Entu will attend your business at a convenient time, to conduct a no cost technical audit of your current lighting provision, detailing the quantity, consumption and controls across all aspects of your business.
Design & Specification
Our aim is not just to recommend a like for like exchange, but instead to understand your business, and where improved lighting would benefit.
We will also look to utilise intelligent lighting controls that will mean empty areas are not unnecessarily lit, or to utilise any natural light through implementing daylight sensors, which will reduce your electrical consumption even further.

Entu have relationships with all the UKs leading manufactures and distributors of LED Lighting and Control systems. Dealing direct means we cut out additional layers of profit margin that an extended supply chain can mean.
Because we buy in bulk, you can be sure that our prices are on the money. Beyond this however, quality is the absolute key. We know from experience that the lamps and luminaires we supply are ultra-reliable, and will last the course. Supplier evaluation is the key part of procurement process, and we monitor and investigate any failures rigorously.
Everything we do is based on reducing your electrical consumption, and so cutting costs and saving money. However, we understand that cash flow may not instantly be available to fund a cost saving programme; so as well as accessing Carbon Trust grants, we also work with lenders who are able to structure finance packages whereby the savings you achieve are used to pay for the products that deliver them.
Typically lasting no more than 3 years, we can deliver schemes that are instantly cash positive in the short term, and deliver significant contributions direct to the bottom line thereafter.

We know that with its long lifespan, LED is a once in solution, and we are absolutely confident that there won’t be any problems. However we commit to being there for you at any time, post installation. Reputations are built on these statements, and we won’t allow ours to be compromised.

What are the benefits of LED lighting versus traditional fluorescent lighting?
Lifespan — The average life of an LED lamp is 50,000 hours, versus only 12,000 hours for an average fluorescent.
Mercury-free — Unlike fluorescents, LEDs contain no mercury. This makes them far safer for the environment.
Directional lighting — Unlike LEDs, traditional fluorescents have multi-directional light, which means some light is lost in the fixture.
Integration of controls — Whilst LEDs integrate with controls easily, fluorescent lamps often fail when integrated with occupancy sensors and other controls.
Better efficiency — LEDs are up to 68% more efficient than fluorescent lamps.
Quality light — Dispersed, instant and directional light with no flickering.
