Shatterproof Lighting

When one speaks of food grade lighting, it usually refers to shatterproof lighting. This specific type of tube is designed to withstand the splintering and shattering of glass in case the tube is broken in any way. The tube has a coating, which is made from flexible plastic (ie: Teflon). The coating will stay intact and retain all the broken pieces of glass and phosphor powder inside the tube. Fluorescent tubes have a long life and high color quality but contain mercury. This made it necessary for the tubes to be shatterproof if used in the food industry. This creates a safer working environment for employees and the products beneath the lighting system and reduces the risk of possible contamination in the food products.

Changing to LED

LED tubes can be a great replacement for food grade lighting as their casing is usually plastic and don't contain mercury. The government is also providing incentives to businesses that change their existing lighting to LED to help offset the costs. If you're looking to upgrade your lighting to LED technology there's no better time.

Incentive Programs have been developed by governmental agencies to encourage upgrades which reduce energy consumption. These measures help businesses to enjoy better overall performance from the lighting system with less energy use from our taxed power grid.

Your property's eligibility for these incentives depends on your location, type of property and its size. In order to qualify for the incentives most agencies in Ontario require the work to be done by licensed electricians. All incentive applications must be submitted and approved before the projects begin. Along with compiling the information required by the Ontario Power Authority, Lighting Solutions can administer the application process on your behalf to ensure you receive your applicable incentive without project delays. Your involvement will be minimal so you'll be able to focus your attention to your business.
