Introducing Ultra-thin Panel Light with Air Slots: Enhanced Lighting and Improved Ventilation

Case Study

  • Customer: SAM & SONS LIGHTING(SAM & SONS LIGHTING is a local based lighting company in Melbourne that deals with sales of lighting products.)
  • Location: Melbourne, Australia
  • Product/service used: Ultra-thin Panel Light

1. Overview

This customer contacted us from our website and requested suitable commercial lighting for his office. They used the conventional fluorescent tube fittings with air vents in their building, and they wanted replaced them for a more suitable commercial lighting, energy saving, reducing maintenance cost and natural ventilation.

After intense and productive discussion by our team, We recommended the Ultra-thin Panel Light with Air Slots for our client. The Ultra-thin Panel Light uses high quality SMD LED as light source. It is very bright with even light output and saves energy up to 50%.

Another interesting reason why we recommended Ultra-thin Panel Light was that, it occupy very limited space on the ceiling, so it makes the installation easy and flexible. it is also directly replace traditional ceiling lights or halogen down lights.

We can do it in round or square shape, as the size can be made according to the customer’s request.

So we customized this product for them, make a perfect replacement of the traditional or conventional fluorescent tube fittings with Ultra-thin Panel Light with Air slots that’s energy saving, has better light efficiency, air return capacity specification, longer life and better maintenance cost.

2. Challenge

This customer had an issue with the commercial lighting in his office cause the energy consumption was high and also the lack of natural ventilation. The absence of natural ventilation in the ceiling structure due to the air conditions is an issue. Without proper ventilation, the air in the building becomes stagnant, leading to several issues that impact the lighting conditions.

Poor airflow and quality can result from the lack of ventilation. It can cause dust, pollutants, and odors to accumulate in the space. These airborne particles can settle on lighting fixtures, diffusers, and bulbs, reducing their efficiency and light output. Dust accumulation can also create a dimming effect, decreasing the overall brightness of a place.

Also, the lack of natural ventilation can lead to thermal stratification. As hot air rises to the upper levels of the space, there can be a noticeable temperature difference between the ceiling and the floor. The temperature disparity can affect lighting fixtures’ performance and lifespan, especially those near the ceiling. Heat buildup can cause the lights to overheat, leading to reduced lifespan and potential malfunctions.


The customer was hesitant to fix these commercial lighting issues due to the potential costs. Installing LED lights, new ventilation systems, and upgrading the necessary fixtures involves substantial money. He was curious to know if our lighting products were cost-effective. He was also skeptical that the building’s design, infrastructure, and layout might not easily accommodate the required modifications. He knows the lighting adjustments he needs to do require well trained professionals with expertise.

3. Solutions

It is worth knowing that the client found out about our ODM services via our website and decided to reach out. “I did not have to tell them what to do or how to handle the situation. I just told them my current lighting challenges and the customer service representative was on point. She was friendly, receptive, and quite knowledgeable.” As a result of the above reason, the client decided to entrust us with the LED light project.


Now back to the solutions, We recommended the Ultra Thin Panel Light with Air Slots to this customer in place of an ordinary LED panel light.


The Ultra Thin Panel Light with Air Slots is a LED lighting fixture. It features an exceptionally slim design and incorporates air slots. The air slots are strategically placed within the panel to enhance the cooling efficiency of the light, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.


The design allows for effective heat dissipation and prevents the light from overheating. Hence, preventing a negative impact on its lifespan and efficiency. Incorporating air slots in the Ultra Thin Panel Light demonstrates a thoughtful engineering approach. It ensures the maintenance of optimal operating conditions and enhances the overall durability of the fixture.

4. Implementation

The Ultra Thin Panel Light was mounted on the ceiling strategically to maximize light distribution. We ensured that proper electrical connections were made. The air slot placement was carefully determined for optimal placement of the air slots. We wanted the positioning to enhance the flow of natural air. Hence, he has to create a new natural ventilation pathway.


After we created the natural ventilation pathways, the ultra-thin panel light was placed nearby. In that way, the air slots are aligned with the direction of the airflow. We adjusted the air slots’ number and size to maintain the air circulation’s order and rate. Subsequently, we added air filters to the air slots to reduce the entrance of debris and dust. Our final touch was the addition of intelligent control timers and sensors to get the maximum benefit of the ultra-thin LED panel light.

5. Results

The customer currently has a uniform and efficient illumination across his office. The ultra-thin design of the LED panel light gives the office a sleek and modern aesthetic while delivering high-quality lighting. Integrating air slots in the panel allows for natural airflow within the office. By placing the panel near ventilation pathways, there is free movement of fresh air into the office.


The Ultra Thin Panel Light is designed to be energy-efficient. Hence, it consumes less power compared to traditional lighting fixtures. The customer is enjoying the reduced energy costs and smaller carbon footprint percentage. The ultra-thin design of the panel light enables it to be adequately mounted on the ceiling, minimizing space consumption. Our Ultra Thin Panel Light with Air Slots is versatile and flexible and can be tailored to suit any lighting need.


The harmony of natural ventilation and good lighting provides a sense of comfort and increased productivity. Nothing beats productivity in an appealing and healthy atmosphere. The Ultra Thin Panel Light with Air Slots fixed for this customer offers a wide range of customizable options. These options include dimming capabilities, adjustable air slot sizes, and color temperatures. Our LED panel lights are durable, reliable, and require less maintenance, unlike the traditional or conventional panel lights.


According to the customer, he said “My office has a new lease of life. The ultra-thin panel light with air slots is the absolute game changer. It took my workspace from ten to a hundred. I can work and breathe better, thereby increasing my productivity and delivery rate. The best decision I made in a while.”
