134 TECHNOLOGY / LED CASE STUDY MALL IS BEAUTIFUL A shift to Megaman’s LED reflector series has resulted in dramatic savings at Festival Walk in Hong Kong.


One of Hong Kong’s most prestigious shopping malls, Festival Walk in Kowloon Tong, has undergone a lighting refurbishment with dramatic results. A switch to energy saving LED lighting taken from Megaman’s LED Reflector Series has helped the complex achieve an overall 17% reduction in energy consumption (387,813 kWh) and dramatic CO2 Reduction (271,469 kg). A shining example of the potential of ‘green’ lighting, Festival Walk has replaced the lights within the mall’s food courts, public spaces, escalator soffits and other general lighting areas with LED equivalents. In addition to reducing the amount of energy consumed throughout the mall, the LED Reflector Series lamps have the added benefit of a much longer lamp life (up to 30,000 hours) than their halogen equivalents, excellent colour rendering (up to Ra92) throughout the lamps’ life and lumen maintenance properties. One of the main light sources used


throughout the Festival Walk to ensure a warm, friendly ambience, was Megaman’s MR16 LED Reflector Series. Designed for use in standard MR16 applications, the 4W, 6W, 7W and 10W LED MR16 Reflector Series light sources provide the ideal solution for high quality accent lighting. Megaman’s LED 10W and 15W AR111 Reflector range were also used throughout the mall. With the same high quality light intensity and colour rendering as traditional AR111 spotlights (colour rendering of up to Ra92), but with no UV light radiation, negligible IR light radiation or residual glare, the LED AR111 range was ideal for use around the retail outlets and food court areas. As a result of Megaman’s patented Thermal Conductive HighwayTM (TCH) technology, both the MR16 and AR111 LED Reflector Series’ have superb heat dissipation, lighting performance and lumen maintenance, and last up to 13 times longer and use 80% less power than their halogen equivalents. www.megamanlighting.com


HEAT PROVEN Illumination Physics’ expertise in extreme temperatures proved essential for this Abu Dhabi exterior.


Built from curved gleaming blue and green glass panels, the Rocco Forte Hotel’s wavy mosaic structure is an eye-catching addition to Abu Dhabi’s cityscape. To enhance its appearance at night, Illumination Physics were asked to apply their knowledge of installing schemes that can cope with the country’s extreme temperatures. Hong Kong, Europe and the Gulf of Arabia are all strong markets for Illumination Physics. Both require a quite different design approach because of the ambient temperature and the extreme temperatures attained by the surface of modern buildings. Their solution for the Rocco Forte was to install a custom version of their popular IP Speck – an LED façade node specially designed to cope with the harsh Middle East Climate. Designed to withstand non- operating temperatures of 90 degrees Celsius and operating temperatures of 75


degrees Celsius, the Speck is an extremely robust option that uses six Rebel RGB LEDs, driven at 350 milliamps.


The LED fixture needed to be mounted on a number of different curtain wall finishes, including mounting on a glass spider wall system, mullion curtain wall system and to a concrete facade.


The Speck series of products have domed lenses that provide high visibility, even from shallow viewing angles. This is of particular benefit as the hotel has an undulating wave form and the domed lens ensures that the apparent brightness appears the same regardless of the curvature of the façade. The light fixtures, special cables, drivers and control equipment were provided as a total solution. The contract was managed by Illumination Physics agent in the UAE, Cinmar Lighting. www.illuminationphysics.com
