The former docklands area in the east of London is interlinked via an innovative, driverless urban train known as the Docklands Light Railway (DLR). The DLR network stretches over a total of 31 kilometres and comprises 38 stations. The five new stations on the extended DLR section to London City Airport – West Silvertown, Pontoon Dock, London City Airport, King George V and Woolwich Arsenal have been fitted with linear luminaires that are specially developed for transport applications. These have been installed as platform lights and as a lighting system for the winding staircases. Protection class IP 65 ensures both lamp and reflector are protected from dust and dirt. This extremely robust light tool from the Selux range of transport luminaires is particularly suitable for applications of this type where luminaires are exposed to high levels of pedestrians and constant usage.

  • 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.
