Our Concord brand has over 50 years of experience creating beautiful spaces through elegant lighting solutions. It offers an innovative wide portfolio for applications that require the highest standards of lighting performance. Our Concord portfolio boasts with multiaward winning products designed and crafted in Europe in our St. Étienne and Newhaven factories. Based on in-house expertise and laboratory testing, branded components and carefully chosen materials, Concord offers versatile solutions with high efficacy, low flicker, excellent glare control, uniformity and comfortable light levels. Concord luminaires give you the ability to customise with variants to fit in different ceiling types, match colours and comply with various configurations.
Optix, as a flagship office and education luminaire family has now become part of our best in class Concord branded products.
Office & Education: a human centric approach
As a manufacturer Sylvania supplies extensive ranges of Concord and Sylvania branded luminaires with innovative lighting control and optical solutions for various professional lighting application areas. Lighting impacts health and mood and can enhance capacity for learning and working. When lighting office and education spaces we take a human centric approach, reducing negative elements such as eye fatigue and headaches for the sake of well being and productivity. This puts focus on the optimised light levels, high colour quality, low glare and flicker to create better learning and working environments.
LumiNature: Natural light recreated
Our versatile Concord Optix range has versions aiding compliance with the latest Well Building Standard, offering real Human Centric Lighting options with either Tunable White (2800-6200K) or Neutral White (4000K) colour temperature. Concord Optix Lumi HCL Tunable White and Lumi 4000K fixtures are the best-in-class products offering product design and two HCL options depending on office environment and budget. LumiNature is controlled using SylSmart Standalone or Connected Building for full optimisation and tunability.
Light for a productive building
Increased efficiency and low operational costs have important roles to play within both office and education spaces, challenging us to continuously innovate and develop ranges that make lighting contribute to energy saving in the long run. The modern office should be connected to both broader business drivers and the people within it. As a solution Concord Optix is available with SylSmart lighting control technology enabled versions. SylSmart is ideal to save installation cost and complex cabling schemes, whilst offering a simple wireless control system for new or retrofit applications.
The Smart office
The SylSmart Standalone enabled Optix luminaires deliver advanced lighting control solutions to help you maximise energy savings and user comfort without the drawbacks of traditional lighting control systems. This wireless and central controller free system is aimed to make lighting controls simple for smaller applications such as meeting rooms, classrooms and corridors. Easy to install, easy to program.
Maximum control, minimum installation cost.
Concord Optix offers SylSmart Connected Building enabled options too. It is a ready-to-go, open standard, luminaire integrated control system for floor-wide and building-wide use.
It is a
• pre-configurable operating system. It allows for maximised energy efficiency and dramatically accelerated, disruption-free installation.
Lighting intelligence made easy.
The heart of Optix
Our goal when developing Optix was to create a high performance, high specification modular product range focusing on the requirements of offices, education and seminar room environments, data centers and other circulation areas. The heart of Concord Optix is the high-performance glare controlled optical unit. Using state of the art LEDs combined with high performance optics, the Optix family delivers high efficiency and excellent glare control at the same time. The modular architecture allows for customisation to meet different ceiling size and aesthetic requirements. Product dimensions and the various number of lines help optimise costs, lumen output, efficacy, glare rating and aesthetics.
Our Concord Optix range offers several solutions for office and education environments. The family is available with multiple choices for optical solution such as modular reflector, flat Micro Prismatic (MPO) diffuser and asymmetric reflector. The modular reflector type optical version is available in two finishing colours to match application aesthetic needs. All these types meet UGR <19, while using aluminised finishing <200cd/m2 luminance and UGR <16 glare level can be achieved. Due to the modular design of the reflector this solution can be built in a wide variety of bodies. Dependent on the application customers can choose standard or linear ceiling recessed, surface mounted and suspended versions. Mixing different mounting types of luminaires the requested single lighting scheme can be created by the user. The flat Micro Prismatic (MPO) diffuser as an optical solution can be used in surface and suspended applications. The robust but light body with high performance glare-controlled optic is a perfect solution in education environments such as the asymmetric reflector version.
