Ballina Ridge Pool Bridge
In association with Ryan Hanley Consultant Engineers fibreLED specified, fabricated and supplied a bespoke LED luminaire for the Ballina Ridge Pool pedestrian bridge in Ballina, Co Mayo, Ireland.
The custom luminaire was recessed in to the handrail and was required to provide a functional and consistent halo across the bridge walkway.
The design brief threw up a number of concerns, the fittings were not easily accessible post installation, there were issues such as potential vandalism and given the location weathering was a major concern. Coupled with that the fitting was required to reach a certain lux level, be anti-glare and due to its location product failure was not an option.
The fibreLED FLpod LED LUX was the LED used at the light source for this application. The FLpod LED LUX Strip system was recessed into a stainless steel box section housing complete with frosted polycarbonate face cover. A fret cut stainless steel cover plate covered the entire fitting leaving only the linear strip of light.
The FLpod LED LUX is a very reliable, extremely durable LED strip system. It has been used in countless diverse applications both interior and exterior. The system consumes approximately 5 watt per linear meter as compared to almost 9 times this for the traditional alternative. The light should last up to 50,000 hrs at 100% brightness and are durable to withstand the best our Irish winters can throw at them! For peace of mind when failure is not an option and access for maintenance is a concern it has proved itself time and time again.
As you can see from the images the affect on the bridge is glorious.
