SPAR Opens First LED-only Lighting Supermarkets in Vienna and Murau

Even from outside, the SPAR supermarket in Vienna presents an ecological appearance: the accessible roof is in stunning contrast to traditional supermarket buildings. With its new shop concept, SPAR Austria has set an example: almost at the same time, SPAR’s first climate-protection supermarkets were opened in Murau and on Vienna’s Engerthstrasse, featuring a lighting solution by Zumtobel that is completely based on LEDs. For these supermarkets, Zumtobel had developed a uniform lighting concept based on LED luminaires only: general lighting in the two supermarkets is ensured by the Tecton LED continuous-row lighting system, which was presented for the first time at Light+Building 2010. The LED version of this tried-and-tested product by Zumtobel offers high lighting quality combined with efficient light sources that are nearly maintenance-free. Even the shelves, the side rooms and the outdoor areas are illuminated by LED products only. In combination with other innovative structural measures, the branches will save 50% of energy and up to 80 t of CO2. Read more »
