Anti-vandalism and vandal-resistant light fixtures for safe and secure public places

Lighting is key for the safety of our everyday life. It is also required to deter crime and identify potential risks. In many public areas, however, light fixtures are being damaged by vandals. Whether committed by young teens throwing rocks or criminals looking for darkness, vandalism can represent a huge cost for our society.

For many years, public utilities and municipalities have been using Airfal luminaires to help eliminate the problem of vandalism.

What is an anti-vandal luminaire

A vandal-resistant luminaire is a luminaire with mechanical properties that allow it to be protected against break-in (anti-tearing, difficulty to disassemble – specially shaped screws for example, strong mechanical resistence ….). These luminaires are intended for specific applications such as public passages or penitentiaries.

A lighting installation subjected to vandalism or external aggressions can have many consequences:
– Insecurity for people and properties due to the interruption of light,
– Additional financial costs due to additional maintenance and renewal of investments,
– An environmental impact related to the reduction of the product life cycle.

For many years, Airfal has developed anti-vandalism luminaires and lighting solutions that reduce the cost of maintenance in buildings and public spaces, because a luminaire is an investment and not a consumable product.

The resistance to vandalism of Airfal products is based on:
– The resistance to shocks caused or accidental,
– The resistance to pulling (anti-tie),
– Secure opening (special screws).
