BEKA Schréder Supplies Solar LED Security Lighting to Letaba Hospital

  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the security lighting at Letaba Hospital in the Limpopo Province, South Africa.
  • Since this new lighting installation, security levels have increased and the number of incidents has reduced dramatically.

The lighting solution consisted of BEKA SOLAR units and the BEKA SERIES 30 LED bulkheads for general area lighting. The BEKA SOLAR units were supplied with LEDLUME-MINI LED streetlights to illuminate the roads on the hospital grounds. Area lighting in front of the staff housing was provided with BEKA SOLAR units supplied with decorative ZELA LED post tops. A solar lighting solution was chosen in order to provide security for the patients, whilst not being negatively impacted by load shedding. Furthermore, energy savings were an added benefit.

The BEKA SOLAR has been designed and manufactured in South Africa and offers a renewable lighting solution to operate reliably in any of our very challenging African environmental conditions. It has sufficient autonomy to cater for up to four continuous overcast or rainy days, to continue its reliable night operation. The BEKA SOLAR is theft and vandal resistant. Various battery technologies are available to meet specific customer requirements.

The BEKA SERIES 30 has been installed around the exterior of the buildings. This LED bulkhead luminaire range has been designed for decorative and efficient bulkhead lighting applications in modern architectural environments. It has been locally manufactured from high-quality materials, and due to LED technology, it is energy-efficient and requires very low maintenance.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. We are very proud to be associated with the Department of Health and Welfare and Leshika Consulting Engineers in providing a successful lighting solution for this project.

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.
