Good news for specifiers comes with the introduction of a completely new type of industrial and sports lighting luminaire - the Titus.
Titus is an addition to Thorn Lighting's T5 range, but is a considerable technical advance because its design makes it amazingly adaptable. It can be surface mounted or fixed to catenary pipe or wire and its unique mounting brackets allow stepless tilting up to 50°, without rotational torque. The bracket ensures that the centre of gravity is directly below the fixing point at all available tilt angles. Secondly, it has been specially designed to take up to four 49W or 54W T5 lamps, thus offering an alternative to luminaires with discharge lamps for lighting sports halls and industrial buildings.
The IP65 rated Titus Industry is built to withstand aggressive environments and has a high level of corrosion protection as standard - e.g. when used in car cleaning facilities where detergents can easily destroy conventional plastic fittings. It features toughened glass, high performance optics and reflector and a choice of three louvre types. Titus Sport is ideal for use in sports, athletic and recreational halls with ceiling heights of 4m and higher, and is available with wire guard and optional louvres. The fitting can be supplied for through-wiring or with a patented built-in junction box (cutting installation time in half).
