One of the World’s Largest Outdoor Lighting Projects Features Super Spacer® TriSeal™

by Guest Blogger

Super Spacer® TriSeal™ is helping to light the way for London commuters and tourists crossing Finsbury
Avenue Square to Liverpool Street Station. The $2.8 million project is made with double-glazed lighting units covering 215 square feet of lattice. Known as Project Light Box, the installation was designed by Maurice Brill Lighting and was installed by Artistic Licence.

Wayne Howells, managing director of Artistic Licence, researched companies that could provide the most reliable and up-to-date technology for the light boxes and ultimately chose Quanex for its professionalism, long guarantees and warm-edge technology.
According to Howells, “A unique project like this has to be done right. From the beginning, the technical support at Quanex was excellent. Someone was always available if we had questions.”


The square is one of the world’s largest exterior lighting projects using color-change LEDs. Over 650 separate glass units are used to display more than 100,000 LED lights, all 5.9 inches wide with five different lengths to give ultimate effects ranging from 1.64 feet to 6.5 feet. The LEDs are made up of primary colors, but a computer controls color intensity producing 16 million different shades. To add to the interest, the square changes color each night.

Project Light Box has earned many awards since its inception, including the 2004 Winner of Exterior Lighting by the Lighting Industry and Federation, the Light and Design Award by IEIJ and a Highly Commended by FX Award in 2005.
