Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) Ga-Rankuwa Campus
Energy-efficient lighting solution with no need for relamping reduces cost
Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is the largest contact University in South Africa, providing quality education to more than 60 000 students every year. The University has seven faculties and nine campuses.
We are proud to have supplied majority of the interior and the exterior LED lighting solution for the new auditorium which was built and completed in 2022 at the Ga-Rankuwa Campus.
The electrical design included the installation of a state-of-the-art lighting and audio-visual system, which is designed to enhance participants' experience during all functions held at the auditorium, such as award ceremonies, teaching and learning, conferences, celebrations or examinations.
Our LED luminaires were the solution of choice since they offered the most energy-efficient lighting solution. Furthermore, due to their reliable performance, low dust accumulation and no need for relamping, these luminaires also minimise maintenance costs.
Due to the auditorium’s multi-purpose function, the luminaires have the functionality to be dimmed to the required lighting level. The LEDBAY lowbay and highbay luminaires, BEKARONDO circular aluminium reflector LED downlights, and the LED PANEL provide the main lighting in the auditorium. The LEDDUO decorative wall-mounted up-/downlighters illuminate the pillars. Decorative suspended LED downlight luminaires, the LEDDISK, provides general area lighting for the staircases.
The modern architecture of the new building is enhanced by illuminating the façade of the building with the LEDSTREAM high-performing versatile LED floodlight, and the LEDDUO decorative wall-mounted up-/downlighter. The main entrance to the building is lit up with decorative SERIES 30 LED bulkheads, while the high-performing LEDFLOOD floodlights illuminate the side entrances. ZELA LED post top luminaires, installed on glass-fibre reinforced polyester poles, have been installed around the outside of the building to provide general area lighting.
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 TUT Ga-Rankuwa, GPS Architects (principal agents and architects), Emzansi Consulting Engineers (electrical engineers) and Buzaphi Construction (main contractor) in providing a successful LED lighting solution for this project.
