Illuminating Century City Square with BEKA Schréder

by | Aug 26, 2016 | Featured Slider, Latest, News

BEKA Schréder is proud to have supplied an energy-efficient LED lighting solution for the newly developed Century City Square in Cape Town.

As part of Century City’s commitment to sustainable development aimed at reducing the precinct’s carbon footprint, Century City Square was developed based on green principles. Because of this, LED was chosen as the light source for the outdoor lighting of the area.

 BEKA Schréder was awarded the contract to supply the exterior lighting for Century City Square and internal roads. The ambiance on Century City Square is enhanced by the locally designed and manufactured LEDpost 23W LED bollard luminaire. One quadrant of the bollard uses blue LEDs to complement the water feature, and the rest uses white LEDs. The distinct design of the LEDpost shields pedestrians and drivers from glare and prevents spill light from being emitted above the horizontal. To maximise the reliability of the LEDs, the photometric engine is completely sealed to IP 66. This ensures that the photometric performance is maintained over time. Electronic temperature monitoring prevents overheating of the LEDs and power supply. It has been designed for energy saving and low maintenance applications.

Century City Square - LEDlume-mini 2The high-performance LEDlume-mini 36W LED streetlight on 5m mounting height glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) poles illuminate the road. Both are locally designed and manufactured, ensuring that they withstand the harsh coastal climate. The LEDlume-mini forms part of the LEDlume family, which sets a new benchmark in LED lighting with performing and flexible solutions that lead to the shortened payback time. With its tremendous efficiency, its long lifespan and its limited maintenance requirements, the LEDlume range enables you to minimise your Total Cost of Ownership.

There are many advantages of using a BEKA Schréder GRP Pole, including that they are non-corrosive and maintenance free, and their high bending strength ensures that they withstand the wind pressure experienced at the Cape. They are sustainable since the manufacturing process is much kinder to the environment than metal or timber products. The BEKAPOLE is vandal resistant and its light weight saves handling, transport and erection costs during installation.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. We are very proud to be associated with Descom and QDP Lighting & Electrical Design (Pty) Ltd (the Century City Square Precinct lighting designers) in providing a sustainable lighting solution for this project.
