F.A.Q

So Watts the Difference Here?

Local authorities across the UK have cut their unmetered electricity costs by up to 91% by switching their traffic sign downlights to a more sustainable and cost effective alternative.

A typical Type A / Type B CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) illuminated sign light consumes up to 46 watts.

The Glasdon Lumino City™ and Ecolumino™ range of LED downlighters illuminate traffic signs up to 750mm or 1500mm diameter and offer reduced power consumption from as low as 2.8 watts and up to just 8 watts!

Introducing Lumino City 750 & 1500 LED Downlighters...

Choose Lumino City 750 for signfaces with diameters up to 750mm and Lumino City 1500 for larger signfaces up to 1500mm.

The Lumino City range offers low power consumption without compromising on luminance performance. The light conforms to BS EN 12899-1 Class UE3 for uniformity of illuminance, and Class E2 for mean illuminance.

And constructed with Glasdon Impactapol® the downlighter housings are specially designed to absorb vehicle sideswipes, returning to their normal position after a collision.
