Leisure sector lighting specialist Gradus has showcased an illuminating design solution at the newly-renovated Everyman Belsize Park Cinema.
 
Everyman Belsize Park is one of four London-based cinemas owned by the Everyman Media Group and was the first to be given a luxury facelift as part of the Group’s expansion plans.  Everyman Cinemas are known for quality and style, offering a premium cinema experience whereby cinema-goers are treated to ‘at seat’ service.

As part of the project to renovate the 129-seat, one-screen cinema, Gradus supplied its innovative LED step lighting and row indicators to create a striking visual effect and aid wayfinding.

Gradus’ PVC stair edgings with a white continuous light were used to help customers identify changes in level, inhibiting reflection or glare whilst providing a stylish linear design feature.  The use of slip resistant inserts also ensured a safe environment for cinema-goers by reducing the risk of slips and trips on stairs.

Using low voltage LED technology, Gradus Continuity step lighting features a fibre optic rod, which offers a consistent light effect up to fifteen metres whilst also reducing energy costs.
Completing the lighting scheme, white alphabetical row indicators were fitted to the aisle chairs to help cinema-goers safely locate their seats. The indicators are also available in a numerical or graphic format and in a range of colours. 

Sally Miller of the Everyman Cinema Group said: “Lighting not only creates a safe environment but it also contributes towards the overall cinema atmosphere and customers’ enjoyment. Gradus’ products have more than delivered and helped to provide an eye-catching entertainment environment.”

Steve Gallagher of Gradus added: “Everyman Belsize Park is a perfect example of how lighting can instantly bring a venue to life, whether a renovation or new-build project. The lighting solutions offered by Gradus are used to create a safe yet visually appealing environment, with end-user needs firmly in mind.”

Gradus is the leading UK manufacturer of LED lighting products, combining safety with aesthetics, for use in cinemas, casinos, nightclubs, cruise liners and lecture theatres amongst others.  Gradus also provides full project management service, site installation and management through maintenance and after care.
