Ensuring sustainability for urban and architectural lighting can be challenging. There is the same pressure to minimise energy usage but the protection of local ecosystems and dark skies must also be considered.
Light has a big impact on the nocturnal ecosystem. It should not only avoid disturbing nature and the night sky, but should also be energy-efficient, to save resources and support sustainability. Careful control of the luminous flux makes sure light is only used when and where it is needed.
At Thorn, we've developed technologies such as NightTune and VLD to ensure our customers can meet these goals.
A number of outdoor products from Thorn also bear the International Dark-Sky Association's Fixture Seal of Approval. This accreditation demonstrates those products' dark-sky friendly lighting status and demonstrates our commitment to help customers achieve their goals of protecting dark skies and nocturnal environments.
