Noribachi Teams Up With Bucknell For LED Retrofit

LOS ANGELES, CA –­ Noribachi, a leading U.S.- based custom LED manufacturer for high output commercial and industrial lighting solutions, teamed up with Bucknell University to upgrade its Gerhard Fieldhouse sports facility lighting with a customized LED light retrofit solution.

“When we were looking to upgrade the facility’s indirect lighting, energy efficiency, ease of retrofitting and the cost avoidance by using existing fixtures were key to our decision making process,” said Steve Durfee, Campus Energy Manager, Bucknell University.

For the project, Noribachi engineered 112 custom LED light retrofits to replace metal halide bulbs in the facility’s existing indirect light fixtures. The installation of the LED retrofit solution enhanced energy efficiency by reducing the 1.15 kW per fixture system wattage created by the bulbs as well as reduced material waste associated with re-lamping and cut maintenance costs.

“As an added benefit, the coaches and athletic staff who use the Gerhard Fieldhouse have embraced the retrofit project. They feel the light quality and distribution has improved, and are pleased with the environmental benefits,” continued Durfee.

“We have worked on many sports facility lighting retrofit projects and understand the specific requirements to ensure proper illumination and safety. With our Bespoke Engineered and Specifically Tailored manufacturing process, we were able to deliver just that,” said Esther M. Santos, COO, Noribachi.
