Taking Special Care Of Your LED Lights

by Cooper Clark on Dec 07, 2020

LED lights have many benefits for companies. They reduce your utility bill, provide consistent and clean white light for your property, and they look pretty. One of the biggest benefits is how long the LEDs last without flickering. They generally can run for 50,000 hours, and that can help you cross one more expense off this year's quarterly report. However, as with all things, failing to maintain your lights can lead to you losing hours and ultimately paying for replacements long before you are budgeted to. Here are a few tips for avoiding that.

by Cooper Clark on Jan 03, 2019

 

Every business, no matter how big or small, comes with a surprisingly long list of maintenance responsibilities. Just keeping the facility properly swept, mopped, and wiped down with a sanitizing cleaner takes enough effort as-is. Almost no team manages to keep up with every corner of the building, especially in areas where it's not fun to be. From cleaning the break room microwave to wiping down handrails, there are a number of facility upkeep tasks that need to be maintained, and maintaining the building lighting is one of these little tasks that all too often falls through the cracks.

3 Reasons Your Emergency Lights Should Be LED's

by Cooper Clark on Dec 13, 2018

According to safety regulations, your commercial building is required to have emergency exit lights indicating both emergency exit doors and the path to emergency exits if the route is not apparent. But installing your exit lights correctly is about more than just placement. Emergency exit lights need to function properly and safely even in situations where all other lights in the building fail. 

This is why most emergency exit lights are connected to a backup battery source that will last at least a few hours after power fails or is cut off in the building. Beyond power source, you should also think carefully about the materials used to build your emergency exit lights and the bulbs that illuminate the signs so that people in dangerous situations can clearly navigate their way to safety.

Winter is Coming: Are Your Exterior Areas Safely Lit?

by Cooper Clark on Nov 13, 2018

 

Facility safety is a crucial part of any maintenance plan. No doubt your regular facility maintenance team is capably keeping the walkways clear, the handrails secured, and the HVAC system running smoothly. But in the yearly hustle and routine, it can be all too easy to lose sight of seasonal safety concerns. As the weather begins to turn cold, outdoor safety becomes a particularly serious matter for any commercial facility. Particularly those that serve a large number of customers or clients each day. 

Winter Slip and Fall Risks    

Winter time and the pavement ice it brings are the number one cause of both employee and customer slip-and-fall accidents. Whether someone is stepping out of their car, walking across the parking lot, or taking the few short steps up to your front door, a single misstep could lead to a serious injury. Businesses should be doing everything they can to reduce the chances that someone could get hurt on their sidewalks, grounds, and parking lot pavements.

Don’t Let Dead Lights Ruin Your Business

by Cooper Clark on Mar 29, 2018

Imagine a salesman with spinach in his teeth, or a police officer with mustard on his shirt. It does not matter what profession, appearances matter and it is no different with your storefront. Businesses with dead lights convey the same message, unprofessionalism and neglect. And, while they say you can't judge a book by its cover, people still do.
