Car Plant Oxford
Cowley, United Kingdom
The access bridge at this car assembly plant in Oxford has been illuminated using a combination of black Zipline, Pitch spotlights and Traditional pendant luminaires. The new lighting installation creates a more visually interesting space while highlighting the wall mounted images.
The Traditional is part of the Thorlux heritage pendant range which combines traditional hand-spinning with energy efficient LED technology to produce a high-quality product worthy of its history. The reflector for every pendant is spun from mild steel using the original machines and tooling and is finished in original-colour vitreous enamel for a long-lasting high gloss finish. LED lamps complement the longevity of the product and offer significant energy savings compared to the original lamp types.
The existing Thoroproof luminaires, installed several years ago, are to be reused in a separate area of the plant, in line with the company's circularity goals. The use of LED luminaires also has a significant carbon reduction benefit for the plant operators. All Thorlux luminaires are manufactured in the Midlands in a carbon-offset plant.
