SUPPORT FOR OUR CUSTOMERS IN COUNCIL

Investing in public lighting infrastructure can be a daunting and costly task filled with technical, logistical and operational elements. Our mandate is to make our customers’ experience world class in excellence and we offer a range of support services specifically designed to achieve this aim. 

Training
Product training in technical and non-technical product and operations designed to assist in the decision making process and in helping non-technical stakeholders understand the technology and science behind lighting.

Design 
We have a fully equipped design team that specialises in roadway lighting design to AS1158/NZS 1158 standard (where applicable) or any required standard for the application. Our design expertise extends to all areas of public area lighting as well as lighting for sports spaces and venues to code specific broadcast standard. Effective design from experienced professionals ensures the right product is not only selected but also installed correctly to achieve the desired performance.

Consultation 
We employ quaified professional lighting specialists who form our infield team of support staff, each of whom is further supported from our Head Office by an experienced after sales and tech support team. Together, they ensure that the needs of each of our customers is met.

Smart Technology
As the ‘internet of things’ changes traditional lighting infrastructure, we employ IoT specialists who can advise on the implementation and benefit of smart technology to ensure that your lighting infrastructure is future proofed.

Local Engineering
In addition to providing solutions from best of breed international brands, we have crafted a range of local street lighting products as well as products for public area illumination all of which are specifically designed for the Australian market and to contend with the unique attributes of Australia’s harsh climate and environments.
