Pendant achieves a TM66 of 2.6

Stoane Lighting PLP

A PLASTIC light pendant version of Stoane Lighting’s ZTA50 has achieved a TM66 environmental rating of 2.6, putting it in the excellent category.

The company says the pendant blends excellent light quality, circularity and flexibility whilst repurposing waste acrylic.

It functions as a decorative pendant, some capturing granulated acrylic waste. Stoane says it is also able to make use of the mixed fine powder overspray collected from its finishing processes to make opaque ‘PW’ versions of ZTA.50 PLP.

The company says it is also planning a range of bold colours for the product.

It says the PLP was ‘born from an opportunity to put waste to use’.

The powder finish gives a durable protective coating to the aluminium luminaire housings.

The overspray was previously collected and disposed of but now it’s being used to create products much higher up the value chain.

Together with a PMMA monomer binder and, if desired, granulated acrylic waste, PLP is a decorative addition to the ZTA.50 range.

The powder waste consists of 12 per cent captured fine powder waste and 88 per cent clear acrylic. The acrylic waste comprises 40 per cent granulated clear acrylic waste, 60 per cent clear acrylic.The powder and acrylic waste is 12 per cent captured fine powder waste, 45 per cent granulated clear acrylic waste and 43 per cent clear acrylic.

The ZTA spotlight was designed by Stoane Lighting for the circular economy.

It can be disassembled, repaired and rebuilt many times over using every day accessible tools.

The style of the product is deliberately minimalist to ensure that it does not succumb to fashion.

Components, light engines, accessories and all subsequent parts are sought from minimal distances and chosen for their technical superiority.
