Specified by UR-EKA Lighting and Controls Ltd, flex7 were able to offer a bespoke lighting control solution that linked to the fire station's alarm system. Important lights in the building were networked together using flex7 network leads. A special flex7 Control Pack was connected to the alarm panel in the station, and receives a volt-free signal whenever the alarm goes off
Prota plug-in ceiling rose is available in 3,4,5,6 and 7-pole options. It can be used for on/off, dimming, or specialised lighting applications. The pluggable connection means that luminaires can be connected and disconnected under load.
flex7 lighting controls are available with the added benefit of integrated emergency test. This feature can save time during both installation, and when carrying out periodic testing. Our lighting controls can easily be networked together meaning that rather than testing each circuit or phase separately, you can simply use one master key switch to test emergency luminaires across multiple circuits or even phases.
On July 1st 2017 a new and mandatory ruling with respect to making a cable’s fire related properties publically available came into force, but rather than diving straight into the specifics it may be more useful to start with something of an overview of how and why it came to be. The burning question (no pun intended) has to be whether there will be an immediate impact on the UK’s construction industry?
When designing the lighting scheme for a new or refurbed school, there are many things to consider including time constraints, regulations, energy-efficiency and special client requirements. The development of new technologies, and the vast array of products on offer mean it can be hard to decide on the best system for the job. Laid out below are just a few of the things worth thinking about before making your choice.
Whatever the type of installation, be it a school, hospital, office or retail outlet, areas where luminaires are controlled by a simple switch on the wall are greatly outnumbered by those incorporating something a bit more.. involved. What should you consider before selecting lighting controls?
We have added a 5 & 6-pole version of their popular plug and single socket outlets to ourextensive range of lighting connection and control products
If you’re involved in the ‘bricks & mortar’ side of the building industry, be it design, specification, procurement, construction, facilities management etc. it’s fair to say that you’ll find yourself at the sharp end of BIM. Some practices have already picked up the baton and are actively introducing it as their preferred option.
flex7 Lighting connection and control products have been used in the recent £9.5m redevelopment of The Moy’s End Stand at Peterborough United football stadium. The project includes a 3000sqm specialist education centre, linked to the stand. The building was designed to reach a BREEAM excellent standard.
