In anticipation of the forthcoming changes to lighting industry standards to improve the efficiency and quality of office lighting, Thorn has launched a new range of modular fluorescent luminaires: Menlo³.
The dual component design with market leading light output achieves efficacies of up to 62 luminaire lumens / circuit Watt, far exceeding the target value of Part L building regulations, whilst also delivering excellent levels of cylindrical illuminance and facial modelling, as recommended by the awaited update to EN 12464-1 (Lighting indoor workplaces). And with a range of optics and mounting options there are solutions to meet all aspects of display screen use.
The new design focuses on better performance and improved aesthetics through three optical choices, three geometric shapes and three mounting options. Lamp types include conventional fluorescent (T16 and TC-L) and LEDs for the recessed circular model. High performance optics include an innovative mini-vane louvre and a modern micro-prism diffuser. Control gear is standard or digital dimmable high frequency with the option of integral LED emergency lighting (three hour self/addressable test) and /or a sensor head for lighting control purposes.
