  • Safe is lighting switched on to every movement

    The lighting industry is developing rapidly and competition in the market is increasing. In a highly professionalized industry, high-quality products and components come first and have the best chance of becoming widely adopted. In addition, lighting has become an integral part of the design, contracting and construction of new buildings.

    Clients want assurance that your products are safe, sustainable and durable. At the same time, incorporating extensive metrics and big data will become key in standing out from the competition. The advent of new, more sustainable technologies and ways of working places greater emphasis on human-centric lighting, but also demands more complex testing requirements.
