LED has represented an incredible, fast moving and game changing technology within the lighting industry, from which forward-thinking companies are developing a vast array of uses.
A genuine equivalent to traditional light sources, comparable to 50 Watt Halogen and even 35 Watt Metal Halide bulbs, has now emerged.
Such systems can mean huge savings, in comparison, long-term but some potential customers baulk or even can’t afford to install top-end LED products as a one-time deal.
International giants Zumtobel are leaders in the field of innovative solutions and components with established brands such as Thorn, Tridonic, ACDC and Reiss in their ranks.
Thorn, Zumtobel and ACDC are standard bearers in Europe, while Reiss manufacturers original equipment featuring luminaries with a higher degree of protection.
Tridonic are established worldwide as designers of hardware and software for systems which include LED light sources, drivers, sensors and management.
Their part in the Zumtobel Group allows them to offer customers across the globe a comprehensive range of products and services.
They can consult on contracting, design, intelligent lighting systems and emergency lighting systems, the latter including turn-key solutions.
One such service is NOW, a contract from which a client can benefit from LED lighting control, monitoring and regular maintenance without the full investment up front.
Project design and lighting renovation can also be taken care of by the Zumtobel Group Services (ZGS), with industrial premises among those that can benefit.
In association with electricity experts Vorarlberger Kraftwerke AG, they kitted out Aluminium GmbH Nachrodt’s (AGN) distribution base after careful planning.
First they revamped the existing the emergency lighting system, with a central eBox supply system and corresponding emergency and escape sign luminaires.
Through a six-year deal, AGN pay a fixed monthly rate for LED lighting that includes the company monitoring the usage. The terms guarantee best quality over that duration.
Eight production halls now use nearly 300 TECTION continuous row luminaires, CRAFT LED high-bay luminaires and SCUBA LED moisture-proof luminaires.
A stipulation of the contract assures reliable illuminance, through between 200 and 400 lux depending on what the site needs.
ZGS claim their new high-bay lighting will mean savings of up to 40 per cent compared to the previous year, while doubling the luminous intensity.
Zumtobel designs can be as much about fashion as function, evidenced by their input on the huge new halls of the Messe Dornbirn exhibition centre in Austria.
Three extra halls have been added to the events venue, which is in Vorarlberg, along with two additional foyers and a seminar room.
Zumtobel were called on to create LED lighting systems for all of these areas, with the halls 75 metres long with 11 metre high ceilings.
Flexibility was a key part of design through the Tetcon Balanced White system, with an 11-pole current conducting section built into its trunking.
It beams out rows of lighting without any visual interruption and the colour temperature can be adapted, to suit any number of purposes.
Zumbotel used its Panos Infinity system for the bright red foyer spaces, featuring elliptical entrances and LED downlights which are recessed into the ceilings.
The fittings blend into their surroundings as they made are custom made in the colours of the building, which are black and red.
The power supply, controls and connection to the emergency lighting system are integrated, but the sources and optics are easy to access and can be replaced as needed.
The system can be adapted through any structural changes, too, so should stand the test of time even if the Messe Dornbirn continues to expand.
Zumbotel have earned a reputation for bespoke systems, at a time when LED lighting systems are in high demand. Financially, they make just as much sense.
