Decorative LED luminaires for Uganda’s Imperial Mall

BEKA Schréder is proud to have supplied ALBANY LED post top luminaires to Imperial Mall, a state-of-the-art facility in Entebbe, Uganda. Designed in a Tuscan-inspired architectural style, this decorative LED luminaire enhances the aesthetic appeal of this new popular shopping centre.

Entebbe serves as Uganda’s major gateway as a result of the Entebbe International Airport, Uganda’s main international airport. It is in the process of being expanded and upgraded, which is anticipated to create an increased flow of visitors in and out of Entebbe. Entebbe is a popular destination for both locals and tourists as an alternative to the busy Kampala city, Uganda’s capital, with a distance of approximately 37km between them. Imperial Mall was constructed to serve the ever-increasing need for a stylish and upmarket shopping experience.


Manufactured in Africa, the Albany LED was the luminaire of choice for this prestigious project, not only for its aesthetics, but also for its performance. The benefits of LED technology provide power-saving advantages and low maintenance requirements, making it ideally suited for this project.

The Albany LED is notable for its versatility. Available in two sizes, with a range of LED photometric engines and a timeless form, it is suitable for a wide range of applications. In addition, numerous bracket options are available from which to choose. Equipped with state-of-the-art LED technology, this classic luminaire is ready to improve the quality, comfort and safety of a lighting installation while offering significant energy savings and reduced CO2 emissions.

Positioned directly next to the LEDs is ThermiX®, an electronic temperature monitoring system that prevents overheating of LEDs and the power supply, thereby ensuring maximum expected LED lifetime and performance over time. The flexibility of the LensoFlex®2 photometric engine allows for multiple light distributions to ensure that the specific requirements of each application are met. Furthermore, the options for varying the number of LEDs allows for a precise adaptation of the nominal power of the luminaire according to the area that is to be lit. Additional features, such as a custom dimming profile, can be included to improve energy savings.
