flex7 are in the Premier League

flex7’s energy saving lighting connection and control products have been installed as part of a recent upgrade to Southampton football club’s home changing room. The changing room was completely refurbished, and flex7 products were identified as providing the perfect solution for the connection and control of the new lighting layout.

CPR Compliance – In Brief

Although there are some exceptions, generally speaking it is illegal to install any cable that was placed on the market on or after 1st July 2017 that is not CPR compliant. We believe that CPR class CCA is destined to become the benchmark for many commercial installations in the UK. It provides the benefits of reduced reaction to fire in tandem with the robust verification process of System 1+.

Flex7 increase efficiency of Radiotherapy Bunkers

flex7 have helped to dramatically increase efficiency of radiotherapy units at Musgrove Park Hospital, Beacon Centre using their ZoneLite Lighting Control Modules. The Hospital is one of many across the UK who have a specialist unit to treat cancer patients.

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.

In 1998 flex7 created the world’s first 7-pole lighting connection interface. Since then we’ve designed an entire connection & control system around these clever plug & socket modules.
