Following a series of lighting upgrades and challenges with water ingress, Suffolk Highways launched a project to replace the existing SON Victorian-style heritage lanterns throughout Hamilton Gardens.
Positioned directly adjacent to the coastline the location is a fine representation of Edwardian and Victorian architecture. It also boasts views of colourful beach huts and four miles of picturesque sand and shingle beaches.
One of the key requirements of the project was to bring consistency to the colour temperatures, which were a mix-match due to previous replacements at different times.
With such close proximity to the sea, the chosen lanterns needed to withstand the demanding operating conditions and stand up to saltwater weathering.
Carl Lockwood, Street Lighting Engineer, Suffolk Highways, describes, “The scheme was to replace Victorian heritage lanterns at Hamilton Gardens, Felixstowe. As this installation is directly on the East Coast, it was imperative that the lanterns were of a high-quality build supported with a long warranty period.”
The Suffolk Highways team selected our 27W Muirfield lanterns to grace the coastline. Its traditional aesthetics blend perfectly with the surrounding architecture. The choice of 2700K LED colour temperature with our high performance Acrospire LED optic brings colour consistency in a style befitting of the location and delivered significant energy savings.
A RAL9005 black finished ed cast frog bracket prevents excess water ingress, rectifying previous issues.
Muirfield has been 1000-hour salt-spray tested, ensuring it is robust enough to guarantee performance in this seafront location. Furthermore, a DALI-enabled driver ensures compatibility with Suffolk County Council’s CMS system.

The idea for Acrospire was formed in 2012 when founder Tim envisioned a different kind of lighting manufacturer: one that would not only deliver outstanding customer experiences but also prioritise fair treatment for its employees.
We’ve come a long way
Motivated by the belief the industry wanted and needed better, Tim shared his plan to establish his own venture with Hatty, who simply couldn't let him do it alone.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Protecting local jobs and ensuring the best quality possible.
Working from a rented office by day and assembling lanterns in a garage at night, Tim and Hatty set to work.
