LED StripLEDVANCE is offering wholesalers a new portfolio of LED strips for an enormous range of professional lighting tasks. The LED strips are available in three different categories to cover a wide variety of requirements. In addition to the LED strips, the portfolio includes an extensive range of LED drivers, profiles for surface or recessed installation, covers and other accessories – all perfectly matched as a system solution for lighting professionals under the LEDVANCE brand.

The LED strips come in three different categories: Superior, Performance and Value. They differ above all with regard to ideal application, lifetime, IP rating, number of LEDs per meter and therefore their light output and distribution. Available in a large number of color temperatures ranging from energizing, daylight white 6,500 kelvin to warm white 2,700 kelvin and lumen packages from 300 to 2,000 lumens per meter, the LED strips are suitable for virtually any lighting task in a modern lighting concept – including classic general lighting, ambient lighting and indirect lighting of niches and coves. All LED strips are prewired on both sides and are easy to shorten if necessary. They also all come as protected and unprotected versions, in other words with or without a silicone jacket for protection against dust and water.

Three product categories for a wide variety of requirements

The TÜV-certified strips in the Superior category are particularly suitable for demanding lighting installations in large, representative buildings. In places such as corporate offices, upmarket hotels, shopping centers and museums they offer impressive color rendering with a color rendering index (CRI) of over 90. The 140 LEDs per meter also provide a very homogeneous light output and distribution across the entire strip length. Thanks to IP67 protection, the protected versions of the Superior products are also ideal for outdoor use in adverse conditions and dusty and damp interior spaces.

With up to 60,000 hours their lifetime is extremely high. LEDVANCE provides a five-year guarantee on the strips in this category.

Also TÜV-certified, the Performance category is characterized by a very high lifetime of up to 35,000 hours and as a protected version with IP66 rating can withstand dust and jets of water. With a CRI of 80 it delivers good color rendering and is suitable for medium-sized office buildings, schools, restaurants, bars and shops. LEDVANCE offers a guarantee of three years for the LED Performance strips.

The products in the Value category are all-rounders with a very good price/performance ratio for lighting applications in the entry-level segment. They also have a CRI of 80, and come in an IP65 protected version and a lifetime of up to 20,000 hours. Thanks to these properties, they are a good choice for indoor spaces such as smaller offices, guesthouses, private premises, as well as appropriate outdoor areas.

Extensive range of accessories for easy installation and smooth operation

In the LEDVANCE LED strip system “toolbox”, installers will also find all the components they need for easy installation and smooth operation. These include LED drivers in various versions for the respective categories, with or without IP protection, and with or without dimming function. Installers can also choose from an extensive range when it comes to profiles, including versions for different installation types – open or with a bezel, for ceiling or wall mounting. Also included in the range are a variety of feeders, connectors, end caps and mounting brackets.

LEDVANCE provides additional support for installers with its LED strip system configurator. Once the key data of the lighting project has been entered in the configurator, it automatically generates a detailed parts list with all required components.

The new LED strip system comes in the LEDVANCE brand and is available for wholesalers from July.

WestburneMany contractors prefer to deal with the people that they know, in their local branch. When doing a job out of town, it’s often inconvenient or simply impossible to return to your home branch to pick up material orders for the next day, within standard business hours.

Westburne’s new locker solution extends the branch’s pick up times to 24 hours, 7 days a week.

All electrical incidents are preventable! Keep employees safe with an up-to-date electrical safety program and complimentary training.

“Employees don’t do what you expect, they do what you inspect!” This is a great quote when it comes down to occupational health and safety. The need for ensuring that an audit is a key component of your overall occupational health and safety management system and your company’s electrical safety program is essential.

Michelle BraniganBy Michelle Branigan

Student workers may make up a relatively small portion of the sector workforce, but their impact is substantial. EHRC’s Empowering Futures wage subsidy program has placed 510 students, contributing $14.8 million to the Canadian economy (and counting). That’s no small figure, especially considering that many placements are only a few months long.

In challenging economic times, the tendency might be to pull back on initiatives not deemed essential to operating — why take a chance on an inexperienced employee for only a short time when resources are already stretched?
