InstallationNews A home grown smart solution for Scolmore

Scolmore Group looked close to home when considering the product requirements for the expansion and redesign of its Staffordshire HQ Visitor Centre.


pened in 2009, Scolmore’s Visitor Centre catered for up to

24 people and was designed to showcase and demonstrate products, as well as hosting internal meetings and presentations. As the business developed, the

requirement to invest in the Visitor Centre and showroom became a priority. Now accommodating up to 60 guests, the new facility – double the size of the original space – can host a range of events.

Lighting control was key – in terms of

energy efficiency and the variety of lighting function and scenes needed. Products from across Scolmore Group resulted in a smart solution that would endure. These included Scolmore’s lighting and wiring accessories, as well as CCTV and emergency lighting products from Group Company, ESP.

The vast ceiling space was divided into nine main sections allowing

for banks of lighting to be installed and controlled – with downlights at the centre and spotlights around the edges. Scolmore opted for the Inceptor Omni fire-rated, integrated LED downlight with pre-wired driver and flow connector. Forty Omnis were

installed in the ceiling and in pairs across the top of the product display pods. Flexibility and ease of installation are vital attributes of the Inceptor Omni and features include an adjustable colour temperature switch, interchangeable fixed and adjustable bezels, as well as an insulation support clip. Helping to attain the quick and easy installation of the lighting products was Scolmore’s Flow lighting management system, which was incorporated into the ceiling space. And the lighting

control was achieved with Scolmore’s Click Smart system. From the GridPro collection, two, 24-gang plates have been fitted – one at either end of the visitor centre – bringing together all the lighting control components. Other switches and sockets came from the Deco Plus collection of

premium decorative metal wiring accessories. Security is via ESP’s CCTV and emergency lighting ranges, including LED maintained emergency exit signs from ESP’s Duceri collection. Luceco scores at Al Jazira Club Football Club

Luceco has recently relit the public areas of the Al Jazira Club, a football club from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, playing in the UAE Arabian Gulf League.


l Jazira Club was founded in 1974 through a merger between the Al Khalidiya Club with the Al Butain Club.

Luceco and energy partner, Gargash Lighting Systems, met a design

brief which included the need for energy efficient lighting with low maintenance, that would provide the club with cost savings, whilst enhancing the overall experience through more effective lighting. Carbon Downlights were installed in corridors and lounges at the club,

offering an ideal replacement for compact fluorescent downlights, providing running cost savings of more than 60%. Designed to retrofit ceiling cut outs of common compact fluorescent downlights, the Carbon is also supplied with interchangeable bezel options. Due to the reduction in energy consumption required, LED LuxPanel luminaires were also installed throughout other facilities including the players massage area. Cost effective and energy efficient, LuxPanel provides over 50,000 hours illumination without maintenance and are easy to install using plug and play drivers. With the project completed, CO2 emissions have been reduced by

over 5 tonnes annually and energy savings of 65% have been calculated. Additional savings have also been gained from not having to replace failed fluorescent lamps, providing a truly no maintenance, cost effective LED lighting solution for Al Jazira Football Club.
