Tblisi city council has lately decided to provide the tower with a new and more effective lighting system based on LED fixtures in order to make it even more impressive and efficient at night. The official lighting requirements involved a highly dynamic colour changing scheme equipped with a vast choice of pre-programmed effects suitable for different social events, everyday lighting and public holidays. The lighting solution proposed by GRIVEN was aimed at delivering an even illumination to the metallic frame of the tower, made up of many beams and arms forming its 8 different levels. Each single metal part of the tower had to become perfectly visible at night from every point of view, lit up by a dynamic alternation of lively and bright colour scenes. After evaluating different proposals, GRIVEN’s project turned out to be the best and most complete solution.
83 Powershine S MK2 in RGBW colour configuration, 40 Parade S-RGBW-20, 23 Onyx Ultra Spot RGBW and 48 Jade 16 RGBW for a total of 194 powerful LED lighting fixtures have been located both on the ground around the basement and on the 8 different levels of the tower in order to evenly light up every single part of its skeleton through a meticulous aiming job. Custom fixing brackets have been welded onto the structure in order to allow a perfect fixture disposition.
In detail, 23 units of Onyx Ultra Spot in RGBW configuration have been installed at ground floor in order to light up with their ultra-narrow, sharp, long-shot beam the hardly reachable parts of the tower with amazing precision and even light distribution. Taking the lion’s share, 83 Powershine S MK2 RGBW with spot, elliptical or narrow optics according to the diverse lighting needs, have been mounted on each of the 8 levels and even at ground floor to complete the Onyx job. 40 units of Parade S-RGBW-20 have been fixed around the platform of level 2 at 77m from the ground in order to enhance this border with beautiful uniform shades. Moreover, 48 JADE 16 RGBW with extra wide optics were used at level 5 to enhance the upper crown of the tower, location of the control room, with dynamic spot lighting effects.
