Wall Lights for Double Height Atriums
In architecture, an atrium (plural atria) is a large open space, often several stories high and having a glazed roof and/or large windows, often situated within a home or building and usually located immediately beyond the main entrance doors. Atria are popular with designers because they give their buildings a feeling of space and light. What requires skill is the lighting of these spaces at night... These lights should do the job fairly well.
Double height atrium lighting
Atria lighting can be a problem in commercial and domestic settings. In commercial buildings lights are often used for much of the day and may never be switched off at night. This has a major impact on lamp replacement because of the increased hours. Replacing lamps in commercial building can mean bringing in costly and disruptive access equipment and as a result a fitting may be used that can be re-lamped from above the atrium. This works if crawl space is available, if there is no void or crawlspace then lighting with long life lamps should be used together with a provision to make re-lamping easier.
