Efficient parkade lighting for Centurion Mall
September 2017, Industrial Wireless
Magnet Energy has assisted many leading property groups in South Africa with the design and installation of lighting systems for shopping malls, offices, hotels and industrial applications. The company’s latest project was the design and installation of a new lighting system at the Centurion Mall parkade in Pretoria. Advanced lighting technology has significantly improved light levels, enhanced safety and contributed to energy savings.
“The project brief from property group, Redefine, was to improve the quality of parkade lighting at the Centurion Mall. With extensive experience in turnkey lighting projects, the Magnet team understands that every installation is unique and requires individualised engineering solutions,” says divisional head, Dean Lotter. “Lighting solutions for parkades are traditionally complex projects, where most installation work needs to be done outside of normal business hours when the parking area has been vacated.”
The Centurion Mall parkade upgrade project, which encompassed an onsite lighting audit, engineering and lighting design, specification of technology, installation and commissioning, shows an improvement in light levels in the parkade, from 12 to 50 lux. Magnet’s eco-friendly solutions to reduce wasted electricity and improve lighting quality at the parkade include the installation of Philips and MARS LED fittings, as well as Lite-C controllers and Schneider sensors.
One feature of this project is the installation of Magnet’s Lite-C wireless binary controllers in specific areas of the parkade which are not highly occupied. Advanced radio frequency technology allows input devices to communicate with and control output devices up to 200 metres, without the need for cabling. If no movement is detected by the sensor after a certain time period, the lights are automatically switched off.
