Hi-Rack is flying high at Toulouse-Blagnac

Hi-Rack luminaires light this maintenance hangar at Toulouse-Blagnac International airport in South-western France. Each of the 90 dimmable luminaires houses four high output 80W T16 (T5) fluorescent lamps. They provide an illumination level of around 750 lux at 2 metres.

The products were chosen because the aircraft maintenance technicians must repeatedly identify electrical parts and cables from their colour and need even illumination and good colour performance.

The engineers are delighted with the fixtures - and so are the airport authorities, who appreciate their lower running costs. The use of integral sensors linked to a SensaModular lighting control system has enabled them to cut their energy costs even further compared to traditional HID high-bays.
