South Africa:BEKA Schréder Supplies Turnkey LED Lighting Solutions for RTT Polokwane

BEKA Schréder - OMNIblast-E Midi

  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the area lighting for the new RTT Warehouse in Polokwane, South Africa. The RTT Group is a leading logistics partner specialising in multiple distribution strategies.

The new goods distribution warehouse required a South-African-manufactured, energy-efficient lighting solution for general area lighting to increase the feeling of safety and well-being. Various BEKA Schréder LED luminaires were chosen to achieve this.

Loading Bays

The loading bays were illuminated with the OMNIFLOOD and OMNISTAR-MIDI LED floodlights, and the BEKA VAPOURLINE linear LED luminaire.

The aesthetic, locally designed and manufactured OMNIFLOOD, combined with a variety of optical distributions, makes it versatile and thus the perfect choice for various types of applications, such as lighting recreational sports areas, industrial areas, service stations, campuses, business parks, car parks, building façades and billboards.

The OMNISTAR-MIDI has been designed to provide an unrivalled combination of performance and flexibility for lighting areas where high lumen packages are needed while offering maximum savings in energy and maintenance costs with a short payback time.

Designed to provide a long-term solution for harsh industrial environments, the BEKA VAPOURLINE has a strong mechanical design that makes it highly resistant to shock and vibration while its IP rating makes it ideal for dusty and wet locations. This high-performing luminaire provides an energy-efficient lighting solution. With a lifetime five times longer than a fluorescent tube, this modern linear LED luminaire lowers the total cost of ownership of a lighting installation and eliminates the need for maintenance. The BEKA VAPOURLINE creates safe and comfortable working conditions thanks to its low glare and high colour rendering index to optimise productivity.

Inner Warehouse

The inner warehouse was illuminated with the ECOBAY. The ECOBAY is the ideal luminaire for lighting industrial facilities at optimized light levels. It delivers the best solution for lowbay and highbay applications. The ECOBAY offers substantial energy savings, high performance and is able to operate at high ambient temperatures.

Available with four typical lumen packages and various light distributions, the ECOBAY is perfectly suited for multiple indoor lighting applications. The ECOBAY not only lowers your initial investment. It maximises it by providing a comfortable environment for your staff while limiting energy consumption to what is absolutely necessary. Thanks to its reliable performance, low dust accumulation and no need for relamping and regular maintenance, the ECOBAY is the luminaire of choice.

Parking Area

The parking area is illuminated with the ZIYA-2, an economical energy-efficient LED streetlight. Compact yet powerful, light yet robust, affordable yet highly efficient, the ZIYA range provides the fastest return on investment in road and area lighting.

The ZIYA range offers a superior lumen/watt ratio to deliver a high-performing, energy-efficient lighting solution at an affordable price for various landscapes, including pedestrian zones, streets, roads and car parks.

The ZIYA range comprises of the ZIYA-1 and ZIYA-2 with aluminium housing, and the ZIYA-E with calcium-filled Polypropylene housing. The range incorporates a universal side-entry mounting for 42mm diameter spigots. Precise on-site setting is facilitated through an incorporated inclination system. Built to withstand high ambient temperatures and vandalism (IK 10) and with a high Ingress Protection level (IP 65), the ZIYA range provides a sustainable performance over time.

Office Block and Guard House

The SERIES 300 LED bulkhead has been installed around the office block and guard house.

The SERIES 300 with its modern and simple design allows this LED bulkhead to blend into any areas by day, and to make an impact when it is dark. It is the ideal solution to beautify buildings and to provide area lighting for commercial developments, retail areas, shopping malls and public buildings.

High-quality materials are used to ensure a high ingress protection and non-discolouring diffuser. This, together with the long lifetime of the LEDs, and an easy installation procedure, makes the SERIES 300 the bulkhead of choice.

General Outdoor Area Lighting

The LEDNOVA-MIDI was installed to provide general outdoor area lighting.

The LEDNOVA is a robust and versatile LED bulkhead range, and offers optimal photometric performance and high reliability to reduce energy consumption and maintenance in all types of lighting applications.

The LEDNOVA range is suitable for use in various environments, which include outdoor mining areas, oil and gas refineries, food and beverage plants, manufacturing process plants and any application that requires robust and well-built luminaires. Indeed, the LEDNOVA range has been developed to reduce disability glare and thus improve the quality of light.

This LED bulkhead is also available in the standard surface mount version, and an optional pole mount version, which makes it truly versatile.

Entrance Area

The BEKA LEDDUO up- and downlighter illuminates the entrance signage. This luminaire has been manufactured from high- quality materials and is available in a wide or medium beam distribution. The luminaire housing is robustly constructed, weatherproof, hail

proof, corrosion proof and vandal resistant. It is manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminium, ensuring a long product lifetime.

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 Pienaar & Erwee Polokwane and S2 Electrical in providing a successful lighting solution for this project.
