Noribachi, a leader in defining informed grid interaction with smart energy products, retrofits outdoor perimeter and walkway lights as well as indoor office lighting at Long Beach Airport in Long Beach, CA.
Noribachi upgraded 75 lights at the airport, replacing metal halide and fluorescent bulbs with ultra-efficient LED bulbs. The new lights offer brighter illumination while requiring approximately 80% less energy, and drastically reduce facility maintenance expenses.
“These LEDs will greatly contribute to our sustainability initiatives as Long Beach Airport endeavors to become one of the greenest airports in the nation,” said Airport Director Mario Rodriguez. “The quality of the LEDs is excellent.”
For their perimeter area and walkway lighting Long Beach Airport worked with Noribachi to select ideal replacements from Noribachi’s Custom LED bulb line, which utilizes a proprietary modular geometry to craft lighting that perfectly satisfies the lighting demands of the application as well as accommodates the existing fixture.
37 Noribachi lin.36 LED bulbs replaced 1000W lamps with just 237W, and 12 Noribachi lin.16 LED bulbs replaced 400W lamps with 115W. The perimeter LED lighting also brings the added benefit of reduced maintenance. Noribachi’s five year warranty, coupled with LED’s incomparable 50,000+ hour lifetime, ensures that the hassles of frequent bulb changes all but fade from facility managers’ minds.
“We selected the Noribachi bulbs for their longer life and reduced maintenance costs,” noted Fred Pena, Facilities Management Officer. “The illumination also greatly enhances security and safety for passengers.”
Noribachi further helped Long Beach Airport improve its facility and reduce its energy bill through the installation of hex.1 LED walkway lighting. Previous walkway lights had drained between 75W and 125W while the new Noribachi LED bulbs only require 22W of power. Additionally, the increase in bulb lifetime that accompanies a Noribachi LED retrofit allows the critically important walkway lights to remain on, keeping travelers safer and more comfortable.
Long Beach Airport also retrofitted their interior office lighting with Noribachi troffer.layin fixtures fitted with Noribachi t8.4ft LED bulbs. Noribachi’s unique LED Prix technology allows customers to define a custom light color ranging from cooler, bluer light to warmer, softer shades. Indoors, the airport chose to use warmer-toned, 3000K LED bulbs, making sure that the ambiance of the office space remained inviting, and making employees immediately happier thanks to a complete obliteration of buzzing, flickering, or garish casts.
Noribachi LEDs provide reliability, durability, and longevity that satisfy the most demanding industries, including hospitals and airports. “We’re thrilled at how happy Long Beach Airport is with their new lighting. Noribachi LEDs are really taking off – no pun intended – as the premier lighting solution, but I’m still freshly amazed at how great each new installation turns out and the enthusiasm of the customer upon experiencing LED light,” says Celestyna Brozek, VP of Marketing.
