Founded in 1936, Thorlux Lighting is the largest company within the F W Thorpe Plc group, operating from a modern 16,882 square metre self-contained factory in Redditch, Worcestershire. The company designs and manufactures industrial and commercial lighting equipment, with a particular focus on energy saving and through life costs.
Thorlux is able to exploit recent advances in LED technology to help meet customer demand for energy-efficient solutions. The company’s considerable technical expertise and its ability to invest position it to maximise the opportunities offered by LED technology.
The company has developed a revolutionary wireless lighting control system, SmartScan, which allows users to monitor their energy performance data and complete operational status information for all SmartScan standard and emergency luminaires. This information is displayed on the SmartScan website which can be accessed from anywhere using a computer, laptop, tablet or smart-phone.
Thorlux offers a wide range of lighting solutions for the Healthcare sector. Projects combining Thorlux LED luminaires and Smart controls frequently benefit from energy savings in excess of 70% when compared with conventional technology. Smart sensors monitor ambient light and presence, control output to the correct level, dim and switch when there is sufficient daylight and illuminate only when the area is occupied.
