Led Panels products
We have 5 LED panels that appear, at first glance, to be very similar – LINCOLN, STERLING, FULTON, FARGO and DETROIT. They are all 600 x 600 and are all for lay-in installation in grid ceilings, but there are important differences between them, as follows:
- Surface, suspended and pull-up installation. STERLING & FULTON are also suitable for surface, suspended and pull-up installation. Details of the various installation kits required (suspension wires etc) are on the individual product pages.
- UGR<19. STERLING, FULTON & FARGO, when installed in a typical application, will deliver a lighting design with a UGR<19. For details of UGR, what it means and how it is calculated, please read here .
- TP(a) / TP(b). STERLING has a TP(a) rated diffuser and can therefore be used anywhere as part of a ceiling (except in “protected stairways”) without having to check the spacings. FULTON and FARGO both have TP(b) rated diffusers that are permissible in all areas (except “protected stairways”) but there are some restrictions on spacings of TP(b) diffusers that should be checked before a final selection is made. For details of TP(a), TP(b) and the restriction that apply to the use of TP(b) rated diffusers, please read here .
- Edge-lit v back-lit. FULTON & STERLING are edge-lit while FARGO is back-lit. For details of the differences between back-lit and edge-lit, please read here . Because FULTON & STERLING are both edge-lit they have a light guide plate. In STERLING this is made of acrylic (PMMA) which has the highest light transmission rate and will not yellow with age. On the FULTON the LGP is made of a lower cost blend of PMMA and polystyrene (PS) called MS.
2 additional LED panels are for more specialist lighting applications:
- BISMARCK is IP54 rated, so suitable for clean rooms, food preparation areas etc.
- ORION has a direct/indirect light distribution.
