GE Current Provides Durable and Efficient Lighting Solution for Petrol Station Chain

After being sold to American Industrial Partner, Current by GE changed its logo into GE Current, a Daintree company. The company shared its lighting case for Circle K with its petrol station network in Ireland.

According to GE Current, petrol station environments present a unique set of challenges to sign makers. Besides bright, vivid signage that need to be illuminated at both day and night, they are also more likely to register higher levels of air pollution such as sulphur dioxide (SO2) and other particulates which can combine with moisture to damage any electronics and lights housed within the sign.

When Canadian convenience store chain Circle K purchased the Topaz network of petrol stations in Ireland, the company knew that it had to rebrand all 420 sites with an array of illuminated signage that would stand the test of time. The company therefore invited a select group of sign makers to tender for a high-quality specification set by the network’s European partner.

Irish Prestige Signs, working closely with its long-term partners, Current and Lightsign, knew it could improve on the high standard set by Circle K in Europe. Working closely together, the three companies analyzed the needs of Circle K and explored various lighting options for a range of signage. Given the challenging environmental conditions often experienced by petrol stations, the team quickly decided that Current’s range of high-efficiency 24V Tetra® LED solutions would best meet the needs of the project.

Current’s 24V Tetra LED modules are engineered for long-term energy efficacy and shine brighter. It also offer a layer of protection against the elements and the corrosive combination of SO2 and moisture within the sign with Current’s OptiLens X technology.

In total, Irish Prestige Signs deployed 200,000 Tetra LED modules across the 420 sites, illuminating an incredible 5,500 signs ranging from MIDs and pylons to channel letters and fully illuminated canopies.
