Get ready for Quartz
Abacus Lighting is putting the finishing touches to its new range of high performance, security LED Quartz bollards which is set to revolutionise the street scene with its unique clear Louvre optics.
In recent years LEDs have advanced significantly to become one of the most efficient, attractive and versatile forms of lighting around. Abacus’ LED Quartz bollards are set to deliver crisp white light through clear moulded louvres, producing high performance lighting at each louvre edge giving functional, low glare illumination.
LEDs use far less electricity than most other light sources whilst producing a better quality of white light. Kelvin Austin, Abacus’ principal lighting engineer, said: “A traditional louvred bollard will emit typically 28% of the light it produces but our new Quartz bollard emits a superior 90%. We are proud to say that this makes it one of the most energy-efficient amenity lighting systems of its kind.”
The AL9000 bollard’s patented clear louvred optics give instantaneous, bright white light in a variety of energy efficient beam patterns. In addition to a symmetrical beam, an axial beam is offered to provide forward and sideways throw for path lighting.
