Ashington Academy


The North East Learning Trust (NELT) was established in 2015 and comprises 12 schools firmly focussed on continually improving experiences and outcomes for the almost 7,000 children in their care.

One of the schools within the Trust is Ashington Academy. When it was recently decided to upgrade its canteen, kitchen and pantry areas modern looking, energy efficient, high performance lighting was an important element of the improvements.

NELT’s Mechanical & Electrical Engineer Adam King specified NVC’s products, which he was familiar with as they are already used for reactive maintenance across the Trust’s portfolio.

Adam said: “I have had NVC products installed on many previous projects. They are good value in terms of their quality and their price and their extensive warranty is an extra reason to specify them for the peace of mind that brings.”

NVC lighting products installed by local contractor Gemini Electrical Services include:

GREENLAND IK 10, IP66-rated non-corrosive, impact and chemical resistant, industrial LED luminaires, which provide the dust and water tightness required in the school’s kitchen. 

DALLAS stylish and robust IK06 surface/suspended LED luminaires offering a very contemporary look needed for the canteen.

TEXAS economical batten IP20 rated luminaires that have surface mounted LEDs on a metal-core PCB, steel body construction and opal polycarbonate diffusers.

DENALI robust IK10, IP65 LED circular bulkheads ideal for wall or surface mounting which have been installed outside the school because they are both anti-tamper and vandal resistant.
