This busy underpass linking a large car park with the local ASDA supermarket was a key focus for Clydebank Rebuilt as part of the regeneration works they master-planned throughout the town centre. The design had to be robust and deliver both statutory and decorative lighting at the same time. A bespoke aluminium housing was created which carries concealed fluorescent strips to the rear to give a floating backlight effect which acts as the statutory lighting for safety.
Embedded in the underside are around 100 different sparkle LED's and colour change down-lights that react to movement within the underpass creating pools of coloured light along the centre line as people walk through.
This simple but effective scheme has helped to brighten up an otherwise drab underpass that was more about function than fun, not now!
