DW Windsor Launches DarkSky® Approved Heritage Lanterns

UK-based lighting manufacturer DW Windsor has released DarkSky-approved versions of its most popular heritage luminaires, expanding its DarkSky Lighting range to support its Light Responsibly® initiative.

The launch includes DarkSky versions of its popular Windsor, Strand, and Ely lanterns and marks the first time traditional British heritage-style luminaires have been certified by the International Dark-Sky Association (DarkSky), a globally recognized authority on light pollution.

These new products demonstrate the British manufacturer’s commitment to tackling light pollution as part of its Light Responsibly initiative, launched in 2023 to promote responsible lighting practices.

The DarkSky Approved program offers impartial, third-party validation for lighting products. To be formally certified as DarkSky Approved, luminaires must demonstrate that they have an upward light output ratio (ULOR) of less than 0.5% or 50 lumens, have a maximum correlated color temperature (CCT) of 3000K, and have the ability to dim down to 10% of their maximum light output.

“At DW Windsor, we are passionate about designing lighting for places, people, and our planet,” says Alan Grant, Design & Development Director. “With the launch of these new DarkSky Approved products, we’re underlining our commitment to eliminate light pollution, protect biodiversity, and help preserve the night-time environment.”

Windsor, Strand, and Ely join a growing list of DW Windsor luminaires that are now DarkSky Approved, including its award-winning Garda illuminated handrail, distinctive Pharola DS bollard, and innovative post-top luminaire, Daytona.
