Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT) is pleased to announce our acquisition of the Waveguide product range, following the voluntary liquidation of Birmingham-based Waveguide Lighting Ltd.
The LED-based lighting solution incorporates patented Waveguide light injection technology which uses the total internal reflection (TIR) principle. A single LED is used to illuminate an optically clear light chamber. A reflector is printed along the length of the chamber, causing light to disperse evenly along its length thus avoiding the glare associated with most LED lighting solutions. As there are no secondary optics or diffusers, energy saving is maximised.
William Robson, managing director of CRT, comments: "We have resold Waveguide products for some years as a solution for low bay and office installations. While the excellent energy efficiency of the Waveguide technology is important, it is the quality of the light output which is outstanding. The anti-glare quality of the technology is essential for lower situated luminaires.
“The new product range fits nicely into the Carbon Reduction Technology smart lighting strategy, complimenting the existing product range of commercial and street lighting systems.”
Carbon Reduction Technology is excited to announce the launch of our new line of heritage lanterns: the Kingswood Range.
The new product line features a selection of heritage and ornamental lanterns, including several of the most popular models supplied by public sector favourite Kingswood Lighting in the 1980s and 90s, manufactured by leading French company GHM. All lanterns in the range are fitted with our highly efficient RFX2 gear tray and are available from 2,200°K, presenting an ultra warm look and feel.
"Presentation is fundamental on heritage and ornamental lighting projects," comments CRT director Alan Robson. "Reproduction lanterns add drama and beauty to a scene in a way contemporary style luminaires just cannot match."
The models in the Kingswood Range are available for full replacement projects or as a partial replacement option for lanterns not meeting retrofitting criteria.

Take a look at our latest exciting photography expedition to Renault Trucks South in Reading. The facility recently had a full lighting refit, including high bay, low bay, office and foyer lighting plus a fully integrated smart control and monitoring system.
Re-certifying retrofitted lanterns for a new CE mark is a hot industry topic at the moment. You can learn more about the practicalities, implications and legislation behind re-certification in a six page feature in the Lighting Journal's latest issue:
