Transport infrastructure consists of many elements - large and small, each of which is extremely important. Car and pedestrian tunnels are designed to partially relieve the load on overhead communications and provide people with comfortable movement in difficult areas, and high-quality tunnel lighting - a guarantee of safe stay in such places for all road users.
Underpasses are objects of increased danger, so the lighting for them must meet all the technical requirements of regulatory documents. Good light in such places is a guarantee of well-being and health of pedestrians.
To maintain safety, the underpass must be equipped with special lighting. The ideal option is LED light sources. LED lamps will provide all the necessary lighting conditions: the appropriate brightness, the right angle of light, and so on. Such lamps are equipped with a strong case that will protect them from possible vandalism.
Due to the location of such lamps - underground, in places with high humidity - another of their predominant properties - moisture protection. In order to extend the service life of LED lamps, special shielding gaskets or nylon washers are installed between the vault and the mounting bracket, which reduce the risk of electrochemical corrosion. Mounting brackets are made of stainless steel and have the ability to adjust the angle of the lamp in the range up to 30 ° or up to 60 °.
In underground pedestrian crossings, it is recommended to maintain a constant high light, both horizontal and vertical. LED lamps are also ideal here, as they are low energy and can serve as continuous light sources, used around the clock.
Advantages of using LED lighting in underground passages:
- Save energy consumption. One lamp with a power of 100 watts illuminates the way as an analog device with a power of 200-500 watts.
- Provide safe operation. The current that falls on the LED is immediately converted into light rays. This reduces the probability of overheating or explosion of the lamp to almost zero.
- Resistant to changes in humidity and temperature. LED lighting in the underpass copes equally well, both at +50° C and at -40 °C.
- Long service life.
- Do not require additional maintenance.
The Vatra company offers services of designing of modern LED lighting of underground passages. Our specialists will develop an appropriate project, minimizing the need for maintenance and reducing energy costs.
Our arsenal includes a full range of industrial LED luminaires that are suitable for lighting tunnels of any type, regardless of their location. Emergency, evacuation lighting is available.
