Tim's Texas Barbecue, a popular restaurant and entertainment venue in Beijing's central business district, is benefiting from the recent installation of U-Tron's LED Helios and LED Comet lights, and so is the environment.

Helios bulbs were used to replace the original incandescent lights over the restaurants bar and MR16 LED Comet track lights to illuminate stock behind the bar. One benefit of the new lights became immediately apparent to both the staff at Tim's and their customers. The Helios and Comet lights provide a steady and bright illumination where required, however the light does not spill over to other areas and thus the cozy and intimate ambiance of the restaurant is maintained in the late evening. The low energy consumption of LED lighting is helping to reduce the restaurants power bills and its carbon footprint.

Tim Hilbert, the owner of Tim's Texas Barbecue is enthusiastic about the benefits that LED lighting can bring. "For an operation such as mine that does much of its business at night the energy costs associated with lighting are a significant charge on our business. To be able to reduce these costs and benefit the environment, while maintaining the standard of our service to our customers is a win-win-win situation."

Energy savings are not the only benefit that Tim foresees LED lighting bringing to his business. "Every time we have to change a light bulb there is a labor cost and disruption to our business and inconvenience to our customers. Some lights are in very difficult places to reach, for example over the stairwell. The extremely long life cycle of these LED light bulbs is a significant benefit to us. And, of course, the fact that they contain no mercury and are 100% recyclable is a definite plus."
