SGM Featured in Color Changing Lighting Project at Kelvingrove

Using SGM's P-5s, director of Teknique Systems Ltd., Tony Kennedy, created a magnificent color changing lighting system on the exterior of the most popular museum in Glasgow; the beautiful Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

"We chose to add 18 SGM P-5 fixtures because we wanted to use a quality LED fixture that was reliable, energy saving, and compact," said Kennedy, who worked on the installation together with City Building Glasgow.

With over 40 years of industry experience, Kennedy designed a new cost-effective lighting system with a wireless pre-programmed control system, enabling the staff to easily color change the building for special events.

"Our vision was to upgrade the existing lighting to a new modern LED system that would allow our client to keep the lighting color temperature the same as the old fixtures, but have the advantage to be able to color change the building for any special events or anniversaries at the touch of a button," explained Kennedy.

Located in Glasgow, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland's most popular free attractions, featuring 22 themed galleries with a variety of exhibitions and displays. For this iconic building built in 1901, Kennedy underlined the importance of remaining sympathetic to the magnificent architecture and choosing the appropriate lights. "We have been using SGMs P-5s since they first launched, and have found them reliable, versatile with various lens options, compact, bright, and easy to use with the wireless capability on board. SGM also offers a great service as well as product back up here in the UK should we ever require it," stated Kennedy.
