Barrisol Lighting Installation
The department store Selfridges has invested £300m into an architectural makeover of its flagship London store. The redevelopment of the iconic Oxford Street site includes a grand new entrance and an increase in retail space of more than 10 percent, to about 580,000 sq ft.
Barrisol Welch was employed to create a series of unique Barrisol lightbox ceiling features to be positioned above the stores’ main escalators.
The project required 6, 3D lightboxes with no shadowing from the internal framework and strict stipulations for the LED output to reach specific CRI requirements.
Barrisol Lightbox Manufacturing & Installation
We built 6 clear polycarbonate lightboxes at our UK workshop. We then manufactured 6 aluminium composite lids to hold the CRI 90 LED strip lights, and secured a BS 350/11 aluminium track around the lid, ready for the boxes to be transported to the site.
The Barrisol stretch sheeting was created with 3D welds in the corners so that it could be wrapped around the polycarbonate boxes and fixed into the track at the top of each Barrisol lightbox.
The 6 lightboxes were then installed and the LED control trays connected to the supply already in place.
