Gradus Lighting Creates Bright Sparks at Queen Mary University, London
11 October 2010
Lighting specialist Gradus has supplied Queen Mary University, London with step lighting solutions for six of its newly refurbished lecture theatres.With 16,000 students, Queen Mary is one of the largest University of London colleges, and has invested more than £250 million over the last five years on improving its facilities.
Gradus installed and supplied its Interlok Advance step lighting in White to create a pinpoint lighting effect on the stairs in one of the lecture theatres.
Gradus’ Continuity step lighting in white was installed in a further five lecture theatres, to create a continuous lighting effect across each step.
The step lighting provides a non-intrusive lighting effect to define the edge of each step and helps students and staff to safely navigate the lecture theatres in reduced light conditions.
The LED lighting was used with hardwearing aluminium stair edging profiles, to provide a durable solution.
By utilising LED technology, the systems offer an extra low voltage alternative to mains voltage lighting and are easy to install.
Emmanuel Nibo, Architectural Assistant for Queen Mary University, London, said: “Our lecture theatres are fully equipped with top of the range audiovisual facilities, so it made sense that we worked with a lighting company who could supply high quality products that met our specification needs and created a safe and attractive teaching environment.”
Steve Gallagher of Gradus, added: “Lighting not only creates a safe environment but it also contributes towards the overall atmosphere. The refurbished theatres at Queen Mary serve as a perfect example of how lighting can instantly bring new life to an auditiorium.”
Gradus is the leading UK manufacturer of LED lighting products, combining safety with aesthetics, for use in lecture theatres, cinemas, nightclubs, casinos and cruise liners. Gradus also provides a full project management service, site installation, maintenance and after care.
