The Taphouse Bar and Restaurant has been a welcome addition to the County Londonderry village of Bellaghy, Northern Ireland, having opened in 2018. With a family friendly atmosphere and a welcoming space to dine and enjoy a drink, the Taphouse also caters for larger celebrations and private functions.
The venue recently expanded its premises, building a brand-new function room to accommodate its events. To ensure the appeal of the space and therefore its success, it was important to create a functional yet relaxed atmosphere with the right ambience. The lighting also needed to be customisable, so the needs of the space and the clientele could be catered for.
After a meeting with the Taphouse’s owner, a range of solutions from LED lighting and smart products specialist Aurora Lighting were selected. Aurora Lighting’s Bluetooth RGBCX LED strip has been installed, alongside a number of Bluetooth RGBCX GU10s. Thanks to the flexibility of these solutions, and ease of control through a simple Bluetooth connection, staff at the venue can easily control colour and brightness. This is done through a remote control or the Aone BLE app.
The LED strip and GU10 luminaires both offer control over colour temperature between 2700 – 5000K. This delivers a huge range of what the light can be used for, from daytime events that require more light, to evening gatherings where warm, inviting light is preferable. The solutions are sold with a 3-year warranty and a L70 of 25,000 hours, ensuring they can remain in place for many years while providing peace of mind.
The lighting products were supplied through Electrical Wholesale Express, Magherafelt; one of Aurora Lighting’s trusted wholesaler partners.
The installation was incredibly straightforward, with everything required available from the wholesaler. Aurora Lighting’s solutions combine high technology with simple installation, making them the ideal choice for projects that need high quality results in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Ed Denny, National Sales Manager for Aurora Lighting, said: “The Taphouse is a wonderful village bar and restaurant that attracts customers from far and wide. The new function room has the potential to host a plethora of events and celebrations, and the lighting needed to accommodate this. The Bluetooth solutions from Aurora Lighting deliver flexibility, outstanding light quality, and an easy installation, which made them a great choice for this project.”
