AEC provided Autostrade per l’Italia with Q3 and Q5 PRO luminaires mounted on light towers.
One of the most relevant installations is the one along the A1 motorway, next to Bologna.
AEC installed the QPRO luminaires in one of the most traffic congested service areas along the highway.
Q3 and Q5 PRO were designed with a wide variety of optics and powers. This product range is particularly suitable for all the applications requiring an impeccable design and a high lighting performance.
Both versions features definite lines and are a flat square shape.
Traffic is one of the big issues for many cities today. It can really make it difficult for pedestrians to safely cross streets and high-traffic areas.
One of the key issues for AEC is to make streets safer not only for drivers but for pedestrians too. Any City includes goals for citizen safety.
Parma is in the centre of Italy, and is a good example of a city that chose AEC safety series luminaires: an efficient, safe and convenient solution. The system is composed by a column with a crossing signal and a Q QUADRO luminaire. The aim of the project was to give the area a high performing lighting close to pedestrian crossings.
AEC installed the safety series in an important shopping area where hundreds for Q QUADRO luminaires had already been mounted.
Considering the high number of pedestrians and vehicles passing by the entrance and exit area of the shopping district, the use of an appropriate lighting system close to pedestrian crossings has been a winning choice. The installation guarantees citizens a safer passage through the entire area.
AEC lit up many areas of Ravenna, which is one of the most key cities in the Romagna region along the Adriatic coast.
The Municipality has started a project of renovation of all the public lighting. In three years more than 8500 luminaires will be replaced with brand new LED fixtures.
Many important projects have already been developed in the area. Many streets, in fact, have already a LED lighting system installed.
One of the most important installations is the one with Babel, a high power LED light tower designed for the lighting of roundabouts, parking and wide areas.
Babel is featured by a triangular section tower composed of two 15 m high masts. The LED modules are replaceable and integrated in the frame.
The IP 66 protection degree of the optical unit is guaranteed.
This light tower was installed in a roundabout at the end of Via Trieste and Via Attilio Monti, at the very beginning of an important industrial park area.
Via Trieste is a crucial road leading to the seaside, the harbor and many touristic beaches.The Municipality considered the safety of this area of utmost urgency for Ravenna. Thanks to this innovative light tower, AEC completely fulfilled the installation requirements.
The river Nera Valley crosses the two Italian Regions of Marche and Umbria, from the Sibillini mountains to the city of Terni.
The new bridge is part of the national route S.S. 675 between Terni and Rieti, a few miles away from the famous Marmore waterfalls.
The bridge is a major work for the new geometric configuration of the architectural structure and for the high value of the engineering solutions.
The bridge is 300 metres long and 70 metres high with a supporting structure made of arch-shaped steel tubes with a diameter of 2,2 metres. AEC lighting designers wanted to highlight the structure of the Arch Bridge and the street board all along its length. The luminaires chosen respected this idea and were positioned to make the installation of the fittings easier for themselves.
The project includes a mixed system of discharge and LED luminaires, in both cases the choice of an appropriate optic was crucial to highlight the structures without creating a uniform and flat effect.
The discharge luminaires with spot optics were installed at the base of the arch structure in order to benefit from the cylindrical shape and to better manage the light beam.
In addition to the supporting structures AEC has highlighted the outer edge of the road surface through the installation of the LED floodlights XMOD PRO mounted on a plate along the bridge border.
Following the floodlights used for the project:
- N.6 floodlights Q5 PRO SPOT HQI-T D 250W 5200K;
- N.4 floodlights Q5 PRO SPOT HQI-BT D 400W 5900K.
- N.60 XMOD ST 4-2-18, 18 LED 2400lm 30W 4000K.
Lancing Boarding school is one of the most prestigious and well-known public schools in West Sussex, in the UK.
Lancing College is a co-educational English independent school in the British public school tradition, founded in 1848 by Nathaniel Woodard. Woodard’s aim was to provide education based on sound principle and sound knowledge, firmly grounded in the Christian faith.
The particular gothic school features an important architectural structure, in fact it attracts a lot of visitors from all over the world.
The college is situated on a hill which is part of the South Downs, and the campus dominates the local landscape.
