Vialume – a complete family with visual comfort

Press Release   •   Oct 18, 2016 13:42 BST

Taking inspiration from the beautiful Nordic light and nature, we created Vialume 1 – Fagerhult’s first self-manufactured post top luminaire for city streets, footpaths and parking lots. Having been well received, the family is now being expanded with two new variations on the Nordic classic.

The Vialume post top luminaire is characterised by a soft, organic shape with simple lines, which link it to the Nordic design tradition. The timeless, stylish design enhances the area during the daytime and provides brilliant lighting in the dark of night. Vialume is, quite simply, a luminaire, which is equally well-suited to classic surroundings as it is to a modern city environment.

A Nordic expression – several applications

– With three luminaire sizes in the same design, Fagerhult can now offer complete, energy-efficient lighting solutions for any city environment – from footpaths to motorways, says Nils Stjernman, Business Area Manager Outdoor

The smaller post top luminaire, Vialume 75, has been developed with outstanding light properties for smaller streets, footpaths and bicycle paths. As the name implies, the luminaire is 75 percent the size of its larger sibling Vialume 1, but both the design and outstanding visual comfort are uncompromisingly the same.

In contrast, Vialume 2 (launch Q1 2017) is a bigger, more powerful version with high luminous flux and advanced optics developed for illuminating wider main streets, motorways and large car parks. A road lighting system may include hundreds of posts, where every watt is important. This is why Fagerhult’s R&D team has focused on obtaining as much light as possible from the luminaire.

Optimised optics

By using our specially developed AGC (Advanced Glare Control) lenses, we have succeeded in minimising glare and ensuring good uniformity. The lenses are available in several versions with light distributions adapted for different areas of application.

The lenses are extra-large and tightly placed in a single luminous cluster – a design which optimises visual comfort. Furthermore, the lenses are recessed into the luminaire to minimise glare, and the light cluster illuminates the inner edge of the light aperture – an elegant effect which makes the luminaire visible from a distance and provides a visual guidance.

The Vialume family includes various lighting control options for ensuring a sustainable lighting system. And rest assure, any lighting solution can be customised with regards to luminous flux, colour temperature, cables and other factors that could have a significant effect on the functionality of an installation. 

Fagerhult develops, produces and markets professional lighting solutions for public environments such as offices, schools, retail areas, industries and hospitals, indoor and outdoor. Our lighting knowledge, in combination with a wide range of innovative, energy efficient, environmental friendly lighting solutions, makes us a natural partner for the entire project. Fagerhult is a part of the Fagerhult Group, one of Europe’s leading lighting groups, with about 2,600 employees and operations in over 20 countries around the world.
