  • Lamp efficacy

    Lamp efficacy

    Ensuring the lamp efficiently converts electricity into light (lm/W).

  • Ballast classification

    Ballast classification

    Controlling the electricity supply to the lamp (Energy Efficiency Index).

  • Luminaire distribution

    Luminaire distribution

    Controlling light emission using optics which bend and shape the light to the correct location.

  • System efficacy

    System efficacy

    Combining optical and thermal control within the luminaire (luminaire lm/W).

  • Presence/absence detection

    Presence/absence detection

    Presence: Lights automatically turn on/off with movement. Absence: Lights automatically turn off and must be manually switched on.

  • Daylight detection

    Daylight detection

    Artificial lighting which responds to the natural light conditions.

  • Constant illuminance

    Constant illuminance

    A function designed to produce correct light levels for the duration of the maintenance period.

  • Task-scene setting

    Task-scene setting

    Allowing the user to set scenes and adapt the lighting to different tasks.

  • Timed off

    Timed off

    Automatic cut-off can be installed to turn all lights off during unoccupied hours.

  • Task lighting

    Task lighting

    Lighting task areas with the correct amount of light.

  • Zoning of lighting

    Zoning of lighting

    Lighting is zoned according to area use.

  • Maintenance schedule

    Maintenance schedule

    Maintenance must be performed in response to product age, performance and environment.

  • Waste light

    Waste light

    Eliminating waste light which does not hit the intended target.

  • Reflectance


    Taking advantage of light which is reflected from the surface within the space.

  • Visible smart metering

    Results of actions can be quickly seen as increased or decreased energy use to encourage responsible energy consumption.

One of the latest high-mast urban lighting installations, completed at Salerno, uses Thorn floodlights.

Lighting the "Park of Mercatello", one of the largest parks in Italy, the installation is based on rectangular-section tapered masts from French maker, Aubrilam, interspersed between attractions such as an artificial lake, canal and outdoor artworks.

Each timber based "Eagle" mast supports four, flat glass floodlights (Troika), one on each side, above four circular projectors (Contrast R) inset in a vertical stack. It also incorporates blue LED Band light strips at the base. The system is planned so that the lighting distribution from the fixed Troika floodlights overlaps, resulting in a more uniform illumination at ground level, while the flexible, symmetrical Contrast R's allows for a variety of beam profiles to suit the individual application.
