Lucipark by Lucibel: The New LED for Professionals

leave a comment »

SHENZHEN, China, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Lucibel, a specialist in low-energy lighting, unveils a new LED-based bulb for professional use, perfect for parking structures.

Energy saving LED lamp for parkings and warehouses

Thanks to its protection index (IP) of 65 and its shock-resistance index of 8, the new bulb by Lucibel has been developed especially for heavy-duty working environments, such as parking structures, workshops, and outside work spaces. With a color render index of 85, this LED by Lucibel offers an almost natural lighting effect. Lucipark can be purchased in two color tones: neutral white and bright white.

Reliability, Economy, and Quality

An aluminum heat dissipater guarantees the performance and longevity of the product. Heat quickly flows out of the unit, and along the way, the light’s flux and colorimetry aren’t affected. The perfect balance of quality lighting in the Lucipark bulb prevents any of the blinking or fading often seen in fluorescent products.

The Lucipark bulb consists of 84-140 carefully selected LEDs. Advancing from the traditional lighting powered by fluorescent bulbs, Lucipark allows for up to 50% energy savings. Through the course of its life — 50,000 hours — the bulb considerably reduces energy and maintenance costs.

Ergonomic and Practical Simplicity

Coming pre-wired, the bulb can be put in place using a system of tabs to secure the bulb easily without having to disassemble the fixture, allowing for an easy transition.

The LED technology within each Lucipark guarantees an infinite number of instant light-ups.

Works with dimmer switches and motion/light detectors, therefore allowing the user to customize how the bulb illuminates a selected space. Charles d’HAUSSY, Asia sales Vice-president explains, “Applications for the Lucipark serie are numerous. We delivered projects from Bus station, Sports hall to industrial cold rooms.”

The advantages of Lucipark lighting:

Use in a variety of exterior and industrial settings
Reduction in maintenance costs, thanks to its 50,000-hour lifespan
50%-reduced energy costs over the traditional lighting options
Instant, no-wait light-up
Unlimited number of on/off cycles
Limited environmental impact: less energy, less waste

Comes in 2 formats:
o 60cm — 30W Power

o 120cm — 30W or 50W Power

Comes in two tones (bright white, neutral white)
Available commercially through lighting experts, related distributors, and national installers
Greater Asia distribution hub. Charles d’Haussy (Hong Kong),; Sylar Shi (mainland China),
