The conventional PL lamp: what to do when the production stops

pl lamp

The production of the conventional PL lamp will end by the 24th of February 2023. Do not worry, there is no need to purchase new fixtures immediately. Saled has an affordable LED lighting alternative.

What does this production stop mean for you or your company?

It simply means that the conventional PL lamp will no longer be available in the market in Europe after the expiration date of the 24th of February. Saled provides an affordable LED alternative that gives you the opportunity to continue using your existing fixtures. We do this by replacing the existing lighting one-for-one by installing the new LED solution. We call this our retrofit method. We have sustainable LED alternatives for the PL lamp. This lamp can be installed quickly and easily by simply switching off the (electronical) ballast. An additional advantage is that it no longer requires maintenance during the remaining lifespan.

More than half of the municipalities in The Netherlands already benefit from our efficient solution. That means over more than 180 municipalities. Our knowledge, service, and experience have made us a retrofit specialist for over 10 years. 

The benefits of retrofitting

When you switch from conventional lighting to LED lighting your municipality or your company will benefit from maintenance costs and reduced energy costs. This is because our PL lamps do not longer require maintenance during the remaining lifespan. This will provide significant labor savings and savings relating to the purchase of new lamps.

Our LED lighting provides energy savings of more than 50%. LED lighting is a very sustainable choice; more than 50% of CO2 will reduce because of the switch from conventional lighting to LED lighting. Retrofitting is an affordable way to make sustainable steps as a municipality. The results of our lighting are not only apparent in the future, the improvement is visible immediately.

What legislation sits behind this?

Through so-called regulations, the European Union enforces the same requirements for every country within the European Union. The following regulations have been tightened up in the context of sustainability. The Single Lighting Regulation (SLR) is intended to improve the energy efficiency of lighting and thus create a more sustainable climate. The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is an EU directive to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
