Hayleys Electronic Lighting (Pvt ) Ltd which is a subsidiary of Hayleys Ltd, has been the sole distributor for Philips Lighting in Sri Lanka since 1983. The company has been engaged in the lighting business since then, and has taken the lead role in promoting the world renowned Philips CFLs since the early 1990’s.During this period the country faced a severe power crisis brought on by the adverse weather conditions prevailing in the country at that time.  It was during this time that the need for Energy Saving was witnessed in a prominent way and CFLs became popular.

With many inferior CFL products entering the market the consumers should be made aware and educated on the possible health hazards.Hayleys Electronic Lighting as a responsible company engaged in the lightingbusiness since the inception of the energy saving drive in the 90’s we decided to educate the consumers further on thistopic.

Lighting plays a vital role in the quality of life as it affects productivity, emotion, sight and wellbeing. Today most of our time is spent indoors under artificial lighting. At times we spend as much as 8 – 15 hours under artificial lighting. This is especially experienced at work places, apartments and condominiums which generally require artificial lighting during the entire daytime. This can have a negative impact especially if the lighting conditions are not adequate or do not meet the standards specified by the industry for safe usage.

The main safety factor to be considered is UV radiation that is emitted by the CFLs. Should the CFL bulb’s phosphor coating be faulty in standard there could be a risk of UV radiation exposure to the user. This is further compounded by the fact that the permitted Exposure time (PET) to a CFL is 8 hours at a stretch. Very often people spend more than 8 hours under artificial light which most often is provided by CFL. Philips CFL surpasses this industry standard to give a 24 hour permitted exposure time. The ability to give this extended time arises from the superior technology of PHILIPS. Philips CFLs which uses two protective layers namely Cerium and secondly it uses the optimum size of phosphor grain for the glass coating negating any harmful UV radiation escaping the bulb.

Philips CFLs also use the latest bright booster technology that ensures more than 80% savings and offers long lasting consistent light throughout the lifetime of the product. Philips CFLs are environmentally friendly due to the lowest mercury content and recycling of mercury and has been certified by Planet Ark as being environmentally friendly. Apart from offering the best and safest product Hayleys Lighting also took the initiative of educating the consumers on Energy Saving by launching a booklet titled “Energy Saving Tips” which in very simple form gives handy tips on practical ways by which electricity could be saved.The prudent use of electricity would be an economical drive for Sri Lanka while the masses too will be benefitted with a sustainable greener future.
