Energy Efficient Lighting Upgrades From Newspace

posted: 7th Nov 2017

As part of Newspace Containers continuous drive to improve their product offering, they have announced the implementation of a rolling programme of replacing all four and five feet single fluorescent batten & IP65 rated fittings, with comparable five feet “LED Ready” fittings.

Both types of fittings will be equipped with A+ rated CROMPTON LED T8 tubes. These should achieve a typical energy saving of approximately 60% & also more than double the operating life, delivering positive environmental benefits.

As this programme is implemented, one of the first of its kind to be announced by a portable building manufacturer, the existing lighting specifications will automatically be upgraded during manufacture.

The upgrade will be carried out at no additional cost to the customer. 

The full specification of the LED tubes can be viewed here:-


Rob Weeks, Head of Sales at Newspace commented, “With the company manufacturing 3,000 buildings annually, the energy savings associated with this upgrade will definitely impact favourably on the UK’s carbon footprint. We have several other projects in the pipeline to build further on this initiative.”

Newspace Containers, operating from a large multi acre site in Lydney, Gloucestershire, are one of the leading manufacturers of steel anti vandal accommodation buildings, with a proven track record in supplying the portable accommodation hire industry in the UK.
