Zumtobel has realised a high-performance and high-protection lighting solution for leading Swiss kitchen manufacturer Stöcklin Möbel AG. Very specific customer requirements in terms of protection, efficiency and quality made the TRINOS IP65 LED continuous-row system the perfect choice for this pioneering project.
Decisions, decisions, decisions. Rather like the goal of creating the perfect kitchen, the task of refurbishing the complete lighting infrastructure at Stöcklin Möbel AG was a tricky mix of ideals and ideas. Increased energy efficiency? Definitely. Rugged protection? At all times. Guaranteed safety at all times? Without a doubt. Improved employee satisfaction and productivity? Yes, please – especially as the old installation was no longer to the taste of most workers.
Many potential partners and possible products could be rejected straight away. Yet thankfully one solution has been designed for exactly this kind of complex application – spaces where the list of requirements is big and the desire to compromise is small: TRINOS from Zumtobel.
This LED lighting solution combines the versatility and practicality of a Zumtobel trunking system with the durability of an IP65 luminaire. Developed in response to the real challenges of industry applications, TRINOS supports high-quality work, excellent versatility and clever lighting intelligence in areas that constantly demand protection from aggressive conditions – all key factors for this client.
Stöcklin Möbel AG has been combining design and innovation to create kitchens that suit every taste and requirement for more than 70 years. Situated in the town of Aesch, close to Basel, this family-run business prides itself on using state-of-the-art methods to uphold strong traditions of outstanding quality and fine craftsmanship.
Last year the client decided to refurbish the 4800-square-metre production facility with an intelligent solution that would provide brightness control and presence-detection alongside excellent lighting quality and strong protection against dust. Detailed presentations to the manager and owners clearly demonstrated the benefits of TRINOS with a LITECOM lighting management system, but integrated emergency lighting and long-term peace of mind were also two key factors.
Thankfully Zumtobel Services unit could tick both of these boxes, specifying RESCLITE PRO luminaires for installation on TRINOS – for the first time ever – and drawing up a comprehensive maintenance contract in line with the needs of the customer. Additional fittings from Zumtobel and Thorn in the offices, loading bays and exterior zones helped complete this impressive refurbishment project.
And so the goals of control, efficiency, safety and performance could all be achieved with an intelligent, integrated lighting solution. If only designing the perfect kitchen was this straight forward.
