With the introduction of the KFK in 1985, Lightronics created a timeless design for a continuous streetscape. The KFK still continues to play a principal role in the residential environment. The design remains the same, while the technology has been optimised. LED, naturally, but also ready for the future. One of Lightronics’ core values is the extended future availability of the luminaires; a guarantee for your streetscape.
Lightronics has committed to the extended future availability of its luminaires. This also applies to the Small Flevo Cone (KFK). The KFK is the GFK’s smaller cousin, making it perfectly suitable for residential districts. The different lens configurations guarantee optimal light output. The KFK complies with all standards, prevents light disturbance and is equipped with the UniCliq system, which makes new technology easy to implement.
“We installed our first KFK 30 years ago and the first KFKs have since been replaced with LED-enabled KFKs. The model continues to be interesting and due to the new advanced light technology has evolved. Our streetscape – we have approximately 25,000 conical luminaires – is highly distinctive, primarily due to the KFK.”
Sjaak Roosenboom, Technical Management Advisor Municipality of Almere (NL).
In part due to its uniform light profile, the KFK promotes social security in residential districts and walking areas. There is a choice of an asymmetrical, wide-beam or omnidirectional lighting profile, making it possible to always achieve the most optimal light output. Areas of application include residential districts, walking and cycling paths and back alleys, as well as business parks, for example.
In addition to future availability, quality, innovation and care for the environment are among Lightronics’ core values. To be able to guarantee the quality of our luminaires, semi-finished and end-products are checked and tested at many points during the manufacturing process, in accordance with the ISO9001 and ISO2859 (the latter specifies the sample size). These checks and tests are performed by independent parties, as well as in our own light testing laboratory; always with calibrated measuring instruments. The safety and performance of our products are assured on the basis of the DEKRA LED Performance certificate and the ISO 12944 QUALICOAT lacquer quality label, among others.
Lightronics furthermore aims for inventive lighting solutions with a minimum burden on the environment. Energy efficient light technology is combined with recyclable materials. Efficiency in production, storage and transport translate into a sustainable end-product. The objective is to emit as little carbon dioxide (CO2) as possible during all phases of the production process. To further compensate for the emissions caused by its luminaires, Lightronics plants approximately 1,000 trees each year. A single tree converts approximately 1 tonne of carbon dioxide into oxygen during its lifetime.
New technology creates a connection between different functions in the living environment. Lightronics’ luminaires are enabled for Smart Lighting applications. This not only includes our own data modules (Top Smart, SmartScan), most luminaires are also suited for use with Luminext, LoRa or TVilight. As system integrator, Lightronics ensures that you are always connected.
The KFK is an example of timeless design that fully expresses all Lightronics’ core values and has been doing so for almost 35 years. This is our promise to you: a guaranteed streetscape, but then with modern technology. This applies to our conical luminaires, as well as the recently introduced PRUNUS series; this evolution will continue to take place.
