Rail Lighting Solutions

Minimal energy and maintenance costs while ensuring safety and comfort.

Every train journey begins and ends in a station. The impression that railway stations leave on a traveller impacts their view of the whole rail network. Train stations also act as gateways to a new area. They are often the first experience that a traveller gets of a village, town, or city. Today, railway stations operate around the clock and a modernisation programme is making railway stations fit for the 21st century, improving the passenger environment and looking to use cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to enable travellers to begin and complete their journeys.

Station forecourt

The journey begins at the station forecourt, therefore the area needs to be inviting and easily accessible.  Lighting will help to not only create an inviting atmosphere but also the sense of security. 

Using lighting to create comfortable ambient light also creates attractive environments, while state-of-the-art surveillance cameras, with digital zoom or fully motorised control, keep an eye on people and their valuables such as bicycles, deterring the unwary and providing a sense of security.

Car parks are an essential part of train station infrastructure for commuters and other train users. As such, car parks need to be as safe as possible. According to authorities, any car park that is used during a period of darkness must be lit. Making sure you pick a luminaire that is easy to maintain, can be controlled and has a long lifetime is a must.
