  • Lamp efficacy

    Lamp efficacy

    Lamp efficacy is important because the amount of light emitted from a light source (in lumens) compared to the amount of power used by the light source to produce it (in Watts) is key for energy efficiency. All of the luminaires chosen for this project use the latest LED technology and therefore have a high lamp efficacy and low energy consumption.

  • Ballast classification

    Ballast classification

    Controlling the electricity supply to the lamp (Energy Efficiency Index).

  • Luminaire distribution

    Luminaire distribution

    HiPak Pro LED features dedicated individual LED optics for precise light control. This optimised luminaire distribution allows a single row of well-spaced luminaires to be used to correctly light the space. In turn, the quantity of fittings and therefore overall energy consumption is reduced.

  • System efficacy

    System efficacy

    Combining optical and thermal control within the luminaire (luminaire lm/W).

  • Presence/absence detection

    Presence/absence detection

    Lighting controls used in conjunction with HiPak Pro LED detect when the space is empty and automatically turn the lights off to prevent energy being wasted.

  • Daylight detection

    Daylight detection

    Artificial lighting which responds to the natural light conditions.

  • Constant illuminance

    Constant illuminance

    A function designed to produce correct light levels for the duration of the maintenance period.

  • Task-scene setting

    Task-scene setting

    Allowing the user to set scenes and adapt the lighting to different tasks.

  • Timed off

    Timed off

    Automatic cut-off can be installed to turn all lights off during unoccupied hours.

  • Task lighting

    Task lighting

    Lighting task areas with the correct amount of light.

  • Zoning of lighting

    Zoning of lighting

    Lighting is zoned according to area use.

  • Maintenance schedule

    Maintenance schedule

    Maintenance must be performed in response to product age, performance and environment.

  • Waste light

    Waste light

    Eliminating waste light which does not hit the intended target.

  • Reflectance


    Taking advantage of light which is reflected from the surface within the space.

  • Visible smart metering

    Visible smart metering

    Results of actions can be quickly seen as increased or decreased energy use to encourage responsible energy consumption.

A returning Thorn customer, FM Logistic once again approached Thorn to provide the lighting for the new FM Logistic Blonie storage and office facility in Blonie, Poland. FM Logistic chose to return to Thorn on the basis of the quality and technical functionality of its products.

Lighting objective

The lighting objectives for this new 13,600m2 building were to achieve an energy efficient lighting scheme which would provide an attractive return on investment and low maintenance throughout the products’ lifetime.

Lighting solution

For the storage area, Thorn’s HiPak Pro LED offered a solution which would meet all of FM Logistic’s objectives. A robust, low maintenance and energy saving industrial LED high bay luminaire (93Llm/W), HiPak Pro LED is up to 45% more energy efficient than 250/400W alternatives. An integral PIR sensor and DALI dimming maximise energy savings while a dedicated body profile and on board thermal management system ensure LED performance and lifetime.

For the technical rooms Thorn’s Aquaforce II LED IP65 rated luminaire offered a high quality low energy solution. Highly efficient LED (102Llm/W) reduce energy consumption and costs while maximising maintenance lifecycles. Finally, for the offices, Thorn’s Omega LED (75Llm/W) provided the ideal solution with an energy consumption of half that of a 4x18W (T8) fluorescent alternative. Omega LED also offers the added benefit of adjustable mounting options for through-life flexibility.

Results and benefits

All the luminaires installed in the new FM Logistic Blonie facility are LED and have high levels of energy efficiency to ensure low energy consumption. With all the luminaires additionally benefiting from a long 50,000-hour lifetime, maintenance is minimised to save both the cost and inconvenience of frequent maintenance cycles. FM Logistic will benefit from a maximum payback time of five years.

Key facts

  • Energy efficient LED lighting maximises energy savings
  • Long 50,000-hour luminaire lifetime minimises maintenance
  • Maximum payback time of five years
