PROJECT SHOWCASE

Antique Street Lighting & Fairways Development at Plantations Tobago

The Project - Antique Street Lighting & Fairways Development at Plantations Tobago

Fairways at Plantation is located on the Tobago Plantations Estate on the Windward Side of Tobago. It is a small upscale development comprised of 10 duplex units. The units are setback approximately half a mile from the coast and bounded by the Golf Course on one side, hence the name, and by woodland on the other three. Even though Fairways at Plantation is geographically protected from the corrosive conditions experienced at other developments on the Estate; the Project Managers brief from the HMB was to only use materials that will withstand the severe conditions experienced on Tobago’s Windward coast.

 

The Brief

We were requested to specify a product that takes the following into consideration
  • sufficient illumination to the roadway
  • energy efficiency
  • low maintenance
  • corrosion resistant
  • Architecturally relevant

The Product

Antique Street Lighting – EM25RT 250M GCF SR2 TB4 ANBK

The luminaire is equipped with anodized segmented reflectors for superior light uniformity and control. The electrical system is Pulse Start metal halide as opposed to the standard in Trinidad, the less efficient Probe Start. Please visit this link for the benefits of Pulse Start Metal Halide vs Probe Start Metal Halide.

http://o.b5z.net/i/u/10069179/f/Metal_Halide___Pulse_Start_vs._Probe_Start.pdf The lamp is a Pulse Start 250W Horizontal burn with 15,000hrs life, as compared to the standard in Trinidad, Probe Start Universal burn with 6,500 to 8,000 hrs life.

 

Most important amongst the specification guidelines was the luminaire’s ability to withstand the corrosive conditions on Tobago’s West coast. The luminaire, mounting arm and pole are all cast aluminum coated with Antique Street Lighting’s premium powder coating. All fastening hardware is stainless steel.

They say “a picture says a thousand words”. In the foreground of the following picture is an Antique Street Lighting hexagonal luminaire we supplied to original developer of Tobago Plantations. Although it looks a bit weathered, it works and there are no visible signs of corrosion after 11 years!!!!

In the background is the Antique Street Lighting contemporary luminaire described above. I wonder how long this one will last????

 

Quick Tip

Antique Street Lighting has a ten day Rapid-Ship Programme. Just remember to include the letters “RSP” at the end of your next specification. The extensive range of contemporary and historical fixtures, poles and mounting arms can be viewed at www.antiquestreetlamps.com

Hope you found this interesting and please call with any Comments or questions.
