Friendly lighting…

Visitors to the Derbyshire Eco Centre are finding their way around with the help of Abacus Lighting’s new range of environmentally friendly LED Quartz bollards.
Set in fifty acres of Derbyshire Countryside, the new £1.4m eco-centre at Middleton-by-Wirksworth has been designed to promote sustainable living and the Abacus Quartz LED Bollard was chosen by the project’s main contractor, Wildgoose, because of its sustainability and ability to reduce running costs and promote efficiency. Its simple, aesthetic appearance also suits the building’s picturesque surroundings whilst LED technology is helping to reduce its carbon footprint by providing big energy savings.
The Centre, an official Site of Special Scientific Interest , uses solar panels for heating water, a grass roof and harvests rainwater for its toilets. Chris Anderson, Regional Account Manager at Abacus, said: “Our new LED Quartz bollard is one of the most energy-efficient amenity lighting systems of its kind so fits in perfectly with the ethos of the Centre. A traditional louvered bollard will emit typically 28% of the light it produces but our new bollard emits 90%. The LED technology also gives big energy savings, using 60% less wattage than conventional bollards, meaning lower energy bills for the Centre.”
