Sheetz has been rolling out Cree LED interior and exterior lighting at a number of its stores across the country. At its newest Raleigh, NC, location, the switch was made to Cree LEDs featuring Cree TrueWhite® Technology inside the store and Cree NanoOptic® Technology in the canopy outside. On the interior, this solution included the Cree LR6™ lamp and LR24™, CR14™ and CR24™ troffers, replacing 84-watt fluorescents and 60-watt CFLs. These new Cree interior fixtures are now installed over the register and in the café seating area, restrooms and the entryway, and in the employees’ office and utility rooms. Designed to deliver uncompromising performance, style and affordability, the LR6 LED downlights elevate the look of petroleum spaces along with their bottom lines.
Powered by Cree TrueWhite® Technology, only Cree indoor LED fixtures can deliver an exclusive combination of industry-leading efficacy, 90+ CRI and consistent warm or cool color temperatures, giving convenience stores years of beautiful, consistent light and energy savings.
Sheetz also benefits from Cree architectural troffers that illustrate how high-quality lighting doesn’t have to come at a premium, delivering a superior mix of performance and payback with unmatched longevity and color consistency, all backed by a ten-year industry-leading fixture warranty.
The CR14 troffer provides a minimum 90 lumens per watt standard efficacy and is designed to last 50,000 or 75,000 hours, while the CR24 troffer delivers up to 5,000 lumens of 90+ CRI light with 90 to 110 LPWs. For applications that require high-ambient light levels, the LR24 troffer is a revolutionary architectural lay-in ideal for use in commercial new construction or retrofit applications.
On the exterior, Sheetz had been using 400-watt metal halide canopy and area lights, 175- to 250-watt wall packs and 250-watt bollards. For high-performance illumination, Sheetz installed Cree 227 Series™ canopy lights — recessed and low-profile surface-mount luminaires ideal for petroleum station canopy applications and building soffits. Sheetz also replaced metal halides with Cree Edge™ area, security and flood luminaires, which provide lasting durability, optimum illumination and unobtrusive architectural blending, all while using 50 percent less energy in most applications.
