Drive-over LED in-ground luminaires

For illuminating vertical surfaces

The design of these in-ground floodlights makes it possible to fully illuminate a vertical surface, e.g. a façade, from the ground up to the lower edge of the roof. The lower limit of the light distribution is a straight line, without the usual “light cone”. The luminaires are mounted in a recessed housing on a foundation that absorbs the pressure loads. The foundation, including drainage, must be laid by the customer before installation.

The luminaires can be driven over by vehicles with pneumatic tyres. The luminaires must not be used in areas where they are exposed to horizontal loads caused by braking, accelerating and changes of direction.

The luminaire luminous flux and the luminaire connected wattage quoted in the table may change as a result of technical progress. On our website you will find data sheets with information on each luminaire concerning not only the current values but also the LED service life and the luminous flux in relation to the respective colour temperature.

Illuminating vertical surfaces from the ground up

The predecessor system of these new floodlights used discharge lamps as their light source and illuminated many prestigious structures around the globe. BEGA has decades of experience in the area of in-ground luminaires and LED technology, which have allowed the development of this new luminaire type in peerless quality. With careful and professional installation, these floodlights will perform their lighting tasks during very long operating times.

The in-ground floodlight is perfectly suited for applications in which an illumination of vertical surfaces is needed and where the luminaire should be installed at ground level and have drive-over capabilities. The cast aluminium luminaire is mounted in a stainless steel installation housing on a foundation that absorbs pressure loads of up to 1000 kg. The LED colour temperature can be set between 3000 K and 4000 K and the luminaire is DALI controllable.

The following table serves as a project planning aid. The arrangement of the luminaires can be derived from the size of the object to be illuminated and the required degree of illuminance.
