Lux Review: 600x600 Panels- Integral Panel is 5 *

Lux Magazine’s technical editor Alan Tulla has recently reviewed the latest LED replacements for recessed fluorescent fittings.

In order to review these items, Tulla tested ten different panels from the cheap and cheerful to the more expensive and higher quality aswell as edge lit and backlit. Edgelit being the flatter, slimmer panel and backlit the thicker, more hefty. Due to the competition for lowest price on the market being so hot, Tulla explains that a lot of photometric data is missing from the panels of some suppliers and this can cause issues involving glare, uneven light distribution and dark ceiling areas where the panels are not arranged properly. All making for a poor installation.

A panel that did not disappoint was the Integral Led Panel,using 40W, the panel emits over 5100 lumens, 5121 to be precise at 128 lumens per watt. Tulla states in his review that this panel is, ‘a third more efficient that many of its competitors’ aswell as having, ‘clear installation instructions and technical data. There’s even a cone diagram showing the illumination level at various mounting heights.’
Tulla finishes by saying that the Integral panel is a, ‘no-nonsense unit with huge light output at a competitive price.’
Tulla gave the Integral Panel five out of five stars.
This panel is excellent value for money and can be found on our website. http://theledspecialist.co.uk/
