A Blackpool lighting installation firm is advising retailers to ask the right questions about LEDs.

Greenlite Lighting Solutions recommends that retailers make sure they’re being sold the lighting solutions that are right for them and their merchandise – especially when it comes to LEDs.

The specialist in green lighting said that businesses should assess the quality of LEDs before purchase and stress-test all parties within the supply chain.

It warned that they should check if the warranty included only product replacement or a full return-to-site replacement.

Greenlite also warned that retailers should look for evidence that the solution will reduce energy as well as increase footfall within the shop.

Andy Chell, Sales and Marketing Manager at Greenlite, said: “Many lighting companies – especially LED-only companies – will try and sell the products they have, rather than seek out options best suited to the individual retailer.

“It can be better to use an independent lighting supplier that has no bias towards a particular manufacturer or technology.”
