Leicester, United Kingdom
Glenfield Hospital is situated approximately three miles north west of Leicester city centre. Thorlux has undertaken two projects on the site run by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust.
The Bradgate Mental Health Unit is an acute mental health admissions unit with seven acute admission wards and a ten-bedded male Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). The recent refurbishment of the unit has helped to create a modern, safe and functional space for patients and staff.
The Arcadian luminaire has been installed in a number of rooms within the unit. The Arcadian range has been developed to satisfy the need for an extremely impact and tamper resistant low glare LED luminaire for general lighting in circulation spaces, corridors and stairwells. The domestic impression of the Arcadian makes it an ideal choice for modern health care projects, where it can help to provide a welcoming and comforting ambience. The use of LED technology combined with the SmartScan wireless lighting management system ensure high efficiency and low maintenance, critical in keeping costs low.
New lighting has also been installed at The Beacon, the acute psychiatric inpatient facility for children and adolescents, including Realta:LR luminaires, high performance ligature-resistant luminaires suitable for external walkways and perimeter lighting, and Starbeam LED floodlights.
