Lighting Source and Method

Shopping centres contain many areas and have different requirements for lighting effects, so the key to the right lighting must be appropriate for its purpose.

General Lighting

Passages, corridors and escalators are the main traffic areas that link the shops. The placement of fixtures such as LED Downlights or linear lights can give people a direction to follow. Also, the lighting design needs to be well balanced and flexible to suit seasonal needs and decoration changes that often occur.

Local Lighting

Wanting to create interest and highlight display areas? LED spotlights are perfect where natural and warm colours have the best light effects and are versatile where they can be aimed in different directions for changing flooring layouts.

Emergency Lighting

Meet safety regulations by installing dual powered LED emergency lights and exit signs in every passageway, corridor and hallway that lead to an exit.

On-Duty Lighting

Shopping centres rely on the operation of lighting during non-working hours for safety inspections and observations. For this reason, the placement and brightness of LED lighting must be carefully considered.

Perfect for providing instant visual impact to building facades, LED flood lights come with multiple beam angles and light distribution. With its higher lighting efficiency, they replace conventional halogen or metal halide flood lights.
