City Lighting

Lighting, when applied to a city, is one of the most important factors, which make that city a place, living for 24 hours a day. Categorized as Functional Lighting and Architectural Lighting, the City Lighting fixtures generally provide more benefits and comforts to the city than their basic purposes of use.

Functional Lighting covers a lot of areas and elements such as highways, bridges, viaducts, pedestrian areas, crossroads and tunnels. Security, continuity of sustainable life and sustainable environment, prevention of accidents, and maximization of pedestrian security are among the basic factors of Functional Lighting, which affect normal life.

The purpose of Architectural Lighting is to glamorize and beautify the city through lighting of historical and cultural sites, buildings and engineering works. The cities having these assets are commemorated also by their architectural lighting.

Lighting should be applied in a city with the best and most effective technique and plan. Planning should be based on various technical criteria such as efficiency, comfort and economy. Resources should be used carefully, and valid solutions should be created within the frame of a long-term planning. The most energy-saving modes fit to the available circumstances should be searched for and applied in order to prevent waste of resources and light pollution.
