Al Aujan Warehouses Wanted “British engineering and Innovation”

“I wanted to break the mould and show that a well-manufactured product, with the rich history of British engineering and innovation, would prove that LED technology has a place in the harshest of environments” Mr Neelakanta - CEO of Delta Construction Back in early 2014, Pulsar was invited to bid for a multi-functional warehouse project in Hidd - a largely industrial area on the north east coast of Bahrain. A warehouse in this location, being beside the sea, has several challenges, ranging from high winds and extremely dusty/sandy/salt air conditions, to external temperatures regularly exceed 45 degrees. The client - Al Aujan Group - were building a collection of warehouse units, and the civil, mechanical and electrical works were awarded to Delta Construction. Initial designs by a local consultant were based on using a 400W metal halide solution. Pulsar’s 130W Unibay was selected after a very detailed technical evaluation including testing on site. The UniBay was

Everyone’s a Winner

Pulsar held an open evening for Cambridge Architects and Lighting Designers. The evening consisted of a short presentation followed by a Architectural lighting demonstration. Architects and Designers from Cambridge had the opportunity of meeting members of Pulsar’s team, ranging from Technicians to Engineers, with the opportunity to interact with various product lines, including the Latest Luxeos Range. At the end of an informal yet entertaining evening, Pulsar gave all who attended a chance to win an iPad. The lucky candidate was Jon Capper. Jon Said "Thanks to Pulsar for interesting evening about their latest product releases and the services they can offer to support them, I'd really recommend getting along to their next event" Pulsar would like to say a big Thank you to Ambersphere for the loan of the Mythos, enabling us to demonstrate advanced architectural control integration, and thanks to all that attended, it was a great evening to be involved in.

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.

LED Hangar Lights Cake

Free Lights at Diamond Hangar

In Jan 2015, Pulsar worked with Diamond Hangar, Stansted to reduce running costs and also improve light levels throughout their hangar. Diamond Hangar requires high light levels every day, all year round. The lighting structure in place was High Pressure Sodium fittings burning for 3,640 hours per year. With this came huge energy consumption, generating an annual bill in excess of £75,000 for lighting alone. Pulsar’s solution replaced the original 384 HPS units with just 96 x 260W Pulsar Eco Range fixtures. This improved the lux levels at ground level by 2.9x and gave an 85% reduction on their energy bills. This saves Diamond Hangar £64,754 in energy costs every year. Diamond Hangar started getting a return on their new Pulsar LED High Bay Lights immediately. Now, after just 16 months, Pulsar’s high efficiency LED lights have paid for themselves. Or to put it differently, Diamond Hangar’s lights are now free for the next 10-20 years of their life. That’s a lot of

Kirkstall Bridge Clock Tower – Making Light of Time.

The clock tower at the heart of the development is created as a response to the industrial history of the area. The screen-printed glass cladding features images of industrial artefacts and processes specific to Kirkstall. Each visual component of the clock mechanism is created from photographs of surrounding industrial elements: the pendulum – a forge-made vehicle axle, the clock face – the original Thrift Stores clock. The clock tower itself is wrapped in an image of a woollen spool, reflecting the blanket making and textile fulling activities carried out nearby. JPLD were appointed by the Artist and creator of the tower, Kirsty Brooks, to develop a subtle lighting scheme which emphasized the elements described in the narrative while helping to establish the piece against a visually busy backdrop. The clock face lighting is tuned to the daylight ambient level to ensure it is “comfortable” to view regardless of the time of day. In appreciation of the industrious energy

Bowman Shoots for UniBay

Bowman Chilled Stores in Spalding is a family run business which has been established for over 50 years. Over the years Mr & Mrs Bowman had a strong influence in large scale horticulture ranging from daffodils and vegetables to cereals. Mr Bowman decided to stop production and to convert existing buildings to refrigerated storage. This included the licence to store meat, fish and dairy produce. He decided to refurbish to industry leading standards to provide excellent services to his customers. The short lifespan of the existing 100 Metal Halide fittings were costing £1.200 a year to maintain and led to reduced light levels and production stoppages when light servicing and replacement were taking place. Pulsar’s maintenance free LED lighting upgrade eradicated all of these issues and their associated costs. After visiting the site and preparing extensive light calculations, Pulsar Light created a scheme with the UniBay130 that dramatically reduced the running cost of the

Flying Scotsman rests with Luxeos

The Challenge Pulsar was presented with the pleasant challenge of illuminating the Flying Scotsman to create a dramatic and atmospheric effect on its return to The National Railway Museum. The bill was to be ensure "bright and of ultra high quality for photography, as well as being unobtrusive". The task was made increasingly difficult as the lighting had to be set up and packed away each evening with only a 30 minute window to do so. Choice of light The solution needed a large amount of light in the right place to be successful. Any large object, such as the Flying Scotsman in its painted livery, effectively absorbs light. i.e. light reflects and bounces all over the place, reducing the impact of what you (and your eye see). The fixtures used needed to by substantial enough to withstand knocks, bangs, kicks and moving in and out each night. With all this in mind, fixtures also must be 100% reliable and configured to operate in exactly the same way each time it was
