I replaced old fluorescent lights in a single mushroom house with 35 BEKEN lights. The lights are waterproof which made cleaning the tunnel easier as the IP67 water rating of the light allows us to safely use a power washer. Two metres of cable is included with each light so they’re very quick and easy to install with all 35 lights connected together. I estimate that I’ll save around €900 per year on energy costs with these BEKEN LED lights.
I had read that the correct light spectrum was important for promoting healthy birds. I was building another poultry house for broiler chickens when i heard about BEKEN tube lights. The poultry lights produce a full colour spectrum which is the best type of light for broilers and pullets. The cost of fitting the lights was comparable to normal fluorescent tube lights but are 60% more efficient so it was a no-brainer.
Operating a large number of mushroom houses I know how expensive it is to provide adequate lighting in all of our tunnels. We had issues too of lights blowing prematurely due to the high moisture content inside the tunnels that our old tube lights weren’t designed to handle. When we replaced our existing lights with BEKEN LED lights we saw an immediate reduction in energy costs. We expect to recoup our investment within two years in reduced energy bills. The savings after that will amount to 10’s of thousands per year for us and will help us increase of profit margin.
We recently fitted out two older chicken houses with BEKEN LED poultry lights. They’re much brighter than our old fluorescent tube lights and use 60% less energy. The LED lights are fully dimmable and have a beam angle of 360 degrees so I’ve suspended a dozen of these vertically for additional light. This helps with the removal of dead stock on a regular basis.
We recently retrofitted six mushroom tunnels with BEKEN LED lights. The lights were fitted in all six houses in a single day using the clips provided. The process of fitting our existing mushroom houses with LED lights was very simple and has helped us to reduce our energy bills straight away.
