T-Bar office lighting is the most common type of office lighting. As a Property Manager, you would have come across these types of fittings, however these days with electricity prices on the rise, they are an expensive option to run and electrical maintenance costs can get expensive as these fittings age. A ten year old office building with 100 twin T-Bar Fluorescent fittings could spend up to $6,080 per year on running costs and up to $2,180 per year on maintenance.
There is a simple solution, most office T-Bar lighting can be changed over to a Retrofit LED Panel. It’s a simple process, usually fitting in the exact same spot without any changes to the ceiling. LED panels use less than half the power of a twin fluorescent fitting and there is no maintenance. If we use the above example; a ten year old office building with 100 LED Retrofit panels could spend up to $2,500 per year on running costs and $0.00 per year on maintenance. LED Retrofit panels can be supplied and installed for less than $200 each. They come in different sizes to suit the existing T-Bar ceiling configuration. These savings speak for themselves.
