With the 1500mm Tecton C Luminaires delivering a fantastic 5580lm at an incredible efficacy of 168lm/w. Tecton is the world’s first continuous-row luminaire to have an 11-pole current conducting section built into its trunking. All functions such as power supply, lighting control and connection to emergency lighting are seamlessly integrated into this multifunctional trunking. Luminaires can be positioned flexibly and the system can be adapted to suit structural alterations at any time. TECTON copes effortlessly with various lighting requirements – at the time it is installed and whenever there are changes.
