“The first thoughts of all parties was to reinvigorate the existing infrastructure simply by installing new lighting technology.” said Glen Haron. “But after consulting with Richard Massey and Fred Nimarota, Managing Director of Aurora in Australia, and reassessing the enormity of the project and all the issues it entailed, we agreed that a complete rethink was required.” Fred Nimarota says “Our Versitile XL range was the ideal solution for this project. We went about rethinking our strategy with these LED edge lit panels that are more efficient than a backlighting scheme as they require less light to appear bright.”
Early on, it was established that the cost of this custom installation was in the fabrication of non- standard LED edge lit panels, so productionising the replacement panels to minimise the number of different sizes, and the cost, was the way forward.
“The solution we came up with seems obvious now that we’ve done it,” said Haron. “It is revolutionary but happily after 32 years in business we have the credibility and track record to support new ways of doing things. The client was convinced our solution was the way to go.”
