Make residents

proud at night

Aesthetic Enhancement

Night time is when we’re ready to relax – and when many people take in the scenery during an evening stroll. Give them a visual treat, by bringing out the best in your urban surroundings with flexible white light. It complements both traditional and modern constructions, and gives greenery a healthy, verdant look.

People-approved performance

 

White light is ideal for both decorative and functional lighting in communal areas. In one survey, almost 90% of respondents agreed that white light is more authentic than traditional yellow sodium lights. This natural-feeling ambience makes people feel at home in a city center and more.

Helping cities grow

 

Many modern municipalities take illumination seriously, and white light is growing in popularity among them. The President of the Somosaguas Neighbourhood Association in Madrid, Spain said, “The lighting complies with our strict aesthetic requirements. The white light is closer to natural vision, which increases the quality of life for our local residents - as well as increasing property values.

Measuring perception of light color

 

White light is a huge improvement on traditional illumination – but don’t just take our word for it. In 2005, an EVALUM* field test was carried out in Lyon, France, investigating respondents’ preferences for lighting types. Students living on the INSA campus and residents living in the city’s ‘Sixth district’ were asked to evaluate various light sources.

 

The results showed that people clearly preferred lamps with warm, white light of 3000 K color temperature. The satisfaction levels associated with these lamps were higher than those of yellow high-pressure sodium lamps and cold white light sources (4000-4200K spectrum).
