Effective distribution of daylight is achived down to even the lowest platform level. Different lighting solutions were applied on all different floors. Within the overall scheme, the design philosophy for the 54 types of light fittings was to create integral architectural elements, not just after effects - satin lines of light for for commercial areas, wall fittings for the façade illumination, panoramic lifts lit by curved luminaire and the ´Stalactite´ fittings made from Duran glass cylinders. All luminaires are IP54 rated and, due to the near continuos operation of the building, have been designed with ease of maintenance as a key feature.

  • Survivor provides customers with a premium quality vandal-proof and tamper-resistant fixture that is aesthetically suited to mounting conditions in in areas requiring high levels of protection such as railway platforms, pedestrian bridges, tunnels, bus stations, overpasses, parking garages, sports complexes and laboratories. A sleek and shallow fixture, its gentle curved form is especially suited for applications where an unobtrusive fixture is required, or to work within architectural lighting schemes. It is constructed of durable materials, cast aluminium end plates, with a highly impact-resistant prismatic or glass shielding, stainless steel captive fasteners and an extruded aluminium housing for ease of maintenance, suitable for both vertical and horizontal applications, surface mounted or suspended. Survivor is available in various lengths, with media trunking and can be operated with a choice of LED or fluorescent lamps. The luminaire is fully gasketed for IP 67 water resistance, and dust and insect ingress control.
