BEKA Schréder illuminates award-winning Aquatic Centre

The American International School of Johannesburg (AISJ) Aquatics Centre has won architectural awards in both South Africa and the United States. BEKA Schréder, a proudly South African lighting manufacturer, is honoured to have been awarded the task of illuminating this aquatic facility as a preferred lighting solutions provider.

We are also proud to be associated with Rawlins Wales & Partners and Grosskopff Lombart Huyberechts and Associates in providing and implementing a successful lighting solution for this magnificent project, which required a lighting solution where ease of maintenance and access to the luminaires were a prime criteria. This was successfully achieved whilst providing the correct lighting levels and taking into account a solution that would suit this environment aesthetically. The robust BEKAMAX floodlight range mounted on specially manufactured brackets was used for this purpose.

Yet as a leading lighting solutions provider and a responsible company, it is a priority for us to aim and continue to minimize our ecological footprint. At the forefront of the major driving force for the switch to LED lighting, BEKA Schréder is firmly committed to offering lighting solutions that drastically reduce energy consumption.

By combining the best of LED technology with a wide range of control systems, our solutions offer huge energy savings of up to 85% and drastically reduce the payback time on new installations. We are committed to tomorrow by remaining sustainable today. We believe that this ethos is shared by many of our clients. We are confident this philosophy will dictate the specification of lighting solutions from hereon.

As an example, we can currently offer an LED solution on this sport application that would save more than 25% energy compared to the existing solution by replacing the existing luminaires with our new and highly efficient OMNIstar modular LED floodlight range. Another consideration is the long term maintenance reduction by using LED technology, and the possibility of light controls would mean further energy savings.
