The Lighting of Iolani Palace | Honolulu, HawaiiW2PL50
Tom Brennan of Eco–Lite Hawaii, was contacted by the Friends of Iolani Palace to see if he had a visually and energy efficient solution to provide wall washing, and façade lighting for the Palace faces. Tom contacted Mag- naray® International to request their expertise. After several discussions, a demonstration was conducted, and 28 of the Magnaray® #W2PL50, at 106 (total) watts were installed. This permanently mounted system replaced 32 portable 400 watt quartz lighting fixtures that had to be set up for every function, and removed afterward. The same quantity metal halide system was rejected due to potential color shifts of the lamps.
Day and night photos show even illumination that enhances the Palace’s features. Energy Savings is greater than 77%, and, based on the total sys- tem of the Magnaray® system, lamp life has been proven to be over 50,000 hours. even though published lamp life rating is listed at 20,000 hours. Units are “instant on” so can be energized when wanted or needed, will not color shift, and have a life expectancy of 25 years.
