Relevancy of the caves lighting in regard with tours

From prehistoric times to the present day
In prehistoric times the issue of lighting of the cave had been easily solved - each had a hearth. Daylight penetrated either from above through the hole ceiling or from aside on the inlet side. If there was lack of light people used a torch light. So primitive people resolved, first of all, the problem of their own security.

Since the electrification of first caves in the middle of the 19th century, aesthetics and lighting problems have been solved by the monochrome fixed lighting.

specificity of our offer

Minimizing an affect over the cave’s ecosystem:

  • In this series there are spotlights with different radiation spectrum. Blue-light and IR spotlights were additionally developed in order to prevent undesirable flora growth.
  • Cree and Osram LEDs are used in production, that provides stable light flood and stable light temperature.

Comfort at excursion and recreation use:

  • The series involves the ability to manage lighting of objects: to adjust turns, altitude, angle of illumination (an important point of consumer comfort).
  • GT series has spotlights with fixed different colors light flood and DMX-512 controlled spotlights.
  • In conjunction with the proposed media controllers and acoustics with protection IP-68 GT series allows to organize full of light and music shows in the caves.

Minimizing an affect over the cave’s own climate.

  • Low power supply of spotlights – 12-56V.
  • Compared to other light sources LED spotlights for cave lighting have lower heat radiance and lower than gas sources flicker.

Adaptation to aggressive environment of the cave

  • The spotlight housing is made of stainless steel.
  • Action taken to аvoid electromechanical corrosion of materials.
  • In circuit solutions the most reliable elements are used. Number of electrolytic capacitors is minimized, in some models there are no capacitors at all.

Balcarka cave

This cave is situated in the northern part of Moravský kras (Moravian Karst), in picturesque part of Suchý žleb (Dry Valley) close to Ostrov u Macochy in nature reserved area called Vintoky. It is breathtaking labyrinth of corridors, domes and underground temples with gorge and full-colour stalactitic decoration. The cave begins with a huge entry hall of Balcarova skála (Balcar’s Cliff). After that follows an artificial tunnel coming into small area where could be found very attractive colorfulness of sinter decoration. First stop is in a room about 10 m high called Wilsonova rotunda (Wilson’s Rotundas). The bigger one has beautifully modeled circular gorge covered with sinter cascades.

Charlotte cave

With its 587 meters, the Charlotte cave is one of the longest show caves in southern Germany. The cave, discovered in 1893, was named after the Queen Charlotte of Württemberg. The cave’s guests will get a memorable and lasting experience and the subsequent short tour can give you a sneak peek at the fascinating world of stalactites. Long ago, the cave was created by the force of the water. Then the cave arose in many thousands of years in the halls and corridors аs a true marvel of stalactites. One of the first mammals, who visited the cave were probably bats, but certainly a cave bear used to be a regular inhabitant. The bear left at several places in the cave smoothly polished rock surfaces, because it cleaned their coat of dried mud and bugs here. Ice Age hunters, as in the neighboring Lonetalhöhlen were not detected in the Charlotte cave.

CLAMOUSE CAVE

A beautiful cave, full of strange concretions can be found alongside the Gorge d’Herault between the villages of St Jean de Fos and St Guilhem le Desert. The cave is still being washing out by the river that runs along the bottom of it and during the winter months part of the cave is closed off because the chambers are full of water. As well as the normal stalactites and stalagmites, you’ll find some other formations in the grotte, including aragonites, spiky concretions that resemble sea urchins and helictites that look like a jumbled mass of spaghetti. The cave was discovered in 1945 by the Montpellier Caving Club, but the name Clamouse dates back a lot further. In Occitan Clamouse means a woman who shouts or screams – the noise the cave’s river makes when it floods. Legend says that a young shepherd used to send sheeps to his poor mother via the underground river. One day it was the shepherd’s body that made its way downstream to his mother, and in her despair she wandered in the cave screaming for a long time afterwards.

POSTOJNA CAVE

Postojna Cave is the most famous and most visited cave in Europe (located on the territory of Slovenia).

It consists of 20 km of galleries, halls and chambers. It is a classic limestone karst cave. A labyrinth of corridors created by nature has been equipped with railways in the late 19th century, a decade later the first electricity and lighting had appeared in the cave.

Today tourist have a unique opportunity - to see the whole underground world of caves through the windows of a mini-train and appreciate the natural stalactite decoration. In addition to the stalactites there are a variety of drips of various shapes, colors and age.

GT series customers

GT series cave lighting The unique decision for customers who value the complex of ergonomy, life time and characteristic compliance with recreational cave lighting projects

The caves are valuable monuments of nature and require a special approach in the equipment, including lighting. Caves are complex nature monuments, which include geological environment, geomorphological forms, hydrogeological and hydrochemical characteristics of water, mineral world, particularly sedimentation, climate, distinctive flora and fauna.

The target consumer groups and decision-makers:

  • Ministries and departments of the environment (experts of the technical department, the engineers of the project development of the cave).
  • Ministries of Tourism (experts of the technical department, the engineers of the project development of the cave).
  • State natural reserve funds (experts of the technical department, the engineers of the project development of the cave).
  • Private companies own or lease caves and dungeons (technicians and engineers, in small companies - top management).

Highlights of the cave equipment

(especially the lighting one) have a certain effect on the fauna, microclimate of the cave, fauna and sometimes on its structure. The equipment of the cave should be carried out taking into account its characteristics and should strive to make as little as possible changes in the internal environment of the cave.

Utilities (water pipes, electric cables, junction boxes, transformers, waterproof spotlights and elements of lightshow) should be located in the side galleries, masked or have a decorative shape. This factor affects the design of the construction of cave lamps.

Necessary lighting equipment in a cave:

  • basic lighting (maintenance areas);
  • signal light (a signal to the beginning or the end of the session to the public);
  • additional lights (decorative light);
  • emergency lighting must exist in a case of full blackout and helps find a way out when the main lighting is off;
  • spotlights and equipment for organization of decorative lighting, design solutions and media show (light and music performances).
