As the tallest structure and most visible structure within the centre of Clydebank, the tower at Abbotsford Church, a modernist interpretation of a steeple, presented some challenge in developing an appropriate scheme.
After many months of deliberation, the concept sketch you see on the right was produced and was accepted by Clydebank Rebuilt and the Church community themselves. It forms the basis of the installed proposal and after testing both LED lightbars and LED neon, the system was installed.
Clever electrical engineering by local contractor ETI (Scotland) Ltd, meant that the maintenance was reduced to the bear minimum by having any components prone to failure over time housed in a discrete pillar adjacent to the structure.
The lighting can be altered through preprogrammed sequences that can be changed at the touch of a button.
