External Lighting Upgrade
A lighting upgrade from Architainment ignites new interest in much loved theatre.
Art Deco theatre the Troxy was struggling to grab the attention of passers-by at night, with very little light emitting the building; suggesting that the theatre was closed. The primary objective of the lighting upgrade was to bring some new life to the exterior of the building; reflecting the same energy present on the inside.
During the summer of 2013 Troxy called upon Architainment Lighting for a number of external LED lighting solutions. Wanting to make the most of the original 1930s features, Architainment specified ColorBurst Compact, ColorBlast TRX and ColorBlast Powercore for the lighting upgrade which remained sympathetic to the architecture.
Troxy knew prior to Architainment’s involvement that they required an all LED solution, this was due to, primarily, the durability associated with LEDs and secondly, because of the reduced running costs. (Troxy have already been making an impressive £30,000 per year saving after replacing their internal spots to an LED alternative.) In addition to the fixtures supplied, Architainment’s Technical Services team built a custom web interface specifically for the Troxy allowing easy synchronisation between the already existing internal lighting system and the newly supplied external fixtures – allowing clients the flexibility to brand the venue with their own corporate colours and/or theme.
The Troxy now stands firmly and proudly with a façade as bright as the entertainment inside.
