Dundrum Town Centre

THE CLIENT

Dundrum Town Centre Management is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Centre. Dundrum Town Centre opened in 2005.

Since it opened, the Centre has won many prestigious awards including International Shopping Centre of the Year (The Global RLI Awards 2006), ICSC European Shopping Centre of the Year (2007) and FBD Retail Excellence Ireland Shopping Centre of the Year (2007, 2008 & 2009). With a turnover counted in Billions of Euro and over 145 million visitors since its opening, the Centre has become a landmark in the South County Dublin Area.


 

THE BRIEF

The brief was to supply and commission an emergency lighting solution that would give 180 minutes of emergency lighting coverage if the main sources of power were to fail to the Centre.

Exit signage and illumination of routes to allow safe egress for members of the public and centre staff were required. The whole system had to comply with the requirements of the Irish standard – I.S. 3217:1989.


 

THE SOLUTION

A self-contained emergency lighting system was chosen. Profile Emergency Lighting fitted individual conversion kits to more than 5,000 lights (including specially designed exit signs).

On-going project maintenance

Profile Lighting and Power have maintained the emergency lighting in the Town Centre since the Centre opened. Our team of dedicated service engineers keep the lights going and the centre safe for staff and visitors alike.


 

KEY FEATURES

One of the key features of a self-contained emergency light is that it is independent. A local failure or global system failure will automatically cause the emergency light to operate. As long as the mains supply to the light is energised, the emergency lighting conversion kit is kept fully charged and ready to work.
