The integration of a LED source inside a lighting fixture is not always synonym with extraordinary performance. Long life and excellent light output are also guaranteed by the use of accurately tested, controlled and selected materials that can keep certain lighting and aesthetic qualities unaltered, such as lumen maintenance, perfect colour rendering, no glare and anti-yellowing properties. All this, combined with a well-known brand, will ensure reliability and efficiency over time.
Are we really sure that savings are always achieved with high-quality products?
No, generally not, especially when it comes to luminaires, where a constantly growing market is launching new items all the time. It is sufficient to think of the thousands of products sold online every day, where one can buy luminaires at very competitive prices. Advertising messages and newsletters from different lighting manufacturers insist on equipping their products with modern generation LED sources. It is an opportunity one cannot afford to miss!
However, we must not forget that the presence of a LED source is not enough to guarantee truly exceptional lighting performance levels, as well as long life and quality light output.
Other equally important factors are necessary to determine true quality.
LED Panel by Disano and the panels offered by Fosnova are made in highly selected, tested and controlled materials, not only to create a stylish product featuring the typical “made in Italy” design, but above all, they guarantee the highest reliability, efficiency and very long lamp life.
And not only that. It is through the details that we can measure the actual difference and the authentic quality of a product. For example, in Disano’s LED Panel 840 (CRI>90) or 842 (CRI>80), a special slab is inserted between the LED source and the diffuser. This component is fundamental for ensuring the right quality and amount of light output: the slab used by Disano is made in PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) that is a polymer that keeps its characteristics unaltered in time and prevents the lens from yellowing, which is a phenomenon that is likely to occur in “cheaper” products that use polystyrene (PS) which is available at much lower prices.
The result? Unlike PMMA slabs, the ones in PS become yellow after 6-8000 hours of operation, decreasing both the amount and the quality of the light emitted. And what’s worse, even when the fixture is switched off, they can compromise the perfect integration of the white panel into the false ceiling, affecting the overall appearance of the installation.
Thanks to the slab in PMMA, Disano’s LED Panel is capable of taking full advantage of the lighting benefits ensured by the most advanced LED sources, keeping them unaltered over time: 80% lumen maintenance for 50000 h (L80B20), perfect colour rendering (CRI≥80 or CRI>90), no glare (UGR<19) and certified low flickering level.
These are the only characteristics that can actually provide users with true savings in terms of energy and maintenance, setting them apart from those lighting fixtures that are similar but not the same as the ones manufactured by Disano illuminazione.
