Willows Veterinary Hospital is an award-winning veterinarian based in Northwich. They have been a core part of the Hartford community for over 50 years and are currently accredited with a Tier 3 Hospital Status from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon – the highest possible accolade.
With the Hospital seeing high footfall, it was imperative for the correct lighting to be installed to illuminate the walkways. After some deliberation, it was clear that to cover the whole area there must be a combination of products.
This was easily achieved with our large portfolio of products across numerous categories. We can supply a wide range of quality LED solutions. Whether that be a 1000w floodlight or a 1w downlight.
Across our product portfolio, the team overseeing the installation were able to identify three different products that met their lighting requirements whilst also remaining visually appealing.
At the very front of the building, located at the steps, you will find the stunning Monza Inox Stainless Steel Bollard, which strikes the perfect balance between form and function. Visually, the bollard is sleek with both classic and modern touches, however the stainless-steel housing does not just provide visual appeal, it also demonstrates a product that has superb build quality. One of the main reasons stainless steel is most sought after, is in its strength, being retained across both high and low temperature ranges. Another great benefit is in its sustainability properties, where at the end of life, the stainless-steel body can be fully recycled.
Constructed from high grade AISI 316L Stainless Steel, with an externally louvred head and opal polycarbonate diffuser, makes it ideally suited for both residential and commercial applications. Available in three different heights of 450mm, 750mm, and 1000mm, with an ingress protection of IP44, and having an E27 lampholder, allows multiple lamp options, with the added benefit of installing a Bluetooth or WiFi enabled lamp, thereby allowing control remotely.
Along the exterior of the building, is the Mini Vision 3 LED has been installed. An aesthetically pleasing IP65, Non-Dimmable, circular polycarbonate bulkhead fitting, ideally suited for both general internal and external hospitality locations, as well as for ancillary areas, and in having a polycarbonate construction allows installation in external areas which suffer from exposed weather conditions. The Mini Vision 3 comes in various finishes, namely white, graphite and silver grey, as well as being offered with either an additional louvred eyelid or plain eyelid cover for additional lighting effects, allowing this range to look good externally on both residential and commercial buildings. Available in 9 Watt LED with a 4000K colour temperature as well as the added benefit of specifying a discrete integral PIR means the fitting gives a bright cool light to any application which can automatically controlled to minimise energy use.
Finally, to complete the trio of products installed at the medical location, an Ansell LED Downlight can be seen recessed into the soffit, which can be seen as a great way of illuminating the outside area discreetly.
The project was a huge success. Management at Willows Veterinary Hospital were immensely satisfied with the outcome. The trio of products, brought together from multiple product categories across our portfolio, provided value for money and above all else, quality.
