The diverse lighting requirements of the
new Carnoustie Medical Centre are being met by a wide range of
luminaires from Luxo. As well as fittings for ambient and accent
lighting, Luxo supplied specialist lighting products for medical
Providing health care facilities for Prime Care UK, the Carnoustie Medical Centre incorporates treatment rooms, offices, a waiting area and other associated spaces. In all areas, the design brief required energy-efficient, attractive solutions that would combine comfortably lit spaces with low cost of ownership while minimising the company’s environmental impact.
The lighting was installed by DH Morris: “Luxo was able to offer a complete lighting solution at a sensible price and backed the products with excellent service and support,” commented Bill Cochrane of DH Morris.
In office areas, the X-type range provided the ideal lighting solution, combining high light output with a stylish appearance and straightforward installation. All of the luminaires are fitted with T5 lamps to offer maximum energy efficiency and extended re-lamping intervals.
In treatment rooms, compact Eminent luminaires have been combined with LHH Plus luminaires, which have been designed specifically for the increasingly important area of examination and minor surgery where demanding viewing conditions require exceptionally good illumination.
Offering a standard lighting angle of 24 degrees, the specially designed lamp head and heat absorbing glass limit the surface temperature to 30°C, ensuring the fitting can be used close to people without the danger of burning. The articulated shade and spring-loaded arm makes this luminaire very flexible and easy to work with.
Completing the installation were a selection of other Luxo products, each selected to meet the needs of the particular space.
