Aura Eco Saver Long Life for the environment
Before Cadbury decided to go with Aura Long Life lamps they compared other manufacturers. ”We felt that Aura Light’s profile was the best fit for our vision of reducing the impact on the environment”, explains Karl Bowen.
Cadbury chose to install Aura T5 Eco Saver Long Life lamps which reduces the energy consumption and is the most environmentally friendly T5 lamp on the market. ”Used in conjunction with low energy gear trays we can realize energy savings of at least 45% per twin T5 fitting compared to our standard T8 fitting. We will also realize financial benefits due to a longer mean time between failure thus reducing our maintenance and disposal costs”, says Karl Bowen.
