Selux

This week we got to drop by Selux to learn more about the company and their products.

Exterior Line

Marine grade aluminum. No screws.

Light Columns. 8" extruded (square or round). Use any head. Modular. Façade Module. Elo is a 6" extruded column.

Bollards

Inula does not have any up lighting and has a solar top option.

Notch has a long, wide beam and is great for high abuse areas.

Post tops. Saturn and Quadro are refractor style. Ritorno is indirect. Olivo is a deeply recessed COB with integral drivers and many mounting options that can tilt and rotate.

Off-grid solar available

Exterior innovations

  • Tritec LED refractor for vertical illumination. Campus, path, or urban settings. Little up light with this.
  • Tritec- symmetric, asymmetric, and wall mount. Components: prismatic ring, hexagonal reflector cone. 100 lm/w.
  • Gen 5 optical silicone. The acrylic plate below is silicone. Cree XHP-70 chip (multi-dye chip). Shield for the back of silicone which looks very clean. Lower bug ratings in terms of glare than others.

All drivers have surge protection- they give extra as well.

They can do turtle code with either and could do dual color temp.
