Gi Plast Introduces Heat-Control-Line at LpS 2015

Whenever it comes to IP it is essential to protect the whole lamp and electronic from particles and water coming from the outside. The higher the IP-rate the more the lamp is protected or even sealed against anything pouring in. - But what happens actually in the inside of the lamp?

If nothing can come in, also nothing can come out!
In LEDs and other electronic equipment current is flowing constantly, once the lamp is lit up, and due to Joule’s heating effect the temperatures in the lamp rise and rise. This heat is trapped in the lamp and since it can hardly flow out, it will shorten and even endanger the life of LEDs and plastic covers.

With the vision to optimize any lighting process, we have developed the new Heat-Control-Line: the in-built solution to make heat flow directly to the outside of IP-lamps. Thermally conductive plastic is the key to make heat flow ten times more efficiently than normal plastic parts, which prevents LEDs and other components to be affected from heating damages.

By using extruded plastic, design possibilities are endless: there are no limitations given by commonly used components.  Being extruded also means, that anything is bound together, allowing no flaw or gap in the body of the lamp, observing highest IP-rates. Which ever limitation is set to lighting design, we improve to overcome it and make solutions become reality.
