The City of Polokwane wanted to install a lighting solution at the busy Spar and Pick ‘n Pay taxi ranks, to increase safety for its commuters at night. Furthermore, this lighting installation had to continue operating during power outages.
General area lighting
The BEKA SOLAR was chosen as the most suitable lighting solution for the taxi ranks. This locally designed and manufactured LED streetlight for outdoor residential and public applications offers a full customisable option to suit all off-grid solar lighting requirements. It has been designed to operate reliably with a high light output over a 12-to-14-hour period, and to be theft and vandal resistant. It is also sufficiently autonomous to cater for up to four continuous overcast or rainy days, to continue its reliable night operation.
The solution, combined with the ZIYA luminaire, provides a reliable lighting solution with a high Ingress Protection (IP) level which withstands high ambient temperatures and vandalism. These luminaires are a sustainable off-grid performer with a superior lumen-to-watt ratio. Various battery technologies are available to meet specific customer requirements. The solution offers a renewable lighting solution to operate in challenging African environmental conditions.
Parking bay under-canopy lighting
The company’s Roughguard LED has been installed underneath the parking bay canopies for general area lighting and is available in two sizes for applications flexibility. With applications like police stations and prison cells, railway stations, underground parking areas, mining workshops and others, where vandalism and corrosive elements are prevalent, the product has shown to be able to not only withstand these environments, but to also provide efficiently light exactly where it is needed.
Locally designed and manufactured BEKA SERIES 30 LED bulkheads were installed outside the ablution blocks to provide general area lighting. Due to its timeless and simple design, these fittings are the ideal solution to beautify buildings and to provide area lighting for commercial developments, retail areas, shopping malls and public buildings. High-quality materials are used to ensure a high IP and non-discolouring diffuser. This, together with the long lifetime of the LEDs, and an easy installation procedure, makes these the bulkhead of choice.
BEKA Schréder designs, develops and manufactures sustainable LED lighting products in South Africa for local conditions. The company says it is proud to be associated with Livit8 Eco Engineers and the City of Polokwane in providing a complete LED lighting solution for this project.
