Leroy Merlin is a French home-improvement and gardening retailer serving thirteen countries. It was founded in 1923.
Established on the outskirts of major towns and cities, Leroy Merlin stores are large centers (9000 m2 on average) providing self-service and sales assisted services. Its business is centered on six main sectors: DYI, building, gardening, sanitary equipment, energy and interior decoration.
Greentek Lighting is one of the main lighting suppliers for Leroy Merlin chain, starting with Romania and expanding into other countries as well. For each of LM’s sector as well as for their offices, Greentek provided the lighting concept, technical consultancy, and the corresponding luminaires.
For the indoor spaces – we mostly used Lanka – our flexible trunking system of luminaires, able to be placed in a continuous row. For retail spaces, trunking systems are a staple – since they provide the perfect, flexible system for low or high shelving rows. Also, various optics available at different angles – 30 /60 / 90 degrees or double-asymmetric lenses allow for very little light to be wasted on the floor. Thus, the beam is directed towards the merchandising displayed on the shelving. In this area, the Lanka system provided on average 750 lx – a high level of horizontal illuminance in order to help shoppers find what they were looking for.
For office spaces – we used Juniper – recessed luminaires providing a high uniformity of light.
For the gardening area, set outdoors – we installed Myriaky flood luminaires on the façade of the building. For the canopied area above, we provided Casey – a sturdy IP65 luminaire, with protection against humidity, dust, and extreme temperatures. Considering that most shoppers come here during daylight hours, the average illuminance is lower – around 200lx.
