Castell Coch, Wales

Located near Cardiff, the heritage of Castell Coch dates back to the Norman conquest of Wales. Whilst the first castle at the site was built in the 11th century as a Norman fortress to defend Cardiff, the current castle was constructed in the 1800’s. Featuring a gothic revival exterior with high Victorian interiors, no expense was spared, and the castle has been described as ‘one of the great triumphs of Victorian architectural composition.’ The castle is now in the care of Cadw, the historic environment service of the Welsh government. The site is open daily to the general public; Cadw’s conservation efforts, installations of touch screens and multi-sensory technology ensure that it a compelling and inclusive place for all visitors. The castle also hosts art exhibitions and other events. Lighting for Effect and Conservation Six of Pulsar’s flagship Luxeos 36 VC floodlights illuminate the gothic-revival facade.

Aperia Mall, Singapore

Pulsar's installation of architectural lighting in singapore is situated at Aperia: a new mixed-use development which is located within the Kallang-Lavender area of Singapore. The site consists of a business office tower, supermarket, leisure facilities, a shopping mall and a wide range of food outlets. The shopping and food courts are located around a central 3 - storey atrium that serves as a centrepiece to the space.

Pulsar Highly Commended at Lux Awards

Lux Awards Intercontinental Hotel – O2 Arena – London   On the 16th November, we attended the Lux Awards at the stunning Intercontinental hotel, at the O2 Arena, London. Having been nominated for our work at Elgin Bridge in Scotland, we are honoured to have been ‘highly commended’ by the panel of judges at this year’s Lux Awards. The awards ceremony brought together lighting designers, manufacturers and intermediaries from across the UK, celebrating the best products and projects from across the United Kingdom. With the bridge having been a target of vandalism, Pulsar worked with the local authorities and installers to make the installation at Elgin Bridge a success. Key to the success was the recycling of damaged luminaires and repainted vandalised housings, using extra tough materials. This made the project a perfect fit for the ‘recycling’ category of the Lux Awards. Click here to read more about the project. We were bowled over by the sheer

Campaign for Fair Warranties: The fight continues

Campaign for Fair Warranties: Pulsar's M.D. reading our - No Nonsense Warranty! at Lux Live 2016. In the special panel discussion, manufacturers, customers and the team from Lux’s Campaign for Fair Warranties to assess the state of customer protection in the lighting industry. Speaker(s): Brian Pohl of Pulsar Light, David Mooney of Atkins, Gordon Routledge of Lux, Mark O'Connor of Saturn LED, Michael Schrempp of Munich RE LED manufacturers sometimes make bold lifespan claims about their products and the reliability of these claims often rests on the quality of the luminaire. Warranties should protect consumers from poor product performance, but in the lighting industry warranties are not always fair and can be misleading. In some cases warranties dramatically overstate the likely lifespan of their products. A ten-year warranty, for example, does not take into account the complications of long-term LED operation and wouldn’t be offered by a reliable company. Sometimes

4 Signs that it’s time to change your lights!

How many times have you seen a building with failed lights on the outside, or mismatching colours? Chances are that when the lights were first installed, it looked fantastic, but it’s probably long overdue a refit. In this article, we’ll look at 4 different ways to tell that a lighting installation needs updating. Failures Sooner or later, all luminaires will fail. Sometimes, depending on the installation, it won’t be that noticeable if a few fixtures have failed, but often there will be gaps in the lighting scheme or details that are not illuminated. Even worse, with colour mixing LED fixtures, a single channel can fail which means that the luminaire will be on the wrong colour- imagine a situation where red and green channels are being mixed to create amber, but the red channel has failed on one fixture so one of the lights is green instead. Light Output Dropping Over time, all types of lights drop in output; the lifetime of LED fixtures is usually measured to

Pulsar Highlights Natural Stone Campus

Pulsar recently added to it’s ever-growing list of Middle East projects with completion of Phases 1 & 2 at the Royal University for Women in Bahrain. A female-only university, the university stands proud in the wealthy Awali district (which is also home to the royal palace and many of Bahrain’s elite). A very select student population consists of members of the royal family, and daughters of diplomats and government officials from Bahrain, and across the GCC, who come to study Fashion, Art and Business amongst many other disciplines. The initial degree programmes of the university were designed in collaboration with McGill University in Canada and Middlesex University in the United Kingdom. After testing on-site with various products, colours and beam angles, Pulsar’s EcoFlood 60 was selected by the University - both for high quality and durability of the fixtures, and their proven ability to survive in the searing heat, high humidity & marine-like conditions.
