The opening of the Northern Ticket Hall on King´s Cross, St Pancras underground station represents the conclusion to an important part of a development project for London's infrastructure. Using selected materials that are both elegant and robust and flexible at the same time, a bright and spacious new underground station has arisen. The Northern Ticket Hall provides an additional connection to St Pancras, while the new station at the end of the original concourse houses shops and other service providers.

In addition an entrance to the new lower-lying underground stations of the Northern, Victoria and Piccadilly lines has been created. This enables greater dispersion of passengers on the platforms, preventing excessive congestion. The additional entrance ensures greater safety too, providing alternative routes that can be used from every platform. The Northern Ticket Hall has a simple, elegant and timeless design and besides optimal use of daylight, 90 x Selux M 125 luminaires aid passenger orientation.

  • This luminaire can be used wherever safe light is essential. For instance in local-distance and long-distance transport zones, stations and bus stops, waiting rooms, multi-storey carparks, public squares and subways, bridges or laboratories, sports grounds or correctional facilities. They are available as flush-mounted or surface-mounted luminaires with four different diffusers for all applications and high protection requirements IK09 or IK10 and IP65. Additional power supply or data cables can be installed on the media carriers, enabling inconspicuous routing of cables and tubes even across several levels.
