LAX Unveils Energy-Saving New Lighting
Los Angeles International Airport has installed more than 1,800 LED-based fixtures as part of a lighting renovation project by Color Kinetics Incorporated . The LED-based system is expected to consume just 25 percent of the total energy drawn by the previous fixtures, while also reducing maintenance and cutting the number of electrical vendors required from six to two.
The $1.8 million overhaulÃ‚Â called for the replacement of five-year-old metal halide fixtures within 26 glass pylons leading to the airport’s entrance, known as theÃ‚Â LAX Gateway. Ranging in height from 25 to 110 feet, the translucent pylons can now display custom-designed, color-changing effects.
“We have enhanced the visual impact of LAX Gateway, while at the same time decreasing energy consumption and alleviating the maintenance costs and concerns of the past,” said Bill Sims, President and CEO, Color Kinetics.
