OFFERING A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF SERVICES UNDER ONE ROOF
With many years of experience and an internationally experienced, inter-disciplinarily trained team, LIGHT ON offers a comprehensive service covering all technical and planning aspects of lighting, lighting design and architectural lighting planning: from design, lighting planning and construction to electrical planning and electrical installation. LIGHT ON clients benefit from our ongoing professional support. As a full-service provider, we can offer all services directly or, each of the service modules from our wide-ranging portfolio can also be commissioned individually.
THE LIGHT ON RANGE OF SERVICES INCLUDES
- the development of lighting concepts and lighting plans
- the preparation of lighting calculations
- the preparation of tender documents and installation instructions
- the assumption of responsibility for construction management
- the compilation of maintenance logs
- the drawing up of acceptance protocols
- the development of specialised, made-to-measure light fittings
- the photometric measurement of luminaires
PROFESSIONALISM DOWN TO THE LAST DETAIL
Technically sophisticated lighting designs and lighting solutions are the core competence of LIGHT ON. Our nearly 30 years of experience and broad spectrum of knowledge about lighting management, lighting technology, lighting calculations and energy efficiency go into each of our unique lighting solutions. We use state-of-the-art computer programmes to vividly present our planning concepts with visualisations and 3D animations. Thanks to the use of high-quality products, the exact elaboration of the finest detail and well considered dimensioning, lighting solutions from LIGHT ON convince with their long service life and minimal maintenance requirements.
WORKING WITH THE MAGIC OF LIGHT
Lighting concepts by LIGHT ON are based on a symbiosis of daylight and artificial light: we create an inspiring ambience by using the available daylight and supplementing it with artificial light. When developing our lighting concepts, we take into account the architecture of the premises and consider the specifications of the lighting direction as well as the technical requirements for the lighting. We suggest ideal luminaires, independently of specific manufacturers and select them in consultation with the architects and owners. In this way, our lighting concepts convince with their quality, functionality, energy efficiency and design.
MADE TO MEASURE LIGHT FITTINGS
FROM DEVELOPMENT TO FINAL TESTING
One of LIGHT ON’s specialities is the development of specially made-to-measure lights and light fittings. For their design and realisation, we can rely on a well-established network of professionals in in the fields of luminaire construction, special materials and mechanics. With these trusted partners, we can professionally realise any form of individual solution.
LIGHT ON SPECIAL SOLUTIONS INCLUDE
- developing made-to-measure special luminaires for specific projects.
- optimising the technology, design and mounting of standard light fittings.
- integrating standard luminaires into our own special constructions.
- converting historical and listed luminaires and equipping them with the latest lighting technology.
The final photometric tests of all such products – e.g. light distribution, flux and thermal management – are carried out by our staff at our own LIGHT ON premises.
LIGHTING DESIGN BY LIGHT ON
Design is the language of form. High-quality luminaires are, however, strongly dependent on technical constraints due to increasingly complex lighting technology. For LIGHT ON, luminaire design involves the fusion of form and technology. In this way, we aim to create proverbially shining examples of the guiding principle that “form follows function”.
When developing new luminaires, we perfectly balance functionality, technical specifications and design. We only use materials that meet the highest standards in terms of their appearance, durability and user-friendliness.
CULTURAL HERITAGE PRESERVATION
RESTORATION AND THE MODERNISING OF LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY
LIGHT ON has almost 30 years of experience in professionally combining modern lighting technology while meeting the requirements of conservation authorities. After taking stock and recording the actual condition of all lighting in a listed object, we approach the restoration sensitively, creating prototypes to check thermal loads on the luminaires (glass and cooling elements). We reconstruct mechanical parts and rebuild them true to the original down to the smallest detail. If it is found necessary in the course of restoration, we adapt luminaires to increase their output. Finally, with an acceptance protocol and a declaration of conformity, we demonstrate compliance with the regulations imposed by the monument conservation authorities.
QUALITY CONTROL FOR LUMINAIRES AND LEDS
LIGHT ON’s expert assessments are based on our own precision tests and measurements: We prepare light measurements, determine the photometric data of LED luminaires and check the manufacturer’s specifications for accuracy. Such photometric reports are the only way to determine the true quality of luminaires and LEDs accurately. In the event of damage, they can be used to pursue possible warranty claims.
WE ASCERTAIN THE FOLLOWING READINGS WHEN THE LUMINAIRES ARE COLD AND WARM
- Luminous flux
- Luminous intensity
- Spectral distribution
- Colour rendering index
- Sinusoidal pollution
- Beam angle
EXPERT REPORTS FOR DAMAGE ASSESSMENT
In Switzerland, we are also asked to use our test methods to document damage claims. They enable us to prepare expert reports for defective luminaires and to analyse damage to articles and buildings caused by light (e.g. excessive infrared exposure or UV radiation).
