Burj Khalifa New Year’s Light Show

Feb. 13, 2018

McLaren kicked 2018 off strong, working on the display that broke the Guinness World Record for the largest light and sound show on a single structure. McLaren reviewed the structural components of an LED strip system designed to mount to the exterior vertical stainless steel “fins” of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, in Dubai, U.A.E. The LED system was installed on all the fins on the southeast side facing the lagoon, totaling more than 17 miles. The structural components consisted of an aluminum extrusion which housed LED modules plus cable runs for power and control cable, as well as mounting brackets that attached to the existing vertical fins on the exterior of the building.
