Sill lighting up Roman baths
24 Jan 2008 . BY
Sill Lighting has been specified by The Heritage Services section of Bath & North East Somerset Council for the Roman Baths in the city of Bath.

The decision was made in a move to replace life-expired lighting and conserve energy, whilst at the same time improving interpretation and making a visit to the site a more dynamic experience for daytime visiting and evening events.

The scheme is part of a larger project to improve conservation and interpretation at the famous site World Heritage Site in the city centre.

Sill devised a solution which had minimal effect on the fabric of the site, the lighting also being designed to be robust enough to withstand the high humidity generated by the naturally hot water that flows into the Great Bath from the thermal spring nearby.

The company’s compact 020 series projectors were installed and these can be used to produce different optical distributions. Sill was able to incorporate the lights into the site’s existing wiring points, causing minimal disruption to the area.

The light fittings were grouped and mounted directly onto extended gear enclosures using pan and tilt mounting brackets, providing both vertical and horizontal adjustments. Each group consisted of three or four wide beam 35W projectors, while selected groups had an additional switched narrow beam 70W fitting for highlighting specific displays or artefacts.

As a result of the new installation, the total electrical load of the lighting has been reduced from over 12,000 watts to just 2,760 watts.

The efficiency of the lighting and the longevity of the scheme are also said to have been greatly increased with the new installation.
