High-performance floodlights for high ambient temperatures

High-performance floodlight in different designs. With a luminaire luminous flux of more than 42,000 lumens, they set new standards in terms of economy and efficiency.This series continues our history of successful high-performance floodlights with all of the quality features.These floodlights are characterised by the extremely long service lives of their LED and power supply units and of their precise optical systems. Glass, silicone and aluminium are used to deflect the light and optimise efficiency. These materials are practically wear-free and virtually unaffected by ageing. BEGA does not use polymer lenses in view of their questionable ageing properties and thermal stability. Highly efficient reflectors create either very narrow beam,... More

Siemens City, Vienna

With respect to „green building“, the new company headquarters of Siemens in Austria not only meets the criteria of the EU, but represents an embodiment of the central corporate objective of „sustainability“. This becomes apparent not only in the architecture of the company but also in its fittings. Energy-efficient luminaires with optimum light distribution are one aspect of this.The main emphasis of the entrance axis is placed on the 4.60 metre high, elegant light building elements. Their asymmetrical, flat beam radiation characteristics produce a homogeneous surface illumination, even when the luminaires are spaced far apart. Energy efficiency also becomes apparent in the lamps used: the 50 W LED luminaire generat... More

The University of Music, Karlsruhe

The multifunctional building with modern lesson and performance rooms is an extension to the campus of the University of Music Karlsruhe. In a plain architectural style, this exceptional building has a distinctive entrance area. BEGA light building elements in a reduced form ensure excellent illumination of the campus area in front of the building.The bright border around the glazed entranceway acts like a passe-partout. To the right, a dynamic wall surface is created, which, interestingly, is angled in such a way that it points directly to the entrance door of the Renaissance castle Schloss Gottesaue, which also forms part of the campus and is also used for music lessons.For this application, the light building elements have been installed...

Project • By BEGAConcert Halls

Festspielhaus, Erl

The new concert building in Erl contrasts with its neighbouring buildings, in form as well as in colour. As a contrast to the round white Passion Playhouse from the 50s, the architects Delugan Meissl designed an angular building in black.The connecting path between the two buildings is illuminated by BEGA bollards, whose equally angular design seems to adapt to the environment. These highly versatile luminaires can be used either for flat beam lighting or for wide-area illumination. A high level of cost-effectiveness is achieved with the choice of the LED bollards of this series.A highly interesting pattern is created by the geometrical, angular surfaces of the wall lining the path. The entire shell of the new Festspielhaus building is conc... More

Institute for Medical Genome Research, Berlin

The Max Delbrück Centre for Molecular Medicine (MDC) as well as the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) have jointly developed the new Institute for Medical Genome Research on the edge of the Berlin-Buch campus, thus creating an ultra-modern and competitive research location.The entrance hall impresses everyone with its openness over the entire height of the building; it is generously flooded with daylight, with its main focus of attention being a spiral staircase which reaches all floors. The gentle curves of the staircase offer a stark contrast to the severe lines of the building shell, thus creating fantastic impressions of space.The illumination is a sculpture and a light source at the same time. The unshielded penda... More
