Wheelhouse / Bridge

The officers and staff working on the bridge or wheelhouse apartment of a cruise liner are exposed to natural daylight during the day but are also in need of night vision light fittings when the vessels are operating in the hours of darkness. When the ships are docked in a harbor, daylight lux levels are required. This means there is high requirement for special features for light fittings installed in the bridge. Limited space in a marine bridge means that lighting solutions should be compact with low profile designs.


Important factors to consider when choosing lighting solutions for the bridge:

  • Day/night modes (red light).
  • Light distribution/evenness.
  • Colour temperature.
  • Light management system for full adjustability and control.
  • Emergency luminaires.
  • Low maintenance and low power consumption (high energy efficiency).
  • EMC 1 class B.
