ACO Eyeleds solution for illuminating outdoor spaces. The new drainage solution will incorporate attractive and sustainable LED lighting technology as a permanent part of track drainage grates, which provide natural locations for pathway illumination.
The system can be added to new projects and existing removable drain grates, eliminating the need to install light fixtures directly into the concrete, tile or wood surface itself. The system also provides low energy consumption of only 3 watts per light point and a life span of up to 100,000 hours.
“Outdoor drains are typically installed in rugged environments that demand the performance and reliability of our hallmark Eyeleds solution,” said Richard Q.van de Vrie, Business Group Executive, Eyeleds International at Lighting Science.” The ACO Eyeleds System is the first result of our partnership with ACO and received a strong reception during its launch at the GalaBau conference in Germany. The system demonstrates the low profile, easy installation and durability of the Eyeleds product, in addition to ACO’s forward-looking approach to the drainage market.”
ACO Drain systems, made of corrosion-resistant polymer concrete and recycled material compounds, are the leading modular trench drain systems. The ACO Eyeleds, installed in the plastic grating load class B 125 and are powerful white LED light sources which feature a build-in depth of just 6.5 mm. They are resistant to scratches, shocks and UV rays and completely watertight. The ACO Eyeleds can withstand “walk” or “drive-over” loads up to 285kg, ideal for drainage systems. The installation process involves a simple joining of cable connections, with no electrician required.
“Designed as a guiding and decorative option for illuminating paths, open spaces, sport areas and private driveways, the ACO Eyeleds system represents the intersection of function and design,” said Anja Sievers, product manager at ACO. “We are excited to be working with a world-class LED company. Lighting Science was indispensable in providing the technical expertise and innovation to deliver our joint vision of an attractive and sustainable drainage solution.”Tags: LED
