“This is a crucial time for external lighting and the decisions we make now will have far reaching implications.” Rob Warner

Crime and community

Research carried out during the 1990s showed that criminals do take account of potential levels of security and location features, including escape routes and visibility to witnesses when assessing the risk of being caught. It is generally accepted, therefore, that good lighting does have a positive impact on the crime rate and this is enhanced by the use of  white light sources.

By providing good colour rendering and enhanced uniformity, white light sources have a significant role to play, particularly when introduced into residential estates.

Philips WRTL´s range of lanterns offers the availability of the most up-to-date light sources for maximum impact with the greatest economy.
