We were approached by the owners of this boutique hotel with a list of requirements that we were only too pleased to fulfil.
Astral is recognised as a market leader when it comes to Audio Visual and Home Automation Systems.
We were tasked to supply Automation and Networking for this entire project. In detail this included lighting control, multi-room audio, control for motorized blinds and curtains, integrated control for heating and cooling and wi-fi networking for 15 luxury apartments including a penthouse
As is normal with our way of working, we were present on this development very early on, since we executed this project from start to finish which includes design, wiring, installing and commissioning of all the systems.
Like the other 14 luxury apartments within this development, we installed and commissioned the Automation and Networking systems throughout this penthouse. The lighting system is of course much larger than the other apartments having double the number of dimming circuits involved. The multi-room system was also extended to 8 different zones. Another upgrade which adds a touch of class was the use of the ARKE range of Vimar wiring accessories throughout the apartment .
Another high-profile project executed together with our sister company Brighter Solutions is the lighting system for the new Luqa Bridge.
The system uses iGuzzini Lighting, controlled by a Philips Dynalite lighting control system.
We are very proud to have been chosen to supply all the 55 luxury apartments in Q2 at Tigne Point with a state-of-the-art Philips Dynalite lighting control system. The systems were installed and commissioned well within the required timeframes.
The client required a large video wall for the new Bortex fashion outlet at the Plaza shopping centre in Sliema.
Our solution was 9 x Philips 55” professional displays in a 3 x 3 configuration. The direct LED displays boast an ultra-slim bezel. A special custom manufactured metal frame was used to house the video wall.
We were contracted to supply a public address system to cover the main exhibition halls, the activity centre, the cot lift, the hub, cafeteria and outdoor area. The system includes a mix of outdoor, wall mount and recessed soffit mount speakers. We were further asked to supply a digital signage system consisting of 15 displays and media players.
The whole idea was to make the new awareness centre as user friendly as possible. To achieve this the client required 4 large interactive video walls each measuring at least 2.4mt x 1.35mt complete with custom manufactured enclosures. Each video wall is made up of 4 Philips 55” displays. The interactive feature was achieved by overlaying PQ Labs Touch Wall over the Philips display and the system is being controlled by 4 Steatite rugged industrial servers
Another project which we are especially proud of. We installed and commissioned the lighting control system for this iconic location at the entrance of the capital city Valletta.
Home cinema is always a particularly rewarding project to deliver especially when the cinema room is a dedicated entertainment area.
In this case we used an Adeo 135″ fixed frame projection screen in 16:9 format and a ceiling mount 4k UHD projector.
Bowers & Wilkins was the chosen brand for speakers. The fronts are the 600 series floor standers accompanied by the HTM6 centre channel speaker, while the rear and effect speakers are the CWM series in ceiling speakers custom sprayed in black. The speaker system is finished off by the active ASW610 subwoofer.
This 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos system is powered by the Denon AVRX3600H surround network amplifier.
