MJJJ Developments Inc. is a local design and build firm that has been in business for over three decades. They provide services such as: concrete work, excavation, foundation, landscaping and general construction of residential and commercial buildings. Fusion Electrical Contractors brought us the challenge of lighting the MJJJ Development garage for their heavy duty equipment in Caledon, Ontario.
Choosing lighting for this space meant that the fixtures needed to have a high lumen output, low glare, be able to withstand the extreme wash down areas and be resistant to dust, dirt and mud.

GARAGE + WASH BAY FOR HEAVY DUTY EQUIPMENT
Sixty BoxLED® high-bays were installed and mounted with ceiling and flood configurations. The main garage has ceiling height of 35-feet and a lower level with a height of 25-feet. The BoxLED® HO and LO models were used in order for the floor to be clearly and evenly illuminated. Another requirement for this space was to make sure the operators are safe while moving the equipment. Due to its unique louver design and tempered glass diffuser, the BoxLED® has earn its Risk Group 0 (risk-free) rating, which means there is no photobiological hazard. These fixtures will reduce workplace fatigue due to glare and provide visual comfort when working in the garage.
The BoxLED® is IP66 and NEMA 4X rated, making it resistant to high pressure wash area conditions and protected from ice formation in the non-heated parts of the garage. Due to the dirty, dusty and wet site conditions, it is important that the luminaires are made from durable, die-cast aluminum material. With a lifespan of L80 @ >60,000 hrs, the BoxLED® is virtually maintenance free and will save MJJJ Developments the cost of constantly maintaining the light fixtures. To save on energy, Fusion Electrical Contractors grouped the fixtures together and installed occupancy sensors to turn the BoxLEDs off when the equipment is parked. By reducing the hours the garage is illuminated they will increase the life of the product and will save on overhead costs.
