Despite being able to take up to 70W lamps of high output and having integral control gear Thorn’s E/Fact Slim is a mere 115mm in depth, a full 85mm slimmer than the company’s previous recessed outdoor luminaire offering. This enables the luminaire to be used for locations where mounting space is at a premium, for instance under a canopy, lighting a building façade or pedestrian areas.
Two body shapes are offered – square and circular, in three diameter sizes – 210mm, 280mm and 370mm. There are other plus points in favour of E/Fact Slim – a selection of five different lamp types, including LEDs, the option of ceiling versions and a choice of frosted or part-frosted front glasses. Remember too, that these are low temperature ‘touch’ models (except the 70W).
E/Fact Slim is supplied with electronic ballasts offering reduced power consumption, easy dimming, flicker free operation and increased lamp life.
Above all the lights are discretely inconspicuous, so they do not stand out or detract from their surroundings. All are characterised by good looks, safety and durability, and are sealed to IP67. Each is constructed of die-cast aluminium with a stainless steel frame and polypropylene housing.
