ADSA Approved and ADSA Prized – first WE-EF luminaires have been assessed against the ADSA criteria
Words by: WE-EF
WE-EF’s VFL500 series street and area luminaires were the first ones to be assessed under the recently launched Australasian Dark Sky Alliance (ADSA) Lighting Certification program and we are proud to announce that the majority of the VFL500 luminaires have successfully passed the certification process. Depending on the beam distributions they fell into either ASDA Approved or ADSA Prized categories and officially conform with dark sky principles specific to Australasian standards and guidelines including AS/NZS 4282:2019 and the Australian Federal Draft National Light Pollution Guidelines for Wildlife.
WE-EF LIGHTING and ADSA, are both dedicated to the education of best practice outdoor lighting and reducing the growing issue of light pollution. The “ADSA Approved” program, is Australia’s first database for lighting hardware suitable for use in Dark Sky friendly planning and WE-EF are thrilled to be the inaugural participant. The database aims to be a valuable a tool for councils, designers and end-users who are looking at installing new lighting systems or upgrading existing lighting installations that are considerate of the night sky, ecosystems, wildlife and human health and comfort.
