Budapest & Szekesfehervar
Providing an excellent balance between performance and aesthetics, GE Lighting's contemporary Tetra™ Contour LED Lighting System has been specified for the new headquarters of wholesaler MENTAVILL and the Alkotás Point office building in Budapest, Hungary.
When leading building electrical wholesaler MENTAVILL decided to revamp the signage on its Szekesfehervar headquarters building, the team was looking for a lighting solution that would not only perform well but also reflect the company's corporate identity built on a rich heritage of expertise and innovation.
Similarly, the team behind the lighting refurbishment of the Alkotás Point building, wanted to ensure the high profile building, which is a key landmark for travellers arriving into Budapest from the Vienna and Lake Balaton highways, stood out from its neighbouring buildings with new contemporary edge lighting.
The Tetra™ Contour LED Lighting Systems were deemed an ideal solution in both cases, being suitable for a wide range of architectural lighting including border lighting, open-face channel letters, reverse-halo signs, accent lighting, art and light sculpture, as well as cove lighting.
Results and benefits
The LED system provides advantages for both MENTAVILL and Alkotás Point as the system is up to 40% more energy efficient than a typical exposed neon system. Cool to the touch, it also provides a bright and uniform appearance.
Furthermore, both buildings now benefit from numerous advantages over traditional neon lights including improved energy efficiency, attractive aesthetics, light output, robustness, low–voltage operation, long life, unmatched cold–weather operation and ease of installation and maintenance.
