Fuller's pubs are the (retro) light at the end of the tunnel

LED Eco Lights has announced that Bright Goods LED filament lamps are being installed throughout the Fuller’s managed pub estate to reduce energy and maintenance costs. The project has been designed, managed and delivered by the Light Corporation. Bright Goods LED filament lamps from LED Eco Lights were first installed in The Sail Loft, a newly built Fuller’s pub in Greenwich, in a lighting scheme created by the Light Corporation.

The Sail Loft is part of the new Greenwich Reach development, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows on three sides and a large terrace facing the Thames with views of Canary Wharf, Cutty Sark and the O2 Arena. Its interior takes inspiration from its location, and features nautical touches and maritime bric-a-brac adorning the walls.

Tim Henderson, Director of The Light Corporation, said: “We gave the lighting a nautical spin, locating the Bright Goods lamps within basket-style lampshades for example. Bright Goods LED filament lamps are in a class of their own for this kind of setting, offering energy efficient LED technology in a warm, retro style that perfectly suited the ambiance of the pub. The Sail Loft is a large open plan site able to seat 300 people – yet the lighting makes it feel intimate especially in the evening.”

Fuller’s was impressed with both the appearance of the lights and the energy efficiencies achieved, and contracted the Light Corporation to survey a substantial part of its managed estate of just under 200 pubs, and recommend low energy Bright Goods LED replacements for each light on the premises. Bright Goods LED lamps are also being fitted into existing Fuller’s pubs as they are refurbished and to other new pubs as they are built. Pubs completed include The Tea Merchant, Canary Wharf; The Pilot, Chiswick; The Queen’s Head, Hammersmith; The Hydrant, Monument; The Pilgrim Inn, Southampton; The White Hart Hotel, Hampton and The William Walker, Winchester.

Commenting, Peter Turner, Property Director at Fuller’s said: “We were very impressed with the appearance of Bright Goods LED lights. They provide illumination that is as warm and welcoming as a filament bulb, maintaining the all-important ambience of the pub in the evening. It is also highly controllable, and can be dimmed as required. It allows us to maintain a traditional feel while reducing our carbon footprint.”

Saima Shafi, Sales and Marketing Director of LED Eco Lights, added: “Bright Goods LED lamps can in many cases be slotted directly into a fitting to replace the existing filament, fluorescent or halogen lamp, reducing the replacement cost and enhancing the return on investment. In some cases, the energy saving can be as much as 75% - reducing carbon emissions by over 40 tonnes per year.”
