Light Charts – Latitude Kinsale
Each of our charts can be made for anywhere in the world, based on the maritime chart.
Our Light Chart Range
Nautical charts are always a great attraction to anyone with an interest in the sea. The Coastal Light Chart transforms any chart into an active and decorative piece of art. A key piece of information that you will find on any chart is the flash sequence of the lighthouses and buoys.
Latitude Kinsale pioneered the technology that can display these flash sequences accurately in such a way that it adds a new dimension to the nautical chart thereby making it very attractive, eye catching and suitable to hang in any location from homes, holiday homes and commercial applications such as hotels, receptions, restaurants and bars. Using fibre optics and a microprocessor, the features of a maritime chart are now brought to life. Each lighthouse and navigation buoy is programmed to flash in their prescribed colour and sequence. A familiar cruising area is now brought to life in an authentic quality product. The wall-mounted Chart is an ideal eye catcher in any location.
Every chart is unique and hand-made.
The Chart is block-mounted and the face of the chart is protected with a 100 micron laminated protective film with UV properties. This is a glare-proof mounting that is made to last. No glass or acrylic is used, therefore making the lights clearly visible even in natural daylight.
The coastal Light Charts are made using any chart, anywhere in the world. A chart of your favourite cruising area can be made into a light chart. In addition, a chart can be personalised with a blue light at the location of your house or business. All charts are hand constructed in Ireland and come ready to go with a universal power adaptor and mounting hooks. All charts are guaranteed for one year. The electronic circuit use LEDs as a light source, which are guaranteed for 100,000 hours.
Latitude Kinsale prides itself on innovation. Over the years we have developed and included features like the highlighting of focal points with a blue light and anti-glare properties. Also available is the option to combine charts where we will literally cut and paste different charts to show the detail of a home port, yet putting it in perspective with its surrounds. Another development is the addition of marine clocks such as a barometer, a clock, tide clock and a thermometer. It is a fitting environment to display the key weather attributes, combining multiple technologies to create a truly unique Light Chart display.
