The final lighting scheme consists of Red Dot award winning, Ren Performance Plus 4000K bollards for the walkways, spaced at an average of 10-12m apart.
While Kirium Pro 1 4000K luminaires on 6M Telford columns were selected for the general area and car park lighting.
Ren delivers a low energy (336lm) exceptionally uniform lighting solution in an architecturally centric form – clean and unfussy – complementary to the new modern school building.
Its comfortable, ambient light provides enhanced vertical illumination for facial recognition, overcoming the low performance sometimes expected with bollard lighting.
Emergency versions of the Kirium Pro 1 luminaires provide 3-hour backup lighting, satisfying the requirements of BS 5266.
Both luminaires are fitted with dusk to dawn sensors and time switch controls which turn them on/off during set times to prevent unwanted wasted light; with light pollution prevented through precision optics directing light to where needed; with minimal upward light.
