Friedman’s Appliance in Long Beach, CA - a medium sized retail store

Case Study

We replaced 52 of the existing 400 watt metal halide lights with our ALC 5000 Series 100-watt single chip high-bay lights. In this particular project we included the installation of the lighting as part of the sales agreement.

Case Study

This photo shows that we used the existing electrical drops that were in place from the original 400 watt metal halide. Because of the uniform light distribution it was not necessary to realign the existing grid.

Case Study

In this instance we were asked to put bottom diffusers on the acrylic shields. This was a design preference that the owners felt created a mood conducive to sales.

Case Study

A different view of the Long Beach store. Notice the even distribution of the cool white light.

The owner Bob Atkins has repeatedly told us that his electrical bill has dropped dramatically and his A/C does not go on as often with the new lights. He even says that his sales are up 20% since the lights were installed!

Case Study

Wall packs using 32 watt LED single chips replaced 150 watt metal halide. The light is very bright with a cool white appearance - no performance was sacrificed with the reduced wattage LED lights.

Case Study

Using existing lighting poles, no major modifications were necessary when installing new LED lights. This picture shows 100 watt LED chips in a typical “shoebox” configuration that replaced 400 watt metal halide lights that were positioned on 20’ high poles.

We expect all American LED Company lights to deliver quality performance for a minimum of 10 years without additional maintenance. This is especially meaningful to public works facilities and private buildings where lighting is continuous from dusk to dawn. In this case, we were able to reduce electrical consumption by over 60% without sacrificing the lighting’s effectiveness.

Valencia High School - main gymnasium

Click on the thumbnails on the bottom or arrows on the side to view the lighting solutions provided by American LED Company. For each customer we addressed their specific needs with the perfect LED lighting application.

Case Study

The lights shown here are 200 watt high-bay positioned approximately 20’ above the gym floor. Two 100 watt single chips were used in tandem to produce 32 ft. candles at the floor with a 90 degree spread. These lights were able to retrofit directly to the existing lighting grid.

Case Study

This close-up of the 100 watt LED 5000 series shows the juxtaposition of the 200 watt lights placed over the gym floor with the 100 watt lights positioned over the bleachers. The strategic use of LED technology allows for even greater electricity savings.

Case Study

An overview of the main gym illustrates that even though these lights use less than half of the wattage used in the original metal halide lights, there was no sacrifice in performance. In fact, the original lights started out producing 35ft. candles at the gym floor, but in six months they diminished to less than 31. American LED lights using 100 watt chips achieve 32 ft. candles at a 90 degree spread - and continue to do so for at least 10 years!

The high school has also been able to limit their use of air conditioning in the main gym. The LED lights emit approximately 120 degrees of heat compared to the original 400 watt metal halide lights that run at temperatures in excess of 410 degrees. However, the staff has been particularly impressed by the fact that these lights need no “warm up” or “warm down” time. Unlike the metal halide lights, no ballasts are used which require a 5 minute delay - American LED Company products are instant on and instant off!
