Riegens shines at education

Riegens, lighting, control
Riegens lighting fittings with DALI-based controls are used throughout the new Holland Park School in west London

DALI-based lighting control throughout the new Holland Park School in west London ensures optimum lighting and energy performance in all the spaces. Products supplied include a number of bespoke designs.

For classrooms, special suspended rafts have been created, with recessed luminaires and sensors incorporated in 2200 x 900 x 103 mm sound-absorbing panels to meet the requirements of ‘Building bulletin 93: Acoustic design in schools’. Services built into in the one fixture include smoke and occupancy sensors, cameras and sprinklers.

Luminaires from the Infinity range have also been widely applied. Bespoke wall-mounted Infinity luminaires with two 28 W T5 fluorescent lamps are used in circulation areas. The double-height ground-floor dining area uses suspended Infinity fixtures with two 35 W lamps. Recessed Infinity fittings with a single 28 W lamp have been installed in the ground-floor entrance hall. Many other areas use the Tarue range of luminaires, which have high-performance diffusers with a back reflector.

Other Riegens luminaires for this project include GEO-REC in the assembly hall, Corex Sport in the sports hall and Concido in several spaces — including staff areas and changing rooms.
