New LED lighting at Pitt Rivers Museum

April 7, 2016

 

SEFM were delighted to learn that visitors to Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford will now be enjoying the collection under new LED lamps.

 

The 500 Soraa VIVID MR16 LED lamps are estimated to save the museum £45,000 over the next five years and will reduce its carbon emissions by 44 tonnes each year.

 

The new LED lighting also makes the museum more energy efficient and the displays easier to see, they also emit no harmful ultra-violet light, protecting the artifacts from UV light damage.

 

Robert Gregg, of Oxford University, said: "The Soraa LED lamp produces colour rendition that is comparable to a halogen light source. The new lighting system also allows more flexibility with beam angles for changing displays.
