The 19th of March marks the first-year anniversary of the launch of Project Lumen in Johannesburg - the world's largest LED (Light Emitting Diode) display by ABSA/Barclays.
Project Lumen - ABSA, Johannesburg
Scaff-Tech, contracted to Tiber Bonvec Construction, is proud to be associated with this world-first project featuring the most advanced LED technology used on this scale.
Our rope access teams were responsible for the installation of 2880 x LED screens supplied by Barco (Kortrisk, Belguim) resulting in a mammoth display crowning the 29-story ABSA Tower in Johannesburg.
The dimensions of each façade are an imposing 38 metres long x 17 metres high, presenting full colour messaging visible from kilometers away. 720 of Barco LiveDot TF-20 tiles were installed onto each of the four façades completing the wrap-around display. The LED tiles are configured with brightness optimising features for both day and night display and are rated IP 65 for outdoor use.
Scaff-Tech crews assembled the LED tiles over a period of between 15 and 20 days per facade. In total, an impressive 70,000 accident-free working at height man-hours were recorded on the Lumen project.
The ABSA Lumen project was designed and executed by the Herring Media Group (Glastonbury, Connecticut) for Barclays/ABSA.
A year after its inception, Project Lumen stands proud against the Johannesburg skyline - a world-class landmark on the vibrant African continent.
Specialising in the supply and installation of rigging and access systems for the advertising, media, construction, mining, industrial and film industries predominantly in Southern Africa, Scaff-Tech delivers its mission through a portfolio of interdisciplinary projects.
