Increasing safety and comfort with LEDlight solutions
The BB Parklight offers a wide range of product solutions for parkings. The BB Parklight is applicable in underground and above ground parking garages and bicycle parking.
The BB Parklight is a modulair lighting system made of a polycarbonate tube (100mm) and integrated LED strips and LED driver. De LED strip emits light directly down to the illuminated floor surface. With a reflector the beaming angle is fixed. This way a single light line can illuminate the full width of the driveway and parking spaces up to 16 meters.
The BB Parklight can be mounted stand-alone but can also be used to create continues or interrupted light lines. The fixture can be fitted with trough-wiring with terminal strips or an advanced connector system for fast and easy installation.
The lighting system has the following unique advantages:
- High quality LEDs with more than 100.000 hours lifetime (L80B10)
- DEKRA LED Performance certified verifying high quality electrical components
- High quality comfort lighting thanks to unique lighting principle
- Designed for application in harsh environments
- DALI control to optimize energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions
- Only uses fully recyclable components
- Audio integration in the fixture
- Central and de-central emergency lighting
- Park guidance integration of Park Assist
- Custom made solutions
Using high-power ceramic NICHIA LEDs and an excellent heat transfer of the LED module to the aluminum carrier profile the LED temperature stays low. This results in a very low lumen depreciation of the LED.
- LED lifespan performance (according to IEC/PAS62717) L90F50 = 200,000 hours
- LED lifespan performance (according to IEC/PAS62717) L80F10 = 100,000 hours
- Lifespan of the driver according to the manufacturer = 100,000 hours
A lighting installation driven by DALI ensures substantial energy savings. Dimming the light also extends the lifespan of the LEDs and the LED driver. Therefore, the BB Parklight is a lighting solution which requires a low maintenance.
DEKRA LED performance seal
The performance of the BB Parklight LED module is verified and certified externally by DEKRA and it has consequently granted the LED performance seal according to IEC/PAS 62722-2-1 and DEKRA K173. This included checking the fixture for energy efficiency, lifespan and light stability. These performance seals underline the fact that the BB Parklight is a durable and environmental friendly lighting solution.
High comfort lighting
In parking garages where there is a need for high comfort lighting a glare free alternative can be implemented. This can be the case in parking garages near stores and shopping centres where the owner wants to offer his clients a comfortable and save environment.
This high comfort lighting is a high quality fixture made of polycarbonate tubes and an aluminium carrier profile. A LED module emits light into an impact-proof polycarbonate tube (100mm), which internally has a special foil technique including 3M’s O.L.F. foil. This foil ensures a constant, even and anti-glare light distribution.
The BB Parklight is completely dust-proof and water-resistant. Therefore, it complies with the IP66 classification. This classification is awarded to the BB Parklight after tests showed that both water and particles of 1.0 mm were unable to penetrate the BB parklight.
Thanks to its shape and the material used (aluminium and polycarbonate), the BB Parklight is very strong and extremely vandalism-resistant. The impact-resistance is assessed for IK10+, which is the highest classification possible for durability.
DALI is standard fitted in each BB Parklight, which results in a unique feature which enables the light management system to regulate the light level on site and per BB Parklight. DALI is a system which automatically dims the capacity of the lighting according to the circumstances or the activity on a specific location. Light management software is available for every customer specification.
With the use of LED technology combined with unique electronics, the programmable dim scenarios can achieve substantial energy savings and reduce the CO2 emission. Earlier projects have already demonstrated savings of at least 60% compared to systems working at a constant full capacity.
Cradle to cradle
Michael Braungart and William McDonough are the founders of the C2C (cradle-to-cradle) concept with their WASTE = FOOD proposition. The main idea behind this is that all components used in a product can be returned into the production process at the end of useful life. Therefore, not decycling but 100% recycling. All BB Parklight fixtures meet the criteria and are certified by the C2C organisation EPEA.
To comply with the standards set by EPEA meant a complete redesign of the fixture. For example, the foils in the polycarbonate tube shown above are folded together and put into the tube using vacuum tooling. This means no environmentally unfriendly glue is needed and the fixture can easily be disassembled and taken back into the production process at the end of its lifetime.
The BB Parklight can be fitted with Audio integration for recreational purposes or a fully certified evaquation installation. Speakers, wires and isolators are integrated in the light line.
The audio integration solution combines superb aesthetics with high quality sound for speech and background music applications. The module is suitable for use in parking lots, train and subway stations, tunnels and industries where lighting and sound reproduction join together for communication purposes.
Sound characteristics of the loudspeaker match the needs for voice alarm purposes which demands an excellent speech intelligibility. Back ground music sounds natural and pleasant on a professional level.
- Certification according to EN54-24
- Protection level IP54
- 15W power with 100V line transformer
- Impact resistant aluminium housing
- For additional reliability, a 2 pin-ceramic block and a thermal fuse is added in an optional junction box.
The BB Parklight can be fitted with central and decentral emergency lighting. A decentral system uses an integrated battery to power the fixture for at least 60 minutes at a light level of 10%.
In a decentral emergency system the batteries are easily replaced by removing the aluminium cover. A LED indicator on the outside of the fixture indicates battery status.
A central system uses a UPS or NSA to power the fixtures. The BB Parklight can be fitted with two separate wiring systems for the regular and emergency lighting separately. A build-in addressing module detects when an emergency situation accurse and powers the emergency lighting fixture at 60%.
In a light line one fixture every 2 or 3 fixtures can be specified as emergency lighting to meet the regulations depending in the length of a single fixture.
The BB Parklight is expandable with an integrated park guidance system of Park Assist.
The intelligent park guidance system gives customers the ease of finding a parking space quick and therefore reduce search traffic. The Park Assist L4 system is a camera based system and is therefore expandable with features such as the Park Finder, where the customer can easily find where they left their car. The system also offers extensions for parking insights, alerts, surveillance and selected ratings.
The Park Assist module can be clicked on top of the fixture easily without the use of tools. Special brackets for the lighting system create room for the Park Assist module. Cable trunks are placed on top of the fixtures for the communication and power wiring according to the daisy-chain principle.
Custom made solutions
The BB Parklight is available in several basic types, lengths and wattages. If the standard types do not fully meet the requirements custom made solutions can be conceived, developed and produced.
Custom made solutions can be:
- Light color and/or color rendering
- Fixture length
- Mounting method with special brackets
