EGOLUCE

Today, Egoluce stopped by our office to present their updated decorative products.

The Newton Family:

The Newton family is their architectural line including varieties of track heads and mon-opoints available in different beam spreads (13°, 24°, 38°, 58°, and 63°). We really liked the Newton slim mono-point and Newton spot recessed looks and the 2 color combo (Black+ silver, Black+Gold, or Silver+Gold) in Newton Flat. (the track system is under process to be UL listed)

Spook:

Another interesting IP67 rated, walk over recessed fixture was the Spook. Being cool and not transmitting heat from the surface, makes this fixture a great option for pools and spas. Also, it works without failure in very low temperatures.

It is recommended for installation in concert and wood constructed surfaces. (for better water drainage and sturdy installation)

Wanda:

A rotatable tube shape LED profile IP67 with stainless steel terminals, 120° light distribution. It's available in 13, 25, 50, and 75 watts. 2700K, 3000K, and 4000K. It should be installed max 10 meters from the feeder to prevent the power drop. (7-10 days delivery)

Lancia:

Series of suspension lamps for diffused LED light (node free) with an extruded aluminum profile, opal polycarbonate diffuser. Available in 50m, 70m, 100m, and 150m diameters. The light source is in the inner part. The Lancia Tonda offers 2700lm/meter, 90 CRI, 10,000lm output in 150m model. It is available as single or multi configurations (mix and play). Also available in chrome finish or brushed gold.

Q Light:

It comes in 50cm and 70cm length square shape as standard and larger custome sizes. The front can be customized in different prints and patterns (they are all hand made). The have a gold leaf and mirror front.

  • The LED board size is fixed in either standards and custom sizes, therefore, the light output will be much less in larger sizes.

MoonLight:

The Moonlight is similar to Qlight with different finish options just in round shape.

Wagner

Wagner is primarily a handrail company that supplies handrail lighting solutions. They do the full fabrication in house.

Today, they showed us the components of their Lumenrail system.

Lumenlinear

We first looked at the actual railings. The railings are made to be as seamless as possible, and the fixtures in the handrails are fully wet listed.

This was the first fixture that we looked at. Matte and transparent lenses are available. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT. 5 beam spreads are available. This fixture is IP65 rated.


Lumenpod

The fixtures in Pod family are constructed to be vandal resistant. This fixture is IP67 rated. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT and 5 different beam spread.

The fixture with less curved form has an asymmetric distribution. It creates a clean line of cut-off on the back side.

The second fixture with more curvy look provides a symmetric distribution.


Bantam

This is a nice walkway fixture. They will sell just the fixture for other applications. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT.

The 10° forward throw in the presented sample is the smallest the can get. It's a great option as a bollard lighting in ground.


  • Wagner will assist with layouts and meeting local code requirements. They are also releasing a design guide to simplify the specification process.
  • The Lights get attached to the rail on site.
  • The average price is $275/sqft for everything.
  • The Integral driver is a new option for rail lighting.

UFO

Today we had UFO come in to discuss their fiber optic and LED products.

Fiber Optics

All of their fiber optic systems consist of three components:

The light source can consist of a color wheel, RGBW, or dichroic sources.

They offer end lit or side emitting products. The side emitting products come in two different types: side sparkle and smooth solid core.

 

The end lit products are typically made from glass while the side sparkle are typically made from food grade plastic.

 

  • 90w is the strongest fiber optic product
  • 20w products will be close to the 50w-75w tungsten market

For the end lit products, you are able to changes lenses to change the beam spread of the product.

These products do have a bend radius limitation which is important to consider when using it around corners. A large positive of these fiber optic fixtures is that the light source is the only point of maintenance.

The fiber optic products can be used for a multitude of applications. The end lit products are great for pools, museums, ceiling stars, and much more. The side emitting (the side sparkle particularly) is great for sensory systems in the medical field. The side emitting is also great for pool lighting.


They also showed us their LED products.

They had spot and wash fixtures. The wash fixtures slide into the fittings and the spot fixtures snap in to a magnetic system. The optics of these fixtures can also be changed. The following sizes are available.

  • 45mm
  • 95mm
  • 1250mm
  • 2450mm

These fixtures are not wireless. There is 1.6 meters of lead wire available. Finishes include: black and silver. The magnetic ball will always be silver regardless of finish(as shown below).

They also mentioned that they do have LED down lights (as shown below) which are essentially an LED version of their fiber optics system.

Holm Lighting

We got a chance to see a new steplight designed by Holm Lighting called the Nook. It’s a large recessed steplight with a unique feature that lets you adjust the distribution in the field. Right now their optics only include forward throws but they are in the process to develop wider distributions. The Nook can also be installed higher on the wall as an up light or in a box to become a bollard.

5Dec/170

Sternberg

Sternberg Lighting has a new fixture they are releasing called Flight.


They have developed a cooling rod system that helps the heat sink and allows them to use less material bringing the cost down from what it typically would be. There are two sizes available with varying mounting bracket options. Flight utilizes the soft view lens technology found in other Sternberg fixtures providing a highly efficient glare control lens option.
