The Astra range offers an attractive flush mounting
luminaire with an optional lens that accommodates a
hanging blade exit legend. The luminaires utilise a
polycarbonate body and lens in LED. Ease of installation
is assured due to the adjustable arms that swing out and
clamp down onto the supporting surface. The optional
exit panel is moulded with a wedge shape to improve
the luminance distribution over the legends. The plain
lens seals the recessed enclosure to IP65.
The Astra luminaires are available with 16 x white LEDs
with Maintained or mains only operation.
(Non-maintained operation is available by excluding a
switched live supply).
All emergency versions provide 3 hour duration as
standard from integral high temperature Nickel Cadmium
batteries. Maintained versions can be used for standard
switched mains lighting but will automatically provide
emergency lighting in the event of a complete loss of
normal mains supply. The hanging blade exit legend
panels require a different lens to the plain version and
must be ordered as a complete unit.
The benefits of the modern white low power LEDs include
long life (typically 50,000hours+), excellent energy
efficiency (>100lm/W), low operating temperatures
therefore improving the life of the internal Nickel
Cadmium (NiCd) batteries and good operation at low
The luminaires fully comply with the requirements of
EN60598.2.22 and the low energy consumption assists
with compliance with Part L requirements.
