Feilo Sylvania wins the race at Decathlon
Global lighting manufacturer Feilo Sylvania has successfully completed a project in one of the world’s largest sporting goods retailers, Decathlon. Syl-Line HSX units have been installed to provide high performance light,reflecting the top of the range sports products found within the south London store.
As part of Decathlon’s expansion programme, a UK based lighting solutions business, Swann Lighting Limited, was appointed to provide a lighting scheme for the Wandsworth store in the Southside Shopping centre. Showcasing cycling, running and outdoor equipment meant the quality of light on the shop floor had to be good, whilst minimising energy consumption and heat output.
All lighting had to be quick and easy to install, use a trunking backbone system and have the option for integrated emergency lighting and DALI dimming. Feilo Sylvania worked in partnership with Swann Lighting to install a combination of Sylvania Syl-Line HSX units, mounted onto 3.4m Syl-Line trunking, and additional bespoke Swann Lighting luminaires; all installed to deliver impressive light output and fast installation times.
Charlie Brooks, Managing Director of Ciexbe (installer), comments: “Installation is ultimately driven by costs and speed and for this particular project, Feilo Sylvania was great on costs. When the trunking arrived, we put it up straight away and powered it up then, when the lights arrived, we added them in and within hours we had illuminated the whole store.
HSX Syl-Line is a sleek, unobtrusive design, consisting of a one-piece module which considerably increases speed of installation, whilst reducing the complexity against traditional trunking systems. The first stage of the installation requires the supply to be pulled into the end fitting. The trunking can then be fixed to the free hung suspension and secured with a mechanical lock, with the luminaire then being presented to the trunking. The HSX Syl- Line, on average, offers 50% energy savings versus traditional trunking systems.
