Light projects the World Of Hospitality 41 The Retina Range Lighting the way to hospitality Two innovative new fittings, the Retina and the LEDBar, offer very versatile solutions for a wide variety of lighting applications. Designed to mix function with aesthetics, they capitalise on the rapid advances in lighting technology. They have been launched by London-based Light Projects, a leader in the innovative design, manufacture and supply of lighting fittings and accessories for interior, exterior, display and hospitality lighting applications. The Retina is the latest track fitting from Light Products. This stylised fitting is available in two sizes; the smaller Retina I in 8W or 15W and larger Retina II in 25W, 30W or 35W. Both offer various beam angles and colour temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 4000K or 5000K. They feature a CRI of 80 or with high CRI versions available going up to 97 CRI and versions are suitable for use with almost all dimming systems, including Dali, 1-10V and Triac. Designed to work on existing tracks from all the major suppliers, they are ideal for new projects or to retrofit and adapt into existing schemes. Importantly, one of this fitting’s design features gives almost unlimited adjustability enabling it to swivel and turn 350° both horizontally and vertically while the centre of gravity remains central to the transformer track itself. This ingenious detail not only makes it aesthetically pleasing to the eye but ensures minimal torque is applied to the track, thereby increasing the life cycle for both. Project: Prince Edward Theatre Lighting Design : Pritchard Themis Product used: Lensed LEDBar Used to highlight the building’s art deco arches and high level architectural detailing Both feature a cleverly designed accessory holder within its body to house scrims, louvres and filters. This negates the need for unsightly external attachments, making it a versatile choice for all kinds of applications, from display lighting through to accent and floodlighting. It is available in black, white and silver. The LEDBar is a family of Linear LED Systems designed to enhance architectural details, objects and spaces and to ensure a consistent quality of light. StatFlux, CrossFlux, LEDBar Nano, Mini and Lensed are available in custom lengths and can be joined for continuous illumination without blackspots and with optional dimming available. Statflux and CrossFlux are both surface mounted, while the latter has the additional capability of altering its colour temperature via DMX, ranging from a warm 2600K to a very cool 6700K. This is perfect for scene setting in hotel, restaurant or bar environments and also for seasonal displays in hotel retail outlets as well as offering decorative and daylight enhancements. The LEDBar Nano, Mini and Lensed are all compact surface mounted or recessed designs allowing for easy installation within confined spaces and with a robust aluminium heatsink which provides excellent thermal management.
