Lights for environmental kitchens
The latest Ledaire luxlite fluorescent lights from Ledaire Fabrications have been designed for use in commercial kitchen environments and are produced from aluminium or T304 stainless steel.
Bezels and frames are made from extruded aluminium sections designed for hinged or ‘lift-out’ application and are powder-coated grey. The diffusers are Lexan diffused polycarbonate.
Where light fittings are subjected to extremely high temperatures it is wise to keep the ‘gear’ separate – well away from the heat – ideally in the supply air stream, in which case lights can be supplied with single, twin or triple tubes.
Light output will be designed to suit the size of hood and the required LUX at working top level below the canopy. Normally 500 lux is sufficient as a guide for working top level in most commercial kitchens.
