We have completed commercial lighting projects in 1.5 million plus square foot warehouses and distribution centers, stores, libraries, hospitals, schools, and the list goes on. Regardless of your lighting needs, Systel has the expertise and experience to complete all your lighting projects.

Scheduled & Preventative Lighting Maintenance Service

Systel knows that lighting is a crucial element in making a retail space inviting and pleasant for shoppers. Scheduled or preventative lighting maintenance is a cost effective way to keep a facility’s lighting at optimal levels. Optimal light levels increase worker productivity and increase sales.

Utilizing a preventative maintenance service program also helps to minimize lighting repair costs throughout the year by limiting on-call and emergency service requests. Our maintenance packages further help your company save money by allowing our customers to take advantage of the manufacturer warranties on the lighting products in use at their locations. Systel honors all manufacturer warranties, thus eliminating the material costs for replacement of products that fail within the warranty period.

Systel maintenance schedules can be tailored to fit any budget, time-frame, and any retail footprint to maintain indoor and outdoor lighting. We also provide reactive maintenance. On a daily basis, we field service calls requiring maintenance within a matter of days and/or hours.

Group Re-lamping Services

Systel understands that lamps weaken and their light levels diminish as the lamps reach their end of life. Diminished light levels are less than ideal for a retail space and can be dangerous for other commercial applications. Systel offers Group Re-lamping Services as an effective way to maintain ideal light levels and decrease expenditures on lamp replacements.

Light fixtures also collect dust, which further diminishes light levels. When a space is re-lamped, each fixture is also cleared of dust and debris to best restore a “like new” appearance.

Fixture Replacement, Addition and Relocation

Systel recognizes that lighting in parking lots or on the exteriors of retail or commercial buildings are susceptible to damage, necessitating fixture replacement, addition, or relocation. Bad weather conditions, careless drivers, and vandalism are just a few of the ways exterior lighting can be damaged.

On the same note, interior light fixtures can also be the victims of carelessness. For example, it is common to see light fixtures in receiving areas struck by pallets of product. Fixtures simply wear out over time and require replacement.

Remodels or remerchandising may cause a need for additional lighting to be installed or existing lighting to be relocated. Systel has extensive experience in fixture replacement, installation of new fixtures, and existing fixture relocation, including parking lot light poles and pole base pedestals.

Parking Lot Lighting Maintenance

Commercial parking lot lighting maintenance is an easy way to strengthen your business. Systel knows that maintaining proper light levels in commercial parking lots and around the perimeter of a building is vital to ensure the safety and security of your customers and employees. It is also important to regularly inspect parking lot poles because weather and normal wear and tear can compromise their structural integrity.

Parking lot lighting is especially important for the winter months. Winter brings about a shorter amount of daylight, meaning that more people will be using your parking lot during dark times. The holidays are also a time where people are out later, and if you have a retail location with a parking lot, you will want optimum lighting. Lighting options from Systel not only guide people to your storefront, but ease the navigation and increase safety by having proper lighting for your parking lot.

Parking lots are the first touch-point for your building, and you always want to make a good first impression. Systel will make sure that the light fixtures in your parking lot are top of the line, and that they will be working to their peak capacity.

Exterior Building Lighting and Maintenance

Exterior building lighting maintenance is an easy way to strengthen your business. Systel knows that maintaining proper light levels around the perimeter of a building is vital to ensure the safety and security of your customers and employees. It is also important to regularly inspect exterior lighting because weather and normal wear and tear can compromise their structural integrity.

Exterior Lighting is also a way to get your business noticed. Making sure your building lighting is bright and working properly can help improve the visibility of your store, and give it a more professional look. The winter will bring longer nights and worse weather, meaning lots of wear and tear on your commercial building lighting. Make sure you have a company that can properly set up and maintain your lights through the long and busy winter season.

LED Lighting, Lighting Upgrades and Retro-Fits

Systel understands that buying and replacing lamps comprise about 3% of the total cost to operate and maintain a commercial lighting system. Energy costs comprise about 85% of the total cost to operate. For this reason, Commercial LED Lighting, lighting upgrades, and retrofits are typically the cheapest and easiest ways to significantly reduce energy costs.

Energy savings can be achieved by phasing out old T12’s to T8’s. You can also reduce the number of lamps in your store by 50% by replacing a 4-lamp fixture with a 2-lamp fixture that uses a reflector or a parabolic diffuser to maintain existing light levels. This instantly reduces your energy and material costs by 50%.

Systel has retrofitted thousands of HID fixtures to more efficient fluorescent fixtures. We have the ability to recommend an upgrade or retro-fit project that is best suited for your building or execute any project that you already have planned.
