The concept of environmental safety covers more and more technical solutions, and artificial lighting is no exception. At the first glance it seems improbable that outdoor lighting can affect the environment. But it turns out that luminaires that produce blue and ultraviolet radiation can invade the life of insects, attracting them and depriving of night rest.

The European specialists of BL GROUP developed the insect friendly technology in order not to harm the insect world, which is an important part of the global ecosystem. These solutions are based on luminaires with a color temperature of 1800 K (amber), that do not produce harmful blue and ultraviolet radiation. Recently, the insect friendly technology became available and conjures up all sorts of luminaires of boos trademark. Now it is already in demand by our European customers, primarily in Germany. Among the objects where such luminaires were used are the parking areas at Europa-Park in Rust and Mercedes dealerships in Pfungstadt and Speyer.

The most relevant project is the lighting of the parking area of Edeka supermarket in Buzek (State of Hesse, Germany). The luminaires of NAICA L series were installed at a height of 10 meters. Thanks to peculiar optics and the precise installation of the lighting poles the experts of BL GROUP’s German division managed to create a uniform light distribution over the large area.

The solution is not only completely harmless to insects and the environment as a whole, but also provides the parking area with a distinct air of amber fairytale!
