Light up your workshop, keep costs down

The cost of living crisis is significantly impacting New Zealand households and businesses. Surging energy prices, just one of the rising costs companies must deal with, are often passed onto customers.

For businesses, LED lighting can be a cost-effective and power-efficient solution to help with rising costs. While many operators use halide or halogen lights, they involve more costs and downtime.

LEDs are far more efficient than halogen bulbs. While halogens generate a large amount of heat, the heat created with LEDs is far less, helping save energy.

LEDs tend to last much longer and are more energy-efficient and less maintenance-intensive. Metal halides have long warm-up periods and a shorter lifespan. LEDs also emit a whiter and brighter light than most halogen options and provide up to 50,000 hours of life. If operated for 60 hours per week, this equates to up to 16 years of maintenance-free life for a single purchase.

The OEX 200W High Bay Workshop Light is a simple plug-in replacement for 240V halogen or halide high-bay lights. It delivers energy-efficient, crisp white LED lighting to the workshop, reducing energy consumption and lowering the electricity bill.

The OEX High Bay Light is a no-maintenance lighting solution. There is no need to replace globes or spare parts, and the robust die-cast aluminium housing is sealed to a weatherproof IP65 rating.

OEX High Bay lights provide a massive light output of 28,700 lumens, enough to illuminate a workshop or warehouse up to 15m high. Because they are much brighter than halide lights, fewer lights are required to fill a workshop space.

The OEX lights plug into a standard 240V mains socket and come with an IP65 weatherproof rating – water-resistant and suitable for outdoor use with full protection against dust ingress. They offer a bright white 5700K colour temperature and come in a die-cast aluminium body for heat dissipation. They are also backed by a five-year warranty.
