Hermanus Waterfront

Decorative lighting that reduces energy consumption and improves visual comfort for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians

We supplied the decorative lighting solution for the busy Hermanus Waterfront in the Western Cape, South Africa.

Affectionately known as “the Heart of Hermanus”, Hermanus Waterfront boasts a vast selection of more than 40 shops and restaurants located in the heart of the old Fisherman’s Village just above the Old Harbour in Hermanus. Some of the old fisherman’s cottages still stand on the piazza and are now declared heritage sites with original brickwork and walls and are now home to cozy and intimate restaurants.

The old streetlight installation needed to be upgraded. The requirement was for a luminaire emitting no upward lighting and no glare. The perfect solution: BEKA Schréder’s South-African designed and manufactured KAZELLE luminaire installed on glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) poles.


Decorative Post Top Luminaire 

The KAZELLE luminaire’s minimalistic and modern look is designed around the compactness of the LED engine, blending into landscapes. At the same time, sustainable lighting solutions are provided that dramatically reduce energy consumption and improve visual comfort for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Reliable, efficient, discreet and vandal resistant, the KAZELLE emits a pleasant, glare-free light. It has been designed for easy installation. With virtually no maintenance required and a full 5-year warranty, the KAZELLE guarantees long-lasting performance and massive savings.


Glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) pole range

The KAZELLE post top luminaires have been installed on South-African manufactured GRP poles, also known as the BEKAPOLE. 

The BEKAPOLE has virtually unlimited applications. It can be manufactured to any requirement relating to the number and configuration of luminaires to be mounted, inclusive of any special colour. Furthermore, the low mass of the GRP poles saves handling, transport and erection costs during installation:

  • Low handling costs: No extra equipment is needed to load or offload the poles.
  • Low transport costs: Save on transport costs due to the poles’ low weight and the higher stacking height on road freight.
  • Low installation costs: No extra equipment is needed to erect the poles.

We develop and manufacture energy-efficient LED lighting products in South Africa, designed and suitable for local conditions. 

We are very proud to be associated with Overstrand Municipality in providing a successful lighting solution for this project.
