Van den Heuvel B V

Werkendam, Netherlands

The Van den Heuvel company was founded on April 4, 1949 and at that time was primarily active in road construction and waterworks. Van den Heuvel, Werkendam, established in 2001, design, build and supply high quality machinery in the field of pile driving, hoisting and compaction.

The Thoroproof and Solow LED luminaires combined with SmartScan controls were selected for the main areas of the facility.
The Thoroproof is an anti-corrosive IP65 luminaire with an injection moulded polycarbonate body and frosted prismatic polycarbonate cover, both fire-retardant. The Solow LED has been designed to provide low through life cost by keeping energy and maintenance costs to a minimum. Available with narrow and broad distribution options using high performance diffusers and a high efficiency light chamber, the Solow LED achieves up to 35,650 lumens and 135.0 luminaire lumens per circuit watt.

The Challenge

The existing fluorescent lighting installed in 2001 was due for replacement, it was old,
worn out and also maintenance-sensitive. In addition, it was costly to run and no longer met strict laws and fire safety regulations.

The Solution

A Lightronics light engineer surveyed the site at Werkendam to determine the most efficient lighting solution for each room
calculated on the basis of the European lighting standard: EN12464. The plan was discussed with Van den Heuvel, and the relevant installer, and tested against the expectations of both parties.
Thorlux by Lightronics luminaires combined with the Smartscan wireless lighting management system were chosen. Integral sensors monitor ambient light and presence, control output to the correct level, dim and switch when there is sufficient daylight and illuminate only when the area is occupied.
