With lighting being the source of energy for hospitality’s creativity, Franklite’s range of products allows designers to further light up personality in public areas. Editor Hamish Kilburn was given a detailed look at what’s new…
It goes without saying that lighting can drastically enhance the architecture of any space. Public areas such as arrival experiences, lobbies or even corridors are the spaces people interact with first. Therefore, making sure these areas are lit correctly is integral in order to set the right scene for the rest of guests’ journeys. Good architectural design together with functional, decorative lighting in spaces like these create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.
Franklite offers integrated emergency lighting on a range of interior and exterior fittings specifically designed for public areas. These reserve battery operated emergency lights are on a separate circuit within the fitting and will last for at least three hours once engaged.
The traditionally styled lanterns of the Atrio range, finished in chrome with bevelled tapered glass panels are the perfect examples of decorative fittings designed with the emergency gear. Available in various finishes these lanterns will complement any architectural design.
The Woburn is another popular range used in public areas. With dedicated LED decorative shades which all come with top and bottom diffusers to ensure an even distribution of light and low maintenance, are available in a wide variety of sizes, colours and suspensions.
With an extensive range of flush ceiling fittings in both modern and more traditional designs, Franklite truly has a fitting suitable for any public area. These ranges can be also be supplied in various sizes, shapes, finishes and fabric shades.
Dimmability and integral lighting control options can also be included with many of the ranges mentioned improving the efficiency and longevity of the fittings. To ensure optimum efficiency it is recommended that the reserve batteries be changed every two to three years.
