To put it simply BJB has the best technology for down light fixtures. Downlights are versatile lighting fixtures used as a component of an optimal lighting plan in lighting projects. These downlights provide comprehensive lighting in a specific space.
When installed properly, it can give any room a welcoming illumination and perfect ambiance. The market is flooded with choices, but BJB provides the right solution for your LED downlight needs. And because downlights are so diverse, BJB has appropriate solutions for every conceivable type of application. These include reflectors from our standard range as well as various diffusor plates for common beam angles.
When it comes to determining your downlights, ceiling height matters. For instance, the further the light source is from your target area, the more lumination it will need. Also, determining the types of downlights are important too, as some may want their downlights to move in various directions (allowing you to tilt its frame so you can focus the light in any direction). Other types of downlights include surface mounted downlights (if you are unable to drill holes through your ceiling). And then, determining the required number of downlights based on your specific goals as well as square footage of the room (room size).

The combined power of Trilux, Rohner Engineering, Mondragon, Luger Research, IREC, Grado Zero, Bartenbach, and BJB will provide not just influence but actionable results in moving the Repro-light project forward.
The initial phase of the project focused on analyzing the customers needs and technical requirements. Understanding the perception of how workers perceive lighting in the workspace was an important first factor in assessing next steps. A survey, conducted by Repro-Light in early 2019 revealed that 'current lighting in the workplace is not satisfying end-users and their needs'.
The results of the overall first survey proved that change is required in the working environments, both in industrial spaces and in offices, and that the overall community is ready for major changes in lighting transformation.
The latest focus of Repro-Light has been to assess the 'Life Cycle and Sustainable Development of Lighting' As part of the project, the IREC, an energy research institute in based in Spain, has been looking to focus their research into the design of luminaries to contribute to sustainable development.
Additionally, BJB is bringing our historic knowledge about mechanical, electrical and thermal interfaces including the flexible automated production for new LED lighting systems. Within this project, the concept for a socket-connector system is developed in respect of special requirements for interchangeable intelligent light modules, giving BJB the opportunity to use these synergies in Reprolight.
BJB has developed and implemented more than 160 automated production lines for worldwide customers in the lighting and domestic appliance industry. We are also an active member in the national and international stadardization committees like IEC and Zhaga. The experience of our innovations and iconic experience will stand out within the Repro-light project.
