Via: Pure light – across the whole line

Linear LED lumi­naires merged with a track – with Via, Selux is launch­ing a new type of lumi­naire that makes the pop­u­lar 3-phase track and tried-and-tested light­ing infra­struc­ture even more ver­sa­tile than ever. The Via offers the aes­thet­ics of vir­tu­ally bod­i­less, unin­ter­rupted light lines while at the same time pro­vid­ing a high level of func­tion­al­ity with six dif­fer­ent light dis­tri­b­u­tions.

With the Via family of lumi­naires, Selux has devel­oped a design that will serve to inspire light plan­ners and design­ers. A track acting as the infra­struc­ture is merged with a 36 mm-wide linear lumi­naire body – or rather light body to be pre­cise since, with the Via, the lumi­naire dif­fuser is made entirely of translu­cent PMMA plas­tic with a rec­tan­gu­lar or semi-cir­cu­lar cross-sec­tion. The con­nect­ing ele­ments, also translu­cent and barely vis­i­ble, enable linear light fix­tures to be formed from lumi­naire mod­ules of vary­ing lengths with­out vis­i­ble inter­rup­tions. As a ver­sa­tile and func­tional design ele­ment, it can be used in var­i­ous appli­ca­tion areas such as offices, shops, gal­leries and even muse­ums thanks to its six effec­tive light dis­tri­b­u­tions.

The Via com­bines an entic­ingly simple, under­ly­ing idea with Selux linear LED light­ing tech­nol­ogy com­pe­tence and con­trol elec­tron­ics in a min­i­mal size. The system com­prises an extremely slim­line adapter sub­merged entirely into the track with a flush ter­mi­na­tion which, with the inte­grated con­trol device, enables system powers of up to 33 W. The actual Via lumi­naire mod­ules can be locked on the adapter with­out any tools – Click & Light – lead­ing to a wide range of cre­ative appli­ca­tion areas for plan­ners, both for newly planned and exist­ing track instal­la­tions, com­bined with sur­face-mounted, flush-mounted or pen­dant stan­dard or over­head tracks.

There are two shapes to choose from, the Via Semi­cir­cle or the Via Rec­tan­gle. Whereas the Via Semi­cir­cle has an opal dif­fuser with scat­tered direc­tional char­ac­ter­is­tics, a prac­ti­cal range of dif­fer­ent optics is avail­able with the Via Rec­tan­gle, from an opal dif­fuser, micro­prism or mono­cave optics ensur­ing normed UGR 19 for office work­spaces, to pre­ci­sion LMO light-mod­u­la­tion optics with sym­met­ri­cal, asym­met­ri­cal or wall­washer char­ac­ter­is­tics.

Due to the avail­abil­ity of these pre­mium-qual­ity optics, the Via is a system that plan­ners can use both to attain the archi­tec­tural effect of an unin­ter­rupted, vir­tu­ally body­less light line as well as making it an effec­tive tool for aes­thetic and func­tional light­ing – and in the min­i­mum of instal­la­tion time too. With wall­washer optics, for exam­ple, the Via forms a solu­tion for the light­ing of ver­ti­cal sur­faces and attains an extremely high level of uni­for­mity where dis­tances between wall and lumi­naire are min­i­mal. For the light­ing of exhi­bi­tions in gal­leries or muse­ums, asym­met­ri­cal LMO pro­vides pleas­antly gentle, tapered empha­sis of the wall area at eye level where exhibits are gen­er­ally located. In a shared office space how­ever, extremely flex­i­ble, ele­gant but at the same time ergonomic work­sta­tion light­ing can be attained with tracks plus the Via with Mono­cave optics.

Behind the Via’s pre­mium qual­ity PMMA light dif­fuser is a lumi­naire body made of tor­sion-free alu­minium pro­file. It is avail­able in the light colours 3000 K and 4000 K – each in CRI90 high colour ren­der­ing qual­ity, with mod­ules in four lengths 900 mm, 1200 mm, 1500 mm and 1800 mm. The Via adapter module also comes as a DALI ver­sion. With such a wide choice of options, the Via com­prises an inno­v­a­tive system that sup­ple­ments track-based light­ing solu­tions with normed work­space illu­mi­na­tion, asym­met­ri­cal ver­ti­cal and homo­ge­neous gen­eral light­ing. Pure light – across the whole line.
