LEDwise has supplied their COB35 downlight through distributor Lighting Innovations, for the main mall lighting in Umlazi Megacity which is situated in the south of Durban.
In total more than 500 downlights were installed throughout the mall area. In order to achieve a wider distribution angle the fittings were supplied with a Bright View diffuser to create a diffused rather than focussed lighting effect. This effect was favoured to create a wider beam angle from the luminaire which increases uniformity. Considering lighting in a mall area requires consideration of the shopper experience. Lighting should be natural, comfortable and not distract from the stores.
The COB35 is a 35W recessed LED ceiling light, with a Bridgelux chip on board (COB) LED and Tridonic control gear. It is available in 18 different LED colours and multiple beam angles.
