Clear Channel UK has launched its first solar-powered advertising bus shelter situated on Waterloo Bridge in London using a specially manufactured solar LED lighting kit from Zeta Specialist Lighting.
Four solar panels have been installed onto Transport for London’s bus stop, converting sunlight into battery power and enabling Clear Channel to illuminate the courtesy light and advertising panel when it is dark using renewable energy. The solar-powered bus shelter is equipped with an energy management system that knows how much power it has generatedand automaticallydims the lights if power is running low, or during the hours of daylight,in order to conserve energy.
Zeta Specialist Lighting has also recently worked with IS Group, a leading UK sign manufacturer specialising in customised signage solutions on two projects – Liverpool ONE, the city’s premier destination for shopping and The Pier Head on the Liverpool Waterfront.
At the Pier Head, the ability to illuminate the signs required to extend the wayfinding system from the neighbouring Albert Dock further along the waterfront, was a key criteria; however the cost and time associated with laying the cabling required for traditional lighting was prohibitive, with a bill that would have run into a six figure sum. Fortunately, since Zeta designs and manufactures in-house, its had the ability to offer a flexible bespoke solution provided IS Group with a budget friendly, but highly effective and energy saving solution.
Zeta Specialist Lighting’s Bespoke Solar Signage Kit, which can be used to illuminate all types of outdoor totems and monoliths, was confirmed the overall winner of the Sign Product of the Year category at the British Sign Awards 2014 and also received a special commendation in the Exterior Luminaire of the Year category at the 2014 Lux Awards.
