Philip Payne’s SPECTO Automatic Self Testing Emergency Lighting System has been selected for use in The Arts Club in
Mayfair’s Dover Street. Discreet LED downlighters and architectural emergency signage will be linked together to centrally report any problems identified in the automatic routine testing regime (problems such as the condition of the batteries or other functional issues).
Founded by Lord Leighton and Charles Dickens in 1863, The Arts Club contains many elegant Victorian features including a marbled Entrance Hall and original staircase and is a regular haunt for many of
’s creative community. Similar in prestige to other Payne Projects such as the Royal Automobile and Army and Navy Clubs in Pall Mall, the environment at The Arts Club demands that attention be paid to all services that are installed onto such a significant and beautiful building. Usage as an entertainment venue means that on site Emergency lighting must be serviced, tested, maintained and results recorded in order to comply with current regulations - SPECTO significantly simplifies this for the Club.

Part of the Philip Payne service is to visit sites to ensure that statutory requirements are met with minimal impact on contemporary, architectural or historic environments. Experience of many listed building projects ensures compromises are not required to meet modern demands, as any Payne product can always be customised or surface finished to compliment surroundings and, as a result, many specifying architects and designers have unofficially become members of the “Philip Payne Users Club”.
