The ROBUS VEGAS LED Flexi Strip was recently chosen by enable Ireland for their newest care centre in Lavanagh Cork

221

The Lavanagh Centre provide a wide range of valuable services for over 600 children with physical and sensory disabilities and their families living in Cork. The seven-acre site in Curraheen includes a Children’s Services Centre with assessment and treatment facilities, a hydrotherapy pool, meeting rooms, preschool supports, an accessible playground and family facilities. Also, on the site is Lavanagh House, a children’s respite house, where children with disabilities can develop their independence skills, while giving their families a break.

Enable Ireland were determined to create a colourful, child-friendly interior to provide a welcoming space for the children and their families who attend the new centre for a range of therapy, social and educational services. The lobby is responsible for visitor’s first impressions, so it was an important area to consider. As you can see from the picture the ceiling of the lobby is long and wide with circular feature sections protruding out from the ceiling. Enable Ireland wanted a product that would transform this space by working with the existing features. They visited their local wholesaler to look for a suitable fitting for the lobby area – something fun to fit with the circular features. The wholesaler suggested ROBUS VEGAS LED Flexi Strip lights as they could be cut to length and installed around shapes effectively.

The ROBUS VEGAS cut-to-length service was utilised by the contractor Emerald Electrical, who were working with Enable Ireland on this project. The contractor provided the project specifications and dimensions to the ROBUS Customised Conversions team who then cut, soldered and prepared the ROBUS VEGAS LED Flexi-Strip for the project and arranged delivery. The product was recessed underneath the main circular features and around the perimeter of the room. As you can see from the final image, the ROBUS LED Flexi-Strip worked perfectly and met the vision Enable Ireland had for the lobby.

The whole project was completed using:

  • 48 metres of the ROBUS VEGAS LED Strip 9.6 W 4000K in total
  • 3 of the VEGAS 100W, 24V, IP20 constant voltage driver, non- dimmable
  • 1 of the VEGAS 250W, 24V, IP20 constant voltage driver, non- dimmable.

This project is a prime example of how versatile the new ROBUS VEGAS LED Flexi-Strip lighting range is and how their Cut to Length Service can take the hassle out of measuring and installation. ROBUS were proud to have been part of such a rewarding project.

ROBUS have also recently launched the VEGAS Calculator which also helps to make projects involving LED flexi-strip easier than ever. The VEGAS Calculator is a step-by-step online tool which helps users to quickly generate a list of parts needed to complete lighting projects using ROBUS VEGAS LED flexi-strip.
