Bring your lighting up to date

Modern lighting. Low costs. Sustainable future.

Would you like to update your lighting and benefit from the advantages of energy-efficient lighting?

Then a good refurbishment concept is the perfect solution for you! We bring your lighting up to date and not only improve your energy / environmental balance and lighting quality but also help you save costs.

Why a rehabilitation project is more important now than ever before

The EU has banned the marketing of e.g. fluorescent lamps T5, T8 and halogen lamps and will implement this ban gradually in 2023.

The previous conventional light sources contain toxic substances such as mercury or lead, which have a considerable negative impact on our environment and pollute it heavily. In addition, the energy consumption of conventional light sources is many times higher than that of modern LED lighting. This ban should help reduce the negative environmental impact of lighting and accelerate the transition to energy-efficient LED lighting. 

Switching to modern LED lighting systems not only offers a sustainable solution to reduce the environmental impact of toxic substances, but also a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. By converting to LED lighting systems, companies can significantly reduce their CO2 emissions and cut their energy costs at the same time.

What does that mean for you?

Companies whose conventional lighting fails will no longer be able to source replacement lamps. It is therefore worthwhile to take action at an early stage and bring the lighting up to date before a failure occurs that could possibly lead to business interruptions. A sound refurbishment concept offers an ideal opportunity here to obtain an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly lighting solution that complies with current specifications and standards. By upgrading to LED lighting, companies can also benefit from significant savings in energy and maintenance costs, thereby also ensuring a reduction in CO2 emissions. At the same time, the quality of light and the service life of the products can be significantly increased by switching to LED lamps.


The ban on fluorescent lamps and other conventional lighting offers an opportunity not only to improve the environmental footprint, but also to increase the productivity and well-being of employees. Modern LED lighting solutions can improve the quality of light and thus contribute to higher concentration, motivation and a generally better working environment.

YES to refurbishment - NO to retrofit

Retrofit solutions are not the best choice!

Retrofit solutions are a way of converting existing lighting systems to LED technology by replacing light sources. They are often touted as a cost-effective and simple alternative to a complete new installation of lighting systems. However, the negative aspects of retrofit lamps are often overlooked or concealed.

Replacing conventional fluorescent lamps with LED luminaires can reduce energy consumption, but it is usually not possible to exploit the full potential. New LED luminaires are specifically designed for LED technology and offer higher energy efficiency. They are also more reliable, longer-lasting and offer better light quality than most retrofit solutions.

Higher energy efficiency through new LED luminaires

When it comes to energy efficiency, new LED luminaires are clearly superior to retrofit solutions. Compared to retrofitting old lighting systems, new LED luminaires offer higher energy efficiency and greater savings in energy costs.

Lower maintenance costs due to new LED luminaires

Investing in new LED luminaires can lead to lower maintenance and servicing costs in the long term. Compared to retrofit solutions, new LED luminaires are more reliable and durable, resulting in less downtime and less need for maintenance.

Poorer light quality due to retrofit solutions

Retrofit solutions can lead to poorer lighting quality because they are often not optimally matched to the existing lighting systems and optics. New LED luminaires usually offer higher colour rendering and more uniform illumination of the room. This can contribute to a more pleasant and productive working environment.

Why 1:1 replacement is the better alternative to retrofit

NO to retrofit

  • Refurbishments with retrofit lamps are not subsidised
  • Test marks lose their validity after use of the retrofit lamp
  • Light distribution deviations, the luminaire can dazzle
  • Lighting quality changes compared to the previous system
  • Efficiency properties are not matched to the existing reflector technology
  • Problems with light dimming and emergency lighting
  • Less sustainable and lower savings due to higher energy demand
  • Higher risk of failure. due to older technology and lack of compatibility

YES to the 1:1 exchange

  • Refurbishments with 1:1 exchange are eligible for funding
  • New complete luminaires have test marks
  • State-of-the-art LED luminaires with optimised lighting technology
  • Due to the use of modern LED luminaires, the failure rate over the entire service life is very low
  • Fulfilment of contemporary requirements for lighting quality
  • Demand-led lighting management is possible
  • Greater flexibility
  • Greater potential for savings
