Product Development & Lighting Design

Our products are designed to support energy efficient schemes and to reduce energy consumption in buildings. We use lightweight, compact, electronic gear, which is up to 30% more efficient than standard gear. Our continued development of single source multi-functional and directional luminaries, reduces energy consumption by replacing the need for a secondary light source or installation.
