CD & M Lighting appoint Kemps for Mega Theme Park

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Kemps Cold Cathode is chosen to illuminate the fa├žade walls to the entrance of the largest indoor theme park in the world!

Kemps are proud to have been involved in the record breaking construction of the new Ferrari World theme park, the largest of its kind, located next to the Formula One racetrack in Abu Dhabi. This contract was procured through Faisal Jassim Trading LLC and the installation was completed in September 2010.

Reflecting Ferrari's colours, Kemps installed over 500m of their Red and Yellow Coveline Cold Cathode lighting in the entrance area creating a striking impact for their client CD&M Lighting Design. Although the timescales were tight, Kemps were able to deliver the material to site within the agreed deadline, allowing the installation to happen in time for the second Grand Prix and the official opening of this futuristic new attraction.

"It's really amazing. You can see uniform wash light with the right intensity between the GRC panel slots. We wanted this "wash" effect and that's the reason we decided against LED, in favour of cold cathode. Using Cold Cathode provided a more even brightness and gave a smoother all round effect" Baiju Chaliyil, CD&M Lighting Design. Thanks also to Bill Johnson also of CD&M Lighting. Installation was supervised under the supervision and guidance of Kemps Abu Dhabi based, Project Manager.
