Mountain Designs improves lighting quality and reduces operating costs with an LED store lighting upgrade

Mountain Designs is an outdoor clothing and accessory store based in Australia with over 36 stores nationwide. Aglo Systems has supplied light fittings and lighting designs to approximately 30 of these stores in the two years we have worked with the company. Our work on these stores are a combination of lighting upgrade and new store rollout lighting.

The before and after photos shown here are of the Bondi, NSW site. The overall lux levels in the store were significantly low, due to metal halide downlights and fluoro panels which had gradually dimmed over time.


Our new lighting upgrade design involved replacing the existing lighting with premium LED fittings. The current light positioning and ceiling cutouts were retained. Around this site, 38x Metal Halide downlights were replaced with a combination of Fuji, Hubble and Comet downlights; 30x 2x36W recessed fluoro panels were exchanged with LED panels and 4x 2x36W Fluoro battens were upgraded with LED battens.

The front window display required additional lighting to improve the look of the store frontage. Here, our lighting designers specified the installation of track mounted Frost spotlights All new fittings have a cool white colour temperature of 4000K and high CRI 90 to ensure accurate colour representation and crisp whites.
