Architectural lighting

Architectural lighting design is a field within architecture, interior design and electrical engineering that is concerned with the design of lighting systems, including natural light, electric light, or both, to serve human needs.

The design process takes account of:

  • The kind of human activity for which lighting is to be provided.
  • The amount of light required.
  • The colour of the light as it may affect the views of particular objects and the environment as a whole.
  • The distribution of light within the space to be lighted, whether indoor or outdoor.
  • The effect of the lightened system itself on the user.

Marine Lighting

Marine Lighting

If you own a luxury yacht the in purchase at the moment is underwater lighting. The LED lights are build into the hull and can be operated using an app on your mobile phone. Over the past few years this industry has grown incredibly well. The initial purchases were for retro fitted LED lights but now the lights can be specified at the time you order your boat. Apart from cable assemblies used in underwater lighting Swan have also started supplying over water lighting assemblies too.

Examples

We manufacture a wide range of cable assemblies for the Architectural and Marine LED lighting industry. We have designed and developed a UV resistant DMX cable specifically for the Architectural market, this has been used in Tower Block, Bridges and even for Harbour lighting.

Marine cables are generally manufactured from Polyurethane  or PTFE, we can also use potting compound on our glands to ensure no water ingress.
