The train station of Brussel-Congres is located in the heart of the city just in between Brussels - North and Brussels - Central. The station consists of 4 waiting platforms with a length of approximately 200m.
The BB Infralight replaces the old-fashioned TL-fixtures. The customer choose the fixture because of the excellent low-glare values, high light uniformity and vandalism resistance. In addition to that, maintenance cost is kept low with the long lifetime of the high quality components.
The project consists of individual light fixtures with a length of 4 and 6 meters above the platform. This creates an esthetical and visually continuous line while maximizing the comfort for the train opperator and travellers.
In the project 1 out of 2 fixtures is equipped with integrated emergency batteries. This reduces the need of additional seperate emergency lighting fixtures. In case of an emergency, these batteries take over and increase safety, enlighting an evacuation path on the platform.
