A key factor that every designer considers when creating cabins is how to maximise the use of space. Materials used with the design are constantly being improved to make them lighter, stronger and more durable. All related components need to be developed to be smarter, thinner and lighter too.

British manufacturer Beadlight has worked to reduce the depth of its reading lights to enable customers to fit them into thinner wall panels, enabling them to save space on panel depths and use it other areas.

The Mono CS is the thinnest in the range at an installation depth of 11.5 millimetres with a fixed position light beam. We also offer lights such as the Sirocco S with an adjustable light beam at 12.5 millimetres. These reduced depths allow lights to be installed in areas previously not thought possible, giving designers more flexibility.

While creating the optimum lighting for guests is the most important factor, it is also crucial that the installation process is efficient. Beadlight works with interior designers and installers to ensure that the lights can be integrated into the design easily, offering innovative front and rear fix options to facilitate a smooth and fast installation process.

Cruise and ferry operators should assess their lighting requirements early in the lighting design process. This way they can take advantage of the new technologies and developments to create a truly first-class onboard environment.
