Raleigh Orthopaedic selects Cree LED architectural troffers to improve lighting

Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic in Raleigh, NC, USA, one of the city’s largest orthopaedic practices, has chose LED lighting from LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA for its new headquarters and surgery center.

The North Carolina facility installed more than 1000 Cree CR Series LED architectural troffers throughout the 98,000-square-foot clinic. According to Raleigh Orthopaedic, the LED troffers will decrease the clinic’s lighting energy usage by 54% compared to fluorescent technologies.

“The biggest difference my colleagues and I have noticed is the dimming capability of the Cree LED troffers, which we use on a daily basis in diagnostic exam rooms,” says Raleigh Orthopaedic’s president Dr G. Hadley Callaway. “My patients and I are better able to view x-rays as we discuss a course of treatment.”

The Cree CR22 and CR24 LED troffers deliver an 90 CRI (color rendering index) with consistent color temperatures. Designed to last for more than 50,000 hours (twice the lifetime of comparable fluorescents), Cree LED troffers reduce lighting maintenance and operational costs for the practice. Coupled with Cree’s 10-year warranty, the installation is expected to pay for itself in less than three years (based on commercial usage of 14 hours per day and the national average of $0.11 per kWh electric costs, lighting-related HVAC impact and relamp maintenance reductions).

“With Cree CR Series LED troffers, clinics like Raleigh Orthopaedic now have a no-compromise LED lighting solution, providing superior color quality and significant energy and maintenance savings compared to traditional technologies,” says Mike Bauer, VP of lighting sales, Cree.
