The underwater projectors BRONZE FC HELIOS, entirely made in Italy by DTS, were chosen to illuminate the Sheikh Zayed bridge in Dubai.

DTS, Italian company of design and manufacture of lighting solutions, has been selected as a supplier for the Dubai Water Canal waterfall lighting.

Dubai is the city with the most intense urban development and the latest project in chronological order was inaugurated on November 9; it is the iconic Dubai Water Canal: an extension of Deira Creek, linking Business Bay to the Arabic Gulf.

One of the main visual attractions of the complex is the giant 160 m water feature of the Sheikh Zayed Dubai, a technical marvel that turns at night the bridge into a waterfall shining with the eye-catching magic of dynamic color lighting.

For a project of this scale and complexity, the choice of the technical partner could only fall on Magical Water Fountains company, specializing in top level water feature projects realized all over the world, from Europe to the Middle East, from America to the Far East.

Magical Water Fountains chose HELIOS BRONZE FC underwater LED projectors by DTS for this one-of-a-kind lighting project.

240 HELIOS BRONZE FC unites were installed.

The HELIOS features perfectly fit this demanding task: full IP68 protection rate; body made of bronze, to withstand the salt water environment; high quality RGBW color mixing with an endless palette of colors; extreme brightness.

These underwater projectors are an example of the DTS high-tech products which, thanks to its internal R&D Department, is able to satisfy every kind of need for lighting design. Moreover, its reinforced structure makes this reliable product for long-term use.

The customer requests to create a water feature that did not exist anywhere else in the world.

So, at night, the bridge is starting an amazing illumination with smooth colors chosen by Road & Transport Authority.

As the waterfall was engineered with the possibility to control individually each one of the 80 water pumps we installed, we can open and close the water feature as a curtain for the entry and exit of boats.

Each HELIOS BRONZE FC offers a wide choice of colours and the whole system can be used to create colorful patterns during special events.

DTS is proud to be part of this innovative architectural project that renews the image of the city of Dubai and that once again confirms the quality and reliability of products Made in Italy.

The 2017 Excellence Awards will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the Products of the Year on June 12 in New York.
