Heritage Street lighting

A new Heritage Street lighting system was installed along the Riverbank in Kilkenny.  This is one of the most attractive urban areas  in Ireland, with Kilkenny Castle providing an impressive backdrop.

The original lighting of functional street lights was replaced with these new Heritage Street lighting Lanterns, with heritage lighting columns to match.  Lighting levels were significantly improved and the appearance of the new lighting enhances the centre of this tourist orientated heritage town. The scheme was recently been expanded to the far side of the river and also to other Streets in Kilkenny.

With 8m decorative street light Poles, Avon 75 brackets, and decorative Pendant heritage Luminaires with a copper and black finish, the scheme has received much favourable comment. External Copper Lights have the advantage that they do not corrode or rust.  They will turn green/grey after a period.  The Project was specified by the Local Authority and installed by SSE contractors.

These heritage Lanterns were recently installed along Kieran Street using wall brackets and LED optics.
This is the main pedestrian street in Kilkenny centre.

The Heritage lighting columns are similar to standard Tubular lighting columns, except sometimes are provided with larger (wider) diameter, to provide more substantial appearance. The lighting Column is usually in Black finish and several decorative aluminium castings are added afterwards for architectural effect.

The same heritage lantern was supplied to Kingsbridge Hospital Sligo but with LED optics and in post-top version. This LED Heritage lighting system replaced a non-LED Heritage lighting  system which was costly to maintain and not as efficient.
