How can the best light for learning be realised in historical buildings without detracting from their atmosphere? In a short video, lighting designer Rogier van Klingeren shows a successful example from the Netherlands. The Heilig-Herz [Sacred Heart] church was converted into a school. He planned and implemented a completely new lighting concept for the school.
The result is a school with a unique ambience, thanks to luminaires with excellent light for learning and lighting solutions matched to the (church) space that emphasise the unique surroundings. The solution lay in the combination of standard luminaires from Regiolux with individual lighting solutions from Lichtwerk.
Regiolux presents the SRT trunking system, the latest generation in the Regiolux popular rapid mounting systems. As an alternative to the tried-and-tested SDT system, the SRT trunking system offers optimal conditions to exploit the potential of digital and smart lighting for any requirement in industry and logistics, retail, office and educational establishments. The system offers customised lighting solutions that can be tailored to individual customer requirements to provide more flexible and efficient options than ever before. Equipped with innovative modules and new features, even complex and multi-layered solutions can be implemented cost-effectively.
Perfection in lighting technology and design
The advantage here is that, even with the SRT system, only one mounting rail is required for all applications and types of protection. Both components – the mounting rail and device mount – can be combined as modular components, thus turning two parts into a flexible whole: a device mount with 14 light distribution patterns, numerous luminous flux packages (4,000 to 22,000lm), different module lengths and a range of light colours can be specifically designed for the application.
Perfection is ensured by the finely tuned lighting technology of Central.Line.Optic, which transforms light spots into a light line - with a peak efficiency of up to 195lm/W. Individual.Lens.Optic and numerous diffusers are also available. Here, a newly developed prismatic diffuser with forward-scattering nano-particles ensures outstanding efficiency values and perfect illumination at mounting heights of up to five metres.
Fixed or 100% variable positioning
The device mounts can be positioned in a fixed or variable arrangement in the trunking system. 100% variable positioning is now also possible with system protection type IP54 – an advantage that is particularly useful in production buildings and garden centres. Different lengths can be precisely matched to a customer-specific requirement profile. Extra-long modules (/2250) generate savings during assembly and in the number of components within a system, which is an ideal solution for large logistics areas. Compact function modules (/750) can be scattered with in precisely the right places to enhance the differentiated presentation of goods in the retail sector. Area and accent lighting for every product group in outstanding quality and with excellent colour rendition (CRI 90) provides an infinite array of design possibilities. Various housing colours and three module lengths (/750, /1500, /2250) are available, and can be adapted to the existing store design.
Lighting management – freely selectable levels
Light management is always a crucial factor in the potential to save energy. Regiolux netlife controllers can be integrated into the SRT trunking system in three different configuration levels: the straightforward “easy” level is suitable for individual areas around the building and premises. These standalone systems are easy to install and quickly ready for use. The use of the “flex” radio solution offers more features for different areas, which makes them ideal for refurbishment projects, as no additional cabling is required. Specific scenes and groups can also be controlled via the app. The “pro” system offers the highest level of convenience. Entire buildings can be networked and controlled worldwide with building management systems.
Besides lighting management, smart technologies including indoor navigation, predictive maintenance and monitoring can also be integrated into the system. It is also possible to network different locations and remote maintenance via the Regiolux Cloud. Experts at Regiolux manage the project planning and implementation, right through to commissioning.
In terms of lighting technology and lumen packages, the SRT quick fit mounting system covers the entire range of requirements for a high-performance track system. Regiolux has totally redeveloped the 11-pole wiring for networking and emergency lighting to perform these complex tasks. This makes the trunking light system particularly sustainable: it conserves material, energy and improves the C02 footprint – right down to environmentally friendly construction site packaging. This system uses high-quality LEDs with a long service life and high colour consistency. With a service life of up to 70,000 hours, the lighting system is particularly future-proof and emphasises its quality features.
The new "turas" family of diffuser luminaries from Regiolux guarantees homogeneous lighting in hallways and stairwells. The timeless, flat design and soft, glare-free light also makes the luminaire ideal for foyers and receptions, for health and care institutions, for waiting rooms, and of course for residential buildings too. turas comes in two circular and one square variants. It has an IP40 protection rating as well as integrated insect and theft protection.
