GE Lighting's portfolio of CMH Ultra lamps have been specified by John Lewis for their new build and refurbishment program throughout the UK. Embodied into Edge Lighting's range of high efficiency luminaires, GE's CMH Ultra lamps optimize light output and provides superior color rendering and uniformity for their retail lighting.
A household name in the UK, John Lewis department stores operate throughout the UK and are owned by the John Lewis Partnership. The retailer's flagship store on Oxford Street is the largest branch in the partnership and was one of the first stores to benefit from a retrofit with GE Lighting lamps.
As the European Union continues its phase-out of inefficient light bulbs, it's crucial that retail lighting applications start making the switch to modern alternatives, as traditional lamps may no longer be available when it comes to eventual replacement. In addition - the sooner the switch is made, the sooner retailers can reap the benefits of energy efficient lighting.
GE Lighting's CMH Ultra lamps range has been designed specifically for retail environments, providing high efficiency, long life and superb overall lighting quality – ideal for enhancing retail displays and optimizing merchandise illumination. The ConstantColor CMH Ultra lamps last 25% longer than comparable products on the market, significantly extending maintenance cycles to achieve long term cost savings.
