Thorn Accelerates Adoption of LED Downlights Through Collaboration

As expected, Thorn has unveiled its first LED product built from the co-operation between its parent, the Zumtobel Group, and leading US LED producer Cree. The Base LED downlight uses Cree's pioneering colour-mixing technology and XLamp® LEDs to excel in three critical areas: performance, energy-efficiency and colour quality.

At 12W and with an output of 650 lumens, it matches the light levels of a compact fluorescent downlight, yet uses 50 per cent less energy and lasts over four times longer (designed to last 50,000 hours). Available in 2700K and 3500K options, it has an excellent CRI (Ra) of 94 and is dimmable to 20 per cent. Base LED delivers warm white light by the superior technique of mixing the light from yellow and red LEDs. Rear heat dissipation fins reduce the size and a shielding diffuser gives good glare control.
The successful collaboration with Cree started in the spring of 2008 with the aim to foster the proliferation of LED technology in the professional lighting sector. The value-creating alliance allows Thorn access to a unique source of technological knowledge, enabling it to accelerate the LED lighting revolution across Europe. Customers will benefit from energy-efficient and long-lasting products that save energy, save money and help protect the environment.
Base LED comes in two versions, recessed or surface and for a more decorative look there is a choice of inner ring: white, matt silver or matt copper. The fitting has an IP44 (splash-proof) classification, so is suitable for mounting in humid areas such as bathrooms and comes complete with a 3-year warranty. It is ideal for many commercial and residential applications - corridors, staircases, bars, restaurants – in short, anywhere with long burning hours that demands an inviting and economic lighting solution.
