Pulsar have stayed true to their philosophy of creating products that can be integrated into a wide range of design applications.

The company has nearly 50 years of experience within the lighting industry and their roots remain in Cambridge, where production is based, but their work can be seen all over the world.

LED lighting has been at the forefront of their technologies since 2003, when they installed their own solution on the front of their factory.

The 12 Chroma panels ran 24 hours day, seven days a week from then on and are believed to be the world’s longest lasting LED installation.

When last recorded, they had clocked up 13 years and 10 months of continuous activity, which surpassed a whopping 115,000 hours.

An additional 21 metres of the Chroma Strip 2 product were installed in 2005 and they too have clocked up over 100,000 hours of operation.

Architectural and entertainment sites around the globe have benefitted from Pulsar’s LED knowledge, not least the World Trade Centre in Bahrain.

The 50-floor twin tower structure stands tall in the Manana skyline and will be 10 years old this year, located in the financial and diplomatic district.

Pulsar were enlisted to help revamp the facade of the building and created a long-lasting solution which can be fully controlled, with minimum maintenance.

The products must withstand searing heat, humidity and salt water and, since 2013, over 200 custom made ChromaFlood 50 Tri-Colour LED fixtures with customised brackets have done exactly this.

Not only are they practical, the output gives the effect of a sparkle into the night sky and has proved an inspiration to others in the industry.

Closer to home, the Cosmopolitan Tower in Warsaw, Poland, saw Pulsar redesign ‘the red ceiling’ at the behest of the company’s chief executive officer.


The 44-storey skyscraper has 236 apartments, each with floor to ceiling windows, and a recreation area at level four.

The red ceiling, which can be seen from both the recreation area and from street level, is where Pulsar’s expertise proved effective.

The existing system was insufficient due to the location, colour choice and beam angle of the lights. The result was hot spots, poor colour rendition and high operating costs.

The new solution eight Chroma Flood 100R fixtures that where the fittings were hidden to viewers, who only saw consistent illumination of the feature ceiling.

Pulsar also lit up the tower’s exterior atrium in blue, using 12 Chroma Flood 200 fixtures that are capable of producing many colours, which can be changed at the behest of the operator.

The whole system is controlled by Pulsar’s own architectural grade controllers, which are both user friendly and flexible.
