What can not be missing in a project for a park: the right light
The lighting system is essential in public parks and in every urban area because there is always the right visibility. This obviously means safety at any time of day but also invites visitors to spend more time, that’s why the project must be studied in detail without leaving anything to chance.
The order, cleanliness and care of a public park are important to improve the appearance of the city and make it usable by all, but how can we choose the right light? A good solution is definitely the LED technology because it has a long autonomy and does not require special maintenance, but let’s see what are really the advantages.
Why opt for LEDs
In lighting for public parks, the led light is one of the best possibilities for several reasons. It is a choice that saves the municipal administration because as we have already specified lasts very long but above all, clearly illuminates any obstacle allowing citizens to move without problems and identify obstacles but also the paths within the park.
The LED light points are available in different design solutions to harmonize with each element, from the most impressive architecture to small flower plants, also the light can be adjusted in intensity as needed and directed to different points. There are many alternatives besides the classic spotlights, for example, light points embedded in the ground, large lamps for trees, low lights for paths, water resistant lamps for fountains and much more.
Eco-sustainable and aesthetically beautiful solution, LED technology is perfect for lighting public parks, let’s see how to design it at best.
Tips for optimal lighting
Keeping in mind that the task of light in the parks is to allow the full usability of the same, the first rule is to properly illuminate the entrance areas and those of greater passage, so all accesses and paths within the park must be always detectable at any time of day. In particular, the entrances must be highlighted both vertically and horizontally and generally use wide beam diffusers.
There should also be low-level lighting points for the paths, but only where lighting is already sufficient and only the pavement in sufficiently protected areas should be illuminated.
Do not forget that a proper light is synonymous with safety and visual guidance in the dark, so the park must always have enough during the dark hours, so that everyone can better orient themselves.
There is also an aesthetic function and in this sense, in the parks should never miss the direct lights on landscape details such as large plants but also a light from below that goes to highlight the large architectural details creating a very suggestive effect. Again, RGB devices can be inserted for scenic effects rich in color, for example in correspondence of fountains or particularly elaborate flower beds. The important thing is to ensure excellent visibility of the area even with just a quick glance.
