Emirates Towers Dubai, UAE


A Delmatic system manages and monitors lighting throughout the Emirates Towers complex.

With a total built area of 260,000 square metres, the mixed-use project comprises a 355m, 100,000 sq.m office tower, adjacent hotel tower, and podium shopping boulevard encircled by an 1800 space crescent multi-level car-park and extensive landscaped areas.

The networked system provides various degrees of flexibility and control to suit the requirements within distinct areas of the project - totally flexible individual addressable dimming of each luminaire on the fifty-six tenanted office floors in the office tower, switching of lighting circuits in the public areas of both office and hotel towers, the carpark, shopping malls, exterior and landscape lighting; scene-set dimming in the malls, hotel lobby, public areas and atrium, and scene-sequencing of decorative façade lighting on both towers. Scene-set dimming within the mall interacts with the carpark controls so that specific parking zones illuminate to suit shopping periods as well as occupation of the office and hotel towers.

Virtual wiring software enables office tenants to configure switching and dimming arrangements to suit their office layouts as well as customise their domain through the addition of infra-red devices, sensors, scene-setting, IP telephone & web-browser control.

The Delmatic system integrates with the Johnson Controls building management system via the ISO Lon standard enabling the BMS to monitor status and share timing commands, as well as integrating with security and fire systems.
