Elation LED solution for Sheraton HoustonThe hotel specializes in wedding receptions and cultural weddings
USA - The Sheraton Houston Brookhollow Hotel is an all-purpose hotel that recently refreshed its meeting and banquet rooms with a dynamic lighting scheme that includes decorative colour looks from Elation LED Flex Tape, a high-output yet energy-efficient solution.

As with many hotels that keep a close eye on overhead costs, energy savings was at the forefront of the new design but because the hotel specializes in wedding receptions and cultural weddings, system designers Louis Kong Architects sought a product that offered more than just the typical ambient lighting.

Jay Cid of Elation rep firm PSLP (Professional Sound and Lighting Products) introduced Louis Kong Architects to Elation Flex LED Tape, thin and flexible RGB LED tape with 40mm centres that can be cut to any length and easily installed no matter the size or shape of the space. After Jay provided on site demos, Louis Kong Architects chose the Flex LED Tape for its versatility, high output, low power consumption and pixilation effect.

Easy to install and setup, Flex LED Tape provides the hotel with an easy and cost effective solution for simple colour washing, effects and pixel mapping possibilities. Nearly 1000 feet of Flex Pixel Tape is mounted in the ceiling covers and sidewall hallways of the various event rooms and colour matched with recessed Acclaim Color Ray MR colour changing LED fixtures, also mounted overhead in the hallways. The result is a new lighting system that accentuates the architectural features of the space while allowing the hotel to customize lighting to any event

The new lighting system is controlled via four Elation Art SSC lighting controllers. The low-maintenance 1024-channel Art SSC control solution fits in well with the installation's low energy requirement because it uses minimal power as all operating and programming is done through a web interface.
