Asta Linear® by Applelec is a new range of high quality aluminium profiles that have been designed for linear LED lighting installations. The range will be officially launched at the May Design Series 2014 on stand J71 within the lighting district of the show.
Providing versatile options for surface, recessed, suspended and decorative LED mounting solutions, Asta Linear® profiles are both simple to use and elegantly constructed. With a made-to-measure service offered by Applelec, the profiles are supplied in specified lengths with a choice colour temperature or RGB LEDs pre-installed. Further flexibility is afforded as the profiles are available individually for use with a preferred LED strip option.
The new profile series is a first for Applelec as the company expands its range of lighting products that have been created for lighting professionals and the wider design community. The new range compliments Applelec’s successful flat light panel, LED Light Sheet, and indeed the two products can be used in harmony with one another. LEDs embedded within LED Light Sheet are suitable for use within the Asta Linear®profile range to create uniform lighting schemes.
Applelec managing director Ian Drinkwater explains: “With continued growth in the demand for LED Light Sheet, we were interested in developing another product that delivered real design flexibility. Bespoke product construction is something our clients’ value highly and the new Asta Linear® range is designed form a similar perspective. The range of profiles is available in lengths or in made-to-measure units which are assembled to specification in our UK factories.”
Providing stylish solutions for the installation of LED strips, the Asta Linear® range creates a powerful heat-conducting path which prolongs the LED lifespan. A lens or diffuser is added to the aluminium profile to filter light from the LED and create a seamless linear light output.
