant was lit by conventional HID lamps with linear fluorescents as emergency backup. But, as is typical with HID technology, the fixtures required frequent bulb changes.
Not only was maintenance an ongoing issue and expense, but it was made even more challenging by the difficulty in accessing the fixtures themselves. Between the location of fixtures above the storage racking and the high-traffic environment with 24/7 operations, changing out light bulbs often meant shutting down aisles for access, which directly impacted productivity and revenue.
