OPTICS PROVIDE GATEWAY TO SUCCESSFUL ILLUMINATION

Sill Lighting has been specified to uplight the dramatic canopy of the Manchester Gateway metrolink station.

Lighting designers Light Bureau were appointed to create a high quality lighting design that gave the canopy the illusion of a floating structure, specifying Sill Lighting for its ability to provide homogenous illumination of the canopy to achieve this effect.

The lighting scheme used 18 Sill 401 plane projectors with 250w lamps, ten Sill 408 plane projectors with 150w lamps, and three Sill 495 high power narrow beam projectors with 400w lamps, mounted on columns of varying heights to light the circular, angled roof as evenly as possible. The projectors, fitted with pure aluminium reflectors, offer high efficiency and controlled light direction.

Commenting on the project, Paul Nulty, Director of Light Bureau said, “Sill Lighting was specified for its high quality optics and excellent service and support. Sill not only provided high quality luminaires for the project but also offered expertise in developing the columns and bracket arms to support the projectors. The final result, achieved through Sill’s expert lighting calculations, means that the evenly lit structure exhibits the desired floating effect.”

Architects Aukett Fitzroy Robinson designed the gateway as an iconic marker of the transport interchange, and the roof shape is the focal point of entry into this regeneration area on a brownfield site in North East Manchester. David Exeter, Director of Transport at Aukett Fitzroy Robinson explained, “Lighting was key to the project because for a lot of the time the station is used in darkness. The blades of the roof structure also reflect light so creating a beacon in the landscape.”

Sill’s projectors with integral control gear and cooling fins highlight technological design and have a proven long lifespan. The hinged safety glass on the plane projectors can be opened without tools, simplifying maintenance procedures.
