Taunton Deane Council approached Asbac Lighting for traditional style lanterns and columns to replace the existing corroded metal lantern posts that were originally lining The Esplanade at Watchet Harbour.

The attractive harbour town of Watchet in Somerset is a charming tourist location with a fascinating maritime history. The town was originally built up around the picturesque medieval harbour and today The Esplanade provides a popular location from which to view the colourful scene of the yachts and vessels that line the Watchet Harbour Marina.

Our Fumagalli Range of Lighting was specified and chosen by Taunton Deane Council. This lighting range was the ideal solution for this project, offering a ‘Lifetime Guarantee against Corrosion’. This is perfect when installing fittings near the coast where extreme weather conditions can prevail and there is exposure to saline conditions.

Overseeing the specification and installation of these exterior lantern posts was SSE Contracting and we worked with our Stockist Customer, Devondale Electrical in Taunton, to supply 12 of the Elia LED Classic Style Lanterns with the 3.5mtr Horeb Classic Posts. The fittings were supplied in 56W LED version in 3000K colour temperature to achieve the desired lux levels and lighting effect.

These lantern posts match in perfectly with the existing style of the area and provide an LED lighting solution to achieve significant energy cost savings.

Elia Classic Lantern

The Elia lantern offers a grand size light fitting available with multiple options for installing as a pedestal fitting, wall fittings or on matching lighting columns. Providing classic styling to match surroundings while using efficient LED technology to ensure lighting requirements are met.
