GWR were not only updating St Erth’s platform lighting - for which they used their preferred product: twin Kirium Pro 1 lanterns, but also a new driver’s walkway on the periphery of the station.
DW Windsor were able to offer a lighting design, with newly launched Kirium Bollards, at 8m spacings, which surpassed the design requirements and used less fittings than products also competing for the scheme. Each bollard runs at 5W, presenting an extremely energy efficient way of lighting. Most other bollards when used for this type of installation need to be run at over 20W each – a 75% saving in energy consumption.
Kirium Bollard’s unobtrusive design sits discretely within the stations Grade II listed appearance and coordinates perfectly with the Kirium Pro lanterns.
The bollard’s asymmetric narrow beam optic directs light exactly where it is needed, reducing light pollution and disability glare. Meeting a crucial need for approaching train divers.
