Federal Buildings | San Francisco, CAW1PL50
Before - 150W High Pressure
This project covers the access between two federal buildings on Sansome Street in Downtown San Francisco. The area is used for government parking of Homeland Security and loading, unloading, and transfer of federal prisoners associated with security to our nation.
This area had been using High Pressure Sodium, creating an orange col- ored glow with glare at the source, but very litle useable light. The fixtures were using 1.2 amps of power each, and required constant maintenance with short lamp life. Due to the critical nature of the work performed, light and security are a high priority.
Fixtures were up-graded from high pressure sodium (1.2 Amp/unit) fixtures to our Magnaray® #W1PL50 (.5 amp/unit) fixtures for energy savings of 55+%. While energy reduction is always a goal, the main objective here was to provide security for the officers and employees of the Homeland Security and other government agencies, which use this area constantly. The main goal of increased security was met with a 400+% increase in use- able light, while our secondary goal of energy reduction was accomplished with 55+% savings.
After - Magnaray® 50W of white light, accurate color rendition
Product and Lamp:
