ONE A – STORM SYSTEM

Today, One A visited our office to show us their product line.
One A is based in Denmark. It is a primarily residentially focused line.

The concept of the One A  Strom System product line is that everything fits into one pre-construction piece. This piece can then be used to recess in a gypsum ceiling, millwork, or it can be surface mounted.

  • Bronze
  • Brass
  • Nickle
  • Silver
  • Gold

Millwork fixtures only come in three finishes- white, black, or grey.

One A tends to use Zaniboni housings for their fixtures. All DLs are compatible with SORAA light engines. Standard Adjustable with driver and housing is approximately $350 DN.

They also have a recessed lamp socket and a pendant connection that supports up to 20 lbs.

One A also works with Backlight so that any of the Storm system components can be embedded into a Backlight panel. This includes downlights, adjustable fixtures, dropped lenses, and more.

The system is looking to be listed by the End of July.

Here are a few more of the products that were shown:

 

Speaker
Illuminated Towel Hook
Step/ Path Light
