Luminaire is made from bio-polycarbonate

Zalux Duna Bio

An IP66 luminaire with a housing partly made of bio-based polycarbonate derived from waste products has been unveiled by Spanish light maker Zalux.

Both body and diffuser comprise 70 per cent bio-based materials with biomass origin, produced from renewable sources. The material is ISCC certified.

The luminaire itself has an efficiency of up to 167 lmW and a temperature range of 50C, with 100,000 hours lifetime.

The company is keep to emphasise that the bio-based plastic hasn’t compromised its robustness; the luminaire has a high impact resistance of IK08.

The luminaires features stainless steel closing clips and in addition, it can incorporate Bluetooth wireless control to achieve greater energy savings and control in the installation.

It comes in two output versions, 4200 lm (25W) and 6100 lm (35W), and a standard colour temperature of 4000K.

Zaragoza-based Zalux has specialised in industrial-style luminaires since 1980. Its fittings are aimed at usage in extreme conditions such as tough temperatures, dust, humidity and chemicals.

Many of its range are ATEX approved and are certified for use in EX-Zones according to ATEX directive.

The company has recently installed a 147 Kw photovoltaic installation at its Alhama II plant in Alhama de Aragón, in order to contribute to reducing our environmental impact.

The 286 photovoltaic panels – designed for self-consumption – will mean an environmental saving of 220.5 kg of CO2 per year, which is equivalent to planting 147 trees, with which the company aims to reduce its energy consumption by 20 per cent.

The Alhama II plant is where Zalux carries out the wiring and final assembly of all its luminaires, and from there, they are sent to our customers around the world.

The solar panel project was funded by the European Union – NextGenerationEU, within the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
