The municipality of Pečovská Nová Ves has decided to illuminate all pedestrian crossings in the municipality. The new LED pedestrian crossings have brought the citizens of the village a significant increase in safety when moving on the roads.

The actual construction of the pedestrian crossings was preceded by a visit of the design team of LED-SOLAR, s.r.o. to the site of the future installation. Carrying out a site survey and measurements are key to designing a technically correct lighting system for each crossing. High-quality pedestrian crossing technical designs require the consideration of several factors in the design process.

LED pedestrian crossings - key factors for design

These are mainly the width of the road, pavements and possible boarding areas, the possibility of placing columns separately for each direction of travel of motor vehicles, the availability of electricity supply. An important factor is also the determination of the class of the road and the assessment of the public lighting system located in the vicinity of the pedestrian crossing. Consideration should also be given to any obstructions that would pose a risk to the proper functioning of the pedestrian crossing. This may be vegetation, such as tree canopy lining the road in the vicinity of the proposed crossing. These could screen the light from the luminaires located on the booms. Advertising equipment or various conduits running across the road at the point of installation may also be a problem. Once all the necessary data has been collected, the designer can proceed with the actual preparation of the project documentation.

The project documentation must take into account the lighting and technical calculations. For LED pedestrian crossings to be equipped with special luminaires from LED-SOLAR, s.r.o., the light-technical calculations are supplied free of charge by the manufacturer as part of the sales support for its products.

The luminaires designed for pedestrian crossings from the design workshop of LED-SOLAR, s.r.o. are characterized by several specific features. The radiation characteristic of the used optical system of the renowned world manufacturer LEDiL is asymmetric. In principle, the LED luminaires on the booms must not tilt. The illuminating surface of the luminaire shall be parallel to the illuminated road surface. The correct beam angle is thus ensured by the asymmetric optics themselves.

LED Cross SII luminaires with special asymmetric optics were used for the crossings in Pečovská Nová Ves.
