Parkersell has replaced the lighting in this newly occupied factory of Tower Doors to reduce energy consumption and deliver better lighting.

New and more efficient lighting has been installed in the new factory of Tower Doors in Glasgow with interest-free finance from Loan Scotland, designed to support energy-saving investments.

Parkersell managed the entire lighting programme — from the design through to the implementation and management stage. Obsolete 8 ft fluorescent strips were replaced with triphosphor colour 840 reflex batons.

The older tubes are around 20% less efficient than other triphosphor tubes, incurring higher running costs. Their very high mercury content and bulky shape have also contributed to their demise.
