  • Lamp efficacy

    Lamp efficacy

    Modern LED light sources in a modern but classical design provide excellent efficacy.

  • Ballast classification

    Ballast classification

    Controlling the electricity supply to the lamp (Energy Efficiency Index).

  • Luminaire distribution

    Luminaire distribution

    Controlling light emission using optics which bend and shape the light to the correct location.

  • System efficacy

    System efficacy

    Combining optical and thermal control within the luminaire (luminaire lm/W).

  • Presence/absence detection

    Presence/absence detection

    Providing lighting only when it’s needed.

  • Daylight detection

    Daylight detection

    Reducing waste light during daylight hours.

  • Constant illuminance

    Constant illuminance

    Producing the correct lighting levels for the duration of the maintenance period.

  • Task-scene setting

    Task-scene setting

    Allowing the user to set scenes and adapt the lighting to different tasks.

  • Timed off

    Timed off

    Automatic cut-off to turn all lights off during unoccupied hours.

  • Task lighting

    Task lighting

    Lighting task areas with the correct amount of light.

  • Zoning of lighting

    Zoning of lighting

    Zoning lighting in accordance to occupancy patterns or window location.

  • Maintenance schedule

    Maintenance schedule

    Long life light sources replace old technology increasing the time between maintenance calls and reducing light lost through lamp depreciation.designed for LED provides maximum energy efficiency.

  • Waste light

    Waste light

    Flat glass optics limit the majority of the light to the street scene, with only a limited upward aesthetic effect.

  • Reflectance


    Taking advantage of light which is reflected from the surface within the space.

  • Visible smart metering

    Visible smart metering

    Enabling results of actions to be quickly seen as increased or decreased energy use to encourage responsible energy consumption.

Legend LED luminaires improve high street lighting and energy efficiency.

Olivet is a commune located in the Loiret department in central France. It lies on the edge of the Loire Valley, a natural area
designated as a UNESCO world heritage site.

Its main thoroughfare, a former national highway, is now a busy shopping including many pedestrian crossings. Lighting was provided by 38 translucent facetted wall mounted units fitted with 250W mercury vapour lamps. The luminaires were of poor colour rendering qualities and very low lumen/watt energy efficiency.

The criteria for Olivet’s high street energy improvement programme took into consideration the main shopping thoroughfare, energy savings, a good colour rendering level and instant light, but with the provision that the existing installation points were to be retained.

Legend LED was selected by the mayor of Olivet due its ancient yet modern aesthetics which blend perfectly into the urban landscape.

Legend LED white light and high colour rendition makes it particularly suitable for lighting for a busy shopping area. The lantern's design together with its street lighting photometrics also eliminates obtrusive light, thus providing residents with a comfortable visual environment.

The use of LED brings a significant reduction in maintenance frequency with no more lamps to be changed and only the lantern's glass to be cleaned.

Legend LED luminaires have also been installed elsewhere in the commune, including Poutyl Park and other locations.
