Luceco has recently supplied over 2,500 LuxFrame luminaires to Gargash Hospital, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Gargash Hospital is UAE’s first female-owned, multi-speciality, tertiary care hospital with a primary focus on women’s health and childcare. The facilities comprise of two basement levels, a ground floor and two additional floors offering numerous hospital beds.

LuxFrame is a minimalist LED luminaire designed with simplicity in mind for suspended ceiling grid applications, enabling the creation of imaginative lighting with cost-effectiveness and energy efficiency in mind. The LED luminaires brought spaces alive with colour and light whilst still creating a relaxing atmosphere supporting patient sleep cycles and enhancing the healing environment.

Communal spaces, corridors, patient bedrooms, examination suites, nurse stations and consultation rooms were illuminated with LuxFrame, designed to deliver functional lighting in an architectural yet cost-effective manner.  Both high and low lumen output LuxFrame luminaires with dimmable options were used with IP rated LuxPanels supplied for Laboratory areas and Mosi, a robust circular utility bulkhead, used in stairwells.

Installed around the ceiling tile, LuxFrame provides an interesting lighting effect whilst maintaining the integrity of the ceiling.  As with other LuxPanel products from Luceco, LuxFrame offers over 50,000 hours of operational life with no maintenance, available with DALI dimmable drivers and with emergency back-up variants.

Lighting plays an important role in healthcare, improving both the patient experience and the staff’s ability to provide high levels of care. Not only a sustainable choice, but LED lighting can also enhance the care environment and reduce costs by saving energy and improving operational efficiency. The latest LED technology from Luceco provides a relaxed atmosphere for patients and a dynamic working environment for staff.

Constructed this year, Gargash Hospital now demonstrates excellence in gynaecology, obstetrics, paediatrics and general wellbeing, providing emotional support as well as patient education. Approximately 2800 LED luminaires were supplied by Luceco to Gargash Hospital in partnership with Energy partner Ali Haji Abdulla Awazi Gargash and Gargash Lighting Systems.
