Railway Yard Lighting

Lighting railway yards typically requires high powered, high mast luminaires. Windage, uniformity, ingress protection, corrosion resistance, and lux levels and light spill are some of the key factors to consider to ensure the site is safe to operate on - both day and night - are economical to run, and minimise environmental impact.

Kellwood has the specialist knowledge, design expertise, and the lighting product range to support both new-build and retrofit railway yard projects. Our lighting design team can meet National Rail or third-party specifications.
