Inner-city development is booming across Australia and REDi-lite is playing a crucial role in delivering exceptional results for forward-thinking developers.
Common areas in apartments and townhouses often require 24 hours a day lighting – in lobbies, hallways, parking lots and utilities areas.
That’s a lot of juice from the grid and significant expense for developers and body corporate as power prices continue to rise year-on-year.
This is where REDi-lite’s extensive range of hybrid lighting system are delivering significant cost savings and efficiency solutions – both in new developments or in retro-fitted properties.
It truly is the smart, clean and innovative lighting solution for commercial developers.
DEMAND AND UPTAKE ON THE RISE
Rob Carbone, from Rincom Technologies in Melbourne, has witnessed first-hand the ever-increasing demand and customer satisfaction from REDi-lite installs.
“People absolutely love them. We find that when we demonstrate the product that people are instantly impressed with the quality of light and the ease of installation.”
“I was the first Melbourne dealer to start with the product and the demand is just unreal in my area within the inner-city developments.”
“There is a lot of demand for REDi-lite in new buildings but also in retro-fitting existing buildings. The simplicity and flexibility of the product is truly taking hold and winning a lot fans.”
LOWER LEVELS NO LONGER MEAN LOWER LIGHT
Rob said one area where REDi-lite shines is combating the lack of natural light that results from increasing density in the lower levels of properties.
“A lot of properties are tightly packed in and that limits the effectiveness of simple windows on the lower levels of these buildings,” Rob explained.
“With REDi-lite that is no longer an issue because you can light up these dark areas without having the ongoing expense of traditional light fittings running constantly on 240 volts.”
A CLEAN AND SIMPLE DESIGN WITH MINIMAL IMPACT
Since REDi-lite does not use a traditional skylight tube design, Rob said that opens up further flexibility in construction and design.
“A traditional skylight to lower levels requires building space be allocated all the way to the roof through the upper levels. That takes up floor space, of course, and brings additional building costs and regulations into play.”
“With REDi-lite as long as we have a solar panel on the roof then we can guarantee light will reach the lower level areas without impacting on the floors in between or on the structure of the roof.”
“You can even use it in the darkest basement structures like underground carparks – that’s something that is very difficult to do with a traditional skylight tube.”
COVERING ALL THE ANGLES
Another major benefit is that REDi-lite does not need a direct source of light to transfer the sun’s rays into usable light.
Rob said he has achieved unrivaled results by strategically linking multiple solar panels to overcome moving shadows cast by existing roof structures and neighbouring buildings.
It is a solution that Rob believes in so much that he has used it in his company’s new headquarters – truly practicing what he preaches.
“We have used the REDi-lite Day-Night Kits which allows us to switch between the solar and the grid. I can choose which source I want to use for the best of both worlds.”
“There is no difference at all between the quality of light and during the day I can run the lighting off the grid.”
“I believe that will deliver us a significant cost saving and return on our investment. Plenty of businesses would see plenty of benefit by making the switch to a similar set-up.”
