WHY THINK ABOUT THE LIFETIME OF THE PRODUCT ?
Other characteristics of products (eg recent models using less energy than older or the high luminous efficiency can reduce the quantity of luminaires in place) in addition the benefits of longer lifetime. Moreover for consumers to be informed about the product lifetime is one way to ensure the investment. The long lifetime is an advantage for both: environment and interest of consumer / user.
BENEFITS ARE TWOFOLD
- The need to replace old product is infrequent, thereby reducing waste production.
- This also avoids the unnecessary use of natural resources used to develop the products.
C.E. : European Conformity
Low voltage directive: The Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/UE) aims at guaranteeing the safety of electrical devices used in the same voltage span from 50 to 1.000VAC (alternative current) and from 75 to 1.500VDC (direct current).
NF EN 60598-1 : Luminaires – Part 1 : general requirements and tests.
SELV : Safety Low Safety Voltage (max. 50Vac and max. 120Vdc).
RoHS (2011/65/UE) european directive: intended to limit the use of six hazardous substances.« RoHS » means Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The substances are lead, mercury, cadmium, Hexavelent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).
FLUX packagings are 100% cardboard, without staple.
This recyclable high quality packaging has adequate space for variable lengths of cable and other optional accessories. There are varying box sizes to prevent unnecessary packaging waste.
Packaging is flat packed. Ergonomically designed to optimise installation time. Optimisation of packaging design for transport efficiency. Several tests were performed internally regarding changes in design to resistance and transport which affect thickness splines and timings. Various symbols can be read on our packaging including RESY logo which indicates the recycling boxes warranty. Corrugated cardboard used is 100% natural: made from abundant raw material, cultivated and renewable (wood cellulose is extracted). It contributes to the maintenance of the forest and the capture of CO². It is biodegradable, it can biodegrade in a very short period of time (in 3 weeks in humid conditions), enriching the ground. Finally, the corrugated cardboard is recyclable and recycled for the same use: its recovery rate is 80%. Recycling is ensured by more 50 factories spreads on the French territory.
