Ford Auto Dealer Replaces 400W Metal Halides with Foreverlamp LED Retrofit Lamps and the Results Speak for themselves.

South Bay Ford replaces inefficient 400W Metal Halide lamps with Foreverlamp GS Series and the results speak for themselves.

THE SITUATION:

At the South Bay Ford dealership, mechanics were starting to bring in their own lighting equipment such as light bars, to pro[perly light the bay areas where they serviced vehicles.  The dealership needed an easy to install solution to replace their existing 400W Metal Halide lamps to improve the overall light quality in the work place.

CITY:  South Bay, CA.

COUNTRY: USA

UNITS PER LOCATION: 200+

CATEGORY: Auto

LIGHT EFFECT: Uplight / Downlight

PRODUCT: GS-400U-VHO-850

THE SOLUTION:

Foreverlamp’s easy to install retrofit solution was the GS Series lamp.  Maintenance staff simply needed to unscrew the existing metal halide lamps and replace them with the Foreverlamp GS-400U-VHO-850 retrofit lamp.  Foreverlamps do not require any wiring or reconfiguration and/or contractors to install. It is a true plug and play lamp solution with each lamp designed to work with the existing magnetic ballast and sockets. Installation simply involves, unscrewing the existing lamp and replacing it with a Foreverlamp.

“One service bay mechanic told us he purchased his own light bar to mount on the car engine compartment hoods so he could see the engine compartments.”
