Winnersh Footbridge



Designplan supplied 22 stainless steel custom light fittings for this footbridge in Winnersh near Reading. Linking two sides of the local train line the footbridge is as much an architectural feature as it is a functional bridge.

Richard Ede, Electrical Consultant from building services firm Foreman Roberts, selected Designplan as the lighting supplier: ‘Even though the design of the balustrade changed half way through the project. Designplan were able to adapt quickly and supply a tough product that perfectly suited the overall design.’

The Designplan fittings were tailored to match the width of each balustrade strut, achieving an unusual vertical lighting pattern.

Designplan calculated the appropriate photo metrics in order to achieve the proper standard of lighting needed in public areas. Rated to IP65, the fittings are completely sealed against the elements and are vandal resistant.
