OUTDOOR LED LIGHTING: TRADITIONAL DESIGNS


L


ED lighting should now be the norm, there’s no excuse for fitting energy-guzzling CFL, halogen and even incandescent bulbs in our schools, offices, public buildings or homes. All the options you need are readily available and with guaranteed quality. One of the names you are most likely to hear when you enquire about replacing outdoor lighting with LEDs, is NIGHTeye from Timeguard, the firm that has consistently led the way with its combinations of innovative design, superior quality and fast-fix convenience.


DESIGN The original ultra-compact pan-and-tilt Timeguard LED


NIGHTeyes broke (IMAGE LED200PIRB) the mould and were a completely new concept in outdoor lighting design. Small and yet remarkably powerful, these floodlights are compact and stylish enough to be used anywhere. A range of more business-like looking LED floodlights followed,


(IMAGE LEDX20PIRB) with precision- designed lenses and reflector plates to ensure that the light that is emitted is not only diffused and more pleasing to the eye, but also give more comprehensive coverage for security. The polycarbonate casing and easy wiring, make these lights an installers’ favorite. After all, these safety and security lights are likely, by definition, more likely to be in high and relatively inaccessible places!


This winter has seen the addition of New super slim options to the range. IMAGE new LED Die-Cast Bulkheads + set shot on stairs) Made from solid die-cast metal with polycarbonate lenses for impact resistance, they are tough enough for industrial and commercial installations and benefit from the even light pattern as do other models in the NIGHTeye range, thanks to the layout of the individual diodes behind the frosted light-diffusing lenses. Schools, colleges, offices and back yards everywhere win all-round: energy saving with faster payback, good looks, good quality and a straightforward installation job to replace old energy-guzzling bulkheads.


SUPERIOR LIGHT OUTPUT – DIFFUSED AND WIDE BEAMED One of the main barriers to more widespread use of LED lighting, despite the obvious energy savings they offer, has been the quality of light output and overcoming this has been at the heart of the investment and design process behind the Timeguard range from the outset. The layout of the diode array, the lenses that cover them and the precise shape of the back reflector plates all combine to create the right lighting effects: effects that make LEDs a suitable replacement for the gentler incandescent, CFL lighting we are used to, and to provide the wide beam coverage that we require from security floodlights.


QUALITY AND RELIABILITY


Of course an LED lamp requires a lot more than the diodes – there is also a driver which needs to be suitable to last the intended life of the product and a heat sink to dissipate the heat produced and the all-important PIR detectors. The quality of these components is as important as that of the diode in building a long-lasting product. For instance, relatively few of the PIRs on the market are actually rated to switch LEDs which, despite their low rating, do generate a significant spike in switching. Some Led lamps do not even have proper cooling fins. Very cheap is rarely very cheerful. The most economical lighting of all is the lighting made from quality components which can be fitted and forgotten, and that usually means a trusted brand name like Timeguard. www.timeguard.com


PUBLIC SECTOR ESTATES MANAGEMENT • JANUARY 2015 19


However, successful as the first NIGHTeyes were, the market soon let it be known that nothing is ever going to displace the original, traditional bulkhead design altogether. So then Timeguard designed new LED bulkhead lights that are compact, strong and attractive, (IMAGE LED88PIR) with the same design edge as the original NIGHTeye models. Clever lens diffusers ensure that they emit an even spread light ideal for both safety and security Lighting, making them a direct replacement for old-style bulkheads.


BROUGHT UP TO DATE Choice of designs means all outside lighting can now be replaced with the lowest energy option.
