Metals and finishes

For the metals and finishes on BEGA luminaires we place the highest standards of material aesthetics, processing precision and surface protection. We achieve extreme resistance to corrosion through the most careful sealing of surfaces.

The requirements we place on the resistance of our lacquers lies far above the usual industrial standards. The BEGA quality standard is subject to continuous further development and to monitoring of our manufacturing criteria.

To achieve the best protection against corrosion, all components made of aluminium are pre-treated and passivated. The components are then powder-coated in our standard colours graphite and silver. Some luminaires are also available ex stock in the colour white. Custom-made products are also available in every other RAL and DB colour. Luminaire poles are supplied at catalogue prices in every RAL and DB colour. Components made of stainless steel, copper and cast bronze are available in finishes suitable for the application.

Interior luminaires · Metals

In the production of our luminaire parts made of metal we use various metals, alloys and also cast metal parts. Aluminium, stainless steel or brass are used. The material is always suitable for the application or appearance of the finished luminaire. Details of which materials we use to manufacture a particular product are provided in the product descriptions in the luminaire catalogue, in the instructions for use or on the Internet.

Interior luminaires · Finishes

Each metal is treated according to its properties, enabling the finishes to reflect the natural character of the metal. Luminaire parts with the following finishes are either manufactured from the respective material or they are electroplated. In view of the large number of individual parts, exact details of all the materials used cannot be given on each page. However, we will be glad to provide you with the exact material designations should this be important for a luminaire’s use.

Interior luminaires · Enamels

Many luminaires are available not only with metallic finishes but also with lacquered metal finishes, e.g. in the colours white RAL 9010, light grey RAL 7035 or white, similar to RAL 9003. After these luminaire parts have been pre-treated, they are primed before receiving a high-quality enamel as top coat. Depending on the material used to manufacture the luminaire parts we can also supply the luminaires as custom-made products in other finishes and colours. For enquiries concerning colours, please refer to the RAL table.
