Martin Professional‘s award-winning Exterior 400 Range of outdoor LED wash lights has been used to dynamically light the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) building in UAE in a flood of decorative colored light.
Installed around the perimeter of the building on 1.8m high decorative poles are Exterior 400™ and Exterior 410™ lighting fixtures as well as Martin Exterior 200 LED™ luminaires. The Exterior 400 Range is a powerful yet energy-efficient line of LED light fixtures for colored or white light projection that recently won a Platinum level 2011 Product Innovation Award as one of the best LED/solid-state luminaires on the market.
The main decision maker behind the lighting concept is ADJD architect Aziz Meleka who specified the Exterior 400 Range after viewing a demo by Martin Professional Middle East.
The project was then forwarded to the contractor, B.J. Lighting, a Martin Professional dealer in Abu Dhabi, who also handled local lighting supply and installation. B.J. Lighting worked closely with Martin Professional Middle East throughout the project.
The facade lighting for the building consists of three parts - dome, curved wall and entrance wall - with various color changes and scenarios enhancing the architecture and transforming the space into a decorative jewel of nighttime Abu Dhabi.
Martin Middle East and B.J. Lighting worked under an exceptionally tight deadline to deliver the project on time. Installation of the Martin luminaires commenced on November 7, 2010 and was completed already on November 30 with commissioning taking place on Dec 2, the UAE’s National Day.
The Exterior 400 line of outdoor wash lights consists of two powerful RGBW color mixing fixtures (separate color pixels or pre-mixed), one white light fixture with a wide color temperature range, and a single color variant. With very low power consumption (max 139 W), the Exterior 400 Range is also a leader in energy-efficiency. All fixtures include color calibration ensuring uniformity, a super rugged IP65 housing, and internal power and control.
