Ballakermeen High School is the largest high school on the Isle of Man. When Luminaires were approached to propose a new lighting scheme for the Studio Entrance, it was clear that something a little different was required.
The lighting scheme had to be multi-purpose.
During the day the school required a brightly lit, aesthetically pleasing environment but needed the flexibility to provide more subdued lighting should the areas be used for private functions.
Luminaires, the Island’s experts in lighting design and lighting control systems, first specified a state-of-the-art lighting control system allowing the school complete freedom to control the look of their lighting installation.
Through a combination of continuous-run, dimmable-fluorescent lighting and DMX controlled colour-changing LED lighting the striking effects as shown above were easily achieved.
The control system provides the school with the flexibility to have complete control of the lighting should they require it or to let the automated system provide the right lighting at the right time.
