LED lighting icon

Lighting Solutions

About a quarter of your electricity bill is spent on lighting. Long lasting and shatter resistant, LEDs reduce your ongoing maintenance and replacement costs and lower your energy bills for years, both on lighting and cooling costs in summer.

New lighting fixtures and LEDs provide better quality light and modernize the aesthetics of your bank. High-efficiency lighting fixtures can use up to 90% less energy—and money—and controls save you money by automatically turning lights off in unoccupied spaces or dimming lights in empty parking lots.
