DATALUX line lighting systems are ideal for cold stores, and other specialist storage locations where challenging temperatures are the norm. In rooms with temperatures of more than 20 degrees below zero, our lighting systems still function optimally. Certainly combined with the processing and storage of food products, the DATALUX system is the most suitable lighting solution. Due to the modular construction of the DATALUX lighting system, maintenance costs are reduced to a minimum. The use of an external power supply ensures that replacement of luminaires is no longer necessary.
Logistics service provider Kloosterboer has built a new state-of-the-art fully automatic high-rise cold store in Lelystad. The cold store has a capacity of 40,000 pallets. The new location uses 50 per cent less energy than a conventional cold store.
The complete warehouse solution consists of an automated warehouse with very high storage areas and a lower storage zone, the so-called high-performance sequencing buffer, which contains more than 700 pallets. Therefore, hardly any lighting is needed in the automated warehouse: after all, these areas are not staffed. However, for maintenance and of course in the general area, the most suitable lighting system has been chosen: DATALUX. The project was realized together with Beemster.

Cooling & Freezing Company Van Soest BV started in 1989 with the freezing of mushrooms. Their mushrooms are exported worldwide to leading brands in the food industry, catering and retail in around sixty countries. After a major fire in earlier in 2018, the business premises had to be built up quickly and adequately. This was also an opportunity to set up a new high-quality production. This of course included the best light level available in the market. Van Soest also opted for the reconstruction in accordance with the latest BREEAM guidelines.
The electrical installation company De Kock from Geldermalsen was soon engaged to realize the electronic installations against the latest requirements. Van Soest needed lighting suitable for the demanding food production environment. The choice for DATALUX light lines was therefore made quickly. Within a few weeks, De Kock and the LUMINAID assembly teams succeeded in making this project a success.

“De Producent” is a cooperative that was originally established for the export of full-fat Gouda Cheese under the Rijksmerk. The association was created to enable cheese-producing farmers to compete against large traders. Because of this the farmers know a purchase guarantee and a fixed compensation for the cheeses. More than a hundred years later, De Producent still guarantees the purchase and responsible purchasing of the cheese produced by its farmers. Due to the growth of the sales market at home and abroad, De Producent has grown into a modern and flexible company and has become one of the larger “Boerenkaas” and “Kaas van de Boerderij” suppliers in Europe. To facilitate this growth, a new warehouse in Moordrecht, The Netherlands, has been put into use, ready to store more than 2.6 million kilograms of cheese. With this storage, a high-quality light level with which the quality of the product can be assessed properly can be crucial. Lighting specialist ETK Lighting has been commissioned for the realization of the best suitable lighting.
In addition to a good light level, it was important that the lighting to be used met the stringent requirements that apply to the storage of fresh foodstuffs such as cheese. Then the choice quickly falls on the DATALUX lighting system. The entire warehouse is therefore equipped with a DATALUX.LT lighting system.

The core activities of Boon Sliedrecht B.V. consist of distribution of food to (franchise) customers and the operation of MCD Supermarkets and Boon’s Markets. These are full-service supermarkets with service and freshly high priority. Boon Sliedrecht B.V. is a family business that has existed for nearly 130 years. A few years ago, Boon opened a logistics center in Ridderkerk from which all cool and frozen products are delivered. These warehouse facilities where previously fragmented over two locations, Zwijndrecht and Barendrecht. In order to continue the growth, it was necessary search for a new building. A prerequisite for this was to be able to bundle all the wholesale activities in one logistics center in order to achieve synergy benefits for the company. The choice fell on DC Delta on the Dordtse Kil III.
Our partner ETK Lighting has designed an optimal lighting plan that achieves the highest light level between the various racks in the cooling and freezing locations. The DATALUX.LT light line system was chosen for this. LUMINAID was responsible for the production, delivery and assembly of the DATALUX light line system
