Philips Gardco SoftView LED parking garage luminaires

Platinum Award
2017
When garages are constantly lit to maintain a sense of security for patrons, maintenance and operating costs can become expensive. Patrons should enjoy peace of mind as they leave their vehicles unattended, drive, and move about in a parking garage. This parking garage luminaire uses indirect illumination and up-light to reduce glare and eliminate the cave effect so that patrons can feel comfortably secure.
This illumination is created with edge-lit technology, where LED light is transmitted through the edge of a light wave guide panel. This creates efficient and controlled uniform indirect illumination that increases visual comfort without compromising performance or exposing viewers to harsh glare.

With a certain percentage of up-light harvested from this light guide panel and passed through the transparent upper housing to be directed up at the ceiling, the luminaires increase a feeling of openness in the space, without the gloomy “cave effect” that may make garage users feel unsafe.

Sustainability

No extra bird deterrence measures are needed because of the inherent housing design. The low profile and weight makes for easy installation and better use of limited garage space.
