DURBAN, South Africa – To deliver the right light during the 2010 FIFA World Cup event, Schréder Hestia luminaires were specified to illuminate the pedestrian walkways, paths and landscapes at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Schréder's Hestia family of luminaires was chosen in various lamp configurations to meet the stadium precinct's specifications to ensure the correct photometric solution. Hestia luminaires were installed on the access walkway from the beachfront and along Isaiah Ntshangase Road. The luminaires were also placed on the section of road in front of the stadium on Masabalala Yengwa Avenue. Schréder lighting solutions were supplied and distributed by BEKA, which is based in Olifantsfontein, South Africa and is a member of the Schréder Group G.I.E.

Hestia, which is also available in the U.S. and Canada through Schréder Lighting USA, integrates a compact design with high photometric performance and style in street and pedestrian lighting.

Hestia offers the following features:
•Crafted of cast aluminum and glass.
•Designed around the Sealsafe micro-reflector for photometrics.
•IP66 rated to prevent dust and water ingress.
•Impact resistant.
•Dark sky complaint.

Crafted of aluminum and glass, the Hestia was designed around a new miniaturized reflector.  Less space for the optical compartment results in more space for the creative liberty granted to the designer, offering opportunities for new lighting solutions.

The right light is achieved with optimal point-source lamp positioning inside the optical unit, which delivers a higher level of light flux on the ground surface without light pollution and spillage.
The  Sealsafe optical chamber enables the luminaire to sustain maximum photometric performance over long periods of time.
