Case Study

Stoke Mandeville Hospital is a large National Health Service hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England. Perhaps best known for its internationally acclaimed spinal injuries unit, Stoke Mandeville provides a wide range of services to Buckinghamshire and beyond.

The hospital facilities were in need of a major LED upgrade and the contractor in charge of the project identified Ansell Lighting as the preferred supplier due to our market-leading high quality LED luminaires. Ansell not only pride ourselves on supplying high quality, reliable LED luminaires, we also provide award-winning technical assistance for all contractors giving them as much support as they need before and after installation.

With Stoke Mandeville Hospital being open 24 hours a day, they required cost-effective, reliable and high-quality lighting solutions and Ansell was able to provide them with a variety of our products.

Our Endurance LED Panel was selected by the contractor as it provides high performance and is maintenance-free. The panel also has a white anodised aluminium frame for visual compatibility with the ceiling grid and comes with an LED lifespan of L80 B10 50,000 hours. The Endurance LED Panel provides low glare and even light distribution for multiple applications making it popular within the industry and is UGR<19 (unified glare rating) compliant luminaire assisting to eliminate glare for visual comfort.

The Tornado IP65 LED Non-Corrosive was identified as a product that could deliver on the hospital’s needs with its light output exceeding the performance of T8 and T5 fluorescents. The LED Performance allows point-to-point replacement of existing fluorescent luminaires making it popular amongst contractors. Another key feature of the Tornado is it’s lockable heavy-duty stainless steel clips that are supplied as standard for added safety and security. 

Ansell’s Vasco LED Suspended Linear was another product installed in Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The Vasco comes with an opal diffuser which provides optimal light uniformity and has selectable CCT options between 3000K, 4000K and 6000K output. Supplied bi-directional light output is standard with 70% upward light and 30% downward light ratio (directional only option). The Vasco provides a reliable, cost-effective lighting solution and the reliability is further enforced with an LED lifespan of L90 36,000 hours.

Ansell Lighting was proud to be able to provide the very best lighting solutions for Stoke Mandeville Hospital and provide LED products that could meet their critical needs such as reliability, quality and cost-effectiveness.  The facilities team at the hospital was incredibly happy with the results and Ansell Lighting was able to show again why we are market leaders.
