Thorn’s Aquaforce Pro Sets New Standard For Moisture-resistant LED Lighting

The latest addition to the Thorn Aquaforce family of luminaires, Aquaforce Pro takes moisture and dust-resistant lighting to a new level.
Thorn Aquaforce is already established as the ideal luminaire for damp and dusty conditions and now the brand-new IP66-rated Aquaforce Pro offers numerous improvements over its predecessor Aquaforce II, including enhanced performance and greater versatility. And with efficacy as high as 141lm/W, it’s a highly cost-effective option too.
Unlike some LED luminaires that struggle to match the light output of conventional products on a one-for-one basis, Aquaforce Pro comes in an 8000 lm version, powerful enough to directly replace 2x58W or 2x49W conventional luminaires, making it an ideal choice for retrofit and refurbishment projects. The super-lightweight Aquaforce Pro is designed to be simple to install, use and maintain, with long mounting sliders and the unique EasyClick snap-on mechanism for simple, easy mounting, plus seven different wiring possibilities. Internal components can be easily accessed for maintenance when required.
This robust luminaire is built to resist ambient temperatures ranging from -20°C to 35°C, and its clever drip-edge design avoids dust depositing on the light output surface, so that any accumulation of dirt has minimal impact on performance. Aquaforce Pro is available with a choice of light distribution options, with a medium beam version that is engineered for high efficiency in factory and warehouse settings. The wide version has been designed to meet the requirements of the new DIN 67528 parking standards being introduced across Europe, with high levels of cylindrical and vertical illuminance. Cutting-edge light transmission technology with refraction prisms creates a scattering effect, providing smooth light without sharp corners, and a maximum light levels.
Aquaforce Pro features DALI dimming and a built-in corridor function, using a presence/absence detector to dim down and turn off automatically when an area is not in use. Luminaires can be controlled individually or in groups, and can even connect to each other wirelessly, enabling sophisticated control with no new wiring for refurbishment projects.
