The Light Fixture Accreditation (LFA) provides objective, third-party certification for luminaires that minimize glare, reduce light trespass, and don’t pollute the night sky.The International Dark-Sky Association Victoria is and the authoritative voice on light pollution in Australia. IDAVic educates lighting designers, manufacturers, technical committees and the public about controlling light pollution. We recognize that the best way to accomplish our goal of protecting and restoring our natural night environment is through the promotion of quality outdoor lighting. To achieve this, we developed the Light fixture Accreditation program to provide objective, third-party certification for lighting that minimizes glare, reduces light trespass and doesn’t pollute the night sky.
One of the only down sides to living atop beautiful Mount Dandenong in Victoria, is the incredibly steep driveways.Alongside a driveway nearly impossible to scale, the owners of this beautiful mansion built a set of stairs by utilising the existing large rocks and adding local stone. With no overhead lighting and a staircase over shadowed by beautiful natural fauna, the best option for lighting was to incorporate it into the handrail.
With the ever increasing value of homes on the Mornington Peninsula, it makes sense to add items that bring a high end feel to any project. With this new home at Safety Beach, Lumorail were invited to supply glass balustrading to the staircase. Even with the walls of the upper level coming part way down the stairs, the open look was retained with the use of stand-off patch fittings and glass.
The $28 million transformation of Bendigo’s Gaol to Ulumbarra Theatre was an exciting and unique undertaking, converting an old goldfields gaol into a stunning modern theatre that seats almost 1000 guests. As part of the works an Illuminated handrail was written into the scope. Somehow, somewhere along the way, the illuminated handrail was overlooked and a typical 50mm round stainless steel handrail was installed to the grand staircase at the front of the building.
Lumorail is proud to have installed a double stainless steel handrail at the beautiful Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo in early 2016.The handrail is illuminated with the Forrest Range of continuous LED lighting to provide seamless light through the center of the main entrance staircase.
Garry Hannah is nothing if not passionate about lighting especially LED. He is also no newcomer to the balustrading industry having served many years across its many facets. All of his experience both hands on and in research and development culminated in the formation of his company, Lumorail named clearly to reflect the area of specialization that he has made his own.
This recently completed home features the Aston Range of LED Handrail around the outdoor entertainment area. The handrail with fully integrated lighting offers an alternative to traditional decorative fixtures while still providing ample light to the walkway.
In addition to atmosphere, safety in your home is often paramount. Lumorail LED Handrails can include an incorporated sensor, allowing your lights to be activated as you approach. With infra-red sensors incorporated into the LED handrail system, the stairs are visible at all times.
Until the advent of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in (relative) darkness. Now, in much of the world, evenings are illuminated, and we take our easy access to all those lumens pretty much for granted.
Set behind high, ornate metal fences, the home is understood to span about 3200sq m, with a grand ballroom, five bedrooms, two kitchens, nine bathrooms and powder rooms, staff quarters and a huge basement garage for a fleet of luxury cars.
