Oficina Técnica Buigas – Types of fountains
Most of the fountains we build for ornamental purposes include lighting in their design. The fountains relax the atmosphere by day and provide a beautiful light and water show at night.
Design of illuminated fountains
Our luminous ornamental fountains are static fountains, more striking for their lights at night than for any other element.
The design of this type of fountain must take the following into account: the shape of the fountain, the points you want to illuminate and the shadows you want to create.
There’s the option of installing static lights or on the other hand, lights that change colour and intensity to create different lighting sequences.
Illuminated fountains for squares and cities
The fountains, just like any other urban element, must match the architectonic design of their surroundings. So, if the square where the fountain is located has a style based on organic lines, the design should follow these lines for better integration with the surroundings.
Nonetheless, due to its characteristics, this type of fountain is usually found in the middle of roundabouts, in the centre of large squares or in discreet corners of parks and gardens.
Construction and maintennace of illuminated fountains
When we install these light shows we always take into account three fundamental aspects: itself.
The hydraulic installation, which includes the elements for propulsion and circulation back to the tank for treatment and subsequent recirculation.
The electrical installation, which will control the correct functioning of all the elements included in the fountain
