    Megaman’s GU10 and Spiral energy saving lamps are being used for a variety of applications in the four-star Park Inn Hotel Hotel at London’s Heathrow, part of The Rezidor Hotel Group. The use of Megaman lamps has enabled the Park Inn to maintain its energy saving ethos whilst retaining the aesthetics of the interior decor.

    After initial comparison trials of the Megaman lamps with other brands within specific areas of the hotel, it was agreed to change bedrooms over to Megaman lamps.

    Megaman’s 11W GU10 lamps have been incorporated in existing fittings in guest bedrooms to provide a longer lamp life and reduce maintenance time and conversion costs.

    The GU10 lamps incorporate Megaman’s exclusive Ingenium technology, which delivers breakthrough lighting performance and a superior operating life expectancy of 15,000 hours, combined with improved life cycle switching and a shorter preheating time.

    In addition, the integral cooling tube keeps operating temperatures to a minimum for enhanced safety. With an operating life some seven and a half times longer than halogen and potential energy savings of up to 80 per cent, lamps in the GU10 range produce an even light distribution and can be used in areas where heat and glare discomfort can be a problem.

    Other products used in the Park Inn Heathrow Hotel include Megaman’s 11W Spiral and the IP64 Fozz Lighting Opera luminaire incorporating the company’s GU10 lamps, which have been used in the leisure areas and meeting rooms respectively.

    Megaman has recently filmed a few short videos that try to tackle the negative misconceptions that the public can sometimes pick up when looking at the subject of low energy lighting. You can view them on their website at
