Bat Friendly Lighting

Products and lighting design services to minimise disruption to bat habitats

How can Kellwood HelP?

We understand that bat conservation requirements can often be inhibiting on the progress of a project. Our team at Kellwood has the experience to provide appropriate lighting solutions to deliver the required illumination, while minimising environmental impact.

Unobtrusive lighting preserves neighbouring wildlife habitats, creating harmony between nature and humanity. Artificial illumination should be as inconspicuous as possible to protect the environment; careful selection of controls, dimming, and correlated colour temperatures should be employed to ensure that luminaires do not provide unnecessary or harsh light.

Downward Illumination reduces upward light and glare that may cause disturbance and also maintains dark buffer zones where lux spill could force migration. Our consultants can advise on the best authority guidelines.

Kellwood’s design team can also provide contour plans detailing the extent of illumination for planning approval applications.
