Tamlite's range of urban lighting has been developed with the demanding requirements of designers, architects and installers in mind. Regardless of the application we know how important it is to balance energy reduction objectives with a need to uphold health and safety and keep a close eye on the budget. All of this has to be achieved without compromising on functionality, light quality or aesthetics.
Tamlite understands the requirements for safe, well-lit and secure car parks, whether owned by councils or attached to private retail and leisure outlets. Ongoing maintenance costs, including down-time, man-hours, replacement or additional materials, can be reduced by the installation of modern systems which incorporate programmable controls and monitoring.
Many roads and pedestrian routes now incorporate cycle routes and other traffic zones, and a number of regulations must be considered in the planning. All designs need to consider the safety and comfort of pedestrians and road users. So careful planning to avoid shadowing, glare and dark areas is vital.
Tamlite understands the importance of robust, tamper-proof lighting that is also able to withstand extremes of weather and temperature, particularly for flood-lighting. Free-standing and wall-mounted flood-lighting must incorporate long-lasting components, and be of high-quality materials and finishes, to deliver lighting that is as maintenance-free as possible. Other siting locations should also be considered, such as ground lights and spotlights in order to achieve greater coverage and reduction of possible dead-zones.
Lighting for building facades requires a scheme and a solution that ensures colour, detail and uniqueness of the architecture are highlighted. Accurate colour rendering means that the colours and details of building facades appear in their best light.
Tamlite understands the necessity for safe, well lit and secure pathways, whether through property owned by councils, alongside roads, bus or cycle lanes, or attached to private retail and leisure outlets. Ongoing maintenance costs might include down-time, man-hours, replacement or additional materials, the occassional requirement for road-closures, and the necessity to hire specialist equipment to service. These can be reduced by the installation of modern systems which incorporate programmable controls and monitoring.
Town planners, Councils, Town Centre Managers, Emergency Services and all those who use town centres for work or leisure, must all be considered when planning or designing town centre lighting installations. Knowledge of their requirements and the need to ensure urban spaces are accessible to all, is key to understanding the complexity of planning excellent, cost-effective and energy-efficient lighting.
