Local and long-distance railway stations are places that connect people. In addition to their function as stops, they must enable passengers to rapidly find their way around and feel safe. The correct lighting of platforms, circulation areas and railway station architecture is essential. For this purpose, luminaires must meet two main conditions: firstly maximum resistance to external factors such as heat, cold and moisture for extreme resilience in continuous operation. Secondly, luminaires at railway stations need to offer a variety of design options for holistic lighting concepts and also provide good visual comfort. Luminaires from ERCO meet these criteria.
