URBAN LIGHTING – A BIT OF A MIXED BAG
If you need to source Urban Lighting or it’s a requirement in a project that you are managing, you’ll know that there`s many different facets to getting the right solution. With different urban landscapes come a variety of influencing factors. For example, if you`re looking to light up the outside of a hotel, the lighting set-up needed will be completely different to illuminating a busy city street. Lighting is a vital part of infrastructure, having both an economic and social impact, so when you`re sourcing Urban Lighting products, make sure you factor in all the performance requirements. The quickest way to do this is to take expert advice – if you want to talk through your needs, call us now on

And if you want a flavor of the things to consider – here’s a couple of good examples for Street lighting and School lighting.
URBAN STREET LIGHTING
Urban Street lighting is a vital part of successful urban development, with properly lit areas attracting more desirable tenants. Having properly lit streets or housing estates is sure to make tenants feel safer. In other words, the social impact of good urban lighting leads to a positive economic effect. But obviously not only do streets need to be lit, this lighting needs to be sustainable and easy to maintain. The best solution is likely to be LED Lighting, and here’s a number of urban projects that demonstrate this success. If you’re concerned about maintenance, LED is particularly beneficial as it really is a lot less hassle than other solutions. And happily, in this context Litho has everything you need.
Take the Viena-L for example, a really reliable LED Street Light from Litho. The Viena uses the newest generation by MICROLED PLUS of 150-160Lm/w, with TÜV certificate aswell! This allows the Viena to have a much stronger, purer light. Not only this, but the sheets are made in 3mm galvanized and painted, so there`s no worry about shadows on the ground.
Naturally making sure school grounds are properly lit is an absolute priority for those responsible for the properties. And this is especially true in the winter months, as it`s darker both in the morning and the evening. Lighting schools isn`t a matter of social or economic impact, instead it`s just an issue of safety. And as a community, we understand that it’s something that every student deserves to be able to take for granted.
For a light that has suitable spread and strength, again LED is the best option for school lighting projects. A big focus is to have the maximum light spread you can, while having as little poles as possible. LED is perfect to deliver on both goals.
Litho has many LED products with a wide light spread, such as the Italy LED Light fitting . This light fitting has a number of features, particularly low absorption and high purity glasses along with a divergent-asymmetric geometry. This all amounts to a lighting beam that has a greater extension as well as uniformity.
Using a light fitting like the Italy will mean you won`t need lightpoles all over the school yard – and they have their own hazards so it’s good to minimise the number of poles – not least because this will be economically beneficial too.
