Local Urbis Axia 2s
The Axia 2 LED lantern was selected to re-light the roundabout above the A38 dual carriageway at Findern in late 2017. These replaced various 135 W SOX / 150 W SON lanterns that were attached to 10 m steel columns.
Where the new column positions fall in front of the crash barrier (which was also renewed as part of these works), the columns are passive-safe, owing to the roundabout's 60 mph speed limit.
Such is the length of these lanterns that they are probably not that much shorter than the 135 W SOX lanterns that they replaced.
The identification label on the lantern's underside states that the 48 LEDs (two clusters of 24 LEDs) employed in this lantern are running at a combined total of 151 W, which should produce sufficient lumens for a 'C2' lighting class (the 'U' prefix is, simply, to identify this as an Urbis lantern).
The new columns are also 10 m in height.
The two LED clusters are surrounded by heat sink webbing around their sides and front.
