Providing safe, energy efficient LED lighting for custodial and detention applications.

Since 2010 Waveguide has built a portfolio of LED lighting installations at numerous local authorities and public sector organisations such as Greater Manchester Police and the NHS.

We typically achieve up to 80% savings on lighting costs in all our detention and custodial LED lighting installations, slashing Co2 emissions at the same time. Given that lighting accounts for around 80% of the energy costs in any building these savings can make a significant impact on day-to-day operations expenses.

We have internal and external LED light fittings to replace fluorescents, halogens and metal halides at ceiling heights from 2.5 to 20 metres.

We also understand that differing lux levels may be required within custodial and detention environments, for example, 500 lux for a cell deep clean, 300 lux for everyday use and 15 lux for night time. Working with our partner Cell Security Ltd, we can supply the entire LED lighting scheme with a variety of intelligent controls such as time clocks, PIR sensors and dimmers which integrate seamlessly into your current building management system.

Our custodial LED lighting technology provides high quality uniformly distributed light, eradicating any pockets of darkness caused by traditional lighting solutions and making CCTV footage clearer.

What’s more, our LED light engines will run for a minimum of 60,000 hours of continuous use, minimising the disruption and costs caused by ongoing maintenance.
