Case Study

Valiants Farm, located in Preston, has just undergone a lighting overhaul. The showground, where the lighting upgrade has taken place, is a converted Equestrian Centre now used to host some of the biggest underground electronic music events in the UK.

The showground is large and required top lighting performance. The kind of performance that Ansell’s Z LED Performance UFO High Bay can deliver in more ways than one.

The Z LED Performance has power in abundance. Coming in 100W which exceeds performance of 150W HQI, 150W and 200W. The UFO features a die-cast powder coated construction and heatsink for optimum thermals and performance making it the ultimate robust LED low/high bay perfect for industrial, commercial and retail applications.

Ansell products are designed with installers in mind. That’s why it comes with alternative installation options by means of drop rods, jack chain and catenary wire. Z LED Performance is pre-wired with 3M of H07RN-F cable for ease and speed of installation and bracket accessories are also available for ceiling or wall mounting.

Adding to what is already a great feature set is an LED lifespan L80 B10 54,000 hours and five year warranty. Giving installers the peace of mind that the Z LED Performance is a solution they can rely on for a wide range of projects.

The performance enhanced UFO also boats high specification IP65 and IK08 ratings.

IP65 - Protected from total dust ingress. Protected from low pressure water jets from any direction.

IK08 - Protected against 5 joules of impact (the equivalent to the impact of a 1.7kg mass dropped from 300mm above the impacted surface).

The installation of Ansell products didn’t stop with just the Z LED Performance, the contractors took full of advantage of Ansell’s large product offering. As with all venues, emergency lighting is a must. Our Guardian LED, Encore LED and IP66 Owl Twin Spot were also installed at the showground.

Our Emergency lighting offering is full of great solutions. Our portfolio provides you with many options so you can find the perfect emergency lighting for your project.

The Guardian, a popular choice, is an ultra-slim profile LED polycarbonate bulkhead which is supplied with a self-adhesive legend and features 20mm side, end and rear cable entries. Guardian also comes with a hinged screwless gear tray for ease of installation The viewing distance for the bulkhead is currently 18 metres.

The Encore LED is an ultra slim, modern LED exit sign with a self-test option also available. The exit sign has a neat picture frame appearance compared to conventional fluorescent exit signs and all legend options - arrow down, arrow up and arrow left/right are supplied. The viewing distance for the Encore is currently 29 metres.

Finally, we have the IP66 Owl LED Twin Spot. A self-test Twin LED emergency floodlight for industrial applications. Owl LED exceeds performance of 2x20W halogen equivalent and comes in a robust white moulded enclosure. Perfect for applications such as the Valiants Farm Showground.

The project was carried out professionally and was a smashing success. The showground’s lighting upgrade will allow the venue to run more efficiently, reliably and a lot more cost effective for the owners going forward.
