Marl International is looking to help customers waste less light with a new Lighting Scheme Design service that has been developed to provide specific recommendations on the best energy efficient LED lighting to use inside and outside buildings, car parks or industrial sites. The service is being launched at the LuxLive exhibition in Earls Court, London, next month.
Marl can accept a CAD drawing of the internal or external area to be lit, or a simple dimensional drawing, and can use 3D modelling software to choose the most suitable energy efficient LED lighting products, and place them to achieve the desired effect. In consequence, the right light level is available in each location, but the minimum of light leaks upwards or sideways into areas where it isn’t needed. Marl will then implement the scheme using standard or custom products that it manufactures based on leading edge LED lighting technology.
According to Adrian Rawlinson, Managing Director of Marl International, “Lighting can make or break the appearance of a building – making it welcoming, attractive and safe or conversely, threatening, unattractive and hazardous. LED lighting is energy efficient and highly directional – minimising the issue of wasted light. We have exact models of the light output of the products that we supply. Using the design tools we have, we can combine our models with customers’ designs and statements of requirements to come up with a lighting scheme that produces the best effect for the least energy and installation cost.”
Marl has successfully designed and implemented number of lighting schemes for a wide range of projects including, schools, offices, car parks, attractions and factories. The company’s lighting solutions are based on technologies from companies like Citizen, Lighting Science and Bivar, which it integrates into finished and ready to wire luminaires that can be driven from the UK mains and meet the UK electrical standards and specifications.
These products are designed, manufactured and tested under one roof at Marl’s manufacturing facility in Ulverston, England.
