Lights for Flights


Dublin Airport’s brand new development of Terminal 2 proves to be a perfect project for Sill.


for fast installation and in order to provide plug-and-play operation. Integrated into the space between the structural roof steels and the stretched fabric soffit, the high performance, low glare projectors illuminate all the high roofed areas in Arrivals and Departures, as well as Pier E. Sill’s classic 458 series asymmetric


Sill has added another airport to their long list of successful transport projects. The company’s most recent venture saw the development of a €395 million Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport, which can comfortably hold up to 15 million passengers a year. In order to complete the project, Sill worked closely with the lighting designers from Arup from the very beginning, creating a special gimbal frame for up to three Sill 021 projectors. The 021s were supplied in a variety of HID wattages and beam angles so that they would suit the geometry of their final locations, as well as with compact fluorescent lamps for emergency operations.


The Sill gimbal projectors were provided on time and in batches to suit the build programme. They arrived ready assembled


52


projectors uplight the main structural elements and soffits around the roof spine skylights, whilst 490 power projectors provide additional lighting to soffits and walls. In all, some 1,800 Sill projectors are used on the project, which was the largest construction project in Ireland at the time. Vasiliki Malakasi, lighting designer at Arup commented, “We are very pleased with the projectors and their photometric performance. The Sill luminaires were fit for purpose, and robust yet elegant in design. Most importantly, we managed to work well with the Sill product design team developing special fittings and parts. We had technical back up and support throughout the project from initial design to onsite installation.” All of the Sill projector types used on the scheme have Si12 corrosion resistant die-cast aluminium housings with large


heat dissipating cooling fins. The reflectors are made of 99.98% pure aluminium, chemically polished and anodised with a UV filtering toughened safety glass sealed by a silicone gasket. The overall Terminal 2 project also benefits


from an improved internal campus road network at Dublin Airport, a major utilities upgrade, a new multi-storey car park and the provision of sites for a new ground transportation centre and future metro station.
