Carpetright is one of the largest British retailers of floor coverings, established in 1988. The company now has 572 stores, and its turnover is approximately £450m. When they embarked on a major store refit programme, they required a UK-based lighting partner to provide innovative, flexible and sustainable design and reliable logistics.
In close cooperation with Carpetright we designed a lighting scheme and specified luminaires suitable for an environment which included several different areas within the store. A uniform light level is required throughout and with varying ceiling heights ranging from 6 metres to 2.8 metres we had to carefully select the product type and lumen output of each product.
The result is a flexible lighting concept that not only enhances the colour of the products, but also fits a variety of areas within the store.
ITAB Prolight UK provided a full service package which included lighting design, project management, dedicated delivery, luminaire commissioning and full after- sales service for each store.
We supplied high-output High Bays accompanied by track and spot, LED panels, recessed gimbals and downlights in the low ceiling height areas. The nature of the store, selling different coloured materials, meant we had to supply high CRI luminaires to really show the colour of the products in the best way.
To create the perfect lighting environment at Carpetright we used both high-quality fixtures from Nordic Light and lighting products designed by ITAB Prolight UK – all delivered from our facility in Bishop Stortford directly to the store.
Our ‘all inclusive’ offer, which includes British manufacturing and design capabilities, combined with competitive high- quality display products from Nordic Light, enabled us to meet Carpetright’s demanding brief and tight schedule for the roll-out. The result is a high -quality shopping experience and a pleasant light environment, with major energy saving benefits providing low maintenance and operating costs thanks to the ‘high- end’ LED engines supplied.
