Performance and sustainability in perfect balance
A versatile family of luminaires for any space.
SkyCore is a family of indoor luminaires which include the SkyGlo, SkyPro and SkyDome.
Whether you need to achieve low glare compliance in offices, create softly lit circulation areas, or to light stimulating environments like school classrooms, SkyCore can provide the solution.
Thorlux has designed SkyCore luminaires with the principles of circularity and sustainability in mind. Modularity, maintainability and reduced waste are key considerations, as well as providing high performance for a variety of lighting solutions.
Introducing the SkyCore family.
The SkyCore family is a UK designed and manufactured range of performance luminaires suitable for a wide variety of applications. The new backlit body design is highly efficient producing up to 146.9 luminaire lumens per circuit watt.
With three diffuser options, three mounting options and four different wattages, there is a solution for every space.
SkyGlo has a homogeneously lit opal surface to complement any interior. SkyGlo is ideal for areas where soft, diffuse lighting is required.
SkyPro provides low glare illumination for working environments meeting the requirements of BS EN 12464-1 and LG7 for luminance and glare control.
SkyDome includes the iconic domed opal diffuser, providing excellent wall, ceiling and vertical illumination.
A solution for every space.
SkyCore luminaires are available as either recessed lay-in or pull-up, ceiling surface or pendant mounting.
Making changes that matter.
Sustainability and the principles of circularity were key considerations in the development of the SkyCore family, with the aim of reducing the products environmental impact and carbon footprint.
The SkyCore family has an efficacy of up to 146.9 LL/CW. The higher the efficacy, the lower the power consumption and impact on the environment.
Long life and maintainable.
The SkyCore family achieves a 100,000 hrs rated life by using quality components including the LEDs, PCBs and drivers. If servicing is required, all components are easily accessible.
SkyCore luminaires with SmartScan can reduce energy consumption and prolong luminaire life by automatically dimming and switching the luminaires. Each SkyCore luminaire has an integral photocell and occupancy detector to alter the luminaire output depending on the level of daylight and occupancy within the space.
Modular and flexible.
Through its modular design, SkyCore luminaire components can be easily separated for servicing, upgrading or repurposing. This provides flexibility as well as simplifying and reducing through life costs.
Reuse and repurpose.
Due to its modular construction, serviceability, ease of wiring and the ability to adjust the light output, SkyCore luminaires can be easily reused or repurposed throughout its life, keeping the luminaire in use for as long as possible.
Recycle with ease.
Thorlux has minimised the variance of materials used in SkyCore luminaires to reduce recycling complexity.
The manufacturing process does not involve permanent fixings, such as the use of bonding or rivets, making disassembly and the separation of materials easy when end of life recycling is reached.
Reducing material waste.
Thorlux is passionate about minimising its environmental impact. When developing the SkyCore family, manufacturing efficiency and reduced waste were key considerations.
This approach led to a change in the design process. The development team carefully considered material types and how they could be used to optimise the design and ensure minimal waste is produced during the manufacturing process, lowering the overall environmental impact.
Each luminaire comprises of a luminaire head and gearbox which can easily be separated for servicing or re-purposing in the future, helping to reduce costs associated with returns, service time and waste.
Replaceable and maintainable.
Designed to last.
The modular and serviceable design allows the luminaire to be fully maintainable throughout its life, keeping the luminaire in service longer. Individual components can be removed or replaced for ease of servicing or upgrading should the need arise.

Safe, simple and secure.
Each SkyCore luminaire is supplied with either a 3-pole TEE connector, or the new Fast-Fix wiring enclosure to speed up and simplify installation.
SmartScan versions are supplied with a fitted 3-pole TEE connector for use with Thorlux interconnecting leads for very fast and error free installation.
All other versions come fitted with the new Fast-Fix wiring enclosure containing lever connectors for simple and secure wiring. The wiring connection can be made without having to open the luminaire or gear box, reducing the time needed to install.
A cable restraint system is built into the Fast-Fix wiring enclosure, capable of securing multi-core cables of up to 10mm diameter.
The power is in your hands.
The wattage of each SkyCore luminaire can be adjusted on-site through the “wattage selector” mounted on the gear box.
The wattage selector can be set to one of four pre-determined wattages. The clever feature allows the luminaire to be adjusted to room requirements, such as increasing or decreasing light levels after a change in use or occupier.
LUX Guard by Thorlux is a patented current sharing PCB and circuit design philosophy. If an LED fails then its current is shared via neighbouring circuits, with each LED’s brightness increasing slightly to compensate.
LUX Guard ensures that SkyCore luminaires continue to operate and provide their designed lumen performance, even in the case of nuisance LED failures, reducing the maintenance costs of a project.
