Gyms roll-out features 3D-printed luminaires

Gyms everlast 3d printed lights

A LIGHTING roll-out across a UK chain of 69 gyms includes 3D printed luminaires made of 100% recyclable polycarbonate.

The lights at the Everlast gym chain have been designed and developed by Signify to suit the exact needs of each individual location. The fixtures are lightweight and therefore cheaper to transport.

They’re also fully serviceable and upgradable, and can have their life after they have been put into service.

In addition, designing the gyms with LED lighting dramatically cuts the energy consumption by about 80 per cent, when compared to the traditional technologies that were deployed earlier.

Added controls will help manage and reduce energy consumption by creating and managing uniform light schedules for all 69 gyms from a single dashboard, reducing operational costs, ensuring compliance, and efficiently planning maintenance.

Everlast gyms at Denton, Shirebrook and Preston have already been upgraded and offer members a variety of different environments – or ‘innovative zones’ – to train in, creating unique gym experiences.

As part of the redesign, the Interact connected lighting system, which includes multisite management capability, provides centralised lighting control for all the gyms.

Agreed scenes and schedules ensure a consistent look and feel, as well as providing increased visibility, flexibility, and control of the lights.

The cloud-based platform collects data from all light points via a connected lighting infrastructure and is displayed on a centralised dashboard. This enables better comparison, monitoring and management of lighting across multiple locations for improved efficiency.

‘The first of our elevated sites in Denton, Preston and Shirebrook reflect our ambitions for Everlast Gyms and perfectly demonstrate the gym experience we aim to bring to all of our members throughout the UK,’ Daniel Summerson, managing director of Everlast Gyms told the Circular Lighting Report.
‘We needed to make sure that the lighting added to the look and feel of the club, while also keeping the facility environmentally friendly.

‘It has been great to switch on these solutions and I am looking forward to working with Signify on the roll-out across the UK, with Nottingham to be the next gym to have the upgraded experience for members.’

Daniel Maskell, national sales manager, Signify UK&I, added: ‘The upgrade to LED lighting reduces energy consumption, while the implementation of 3D printed technology further reduces Everlast gyms’ carbon footprint. The gyms really make a statement to the fitness industry, and we are looking forward to working with Everlast on the rest of their gyms across the UK.’

• Signify’s 3D printing capability will be discussed at the Circular Lighting Live 2022 conference and exhibition in London on Thursday 22 September.
