Retrofit Projects: Modernisation of Luminaires

We do not generally want to replace luminaires that are historical or designed by an architect, although energy efficiency requirements would call for more modern and efficient technologies. However, the solution is easy – Valopaa retrofit projects. New LED technology is installed inside the old luminaires. The projects are easy to implement with Valopaa´s modular product platform.
To begin a retrofit project, information on the model of the luminaire and a picture is needed. Later on a sample luminaire is required for the design process, all to validate the technical choices. The design and production of the retrofit product takes about two months. According to customer needs Valopaa will produce a sample luminaire to ensure that installations and light distributions will meet all requirements. The contractor installs the luminaires according Valopaa guidelines and instructions.

Valopaa retrofit projects:
