Case Study

The Liquor Store, is Manchester’s premier themed cocktail bar and when it came to fitting lighting in their bar, they chose a range of Ansell products. The bar required a range of products from downlights around the main bar and table areas to emergency exit lighting and an emergency bulkhead. They chose several Ansell products from the iCage mini, Watchman exit sign, Owl Emergency Twin Spot and the Eagle 3-in-1.

The iCage Mini Gimbal downlights were chosen to be installed around the main bar and the seating area. Chosen as they are a compact fire-rated downlight, they meant that the bar was compliant with building regulations as well as having a versatile downlight. The iCage Mini’s are compact, meaning they can be installed into shallow ceiling voids, and with the polycarbonate spring clips and extra-large terminals for loop-in, loop-out wiring, they can be quickly installed. Available with seven different bezel options they are suitable for a range of settings.

As well as downlights, emergency exit signs were also installed in the bar. The Watchman LED lithium exit sign and the Eagle 3-in-1 Exit signs were both installed. The Watchman exit sign was installed within the bar, above internal doors, which guides customers to the nearest exit if there were to be an emergency. The Watchman is a slim white steel, LED exit box sign which comes supplied with legend. It is available as either a maintained or non-maintained sign and the LiFePO4 Lithium battery provides improved energy consumption, product reliability and extends the lifetime of the product.

For emergency floodlighting, the Liquor Store chose the IP65 Owl LED Twin Spot floodlight as it is specifically designed for commercial and industrial applications and so was an ideal choice. Positioned high up on the wall, the emergency self-test floodlight will illuminate the space if there was to be an emergency. It has robust white moulded enclosure and polycarbonate heads which can be adjusted and moved into the correct position.

As well as this the Eagle 3-in-1 LED Exit sign was also installed above the main entrance and exit into the bar. It is a modern and slim exit sign and fit in with the look and feel of the bar. It is available as a maintained or non-maintained luminaire and has a self-test option. It is a flexible and versatile product as the one fitting enables a choice of three different mounting options, suspension, recessed or side arm wall mounting.
