If demands for the outside apply inside: Use outdoor luminaires in stations

Transport structures in local and long-distance traffic are more than just railway stations. They are places that connect people. They are frequently in operation 24/7 and exposed to many external factors of influence – for example temperature, adverse weather and dust. This demands lighting that can withstand it all: hard-wearing luminaires which also enable creative design concepts to be implemented. ERCO offers the complete spectrum. Our outdoor luminaires defy cold and heat, are dust-tight and extremely tough. But that's not all – we offer you a holistic lighting concept that includes a range of lighting tools for optimum visual comfort and economical lighting concepts. You thus have all you need to shape the character of public buildings. After all, you are the one to reflect the aspirations and reality of society. Creating new features and maintaining existing structures presents you with both opportunity and responsibility. Both now and in the future it is more important than ever for stations to provide orientation and safety – and also when implementing hygiene concepts. No matter whether it's rush hour or off-peak times. Become active now and carry out your next project with outdoor luminaires and an economical lighting concept from ERCO.

Why our luminaires are the ideal tools for your project:

Light for stations

Defying wind and weather
Outdoor luminaires are specifically developed to meet the requirements for lighting in urban environments. The housing is made of corrosion-resistant material and is therefore especially weatherproof. The no-rinse surface treatment ensures a reduced dirt deposit. ERCO projectors have an IP65 protection rating, which means they are dustproof and protected against jets of water from all directions.

Light for stations

As tough as they come
Our outdoor luminaires give the cold shoulder to external influences of a mechanical nature: robust ground-recessed luminaires remain intact even with daily bouts of heavy walkover traffic. Bollard luminaires that comply with IK10 impact resistance effortlessly withstand rough treatment from outside. For you this means less repair costs and downtime in daily operation.

Light for stations

24/7 continuous operation
During non-stop operation at stations, downtimes and failures must not occur. ERCO outdoor luminaires require very little maintenance. The LEDs we use have an average failure rate of less than 0.1% over 50,000 operating hours – a value above the market average. You can rely on economical, almost completely interference-free operation.

Light for stations

Persistence
The LEDs in our luminaires have extremely long service lives. This means that over an operating time of 50,000 hours, at least 90% of LEDs still maintain 90% of their original luminous flux (L90/B10). Even after almost 6 years of continuous operation the maintenance value of the illuminance is still not fallen below. Lens systems free of spill light control the light so precisely and efficiently that it is guided precisely onto the target surface – even from large distances.

Light for stations

Toolbox for impressive lighting concepts
Help yourself from the extensive ERCO toolbox: our luminaires, available in different construction sizes, offer different light distributions for lighting tasks in every dimension. Added to that is perfect quality of light in terms of colour rendering and colour temperature as well as precise lens systems for optimum visual comfort. Select from a variety of control technologies and design lighting concepts that inspire with lasting effect.

How long do ERCO luminaires last?

Thanks to high product quality and excellent luminous flux maintenance, ERCO luminaires provide a high level of investment security. There is an indicator that also reflects the quality of luminaires in figures: the L90/B10 value. It specifies the assured behaviour of a luminaire in the first 50,000 hours of its service life. At 9 hours of daily operation over 15 years, this means excellent photometric properties. The luminaire is fully functional even after this time. Please note that you may then have to consider the brightness level of the luminaires separately in your lighting calculations.

How long is the ERCO warranty?

ERCO offers a 5-year voluntary manufacturer's warranty on its products. The currently valid warranty conditions are available on request via the e-mail address: guarantee(at)erco.com
