acdc to Showcase a Toolkit of Luminaires for Lighting Upgrade at Light + Building 2016
British designer and manufacturer of architectural LED products for exterior façades and hospitality lighting, acdc, will be demonstrating its toolkit of luminaires to bring buildings to life at this year’s Light + Building exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany, from 13 – 18 March.
The exhibition will provide the launch platform for three new products including the Fusion 12 2000 lumens flood, the 4800 lumens per metre Blade external linear family and a market leading wallwash downlight with an outstanding vertical performance.
Design Director, Daniel Hodgson, explains: “When people visit acdc at Light + Building they will be able to understand how our products, including our new for 2016 launches, will work with their applications.
“Our expert team will be on hand to explain how to apply light in layers to bring buildings to life inside and out. Our aim is to enable visitors to understand and to be educated in how using layers of light builds contrast and interest to create an identity, and most importantly, enable light to define the space, its brand and its values.”
acdc will cover all the applications for which its products are best known, including hospitality, retail, façade and high spec residential. It will also show how its products can be applied to many other applications including office, education, culture, sport, cityscape and transport.
For the first time, acdc will be sharing an impressive stand with sister lighting brands Thorn, Zumtobel, Tridonic and Reiss. All are part of the international Zumtobel Group. The stand will be located in hall 2.0 stand number B30+B31.
New Fusion 12 flood
Fusion 12 is an intelligent, highly efficient IP66 architectural floodlight delivering 2000 lumens. The addition of Fusion 12 to acdc’s award-winning Fusion flood range extends the choice to 2000 lumens (Fusion 12), 4000 lumens (Fusion 24) and 8000 lumens (Fusion 48). As with Fusion 24 and Fusion 48, Fusion 12 is available in single colour and with colour change or dynamic white options to enable lighting designers to apply a balanced and layered scheme.
New Blade linear family
Delivering more than 4800 lumens per metre, Blade is available in surface mount remote, surface mount integral or recessed integral to bring façades to life with layers of light from the ground to top floor.
The Blade family provides lighting designers with a flexible choice of configurations to ensure the luminaire can be precisely matched to the project’s requirements. This includes a range of outputs (1650 and 4800 lumens), lengths (315, 615, 915 and 1215mm), colour options (single colour, dynamic white, RGB, RGBA or RGBW) and beam angles (including a linear 12x40°).
New Novus Wallwash downlight
An extension to acdc’s new deep recessed technical architectural Novus downlight family, the new Novus Wallwash has a market leading min/max lux ratio on the vertical plane. When applied to a 3m wall and spaced 600mm from the vertical with 900mm spacing, it achieves a min/max lux ratio of 0.148.
acdc’s new soft edge architectural downlight, Air, is also able in the wallwash variant.
