Bridgelux LED arrays used by Borden Lighting to illuminate San Francisco’s Presidio

Fixture maker Borden Lighting of San Leandro, CA, USA says that the Presidio of San Francisco has installed LED walkway lighting to enhance the safety and energy efficiency of the national park.

Using LED arrays made by Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA (which claims to be the only vertically integrated manufacturer of LED solid-state light sources specifically for the lighting industry), Borden Lighting designed a unique indirect post-top walkway luminaire. Additional installations are planned.

The Borden luminaire was developed to conform to ‘dark sky’ lighting design concepts that effectively illuminate the pathway while preventing glare and light pollution. The original lighting design plan called for the use of metal halide (MH) luminaires, not for LED-based lighting. Borden decided to use Bridgelux’s 1200 lumen ES LED arrays not only for their greater energy efficiency but also because the arrays offered much higher quality of light and long life in a small source size.

“We used a warm 3000K white light to create a soft, welcoming appearance,” says David Malman, project lighting designer from Architectural Lighting Design. “The combination of the dark-sky luminaire design and the LED technology resulted in a beautiful addition to the landscape lighting while preserving the natural night-time setting appropriate for a national park,” he adds.
