BOC Gas, which is a member of the Linde Group, is Australia's leading gas & welding equipment specialist, offering gases, welders & welding supplies, PPE, workplace safety & industrial equipment.


BSS LED Australia supplied BOC Gas at Wetherill Park in Western Sydney with 85 of their Australian made 130w Pro LED High Bay lights, achieving an average of 240 lux. Due to their high-level WHS requirements, one of the deciding factors in selecting the Pro High Bay was its ability to throttle back the drive current during extreme temperature events as opposed to the electronic driver completely shutting down. This ensures that minimum lux levels to Australian Standards are achieved at all times minimising disruption to site operations.


The LED upgrade has resulted in a 70% reduction in the lighting running costs with an annual cost saving of $13,702 per year and 1,360 tonnes of carbon emissions. In addition, there are further saving due to the zero maintenance costs associated with running LED lights.
