MATERIALS

HLB contacted Spectrum Lighting to design a high-bay luminaire with a specific output and distribution, delivering specified foot-candles, as part of the project. Consequently, Spectrum Lighting created a custom three-fixture mounting bar to hold the three high-bay-type luminaires. The company also designed a special 60-degree beam downlight series used throughout the space. All fixtures supplied were required to utilize the same LEDs and drivers for ease of long-term maintenance by the airport.

Spectrum Lighting’s sales and engineering teams worked in coordination with the lighting design team and architects to design and produce a fixture to meet exact specifications. Optical reflector design for high bays and downlights were done in-house, and the fixtures were tooled, spun and manufactured by Spectrum Lighting’s skilled designers and craftsmen. The custom three-fixture mounting bar also was designed and manufactured in-house.

The electrical contractor worked out installation details with the design team at Spectrum Lighting’s Massachusetts factory. Changes made to the mounting system during this meeting allowed the contractors to pre-assemble fixtures in their shop and ship to the site ready to install.
