CASE STUDY — Tanger Out­lets The Walk is the largest out­door outlet mall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This very promi­nent mall spans over 3 city blocks con­sist­ing of about 100 stores includ­ing bou­tiques and restau­rants. It is the only outlet mall in Atlantic County. The mall opened in August 2003 and has become Atlantic City’s biggest shop­ping des­ti­na­tion per­fectly located near beaches, board­walk, casi­nos and resorts. Lining the streets and paths of this promi­nent, clas­si­cal mall is the Selux Urbi. This fix­ture, com­monly used on the city streets of Berlin, Ger­many, brings a his­toric, Euro­pean charm to the urban space of The Walk.

In the summer of 2019 Selux was approached by Arris Engi­neer­ing Group, Sean Paul Williamson, to pro­vide a direct LED replace­ment retro­fit kit for the Selux Urbi. This orig­i­nal metal halide fix­ture was between 150W and 250W. They were look­ing to replace the old MH with an LED retro­fit kit as well as replace­ment lenses that had yel­lowed over time. They wanted the modern per­for­mance LED upgrade that would increase effi­ciency and decrease energy con­sump­tion while improv­ing light levels and reduc­ing future main­te­nance cost, in con­junc­tion with keep­ing the his­toric, dis­tin­guished look of the present fix­ture.

The LED retro­fit would have to be cre­ated, as Selux did not have one designed for this fix­ture already. Selux US con­nected with Tom Herrin from Illu­mi­na­tions and Selux head­quar­ters in Ger­many to for­mu­late the design of a retro­fit kit. After the quan­ti­ties needed for the devel­op­ment were final­ized, Selux requested that one of the exist­ing fix­tures be removed from the orig­i­nal appli­ca­tion and sent to the fac­tory so fur­ther devel­op­ment and con­cepts could occur. Mock-ups of one retro­fit assem­bly was com­pleted and installed on site to eval­u­ate. The con­cept was accepted by Atlantic City.

The New retro­fit module was designed as 95W LED and ulti­mately the owner decided to retro­fit all of the exist­ing Urbi’s. This new upgrade will increase effi­ciency and decrease energy con­sump­tion while improv­ing light levels and reduc­ing future main­te­nance cost. The retro­fit was engi­neered to allow for easy removal of the exist­ing globe and instal­la­tion of the new LED globe with a spun alu­minum hous­ing to min­i­mize light pol­lu­tion and pro­vide a more effi­cient, sus­tain­able light­ing approach to road­ways and walk­ways.

The result was a new neck­lace of light­ing along the boule­vard cre­at­ing a wel­com­ing prom­e­nade to Atlantic City and the pedes­trian shop­ping at The Walk.
