Strength of our products

Claire McCarthyNews UK

Strong, tough, and able to withstand adverse conditions – all accurate descriptions of our products.  Robustness and durability are categorised by IK ratings. An IK rating refers to how much mechanical impact a product can resist.  We know that for a luminaire to resist vandalism, it would need to have a minimum of IK10 which is equivalent to 20 joules of impact when using a pendulum hammer – as defined by the EN60068-2-75.  As market leaders in robust products we have exceeded the standard ratings by designing and manufacturing luminaires which can resist up to 150 joules of impact, resulting in a rating of IK16.  To find out more about the strength of our products, please visit
