It was only last September that we launched our modular Linialite range but the reaction has been overwhelming. We thought we’d share with you one of the many installations currently taking place across the UK . . .
Key areas of Craigavon Area Hospital, in Northern Ireland, are now enjoying the benefits of a very imaginative Linialite installation. Eschewing the any-angle intersection facility in favour of an innovative installation of straight fittings of varying length, the main corridor through the hospital (known as Hospital Street) and the trauma unit are also benefitting from the use of colour changing RGB LEDs.
A random pattern was created along the corridors by using a variety of luminaire lengths – 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1500mm – placed at irregular intervals. This was designed to reduce repeating stroboscopic effects for trolley-borne patients. These Linialite luminaires were also fitted with micro prism optics to control glare.
The colour changing RGB luminaires were also chosen for their soothing properties. They operate in 5 minute cycles which was calculated to give users the best experience – not too slow that the effect is lost, not too fast that it is distracting.
Larger areas were fitted with combinations of a pair of luminaires installed end-to-end, one end being pure white (DALI controlled) and the other end being the colour changing RGB version.
We hope you will agree that the effects are stunning.
