Earlsmann specialise in LED lighting solutions that pay for themselves and don’t cost the earth through wasted energy.

The Devon-based manufacturer is a Carbon Trust accredited supplier and work with local authorities, as well as businesses, to source sustainable lighting systems.

LED has represented an incredible, fast moving and game changing technology within the lighting industry, from which forward-thinking companies are developing a vast array of uses.

A genuine equivalent to traditional light sources, comparable to 50 Watt Halogen and even 35 Watt Metal Halide bulbs, are now dominating the marketplace.

Such systems can mean huge savings, in comparison, and switching to low energy bulbs is an easy way to reduce carbon emissions.

Demand for LED products has soared as a result, with Earlsmann making this a priority going forward as a company who have proved they can project manage lighting solutions.

They operate with a decade plus of experience using LEDs for a number of purposes from offices, leisure centres, street lighting, car parks, production areas and public buildings.

Their range of services include design, supply and installation. They also offer emergency lighting, a legal requirement for all non-domestic premises since 2005.

The future is bright for Strood Leisure Centre, after Earlsmann’s proposed lighting upgrades for the main pool, hydro pool, corridors and sports hall were completed to great success.

They were enlisted by Medway Council and NCS Technology for their expertise and it’s been money well spent so far projects Simon Thornton, director of Earlsmann.

He says the savings speak for themselves, even after the £11,000 required for the works. It represents an energy saving of £2,886 annually, so will have paid for itself within four years.


Installed into the existing reflector were 100W LED bulbs and daylight harvesting sensors to maintain lux level and control the temperature, guarding the LED driver in heat.

The sensors control the light and it’s rarely at maximum level which, in turn, increases the life span of the system.

The main pool had been lit with traditional flood lights with low light levels, most of which were absorbed by dark wood panelling.

Earlsmann used more powerful 130W CREE 304 series LED Lights and a 4000K colour temperature, so no more gloomy nights for the swimmers.

The lights could only be mounted at 3.5m, so CREE lenses were put to the test but fire out the right beam all around the pool area.

The CREE 304 series was again used in the sports hall as a canopy light with daylight harvesting sensors, but with a different lens directly above the playing area.

The Hydro Pool was upgraded to modern 5000K LED lighting which is non-corrosive, replacing old fluorescent bulbs on the fittings.

The corridors were decked out in 600m LED panels, replacing 2 x 26W downlights, while LED tubes were fitted in the changing room.

It showcased Earlsmann’s ability to bring together LED products purpose built and proved to be a total lighting solution all round.
