Our testing facilities

Caragh BarryNews UK



At Designplan we are proud to have our own in-house testing facilities which we continuously upgrade and improve.  Product testing is a vital element in the design of our luminaires.

Our in-house photometry enables us to prototype new and bespoke luminaires. We were the first luminaire manufacturer in the UK to use a near field imaging Goniophotometer, which is unlike the arm and mirror structure of traditional systems. Due to this, we can supply photometric files as required. For more information on this, please contact our technical sales team on 02082542022.

Our other in-house testing facilities include:

  • Impact resistant (IK rating) Please CLICK HERE to watch the video on this.
  • Ingress protection (IP rating).
  • Product life.
  • High temperature.
  • Accelerated corrosion.
  • LED compatibility.

We also have selected products independently tested. This ensures that we attain all relevant and essential accreditation for extreme environments and the specialised sectors we supply.
