The Freemason’s Hall on Great Queen Street is the official headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and the main meeting place for Masonic Lodges in London.
Work on the grade II listed art deco style building began in 1927 as a memorial to the Freemasons who tragically died during the First World War and currently houses the grand temple, 21 lodge rooms, the library and museum, as well as board and committee rooms.
Within the museum visitors can view the charitable organisation’s vast collection of objects, prints and engravings, as well as items belonging to famous and royal Freemasons that include Winston Churchill and Edward VII.
In 2016 a large collection was added to the museum and Reier Showcases were chosen to supply their display cases. When fitting out each display case with lights Reier opted to use UFO’s magnetic track LED lighting system – Attracta, due to the versatility that it offers.
Any number of the Attracta LED light fittings can be applied to the extruded aluminium track, and easily moved, slid or removed without interference from wires or cables thanks to the fittings magnetic attraction to the track.
Additionally the magnetic ball joint present in each of the fittings also provides 360° rotation and 180° tilt, allowing museum staff to point the light in almost any direction. As and when they want to change their displays, they can simply rearrange the positioning of their fittings and the direction of light beam to suit.
