Outdoor lighting solutionsFreedom to move
Darkness covers our corner of the world for much of the year. We can help you design outdoor lighting solutions that contribute to safer and more attractive outdoor environments.
The value of proper lighting:
Functionality and freedom
Well-planned lighting solutions create functional and user-friendly outdoor areas, 24 hours a day, all year round. By expanding the time and spaces where we are free to move, the right lighting gives us more freedom than ever before.
Safety and well-being
The right light provides a feeling of security and more spaces for socializing and physical activity. In the dark half of the year, outdoor lighting is especially important for promoting well-being and for connecting areas where people meet.
Echonomy and the environment
Lifetime economy and environmental concerns are central aspects of any modern lighting solution. Efficient, high-quality fittings, intelligent control solutions, proper planning, and a continuous focus on circular economy and the reduction of waste are all important priorities in any project.
Streets and roads
Correct street and road lighting must provide a safe environment. Even light provides visibility at a distance and helps drivers monitor existing conditions, surroundings, signs and road markings.
In residential areas, the right lighting solution must also limit light pollution as much as possible. Automatic night reduction and other control options can be good solutions in many places. Most roads have limited traffic at night, and control solutions ensure that only the required amount of light is used at any given time.
Tunnel lighting must ensure maximum road safety in difficult conditions. Tunnel fittings must be able to withstand a harsh environment, often with high levels of dust, salt, and moisture. They must also be maintenance-free to prevent costly closings.
While the lights within tunnels often are relatively low, the amount of light in the entrance area must be high enough to allow the eyes of every driver to adapt to the altered conditions.
The right lighting in parking lots should provide people with a sense of security and make the area easy to navigate. Accurate color rendering makes it easier to find one’s own car at night and properly highlighted entrance, exit, and meter zones make the area more user-friendly. The right level of light also reduces the risk of burglaries and vandalism.
Entrances and facades
Facade and entrance area lighting plays an important role in forming the building’s visual expression.
Functionally, the light should create a safe and welcoming environment, and help visitors transition from outdoor to indoor light conditions. Highlighting the entrance area also helps people navigate, and makes it possible for those inside to see those on the outside.
Lighting in parks and recreational areas should create a safe and relaxing atmosphere. Lighting in these areas can also be used constructively to shape how different spaces look and are used at night. The right amount of light ensures that pedestrians can see their surroundings and other users at a distance. Highlighting important features makes the area easier to navigate.
Lighting in urban environments must be planned according to the function and needs of each space. In places with significant road traffic, visibility and visual comfort are paramount. Shielding is important in all areas to prevent glare. In spaces where people meet and socialize, it is important that faces are sufficiently illuminated.
Lit trails and skiing facilities
Lighting requirements within these types of facilities differ depending on their use. Trails for recreational use should have even, comfortable light throughout. Propper shielding is important to prevent glare.
Facilities used for competitions have higher requirements, especially in stadiums.
