Around 200 Siteco outdoor LED luminaires provide greater efficiency and economy along with very high quality of light
Last year the mayor and council took the decision to refurbish the existing SON streetlighting and completely upgrade to LED technology, and since then more than 200 Siteco LED outdoor luminaires ensure modern, sustainable lighting in Balgheim. The aim of the refurbishment was primarily to improve the lighting level and colour rendering, and thus improved visibility and an increased sense of safety and security for citizens on all roads, paths and squares. In addition to higher efficiency and economy, the new LED solutions should also radiate with an appealing and uniform design.
A total of 176 “DL30” town and park luminaires with warm white light colour (3000 Kelvin) and 36 “Streetlight 10” road luminaires with neutral white light (4000 Kelvin) were installed. All luminaires feature integrated technology for reducing lighting levels at times of low traffic. Simultaneously to refurbishing its road lighting, Balgheim has also upgraded the lighting of its church tower to LED – installing FL20 midi floodlights from Osram.
