Award Entry

Plaza is a new, incredibly innovative family of IP66 surface mount LED architectural, fully dimmable uplight luminaires 

Available in three formats; Plaza 10, Plaza 20 and Plaza 35, the form of this luminaire range is clean and simple, yet the lighting performance it offers is outstanding; with Plaza 20 and 35 offering lumen packages equivalent to 20 and 35 Watt metal halide respectively and Plaza 10 providing an equivalent lumen package to 35 Watt tungsten halogen, all previously inconceivable in an LED lighting product.

A broad range of ultra-efficient optics are available with a choice of 10°, 16°, 30°, 64° and 12° x 40° to provide ultimate design flexibility to establish dimmable layers of light and contrasts within a lighting scheme.

The ingenious design of the Plaza range not only ensures that the luminaire blends seamlessly into its surroundings and does not attract unnecessary attention, it also ensures that the thermal properties of the luminaire perform phenomenally well. Plaza's deep fins have been skilfully designed to bring cool air in, up and through the fitting to ensure the temperature stays as low as possible, enabling a long product lifetime of 50,000 hours to 70% lumen maintenance; approx 5 times that of their metal halide alternatives.

The luminaire is cool to touch with an ambient case temp of <50° in 25°, allowing it to be installed without concern even in locations where it may be accessible to the public and also allowing the luminaire to be focussed when on. The Plaza's wall arm bracket is lockable with angle increments for accurate onsite focussing with a tilt mechanism range up to 180°.

Dual stage thermal feedback protection ensures the luminaire continues to perform as designed, even if it is being controlled incorrectly resulting in it coming on during the day. This has been achieved by the two following features:

-LED temperature feedback loop with soft current derating (reduces power gradually)
-Driver over temperature protection

A broad choice of accessories are also provided as standard including cowl, snoot, barn doors, ground spike, protection grill, louvre, coloured glass filter and wall arm.

The Plaza range is approximately 25% lower in terms of circuit Watts in comparison with its' metal halide counterparts and the dimming functionality provides further energy savings and increases lamp life.
