Luceco on the crest of “The Wave” in Coventry
At the centre of this state-of-the-art water park are six slides complemented by light and sound features, a splash pad with water jets, a lazy river, a poolside café, fitness and Mana spa suites and wave pool.
Over 200 Platinum Mini Downlighters from Luceco lit spaces including changing areas and WC facilities, locker rooms, corridors and circulation areas. Climate Extra, a robust LED IP65 rated luminaire offering an efficacy of 140 Llm/cW with increased performance for improved energy efficiency, was installed in the plant rooms and also on “wet” staircases including the staircases providing access to the attractions in the water park.
