About light and illumination

Different types of luminaires will be presented in the following. For all models, numerous sizes and outputs are available. With this variety, practically all lighting tasks in public and private architecture can be solved.


  • Recessed ceiling luminaires

    Recessed ceiling luminaires are suitable for general illumination. Their light ranges from wide beam to very narrow beam. With their downlight characteristics, they are also suitable for accentuating distinctive areas, for example entrances, points of sale or for focusing on works of art. These luminaires are ideal for large, high rooms. They are mounted directly in suspended ceilings. With concrete ceilings, cast recessed housings are used. In conjunction with light and building control systems, recessed ceiling luminaires can develop their full potential. Thanks to high protection classes and modern LED technology, maintenance intervals are reduced to a minimum.

  • Ceiling luminaires

    Ceiling luminaires and recessed ceiling luminaires differ mainly in the work involved in installation. The installation of recessed housings in a concrete ceiling for recessed ceiling luminaires requires work at the early planning stage. The luminaires must also be chosen as early as the construction phase. Whether for ceiling luminaires or recessed ceiling luminaires, the illumination characteristics and the integration in control systems are identical.

  • Recessed wall luminaires

    Just like recessed ceiling luminaires, recessed wall luminaires are part of the long-term structural details.
    For installation in brick or concrete walls, the installation of recessed housings must be planned as early as the construction phase. For plastered walls, we recommend the use of plaster frames. Light from the walls can vary enormously. Wide beam luminaires help you to find your way. These can be dimensioned on the small side. Luminaires with directed light are used for illuminating pathways and surfaces, in the ground area as well as for the ceiling. As inherent parts of architecture, recessed wall luminaires provide structure and define the room. They provide safety in areas where increased attention is required.
    Since the body of the luminaire is fully installed within the wall, this luminaire causes no risk of accident. It is therefore suitable for use in subways, entrances, stairs and corridors. It is ideal for integration in light and building control systems.

  • Wall luminaires

    Wall luminaires can be found both indoors and outdoors. Their light can be unshielded, shielded or directed. They illuminate areas in front of buildings, pathways in and around buildings, entrance areas, corridors and staircases. Wall luminaires provide structure and accentuate wall surfaces. They can be arranged individually or in rows or as a group. This type of luminaire is ideal for use as emergency lighting.
    The work involved in installing wall luminaires is significantly less than for recessed wall luminaires.

  • Pendant luminaires

    The possible applications of pendant luminaires are extensive. They can be found, for example, in halls or in religious buildings for general illumination, often with unshielded light. With very high spaces in which the illumination of the ceiling areas does not play a role, pendant luminaires with downlight characteristics are used. Arranging smaller pendant luminaires in groups or rows gives structure to the room, creating clear zones. Here, the light is frequently directed downwards and used as functional illumination. Pendant luminaires are design elements whose form and nature frequently go far beyond pure functionality.

  • In-ground luminaires

    These luminaires can be used for many different applications. On account of their robust design, in-ground luminaires are frequently found in public areas. All light characteristics are possible with light from the ground – from location lights to adjustable floodlights. A very high protection class, IP 68, offers the option of exposing the luminaires to flooding continuously. A water column of up to 10 m is possible.
    The luminaire design made of stainless steel and cast stainless steel is so robust that the luminaires can be driven over with pneumatic tyres. The pressure load can be as much as 5000 kg. Thanks to the use of modern LED technology, maintenance intervals can be reduced to a minimum.

    The properties and applications of rectangular in-ground luminaires are comparable with those of round in-ground luminaires. Depending on the design, pressure loads of up to 5000 kg are also possible here.
    The linear form of the luminaires is ideal for the large-area illumination of façades or advertising spaces. The rectangular design offers the option of producing the luminaires in larger dimensions as well. This means that sizes of up to 1000 x 1000 mm can be designed, with a load-bearing capacity of 1000 kg. Their protection class of IP 68 withstands continuous flooding with a water column of up to 10 m. Such luminaires can divide up and structure pathways and squares. Arranging them in groups and rows creates spectacular light scenarios. It goes without saying that integration in a light control system is feasible.

    We recommend in-ground floodlights for illuminating vertical surfaces and for focusing on buildings, architectural details, sculptures or trees and plants. The illumination of information boards and advertising spaces from the ground is also possible without having luminaires in the way. In-ground luminaires can be controlled using a building management system.

  • Floodlights

    Floodlights are available in numerous outputs and sizes. This type of luminaire is flexible in installation and is highly versatile. Floodlights are ideal for placing the focus on architecture and landscape elements. Subsequent installation is easy as a supplement to an existing lighting system. On account of the many different mounting options, floodlights can be used on poles, on façades, on roofs or on the ground. The light can be adapted to individual needs through diffuser disks, louvres, shields and coloured discs. These luminaires can also be integrated in a light and building management system.

  • Underwater luminaires

    These luminaires are exposed to extreme conditions. Temperature fluctuations and long-term operation under water place special demands on design and material. Underwater luminaires are used in swimming pools, water features and ponds. Modern LED technology results in very little maintenance of theses luminaires. Colour effects, which are particularly popular in spas and health areas, are possible using a light control system. The light output of some models is sufficient to illuminate sculptures, façade elements and buildings from below the water.

  • Bollards

    These luminaires accompany pathways and defined areas. Areas are structured. Their light ranges from unshielded to directed flat beam. The light graphics on the ground surface are often used as a design element. In public areas, this type of luminaire has to be particularly robust. With bollards, a graphic and clear form language that harmonises with the surrounding architecture is ideal. Integration in a light and building control system is recommended for these luminaires. Additional floodlights, sockets as well as passive infrared sensors and emergency lighting can be integrated into bollards.

  • Garden and pathway luminaires

    Garden and pathway luminaires round off the garden architecture. You can select from various light distributions to suit your purpose. They provide orientation in walking zones and they accentuate flowerbeds and terraces. They can be permanent or portable, depending on the required installation site.

  • Light building elements

    In architecture, these luminaires are design tools. Their graphic form can be integrated in the architecture and can even support the architecture. Light building elements are particularly suitable for structuring surfaces. Their characteristics range from unshielded to asymmetrical flat beam light distribution. Light building elements meet the standards for illuminating roads, pathways and squares.
    To complement light building elements, bollards have comparable design characteristics to allow a harmonious ensemble of architectural lighting. Integration in a light and building control system is recommended.

  • Pole-top luminaires

    Pole-top luminaires have a wide range of outputs. They are particularly suitable for illuminating streets and squares. This type of luminaire is suitable for dividing up and structuring outdoor spaces. The light distribution is symmetrical or asymmetrical, and often also adjustable. Pole-top luminaires can be found most frequently in streets and pathways. With these luminaires, the light distribution is flat-beam in order to guarantee optimum illumination of the useful areas.
    The safety aspect plays a large part in road lighting. Standards with respect to the degree of illuminance and uniformity therefore apply here. Pole-top luminaires are usually arranged in rows or in groups. Cost-effective operation can be ensured by means of a light control unit. The LED technology cuts maintenance to a minimum and ensures that such lighting systems can operate for many years.
