Spectrum Lighting has crafted state-of-the-art lighting fixtures for Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The New Orleans airport is a wonderful project that showcases many of Spectrum Lighting's products and capabilities.
The lighting design team contacted Spectrum Lighting to design a high bay luminaire with a specific output and distribution, delivering specified foot candles as part of the project. As part of this task, Spectrum created a custom three fixture mounting bar to hold the three high bay type luminaires. Spectrum also designed a special 60-degree beam downlight series used throughout the space. All fixtures supplied were required to utilize the same LEDS and drivers for ease of long-term maintenance by the airport.
Spectrum Lighting’s sales and engineering teams worked in coordination with the lighting design team and architects to design and produce a fixture to meet exact specifications. Optical reflector design for high bays and downlights were done in-house and the fixtures were tooled, spun, and manufactured all in-house by their skilled designers and craftsmen. The custom three fixture mounting bar was designed and manufactured in-house as well. The electrical contractor visited the factory and worked out installation details with the Spectrum design team. Changes made to that mounting system during this meeting allowed the contractors to pre-assemble fixtures in their shop and ship to the site ready to install, saving time and on-site coordination.