The wall-mounted and ceiling luminaire offers graduated luminous fluxes up to 4,300 lm, two light colours and an outstanding efficiency of 136 lm/W for a luminaire with an opal diffuser. Thanks to the optimum, homogeneous distribution of light through individual LED lenses, a small indirect share and a good glare control (UGR 20), it provides a pleasant light. The luminaire is great value for money and is available with sensors, Bluetooth control or an emergency light. It is quick to install and even the LED assembly can be easily exchanged if required.
With the new direct/indirect luminaire series agila, Regiolux presents a slim light line for timeless and elegant office lighting – but not only for offices. The innovative lighting technology of the single micro-louvre means that the luminaire provides high-quality, soft light in accordance with DIN EN 12464-1 for single and double workstations that is almost glare-free. The light line can be installed in a number of different ways – as a pendant, recessed, surface-mounted, wall and panel luminaire – and allows a continuous concept from the office through to seminar and conference rooms, corridors, stairwells and the foyer.
The integrated netlife control technology allows wireless op-eration of the agila with no time-consuming configuration. What’s more, it is also IoT-capable, allowing an economic update to contemporary lighting with modern light management. Excellent value for money, high quality “Made in Germany” and an outstanding efficiency of 150 lm/Watt are further features of the luminaire.
“kayak” is a new office luminaire that sets the scene for a stylish office. It combines efficiency and perfect lighting technology with a floating design. The extremely flat and high-quality concept is by BUSSE Design+Engineering, with the luminaire produced by Regiolux “Made in Germany”. It has been designed as a surface-mounted and suspended luminaire with indirect components but can also be easily realised as a light strip. Despite its flat design, variants with sensors for modern light management and Advanced Services are available.
The luminaire with the latest generation of edge feeding LEDs achieves outstanding efficiency of 135 lm/W. The design is perfect for single and double workstations and fits into any surroundings thanks to the warm or neutral white light colours available. Drivers and components are integrated inconspicuously in the luminaire. It is available in the colours black, white or silver and guarantees glare-free lighting compatible with computer screens, high visual comfort and ergonomic light at the office workstation.
REGIOLUX has added the LED luminaire pirola to its range for the efficient illumination of damp rooms. The sturdy structure with a protection rating of IP65 guarantees safe operation even in difficult surroundings, and its flexibility opens up a wide range of uses. The moisture-proof luminaire can be installed quickly and has intelligent sensor technology – which can also be retrofitted – for presence- and daylight-linked switching for economical and needs-based illumination.
With an amazing efficiency of up to 150 lm/W, savings in operating costs can well exceed 50 percent. Optimum thermal management for the LED modules and a high-performance diffuser guarantee a long service life and very good lighting conditions. The luminaire’s compact format, reliably sealed against dust and splashes, makes it ideal for rooms with higher protection requirements in industry, food service and administration such as bathrooms, commercial kitchens, cold stores, warehouses, production, multi-storey car parks or workshops. In addition, the luminaire has a high impact resistance of IK08. The luminaire can be used as a surface-mounted luminaire for walls and ceilings as well as for suspended and mounting rail installation. Thanks to the twist-fix principle, it can be installed in next to no time – and is suitable for networking in the IoT (Internet of Things).
LED technology can score across the board as illumination for sport and leisure facilities: with high energy savings, low operating costs, a long service life and reduced maintenance costs. Athletes and spectators benefit from a high quality of light and low glare. Information and tips of what needs to be taken into account for the illumination of sports facilities has been put together in a new Regiolux brochure. It can be downloaded for free: Light for sport and leisure
Different sports make different demands on hall lighting. DIN EN 12193 Sports lighting provides a binding definition of the lighting-related technical requirements for every sport. These must be seen as minimum values, which makes the task of illuminating the facilities even more demanding. Especially where there is a variety of different uses, it is worth thinking in detail about the lighting system e.g. whether vertical luminous intensities and mechanical loads such as ball impact are also important. Light control to increase energy efficiency, the renovation and funding of lighting systems and the use of Tunable White technology round off the dedicated brochure.
