Royal Jersey Agricultural & Horticultural Society

The RJA&HS recently expanded their premises with a 700m2 extension to their 900m2 indoor showroom. VIVILITE's 100W and 150W LED High Bay's were used for the new build as well as replace units in their existing showroom.

VIVILITE won the tender to lead the lighting for the project which saw the Society increase their floorspace to incorporate shows, exhibitions, competitions, demonstrations and lectures that encourage the practice of good agriculture and horticulture in Jersey.

Lighting was an important part of the plan because we knew that the right light output can have an effect on milk yield. Research has shown that switching to LED lighting can increase the milk yield by up to 10%. We are very happy with the results.

James Godfrey - RJA&HS CEO

RJA&HS and VIVILITE worked together to ensure the right units were used for the project. We created professional lighting plans to maximise the best possible use and positioning of the lights. 

Our range of LED lighting is perfect for agricultural use which are >IP65 rated making them water and dust proof and have undergone vibration & shock testing during manufacturing which ensures the units are robust. With our range being DALI Dimmable by default and giving you the option for Microwave and Daylight sensors, the lux level can remain uniform throughout the building. Increasing your savings even more.
