elcome to the August issue of A1 Lighting! This month we discuss the much-debated LED. For some, it’s a shining beacon of energy saving, maintenance reducing, cost cutting brilliance. But for others, the humble LED just doesn’t make the grade. In this issue we take a look at how LEDs are changing, and whether they are beginning to prove their worth in the design stakes.


We also take a look at the use of lighting as a way of selling products. Some of our most expensive purchases will be made after looking round a showroom, so it is essential that the products on show are lit perfectly. We take a look at how best to light up shopper imaginations!


With changes to the WEEE Directive making things a little more complicated for the lighting industry, we also took the opportunity this month to recap on how to ensure individual businesses comply with regulations by talking to those who have set about to simplify the process.


Finally, we were a very proud bunch this month, after gaining our official ABC Certificate. This means we are now fully ABC accredited and certified rather than membership approved, and we couldn’t be happier! We would like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to all our clients and readers for your continued support.


Certificate issued July 2011.
