New July 2017 Cable Regulations – How will they affect the industry?

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?

What to consider when selecting lighting connection and control products for schools & universities

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.

New flex7 Scene Setting Panel

The wall-mounted panel allows you to set up 4 lighting scenes, and instantly recall them with the simple press of a button. If needed, scenes can be further adjusted while in use, by dimming up/down individual channels, to create a tailor made lighting scene.

Selecting lighting controls

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?
