West­ern Tech­ni­cal Col­lege is a two-year voca­tional-tech­ni­cal school located in the Mis­sis­sippi River Valley of South­west Wis­con­sin, serv­ing 8 regional coun­ties and enrolling over 5,000 stu­dents. Cleary Court­yard is located at the center of this beau­ti­ful campus. The court­yard serves as a great gath­er­ing place for stu­dents with an out­door cafe and amphithe­ater. A linear path was used through the pas­sage, fea­tur­ing a pave­ment con­stel­la­tion hon­or­ing those who con­tributed to the court­yard.

Selux lights were used through­out and along the path. The MTR LED Column and Notch Bol­lard LED were used for its effi­cient path­way illu­mi­na­tion. Both are suited to enhance the com­fort and secu­rity of the campus court­yard, walk­ways and build­ing entry­ways.

  • The MTR is a family of diffuse exterior luminaires that includes Round and Square Columns and Bollards. The MTR refractor optic incorporates the light-bending properties of a prism, directing the light precisely where you need it most, with minimum intensity at planar viewing angles. The MTR bollards are installed below or near to eye level in environments where minimizing glare is especially important such as car parks or pedestrian walkways. They mark out entrance areas and paths, act as a means of orientation, and at the same time can help to structure a space. This is cleverly achieved through their unique design, using MTR refractors which reduce glare and enhance visual comfort, while also reflecting a small amount of light upward, providing torso illumination for recognition and depth perception and enhancing the sense of security and visual comfort.
  • Use Notch to complement your landscape and architecture - the unique design allows for unobtrusive yet efficient lighting. The completely sealed optical chamber provides an IP65 and IK10 ratings, so Notch can be used even in the toughest applications.
