Church Lighting Specialists
We’re NICEIC Approved electrical contractors, and are probably Scotland’s leading experts on lighting in churches.
Within the team, we have over 75 years’ experience & can help with all aspects of lighting. This includes lighting design & installation, church LED upgrades, exterior lighting, emergency lighting, car park & security lighting & general repairs.
We understand that all lighting work needs to comply with CARTA & Archdiocese regulations, and are used to working with committees.
If you’d like to discuss any aspect of lighting in your church, regardless of size, please get in touch.
The majority of our church lighting work is across Glasgow, Ayrshire, Edinburgh & Stirling, but we also work in churches across the Highlands & Islands & in England.
Ecclesiastical Lighting Services Include:
Church Lighting Design & Installation
We’re Scotland’s leading church electrical contractors and are experts in the design & installation of lighting systems for all places of worship.
We understand that the illumination of churches is extremely important. Good lighting is essential to create the right atmosphere for worship. However, it’s also important for providing illumination of focal points & architecture. The lighting also needs to be flexible enough to accommodate other activities, such as community events, concerts & private bookings.
With constrained budgets, we also understand that lighting also needs to be controllable, energy-efficient & cost-efficient.
When it comes to designing & installing lighting in churches, we’re used to working as sole contractors. However, if it’s part of a larger project, we’re used to working as part of a team with architects, interior designers & main contractors.
If you’re exploring the idea of a new lighting system for your church, please get in touch.
Church LED Lighting Upgrades
Shops across Glasgow & the rest of Scotland are upgrading to LED lighting systems for a number of reasons:
- improved atmosphere for worship
- smart technology, to allow lighting to be controlled automatically & remotely by smartphone, tablet & laptops etc
- less expensive than the cost of installing a new lighting system
- energy consumption & bill can be reduced by up to 70%
- longer life spans of bulbs
- reduced maintenance
- more environmentally friendly
We work on church LED lighting upgrades across Glasgow, Ayrshire, Stirling & Edinburgh (and all over Scotland).
To begin with, we would discuss the type of lighting that you’d like to achieve. We’d then assess your energy consumption, design a new lighting system & forecast the potential reduction in bills, energy consumption & carbon footprint. Our aim is to deliver the best lighting solution for your budget, and ultimately leave your church with a stunning lighting system & lower bills.
Church Lighting Repairs & Maintenance
If lights have failed, start flickering or are not as bright as they should be, please give us a call. We understand the impact that poor lighting can have on a congregation if they’re struggling to follow a service or read from service cards or hymn books. We’ll do our best to provide a speedy response.
We work in Glasgow, Edinburgh & across Scotland to help churches keep their lights working effectively. Usually, we’re replacing lamps & moving switches etc. However, we’re also able to conduct fault-finding, to see what may be causing a problem…and then fix it.
Whether a bulb needs changing, you need to investigate a lighting fault or anything else lighting-related, please get in touch.
Church Emergency Lighting
All churches need to have emergency lighting in place. We can help churches in Glasgow & across Scotland with the design & installation of emergency lighting systems.
Assuming your church already has a system in place, we can ensure it meets your legal requirements, by carrying out emergency lighting testing & maintenance. Just give us a call to see how we could help.
Church Car Park & Security Lighting
We are experts in car park lighting & security lighting for churches. The right lighting is important to ensure your congregation has enough light to park safely & also to walk from the car park to the church. Similarly, there needs to be adequate lighting for people to navigate paths & walkways safely.
Effective security lighting is also a great way of reducing the likelihood of criminal activity taking place in your car park or church.
If you have any issues with your existing car park or security lighting, please get in touch, as we’re great at fault-finding & general maintenance. We’ll also happily check that the lighting in your car park meets British Standards BS EN 12464 and BS 5489:2013.
Finally, we can also carry out a free assessment to measure the potential benefits of upgrading your car park lighting. Moving to LEDs can massively reduce energy consumption & bills. By building in the use of sensors & smart technology you can reduce energy consumption even further (and there are lots of incentives available to help organisations reduce their carbon footprint by making the switch).
Whether you’re looking for a simple repair or enhancing your lighting, please give us a call.
