Linear LED lighting is a versatile, and innovative sector of luminaire design. It’s something that has been used for some time now, but as the technology develops, so do its capabilities.
In New Zealand, most of our lighting solutions are imported from Europe or Asia. However, in the case of Linetec, a brand launched this month, their linear lighting range is engineered and manufactured right here in New Zealand.
“Attending the Frankfurt Lighting Fair last month, we saw that Linetec products are as good as the best in the world,” Linetec’s David Powley says. That’s due, in part, David says, to the benefits of manufacturing on site in New Zealand. “By doing this, we can ensure that exacting standards are maintained, and that we are using the highest quality materials every time.”
That quality runs throughout these cutting edge linear lighting solutions, right through to even the surface finishes.
“Most extruded aluminum products, because of the process of extrusion, are left with dye marks on the faces of the profile. We mitigate that by bead blasting, which is similar to sandblasting except gentler, to create an almost sheer, satin finish” David says
