BEKA Schréder - ECOBAY

  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the LED lighting solution for various sections of the Tshwane Automotive Special Economic Zone (TASEZ) in Gauteng, South Africa.
  • TASEZ is Africa’s First Automotive City taking the lead in growing Africa’s industrial revolution and providing meaningful employment and business opportunities for communities and SMME’s in the City of Tshwane.

This first-class development required a first-class lighting solution. BEKA Schréder has supplied LED luminaires for various sections of TASEZ. They have been chosen as they have been designed and manufactured in South Africa, are robust, cost effective and provide an efficient lighting solution to maximise energy and maintenance cost savings.

Automould and Aeroklasduys buildings

Various LED luminaires have been installed in and around the Automould and Aeroklasduys buildings. The ECOBAY and LEDBAY (with emergency version) highbays have been installed inside the buildings, and the DUISAemergency lighting range has been installed at Emergency exit doors. The LEDTEC S lowbay provides general area lighting in the loading bay areas. The ZELA decorative post top illuminates the parking areas, and the OMNISTAR-MIDI floodlight provides general area lighting around the buildings. The SERIES 300 decorative bulkhead has been installed on the outside of the security guard buildings, with the BEKANOVA bulkhead being installed around the main buildings.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
