Thorlux SmartScan luminaires can deliver energy savings in excess of 70% compared with conventional technology. Integral sensors monitor ambient light and presence, control output to the correct level, dim and switch when there is sufficient daylight and illuminate only when the area is occupied. In the office areas the existing fluorescent luminaires were replaced with Hylines. The Thorlux Hyline is a high quality edge-lit luminaire suitable for a myriad of ceilings including SAS 120, 130 and 330 types. The homogeneously lit fire-retardant nanoprism diffuser aids compliance with LG7 and concealed air-handling vents allow airflow of up to 40 litres per second without any loss of performance.
