Floodlighting of Level Crossings for Network Rail required Luminaires that provided the correct illumination, with minimum glare and robust construction to provide a long life with minimal maintenance.
F Series Floodlights are probably the most robust heavy duty Floodlight on the market. Earlier versions of this Floodlight were first used (by British Rail) over 50 years ago on the Railways and many can still be seen in operation today all over Britain.
As part of a recent upgrade, VeeLite has supplied Railway Floodlighting for the Level Crossings at Chertsey, West London (photo above). Other recent Railway floodlighting upgrades include Mobberley near Manchester (photo below), Ashtead near London, Bedhampton, Brockenhurst and Chilworth near Southampton, Chard near Bristol, Chiswick Grove, Farnham, Sandwich, Sunningdale, and many other stations across England. Wattages are typically 150w, 250w and 400w and many fittings have glare reducing Shields fitted. A heavy duty LED version is being introduced in late 2015.
Because of its robust features, the fitting has also been used in Ports and Harbours (eg Portsmouth Harbour), on Container Cranes (eg Liverpool Docks) and in Power Stations (eg. Warrington). Recently, the F Series Floodlight (in 60 Hertz Version) was used on the new MPI Resolution and 2 similar ships, which are designed specifically to install Turbines in the North Sea.
VeeLite has supplied internal Terminal Building / Concourse lighting to several Rail Stations.
