Quicklight urges UK firms to check their lights before it’s too dark
Thatcham, UK, 4th October 2012 - As the daylight hours get shorter and shorter, lighting maintenance service provider Quicklight has urged businesses in the UK to check their lighting is adequate before it gets too dark.
It’s always surprising how many businesses put off having their lights replaced or leave it until the last minute. Sometimes businesses find it so dark it becomes a health-and-safety issue or that productivity is affected.
“Every year it’s the same,” explains Andy Cole, director at Quicklight. “The clocks go back and facilities managers find their premises in early-evening darkness. It’s at this point they realise lamps need replacing and that’s when our phone starts ringing.”
Last year Quicklight saw enquiries increase by 40% at the end of October. To avoid the annual rush, Quicklight recommends that lighting levels are checked on a regular basis throughout the year.
“It’s always surprising how many businesses put off having their lights replaced or leave it until the last minute, ” said Mr. Cole. “Sometimes businesses find it so dark it becomes a health-and-safety issue or that productivity is affected.”
Quicklight’s proactive lighting maintenance solution is designed for busy facilities managers with many services to look after. The company sends qualified engineers to its customers’ sites, anywhere in the UK, every eight weeks, to change any lamps and fittings that have failed. Quicklight doesn’t force its customers to sign up to contracts and only charges for the parts its engineers install.
This year, British Summer Time ends on the 28th October.
