Perpetua CrossFit, a self proclaimed 'world-class hybrid gym chain in London,' is set to make up to 70 per energy savings following the replacement of its old fluorescent lighting, with long life, energy efficient ones from Goodlight.

Situated in the railway arches near Battersea Power Station, CrossFit Perpetua has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment.

According to Goodlight, the G5 LED Battens which were installed as part of the make-over, are on track to provide a return on investment within 18 months. G5 LED Battens, which come in size variants ranging from 2-5ft,  will last for 50,000 hours, can be installed in under 10 minutes and are IP65 certified, meaning they are protected against elements such as water, dust, ice, heat and corrosion. Pricing is up to around £110. 

Commenting, Michael Price, Founder and CEO of CrossFit Perpetua said, “As part of the refurbishment programme, we were keen to adopt LED lighting, not only for the obvious reduction in energy costs but we wanted a light that resembled natural daylight which is exactly what we have achieved. "

He added: "We chose Goodlight LED lighting because we loved the design and the G5 LED Battens are very sleek and fit well into a modern space. The CrossFit brand is a streamlined design and the lights blend in beautifully.”

Goodlight supplied CrossFit Perpetua with G5 LED Battens which deliver very high levels of light output, offering up to 110 Lm/W. They were a drop-in replacement for the outdated 5ft twin fluorescent tubes and installation took just two days. The G5 is a glass-free LED Batten that features a 120° beam angle for optimal light spread, making it a perfect linear LED lighting choice for leisure environments. They require no ongoing maintenance and have a lifespan of 50,000 hours over a 5 year guarantee.

Since installation, CrossFit Perpetua’s carbon footprint has been slashed from 13,253kg to 4,760kg per year, representing an impressive 64 per cent saving in CO².

He continued, “We’ve received great feedback from our clients who are enjoying the fresher, crisper, brighter light and aesthetically they give a new feel to the place. Since the installation, we have been very impressed with the light quality which is evenly spread across the facility.”
