Heritage Lighting - Southsea Front

Keen to take advantage of reduced capital costs and the latest lighting technology, South Gloucestershire Council is in the process of an LED replacement programme.

The council had previously experimented with retrofitting LED trays. Unfortunately, the time and cost of converting existing units was found to be prohibitive.

Our Solution

The result of our close collaboration with South Gloucestershire Council was the development of the StreetCare lantern – a high performance lantern with traditional, regency heritage looks.

At an installation trial, the StreetCare outperformed three alternative conservation lanterns. It received a number of positive comments for its ease of installation and  build quality from installation operatives.

This successful trial has lead to StreetCare becoming the heritage lantern of choice in conservation areas across South Gloucestershire.

Manufactured in our Basingstoke facility, the StreetCare features a fully programmable driver allowing the dimming regime to exactly match the councils needs.
