CPD seminar – Lighting: The retrofit revolution

The move to LEDs has been a major disruptive technology shift for the lighting industry, which has opened up new opportunities as light source efficiency has rapidly increased. It is now entirely feasible to consider retrofitting luminaires that may only be a few years old, and those luminaires that are ripe for refurbishment could even include early LED versions, given the pace of improvement.

This CIBSE accredited CPD seminar examines the benefits and challenges of retrofitting luminaires with the latest LED technology. We will explore current opportunities, the case for energy and maintenance, as well as the regulatory framework and CE compliance. We also discuss the risks of VOC’s and poor thermal management when considering LED light sources.

CPD seminar – Robust Lighting

This CIBSE accredited CPD seminar looks at how challenging environments are illuminated. We examine vandal resistance, adverse weather conditions, ease of maintenance and through life costs. 

Product standards are explained, including IK (EN 62262) and IP (EN60529) ratings. We identify the manufacturing processes used to ensure luminaire durability and analyse the light source, dispelling the myths surrounding the use of LEDs.

Finally, we will look at some challenging applications in detail. We focus on transport, social housing, custodial, secure healthcare and urban exterior.

CPD seminar – Emergency Lighting for challenging environments

This CIBSE accredited CPD seminar looks at why we need emergency lighting and who is responsible for ensuring compliance.  We examine specifics including typical applications, system definitions and exit sign requirements. We analyse the pros and cons of different system types and examine changes to BS5266-1:2016.

Best practice tips will be provided regarding battery management and lighting design. The CPD seminar concludes with several case studies. We identify specific emergency lighting requirements in social housing, custodial, secure healthcare and transport applications.
