Plastic, rubber and metal. Here are information about the materials luminaires are made.
Plastic is a modern material that is being constantly developed offering a range of benefits. The scope for designing with this material is improving, several functions can be used for integration and the designs can also be made lighter compared with met...
About Sheet metal
Sheet metal, in various qualities, hardness’s, thickness’s and surface treatments, is widely used in light fittings.
Rubber parts are most commonly found as packing material of various types. Normally, this is for sealing edges along the periphery of the luminaire against a glass disc, for instance.
Extrusion is a process that can be done with both aluminium and plastic. The method is cost-effective and provides options for integrating functions and fine detail.
Die casting of metal is a method of production that produces strong parts, a high quality finish and a lot of integrated functionality.
The material is also dimensionally stable, with good weather resistance. It is customary to use PC/ABS where high demands are made for fittings, and at higher temperatures. The material is often used in electronics boxes, end pieces, instrument panels,...
PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate)
It has a high degree of sheen on the surface and rigidity. PMMA is easy to shape, strong and offers limitless opportunities for colouring. PMMA is UV stable and has very good weather resistance, making it suitable for outdoor use. The electrical proper...
The material is self-extinguishing. When designing, it must be ensured that the material is not exposed to continuous tension as this will ultimately lead to cracks forming.
Polycarbonate can be cold bended (roughly like sheet metal), extruded l...
PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
A material consisting solely of polyvinyl chloride is quite stiff, and for this reason softeners (phthalates) are generally added to make it easier to handle and more durable. The material has good chemical and weather resistance properties.

This chapter is filled with information about lighting standards, instructions and tips for your light planning.
Fagerhult are developing luminaires specifically for LEDs, creating viable solutions across the whole spectrum of a lighting project.
Here we have gathered tips and solutions on how you can work with lighting in different types of public areas.
Light, or light radiation, not only affects our visual cortex but also the whole of our alertness, wellbeing and performance.
