Anolis makes at Gold Coast hotel

The Sofitel Hotel, Gold Coast Broadbeach

29 June 2012

Australia - Anolis ArcPad Xtreme LED floods have been specified for a high impact lighting installation illuminating the exterior of the Sofitel Hotel, Gold Coast Broadbeach, Australia. Sofitel is the premium brand properties of international hotel conglomerate, Accor.

It takes just two of the new Anolis RGBW ArcPad Extremes - such is their power and intensity - to fill the full 23-storey high front walls of the hotel with a beautifully smooth, even wash of vivid colour.

The ArcPads replace four previous 1000 Watt discharge lightsources, bringing a fresh visuality to the hotel after dark, which now stands out like a beacon from the myriad of other tall buildings dotting the famous skyline.

For all this illumination, the power consumed by the ArcPads is a mere 580W per fixture at maximum intensity, representing 11 Amps less - or approximately a 65% reduction - across the whole installation.

One ArcPad Xtreme is positioned on a lower roof on the south side of the hotel and the other on a pole on the north side of the building.

The hotel's chief engineer Alan Wallbanks approached Anolis distributors ULA seeking a more eco-friendly solution to bring the hotel alive at night and differential it from all the surrounding skyscrapers. They are also in the process of implementing an energy and maintenance reduction programme across the entire Sofitel resort.

Sales manager Blair Terrace co-ordinated the sale which started with a number of onsite demonstrations.

ULA also supplied a wall-mounted DMX keypad controller, programmed to switch on at dusk. This also enables hotel staff to quickly and easily change colours and states as required for special events and functions.
