Scarborough Town Centre, Toronto, Canada | Highlighter® Cove

Scarborough Town Centre, a 250 store shopping centre located in Toronto’s east end, recently underwent a two-year $62 million dollar renovation to create a modern and fashion-forward shopping destination. Alongside state-of-the-art skylights, the mall features curved ceilings with recessed cove lighting. 614 feet of Highlighter® Cove was installed, GVA Lighting’s newest long run modular LED lighting system designed for architectural cove lighting applications, ideal for projects with limited power feed points. The project was designed by Hammerschlag + Joffe Inc. and specified by Rutenberg Sales. Highlighter® Cove uses GVA Lighting’s proprietary power and control system, INFINITY®, which allows it be installed in exceptionally long runs, up to 366ft or 110m @220V or 200ft or 60m @120V, with a single power and data feed. All components were field installed with allowing for easy customization at the mall. Each LED module snaps into the mounting profile, which was securely fastened to the ceilings mounting surface. Modules were installed and connected end-to-end to create linear runs in the cove ceilings.
