Luceco and Advanced Interior Solutions (AIS) have recently completed an LED lighting installation at Vinyl Graphics Ltd with LuxBay, a cost-effective LED luminaire ideal for high ceiling mounting positions in industrial and warehouse environments.

digital print company with a reputation for quality and innovation. During the 1980s, VGL introduced the UK’s first


computer aided sign-cutting machine and the company has remained at the forefront of digital print technology ever since. VGL’s production facilities were poorly lit

following the initial base build installation that was inherited when it took the building. Given the high quality graphic works produced

at VGL, there were issues with precision technical equipment not working correctly under the original lighting levels. With the combined expertise of Luceco and

Advanced Interior Solutions, a full lighting design was produced, and luminaires installed to ensure the correct lux levels for the environment. Offering more than 50,000 hours of operational life, LuxBay boasts 105 Llm/cW, is environmentally friendly and requires no maintenance over its lifetime.

Printing production rates have greatly increased following the installation of Luceco’s cost-effective LuxBay LED luminaires at Vinyl Graphics Ltd.

Mounting positions include surface, trunking or suspended and there are options of integrated presence and daylight sensors for use with fixed output or DALI dimmable control gear. Mark Hill from AIS said: “Due to poor levels of lighting from the existing fittings, the print machines at VGL weren’t able to work to full

capacity. With the installation of high- performance LED luminaires, the client has reported that cameras on the machines can decipher colours more efficiently and production rates have greatly increased.” Unitrunk helps futureproof university’s STEMlab scheme

Cable management specialist, Unitrunk, has supplied solutions from its RIS (Rapid Installation Solutions) range for the £17m STEMlab development at the University of Loughborough.


esigned by CPMG Architects and constructed as part of a major campus investment by the University of

Loughborough, the STEMlab scheme provides new engineering, physics, chemistry and bio laboratories for students. The cutting edge facility has the capacity to grow and adapt to the

university’s changing needs, resulting in 25 per cent redundant capacity in the cable management installation to enable the addition of more power and data cabling in the future. The electrical installation was delivered by electrical contractor,

Electract in a 38-week programme following design of the building services for the heavily serviced facility using BIM. The project involved the installation of more than 3km of cable management, including Uniklip cable tray, Easy Connect cable basket and cable trunking. The primary mains cabling was installed using Unitrunk’s single

compartment trunking, while triple compartment trunking for lighting, power and low voltage cabling was laid within the screed along with floor boxes to ensure full distribution at low level without reducing floor to ceiling heights. Richard Hogg from Electract commented: “Unitrunk’s cable management systems have been designed to enable rapid installation

without the need for tools or nuts and bolts, which helped us reduce installation times by around a third, ensuring we were able to deliver the project within the university’s business critical deadlines and enable fit out to commence on time.”
