Wieland provides lighting platform for refurbishment of New Street station
The capabilities of Wieland’s Gesis pluggable lighting system made it the preferred choice for the regeneration of Birmingham’s busy New Street station, the busiest interchange station on Britain’s national rail network. Gesis 2-, 5- and 6-pole units with integrated DALI control feed lighting around the new concourse.
This regeneration project has resulted in a bigger and brighter concourse with much improved access to all platforms, including 36 new escalators and 15 lifts reaching every platform.
The Gesis range of components come pre-assembled and tested — so stripping, clamping and cutting to length are not required.
The range comprises connectors, radio-controlled switching devices, devices for remote building automation and pluggable distribution boxes for modern facility management, cables and busbars — as well as low-voltage systems.
