Zumtobel – getting the job done for Clipper Logistics

Client has 10 million sq. ft. of warehousing space over 46 sites
Zumtobel Lighting has supplied over 1,000 TECTON luminaires for the refurbishment of Clipper Logistics plc warehouse located at the M1 Junction 15 near Northampton. Both companies have an unrivalled reputation for always getting the job done no matter how challenging or complex and that was certainly the case on this project. In order to fulfil the brief, Zumtobel had to find a solution to switch each batten individually instead of the entire row and the battens also had to have corridor function with the capability of switching off.

As one of the UK’s leading logistics provider, Clipper Logistics plc has 10 million sq. ft. of warehousing space over 46 sites and a fleet of over 300 vehicles, with a nimble and effective approach that adapts to the changing demands of retail with cutting edge logistics solutions. The sorter transports parcels and totes to discharge at 28 destination chutes and is currently operating at 4400 sorts per hour during peak operational periods, with the existing 7 induct positions. The company’s specialist warehousing services include handling/boxed storage, high value security cages, customs warehousing, seasonal relief warehousing and picking to customer requirement.  The sorter transports parcels and totes to discharge at 28 destination chutes which descend from mezzanine to ground level.

With such an immense operation, it was crucial that the lighting met all the criteria required including good colour rendition, low maintenance, energy savings and flexibility - TECTON LED provided the perfect solution.  Used throughout the racking areas and open spaces, TECTON LED continuous row system merges light source, batten luminaire and reflector into a single visual, functional unit that provides uninterrupted light lines. Quick to install, this end-to-end solution has a service life of 50,000 hours at 70% luminous flux and an efficiency of up to 168 lm per W, resulting in less expenditure on maintenance, fewer interruptions to work, and reduced energy consumption. An integrated sensor pre-programmed to the required functions was also incorporated.

In addition to TECTON, Zumtobel’s RESCLITE PRO, small, energy-efficient LED spots with finely optimised optics provide the emergency lighting throughout the space. This emergency solution can be perfectly adapted to suit the requirements of different spatial environments and trusted to maintain maximum safety. The system is used in conjunction with ONLITE central eBOX, the unobtrusive system that offers building safety with maximum flexibility. eBOX allows simple commissioning, combined with highly efficient operation and a nominal environmental footprint. More than just a control centre for the emergency power supply, eBOX has been optimised for use with LED technology ad can operate up to 30 electrical circuits and 600 safety and escape sign luminaires
