Bridgelux LED Arrays Used To Deliver Advanced Lightingfor Grand Hotel Reylhof
Wevelgem, BELGIUM,March7, 2012 – Delta Light, a market leader and trendsetter in architectural lighting today announcedthe use of advanced LED lighting technology for the most recent renovation of the Sandton Group’s Grand Hotel Reylhof is in the heart of the city of Gent. Delta Light together with the hotel architects and lighting designers developed a lighting concept combining their vision of tomorrow’s hotel design while remaining true to the original Louis XIVarchitecture and atmosphere. Use of Delta Light’s innovative luminaires delivering high quality light using the Bridgelux LED light sources was key to the lighting design. Delta Light chose Bridgelux LED arraysfor their very high color rendering (CRI), excellent color consistency and energy efficiency. LED lighting also strengthens the hotel’s bottom line by eliminating infrared(IR) and ultraviolet(UV) radiation in the light beam preventing bleaching of the hotel textiles and wallpaper and also reducing demands on room air conditioning.
“We made energy efficient lighting a priority in our corporate vision. Lighting is a major contributor to our energy use. All new construction or renovation projects require the seamless marriage of energy efficiency with Sandton’s high lighting quality standards,” said DucoHeijbroek, General Manager of the hotel. “Working with, Delta Light, we developed a lighting design concept integrating the latest in hospitality interior design insights along with the latest in energy efficient LED light source technology from Bridgelux. Today’s Hotel Reylhof provides an inviting, warm haven in the bustling historical Gent city center.”
The hotel was originally built in 1724 in the Louis XIV style and was last renovated in 1964. This renovation included 158 rooms and suites creating the desired cozy home away from home atmosphere and a pleasant ambient light level in the hallways. About 380 Delta Light luminaires (REO 3033 S1 W.) were installed in the hotel during this renovation using 3000K warm white light at 80 CRI. The hotel estimates that they will save 75% in cost savings from energy in both lighting and reduced air conditioning costsplus greatly reduced lighting maintenance costs.
