The special lighting system needs of an airport apron.
The architecture of Marco Polo airport speaks clearly with its analogies to the Venetian shipyards and the traditional materials used such as bricks and copper. This is why the lighting concept for the new terminal demanded this clarity.
The light requirements for this project presented a real challenge: the positioning of the masts to the left and right of the Gateway towers was dictated, and as a result, special left and right-aligned facets had to be developed.
A direct light system is unable to meet these extreme light-steering requirements. In addition, each luminaire had to cover an area of 115mx80m with an average illuminance of 20-27lx and a uniformity of 1:2. The reduced glare effect, which considerably contributes to
the visual comfort of taxiing pilots, was also an important deciding factor in opting for a secondary system.
