When you are looking for unobtrusive, robust and bright yet efficient lighting for your shelter, the LED Puck is the answer. Over the years we have supplied pucks to a wide range of award winning shelter applications:
Acland Street Shelters - St Kilda Melbourne, Victoria
Public Transport Victoria (PTV), the City of Port Phillip and Yarra Trams worked together to upgrade the Acland Street streetscape, which included shelters inspired by the moon from Luna park. To provide efficient downward illumination with zero glare, a custom asymmetric LED puck beam with a sharp cut-off and no upwards illumination (VA2) was used.
Lennox Park in Richmond, Melbourne, Victoria
Relume Consulting picked up an Award of Excellence for the Lennox Street Park in Richmond for ‘A brilliant and innovative solution for illuminating an external space in a sensitive residential area’. The solution is so simple, yet most would have overlooked it. Ingeniously the LED pucks were used illuminating solid park umbrellas with a stunning effect.
Milligan Street Taxi Ranks, Perth, Western Australia
Aecom and the City of Perth installed 80 LED Pucks into taxi shelters in the popular late-night entertainment area of Northbridge. The project was selected for an IES award of excellence.
Playford Alive Town Park, South Australia
This urban renewal project has gathered a fistful of architectural and design awards including the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture (AILA) SA Landscape Architecture Design Award and the Kidsafe National Playspace Design Awards.
Swanston Street, Melbourne
One of the main objectives for the redevelopment of Swanston street in Melbourne, was to provide a safer environment, an enhanced experience with united landscape elements and public art. This included four new tram super stops at Franklin and A’Beckett Streets and the installation of street furniture, lighting and trees, all of which have aided the evolution of Swanston Street into a vibrant area in the heart of Melbourne. Planet Lighting supplied blue LED pucks and integral drivers mounted under seating units located adjacent to tram stops.
Eleanor Schonell Bridge, Brisbane
Iconic Eleanor Schonell Bridge is a well-known Brisbane landmark, connecting the St Lucia University of Queensland campus with Dutton Park. The cable-stayed bridge was built in 2006 and was the first bridge in Australia for the exclusive use by public transport; pedestrian, bicycles and buses. It sits 20 metres above the Brisbane River and is 390m long.
Planet Lighting worked with Brisbane City Council to provide a vandal resistant, cost-effective LED Puck solution achieving an average of 20 lux (exceeding P3 lighting standard) replacing previously installed in-ground metal halide up-lighters.
Planet provided 167 off 3000mm stainless steel pipe modules, each fitted with 2 powerful 5000K 1.5W marine grade stainless steel LED Pucks complete with in-tube drivers and power-supplies, and brackets to attach to existing structure.
Windrush Square, Brixton, London, United Kingdom
Renowned landscape architects Gross Max designed an urban space in Brixton, bringing three public spaces together: Tate Gardens, Windrush Square and St Matthews Peace Garden. The overall vision was to create a safe and well-lit public space that reflects the multi-cultural fabric of Brixton. London Borough of Lambeth and Transport For London appointed DPA Lighting Consultants to create a lighting design concept that would promote the recreational use of the square after dark and enhance views into the space from the surrounding area.
To achieve this, the edge of the space was illuminated, using columns in key perimeter positions, leaving the central space relatively free of artificial illumination. Instead, landscape focal points are illuminated such as a landmark plane tree and 20 metre tall street sculptures. The sculptures are illuminated by uplights and twinkling integral LED pucks, supplied by Planet Lighting.
