Sports Village Sutton scores an ACE with Pulsar’s UniBay
The Sports Village - Sutton Tennis, like many sports, relies on carefully designed lighting to deliver the high illuminance levels required for standard and competitive play. Crucial to both the designer and the fixture manufacturer is minimising glare and shadow while also ensuring the court is as evenly lit as possible. The courts at Sutton Tennis were previously fitted with fluorescent tube totalling around 6480W per court of power consumed. Continuous play meant the Club was consuming over 262,080kWh total for a total of 9 courts. Pulsar Light was approached by the The Sports Village Sutton about the Eco-Range solutions, particularly the UniBay130 - a fixture designed by Pulsar Light in collaboration with England sports bodies and players. After visiting the site and preparing extensive light calculations with the UniBay130, Pulsar Light created a scheme that reduced the running cost of each court and provided an increase to the original light levels. The final
Genprise bank on Pulsar products for BiSB

mycoocoon – Immerse yourself in colour.
mycoocoon combines ancestral beliefs with the use of technology. Based on chromotherapy, a treatment that subscribes to the theory that each person is drawn to the colour that best balances energy levels and stimulates the senses. Today, it is scientifically proven that color can influence well-being. Light is a form of energy, composed of all the visible colors of the rainbow. Human beings associate colors with certain emotions, symbols and experiences, such as a verdant landscape, a blue sky, or an orange sunset. Mycoocoon attended COSMOPROF NORTH AMERICA – LAS VEGAS in July 2015 Las Vegas – Mandalay Bay Convention Center Cosmoprof North America is the only trade fair event in the USA which brings all the sectors of the beauty industry together under one roof: Packaging and Contract Manufacturing, Cosmetic and Personal Care products, Beauty and Spa, Hair and Nails.

Nothing has changed apart from the name – Agron-LED
Agri-LED to Agron-LED - nothing has changed.. We’re writing to let you know of a change to our name from Agri-LED to Agron-LED – which you may have seen in the trade press. The reason for this is our growth into non-agricultural industries and we wanted our name to accurately reflect the more general sectors with whom we are beginning to collaborate. Please be reassured that nothing else has changed about the company at all. Our mission is still to design and install state-of-the-art LED systems, making a real difference to environmental impact and significantly reducing energy bills. We are, however, evolving, and have recently designed lighting solutions for distilleries and the oil and gas industry as well as our regular farming and equestrian clients. A recent Agron-LED client has saved 71% on their annual electricity bill and reduced their carbon footprint by a massive 45 tonnes per year; a great example of how an initial LED investment can more than pay for
Take That – AR111’s shine through the rain!
Pulsar's ChromaAR111's went on tour with Take That. If readers look to the lighting plots online they will see in the instrument key the unexpected Pulsar AR111, a small, IP65-rated, flush-mount LED flood: “They’re for the cast,” Routledge explains. “Each of them has a box of props including an umbrella they use for The Flood, which is exactly where the Pulsar floodlights come in. They need to be IP rated because the rain effect falls directly onto them in the choir stalls.” The rain gag comes from Quantum Effects, with the little Pulsar units pointed up into the casts’ clear PVC umbrellas. I’m not sure what the cast think about it - umbrellas or not I’m sure they get wet - but it’s a tangible effect visible right to the back of the venue. “They have other uses, as an LED flood I’m able to pixel map light onto the faces of the cast, which I do in Affirmation, so even they become a texture to the stage.” Steve Moles writes in
Pulsar tailor make solution for Mirvac project
Pulsar tailor make solution for Mirvac project E-Lux Lighting Design & Consultancy were contracted by Mirvac to light the public areas of the 43-storey Era residential tower in Chatswood, Sydney. As well as providing lighting for the lobby areas, E-Lux reviewed the buildings’ exterior lighting. Rather than use a metal halide fixture, E-Lux decided to use an LED option in the form of the Pulsar ChromaInGround 50, an amazing high-power LED fixture housed in an IP67 enclosure. The ChromaInGround 50 has a 10mm toughened glass surface allowing it to be walked or driven over, making it particularly ideal for applications in demanding environments. “It’s quite a shallow fitting so it could fit into the existing concrete slab that had already been poured,” explained Bettina Easton, lighting designer at E-Lux. “Pulsar custom made the fixture so it was a 3000 Kelvin single colour (white) fixture rather than the standard RGB offering. The white is nice and warm, matching all of
Ridgeons saves 400 tonnes of carbon dioxide with UniBay
Following a lighting review of our 26 branches we are set to save over 400 tonnes of carbon dioxide – the equivalent to an average car driving for 652 days non-stop, each year – by simply swapping from traditional lights to LED lighting, making each store more environmentally friendly. Andrew Wilson, Group Safety & Environmental Manager, Ridgeons said: “Working with Pulsar Light of Cambridge, we decided to change our warehouse lighting to LED because they are more energy efficient, last longer, and overall cost much less to run.” The Cambridge branch on Nuffield Road was the first to benefit from the light change, which since implementation has seen energy usage reduce by a third. Andrew added: “While it is great that we have made cost savings from the light switch, the key driver for the update was the environmental benefits. We champion sustainability, therefore, monitoring and measuring our impact on the environment is key. By making this simple change we can
