OPTIMAL TRAFFIC FLOW AND HIGH TRAFFIC SAFETY

Road and street lighting can play a crucial role in the attention, behavior and ability of motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. Many traffic accidents occur every year under conditions that could probably have been counteracted with good and well-planned lighting. In demanding traffic situations where the traffic density can be high or visibility limited, it is extra important to have the right amount of light in the right place and a true-to-nature color reproduction.

WHAT LIGHTING FOR ROADS & STREETS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT:

» DEMANDING ENVIRONMENTS – The physical design of the luminaires is of utmost importance because luminaires in outdoor environments are exposed to enormously tough strains and the risk of vandalism. High-quality street luminaires should have a high density class (IP) and vandal class (IK). The luminaire housing should have efficient heat dissipation with solid heat sinks and be made of corrosion-resistant material with oven-hardened powder coating.

» DESIGN OF THE ROAD PROFILE – Each road or street is unique and it is important take some basic parameters into account – road width, post height, post distance and the position of the post in relation to the road. To ensure the best possible end result for each lighting installation, we tailor the lighting to these conditions. With this as a starting point, it is possible to assess the luminaires’ optimal power, optics and luminaire angle.

» LIGHTING CLASS
Amount and type of traffic are taken into account when determining the need for street lighting. Higher lighting classes place higher demands on the lighting. Municipalities and cities define a lighting class for the street that tells how much lighting is needed and what evenness is required.

» GOOD OPERATING ECONOMY – An investment in lighting for roads and streets is a large part of the public budget and a good total calculation with the lowest possible operating costs lays the foundation for an attractive operating economy for the entire facility.

» FUTURE PROOF TECHNOLOGY – In the lighting industry, development is going at a furious pace and the luminaires are constantly getting smarter. Today, street luminaires are often equipped with sensors and controls. Smarter street luminaires not only contribute to energy efficiency but also to the ability to communicate with different control systems.

Energy efficiency and smart controls for a profitable investment

In a street lighting system, energy savings are already achieved when switching from traditional light sources to LED technology. Reduced costs for energy consumption and maintenance work result in savings that ensure a quick return on investment in modern street lighting. The post distances can in many cases be increased because our optical lenses distribute the light with such precision, ie fewer luminaires are required on the same road section. As standard, we offer a pre-programmed night dimming profile, but we also have the option of programming each individual luminaire as desired. It is of course possible to equip the luminaires with sensors for light or movement for maximum control of energy costs.

High quality and optimal light comfort in all situations

With almost 20 years of experience in street lighting, we have developed customized street luminaires with strong construction and advanced optical lenses to be able to offer the most attractive solutions on the market. An optimized light image benefits not only road users but also nearby homes and nature around illuminated roads. The right luminaire with the right optics places the light where it is needed without unpleasant glare and contributes to minimized light pollution.

We tailor the lighting installation

There are many parameters that come into play when planning a road lighting system. In addition to the basic parts of the road profile, such as lighting class, road width, post height, post distance and the post’s position in relation to the road, it is also important to take into account any maintenance factor, number of lanes and road surface reflection properties. Our skilled consultants help with lighting calculations completely free of charge.
