As one of the leading sheet and plate metal fabricators in the Northeast region, Brakewell Steel Fabricators specializes in nearly everything made of metal. Their specialty includes but is not limited to superior capabilities including shearing, CNC Punching, CNC plasma burning, custom brake forming, welding and several others. Some of their most well-known projects include repairs at the George Washington Bridge, perimeter enclosures at Ground Zero at the World Trade Center and stair well treads within the Statue of Liberty in New York City. With such a magnitude of production, illumination levels must be sufficient. Brakewell has been in Chester, NY now almost 40 years, it’s possible to imagine how beneficial reliable lighting could be for such grand scale work. A total of thirty three metal halides were replaced using Big Shine LED’s high bay fixtures. The new lights installed by Big Shine Energy more than tripled the foot candles and now provide a bright and safer environment for their staff. Before After
Based out of Paterson, NJ, ABBA Metals specializes in welding and metal fabrication. In specialties such as metal work, which require lengthy hours of concentration, proper lighting is essential. Quality light makes a difference in the level of productivity and overall performance, LED technology provides the proper illumination to get the job done day in and day out. Big Shine Energy replaced visibly outdated high bay fixtures with 90W and 130W LED Probe fixtures. The difference – a safer, illuminated space at a significantly lower cost. See the quality results for yourself below.
Innovative Plastics Corporation, a company long trusted by some of the world’s most prestigious brands in various industries such as Duracell, Sony and Gillette. Known for their “green” efforts, they chose Big Shine Energy to take the next step in sustainability. These efforts include highly efficient air compressors, solar panels and a closed loop cooling water system. Their next step, LED Lighting. By changing their old fluorescent tubes and several other non-efficient lighting fixtures to Big Shine LED tubes, they are now eliminating the usage of over 338,000 kW/h a year- that’s a savings of $261,213.00 over the next ten years. With the new LED lighting, not only are they further reducing their carbon footprint but creating a brighter and more productive work space for continuous innovations.
In November 2015, B&S Sheet Metal Company of Hawthorne, NJ decided to transform their facility with LED lighting. Fluorescent T8 tubes at 175W were originally used to light this metal shop along with 21 metal halides at 458 watts.By switching to Big Shine LED Panels at 72 Watts and an Apus 1 at 150 watts, energy consumption decreased by approximately 4,000 kW per year. Not only are they conserving energy and saving thousands over the years but they are also making their mark towards a greener world. Their impact is equivalent to the removal of 44869 lbs. of CO2 emissions.
Kloeckner Metals is a 150,000 sq. ft. facility specializing in both ferrous and non-ferrous metals in multiple forms. With such a high volume of activity, Kloeckner Metals counts on reliable lighting to illuminate its production space. Incorporating sixty 150W Big Shine LED Satellite HD high bays among other Big Shine LED lights, more than 80 fixtures were upgraded, conserving over 28,000 kilowatts a year and providing a safer work environment for all team members. Big Shine Energy worked together with Gene Klessor, general manager at Kloeckner in Middletown to work around the company’s busy schedule. Gene recognized this as a turn-key service and a beginning of a new relationship rather than just a change in lighting.
