BOEING’S PORT SAN ANTONIO HANGER FACILITY
RAYON LIGHTING ILLUMINATES BOEING’S PORT SAN ANTONIO HANGER FACILITY WITH ENERGY EFFICIENT INDUCTION HIGH BAY
Rayon Lighting Group, Inc. /Los Angeles, CA-November 20, 2014: Boeing, the world's leading aerospace firm, maintains important operations at Port San Antonio providing maintenance, repair and overhaul services for military aircraft. The company's Port San Antonio site also performs upgrades to Boeing's new commercial aircraft before delivery to customers worldwide. First established at Kelly Field in 1998, the company's facilities at Port San Antonio support a workforce of almost 2,800 employees. The firm occupies numerous facilities, including the world's largest freestanding hangar, measuring approximately one million square feet.
When it was time for Boeing to update the lighting for their San Antonio hanger facility, they turned to Rayon Lighting for an energy efficient solution. After careful diligence, Rayon Lighting was able to determine the lighting needs required to replace Boeing’s existing inefficient metal halide fixtures. Today, Boeing has 348 units of Rayon Lighting’s 22” Induction High Bay (T1080IND-300), with 300 watts of an induction lamp and driver. Boeing decided to go with a polished aluminum reflector for an even light distribution and fresh appearance. The 5000 Kelvin color temperature will provide a day light appearance, even after sundown, so work performance may be sustained any time throughout the day. Installed within each high bay fixture was a cord and plug for quick and convenient installation.
This energy efficient lighting solution will provide great benefit to Boeing Port San Antonio by providing 50% in energy savings. Rayon Lighting’s induction light system provides 100,000 hours of life and will provide significant maintenance and utility costs savings.
