The National University of Ireland, Maynooth, has received positive review for its new Phoenix Restaurant. The name was chosen because the Restaurant was rebuilt after the earlier Restaurant was destroyed by fire. Both the internal restaurant lighting and the external lighting was specified by VMRA Engineering Consultants and manufactured/supplied by VeeLite/Light.ie.
The external lighting consisting of high performance Optra luminaires and the internal lighting consisted mainly of SoftBays. Both Luminaires provide high levels of illumination with minimal glare, low energy consumption and low maintenance.
The Softbay HighBay is ideal for efficient commercial and Industrial lighting such as Restaurant lighting/Canteen lighting, retail lighting, large Hallways, Corridors and Convention centres, cafes, Aircraft Hangars, etc. The refractor is visually attractive, low glare and the uplight element eliminates ceiling darkness.
Previously supplied in Metal Halide version, these Softbay highbays are now supplied in a smaller size with LED optics, typically 100w to 200w LED.
We also supplied the external Restaurant lighting. This consisted of Optra post-top luminaires which are high performance,architectural and low glare. With their wide spacings, there is a reduction in column clutter. Since 2017, a new slimmer LED version is offered. Columns supplied can be painted to any RAL finish and in different shapes (eg Conical lighting Poles, Tubular lighting Poles, etc). LED luminaires can be dimmed or controlled by Sensors to switch on/off instantly which is sometimes required in Restaurant Lighting projects.
