LumaGrip™ Lights the way in Boujis exclusive London Club

The exclusive South Kensington night club, Boujis has put the safety of its A-list clientele first and gained a beautiful, softly illuminated stairway by installing LumaGrip™ illuminated stair nosing on the staircase leading down from the foyer to the main night club area.

The low, seductive, ambient lighting that characterises and sets the Boujis sexy and intimate atmosphere, great music and friendly bar staff certainly attracts a wealth of high profile guests to the extremely popular London night spot. However, low light levels posed a problem on the main stairway leading down to the night club itself and that was where LumaGrip™™ came in to play.

Illuminated stair nosing’s have been available for many years using LEDs but they have always been bulky, complicated, high maintenance and expensive. LumaGrip™ is set to change this with a range of illuminated inserts that replace existing infill in standard Aluminium and PVC nosing’s.

LumaGrip™, illuminated stair nosing insert, ticks all the boxes by providing a safety feature that is  anti –slip and can be supplied in a variety of colours, making it easy to colour co ordinate or contrast  creating an ideal  solution that will enhance  any stair area.

Compared to standard illuminated nosing’s LumaGrip™ comes with the added benefits of having a good anti-slip rating and a glare free illumination.  Also, standard illuminated nosing has, due to the bulb size, been limited to the front of the nosing on the face of the riser, which means they can be seen clearly only when going up the stairs.

The light source has to be bright enough to illuminate the lower tread and the resulting glare can prove visually distracting.  LumaGrip™ however is fitted in to the tread of the stair and so can be seen clearly from both the top and bottom without glare, providing easy to see illuminated edges,  complying with Health and Safety regulations

LumaGrip™ incorporates the Light Tape® electroluminescent lighting product into its design which also makes the lighting system extremely economical to run.  LumaGrip™ illuminated inserts have been developed to fit into any standard 50mm x 4mm Aluminium or PVC Plastic profiles. It is available in a width of 50mm by 4mm deep and up to 5m in length, incorporating either 6mm or 12mm Light Tape® in a variety of Colours. All connections are embedded in resin making the product safe and easy to clean.

LumaGrip™ has been developed to fit into standard Aluminum profiles, timber stairs and decking as well as uneven floors (edges of dance floors etc) safer and more visible with the benefit of light, which also has the advantage of looking attractive and adding a splash of truly visible colour and interest to any bar or club.  This is one safety essential that really looks good too.

In the interest of safety, it makes sense to ensure that steps and varying floor level changes are as visually obvious as possible.

Light Tape®

Light Tape® uses less than one twentieth of the power and is half the price of Neon and Cold Cathode display lighting, it is flexible, easier to install and maintain, reduces light pollution, produces no waste heat or infrared light, is fully recyclable, uses No Gas, No Glass and No Mercury.

Light Tape® is the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, in lengths up to 100m. Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design is safe with no mercury, no glass to break or gas to escape and it’s highly energy efficient too. In application, it is easy to install, requiring virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies.

Light Tape® is being used in both the Korean and Brazilian Subway systems as Emergency Egress Escape lighting it is also being used around the world in Safety Garments and is presently on test illuminating level crossing barriers.

“Light Tape® was found to be more visible in smoke than LEDS after a smoke test performed by the San Paolo Fire Department. The Fire Commission found Light Tape® to be clearly visible and provided enough illumination to navigate in emergencies. Brazilian Subway, San Paolo”

A NASA study for the Air Force on Electroluminescent Lighting  showed the technology was easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably Light Tape®  light penetrates fog, smoke, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions.

What is Light Tape®?

Light Tape® is made up of metal ribbon coated in Sylvania phosphor and encapsulated in a Honeywell laminate. Light Tape® has no glass, no gas, and no mercury/heavy metals and so is user and environment friendly. Light Tape® provides an 85% – 90% energy saving against other commercially available light sources such as Neon and Cold Cathode and due to its thinness (just 0.5mm thick, as thin as a business card) and being lightweight, affords inherent flexibility of use providing a neater, modern, space saving alterative that is easy to install with little to no maintenance and has a long working life.

About mikeltukl
About Light Tape Light Tape UK Ltd have launched a revolutionary, cost-effective slim and flexible electroluminescent lighting strip system that operates from low amperage supplies to provide numerous applications for use in industrial and commercial areas. Uses range from directional strip lighting in fire and safety applications to automotive, architectural and entertainment applications, as well as advertising displays and graphic display light boxes. It can even replace neon signage, notably for graphic display light boxes, where Light Tape enables greatly reduced box thickness to just 12mm, a huge reduction on other commercially available florescent light signage systems, which are 40mm thick. Light tape itself is just 0.5mm thick (as thin as a business card) and lightweight affording inherent flexibility of use and with this and the thinner Light Tape light boxes, the weight of the system is considerably reduced making it easier and safer to handle. Light tape provides an 85% - 90% energy saving against other commercially available florescent light boxes and Light Tape is also the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, with lengths of up to 300ft or more. By varying supply voltage and frequency, the brightness and hue of Light Tape can also be adjusted. Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design of this state of the art product is both safe, there is no mercury incorporated in it, no glass to break or gas to escape, and is highly energy efficient too. A 25mm wide by 300ft long Light Tape, consumes less power than a 100W light bulb whilst also being at least twice the brightness of alternative EL technologies. In outdoor illuminated signage applications Light Tape can be seen for miles. A NASA study for the Air Force on Light Tape showed the technology easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably Light Tape penetrates fog, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions. Light Tape is easy to install, and requires virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies and the flat, flexible, plastic lamp generates no heat and can be wrapped around corners." bend radius is just 2mm. And unlike fiber optics, Light Tape loves to be flashed sequentially or selectively which not only enhances applications but also significantly extends life. Multi-channel sequences and flashers are also available for use with Light Tape. Light Tape is the most versatile light bulb ever developed! Patent protected Light Tape is the thinnest, longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the World. Light Tape is extremely light, flexible and very easy to install. We offer multiple colors, a variety of widths and lengths of 100m or longer.
