Fairmont Royal York

TGL Introduces Filament LED to pass Standards of the Fairmont Royal York

Standing in the very heart of downtown Toronto for over 90 years, Fairmont Royal York represents one of Canada’s great historic luxury hotels featuring vintage décor and luxury.  The conversion of the Royal York Hotel to LED posed one of our industries greatest challenges at the time as the selected led lamp needed to maintain the vintage décor and when diming the LED lamps needed to dim smoothly and become warmer as they dimmed.  At over 1,400,000 square feet in size, ceiling heights of 30ft and old analog diming technology this LED project posed many challenges.  Many proposals were rejected in the past as they failed to meet the high aesthetic standards set by the Fairmont Royal York.

To solve the problem TGL custom manufactured several LED lamps specifically for the Fairmont Royal York, TGL LED Filament lamps were introduced to the Fairmont Royal York and not only did they pass the high standards but the results with respect to aesthetics and savings became one of the greatest LED retrofit success stories.
