Companies with premises that already have T8 fixtures may be interested in the new retrofit kit from LUXADD, which enables them to switch to more energy efficient T5 smilight tubes.
The Express T5 Retrofit Kit for T8 was designed to help firms based in properties already kitted out with older, less efficient fittings.
According to the manufacturer, those who make the switch to more efficient smilight tubes could see their lighting energy use drop by as much as 60 per cent.
As well as the reduction in electricity bills, companies may also enjoy lower maintenance costs as the energy saving light bulbs can last for up to 75 per cent longer than their predecessors.
Thomas Hoffman, partner at LUXADD, commented: "Unfortunately, many decision makers of new installations have chosen the less efficient T8 technology due to their non awareness of the new T5 technology."
According to the 2011 Energy Efficiency Indicator Global Survey by the Institute for Building Efficiency, lighting has been the most popular area for improvement in business premises this year.
