IST Celebrates Being Shortlisted for Environmental Business Award

Integrated System Technologies Ltd left stiff competition standing after being shortlisted for the coveted MEBC 2014 Annual Business awards, which celebrate sustainable development and the Low Carbon economy.

The successful lighting technology company, which designs and manufactures LED drivers and wireless control systems through to LED lighting fixtures, has been shortlisted in the retrofit category. The MEBC awards honour companies who have excelled in the Low Carbon sector and have made a recognizable contribution to the retrofit industry through the introduction of new products which improve building performance and the affordability of installations.

IST’s award submission included two of its latest retrofit innovations: the Serenity® DynaWhite® biodynamic tuneable white LED panel lights and the iMune™ wireless control system, which are both already installed at a number of sites across the UK, with a growing number of prestigious international projects in the pipeline.

The highly efficient Serenity® Quadrum panels make excellent retrofit replacements for fluorescent tubes in offices, hospitals, retail and education establishments. Recently installed in the 24/7 UK call centre for a high street bank and in 4 dementia wards across 3 NHS sites, the DynaWhite® Quadrum panels, coupled with IST’s patented LED driver technology, offer staff and patients ‘healthy lighting’ without pulsing, thereby eliminating the flicker sometimes associated with alternative LED lighting technology on the market.

Other benefits of biodynamic white LED lighting include:
• Regulating sleep patterns by mimicking the patterns of natural daylight, thereby replicating the many physical, physiological and psychological benefits associated with natural daylight exposure.
• Increasing alertness and productivity.
• Enhanced mood and improved sense of general wellbeing.
• Assisting mental and physical recovery.
• Aiding relaxation or stimulation at the right time of day.
• Reducing anxiety and confusion.
• Low maintenance, low energy, cost-effective solution.

Installed alongside the DynaWhite® Quadrum for the bank call centre project was IST’s new and highly secure iMune® wireless control system, which can reduce the energy consumption by up to an additional 70% when deployed with various smart sensors. In addition to its energy saving attributes, iMune® offers unprecedented levels of lighting control, from different light intensities and colour temperatures to suit individuals in their own work stations right up to lighting management for whole buildings.

The MEBC Awards Ceremony, which is now in its 15th year, will take place on the 3rd December.
