Sometimes We Are Summoned to a Higher Calling

posted in: News | 0

There are service calls and then there are service calls of a higher nature.  Recently Culture Lighting was asked to retrofit a number of 400 watt metal halide lamps that were in the ceiling of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Indianapolis.

Replacing these metal halide lamps with 150 watt LED retrofit kits presented a special challenge.  These lights, which are several stories above the sanctuary floor, would have been difficult to service from below.  Fortunately access to the lights was through the attic.  Although this made it easier in some respects, the attic space was tight and warm.

Long Lasting LED Replacement Lamps
Replace those hard to service lamps that require “extra” maintenance time with LED lamps that operate for over 50,000 hours. By not having to replace these lamps as frequently maintenance costs and time are reduced substantially.
