Thorn luminaires get more aggressive

Published:  01 September, 2007

Water and corrosion resistant — Thorn’s AquaForce II series of general-purpose fluorescent luminaires.

Thorn’s AquaForce II range of fluorescent luminaires is resistant to water and corrosion and can provide effective general lighting in kitchens, showers and changing rooms, breweries, abattoirs and garages.

Design features include a seamless gasket set into a deeper channel withiin the canopy to ensure a better IP65 seal. In addition to more light output, a sturdier all-polycarbonate construction and the option of tamper-resistant stainless-steel toggles, there is a choice of switchstart, high-frequency and emergency control gear.

Installation features include quick-fix brackets and wiring knock-outs supplied. The gear tray that holds the circuitry simple clips into position in the canopy.

Optional extras include Connect versions for rapid electrical connection and numerous suspension and through-wiring kits.
