Stair-edgings light up cinema screen at leading media company

CONTRACT interior specialist Gradus has installed a range of LED lighting solutions within the cinema screen of a leading media and film company based in Paddington, London.

Says the company: ‘While helping create a subtle yet stylish atmosphere, the illuminated stair-edgings provide the site with a safe solution in what is a low-light interior environment, helping reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls. Installed on the steps in the seating area, the Gradus ATD71L aluminium stair-edgings provide top and downward-facing illumination that clearly defines the step-edges.’

The stair-edgings, specified in a black anodised aluminium finish, combine two of the company’s LED lighting systems: Continuity, which reportedly creates a continuous linear lighting effect, and Interlok Advance, which provides a pinpoint lighting effect projected down the risers for extra visual definition.

Adam Hill, marketing product manager at Gradus, comments: ‘We worked closely with the media company to arrive at the perfect solution for their needs, which resulted in us combining the safety of lit stair edgings with the modern and sleek look they wanted to create within their cinema screen. We’re confident the finished article, with the well-defined treads and the pinpoint effect on the risers, achieves the project brief.

‘As well as this, the LED nosings feature specially welded corners owing to our expert Fabrications Service, which customises the profile to the surroundings for a tailored finish. In addition to the step lighting, Gradus also installed a small amount of our new LED Architectural Lighting around the door to produce a subtle, ambient glow. This mood lighting effect was achieved by combining our surface mounted Corner profile with a 10-watt Spotless LED Tape in 6000k Cool White.’

The Gradus lighting solutions installed as part of this project are fully controllable owing to a 4-in-1 dimmer rotary switch, allowing users to adjust the brightness at the touch of a button.

Adam continues: ‘This project is a great example of how various different products within our lighting range can be combined. At Gradus, we have more than 25 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of specialist LED lighting for cinemas and other settings, and can bring clients extra peace of mind through our full product management service that includes quotations, site installation and management through to ongoing maintenance and aftercare.
