Bat Crazy

At Gemma Lighting, we’re just bats about bats! Spookily, October is officially Bat Appreciation Month, and this week specifically is Bat Week!

Bat Week/month is an international, annual celebration designed to raise awareness about the need for bat conservation.

Bats are amazing creatures that are vital to the health of our natural world and economy. Although we may not always see them, bats are hard at work all around the world each night – eating tons of insects, pollinating flowers, and spreading seeds that grow new plants and trees.

Our Work Ethic

At Gemma Lighting, we are members of several professional organisations and are working closely with local governing bodies, environmental agencies and local authorities to ensure the artificial lighting has minimal ecological impact.

We also have an in-house lighting design and engineering team to guide and advise our clients on requirements and suitability. Working together we can help our clients to deliver the right light, at the right time, in the right place.

Our Project Solutions

All of our Warm White street lights, as well as a selection of our amenity lights and post tops are compliant with Dark Sky’s recommendations.

To help our clients further understand, we have added a ‘Bat & Insect Friendly’ logo to our datasheets to identify suitable products.

We offer a range of colour temperatures including 3000 Kelvin as standard, a requirement for the Dark Sky Approval scheme. 2700 Kelvin and 2200 Kelvin can be supplied up on request, and we also offer single spectrum LEDs, such as Red, to make our lights suitable for areas of conservation and wildlife.

Due to all our luminaires being made in the UK from our Portsmouth factory, we are able to provide bespoke solutions with short lead times to aid with conservation of not just bats, but bugs, insects and turtles too.
