HESS, Germany launches a family of new in-ground luminaires:
• HESS sets a higher standard for homogenous façade illumination and glare control
• Elegant designs with new screws
• Several round and rectangular shapes
State of the Art Lighting Technology
ACCADIA is a LED in-ground luminaire product line from HESS, Germany, for façade lighting and wall accenting. The centerpiece of the versatile products is a special Bartenbach-designed reflector. In the asymmetric versions, they provide indirect light with no glare and excellent light distribution – which is currently unique amongst in-ground luminaires.

Light as a Means of Enhancing Architecture
Light plays an increasingly important role as a creative and atmospheric design element: Skillfully deployed, light not only stages attractions, but also makes a significant contribution, as a stylistic means, to the architecture of public spaces and parks.
The HESS ACCADIA product line enables architects and designers to effectively accentuate and stage building façades and architectural features such as columns, arches and sculptures, as well as trees and plants.

HESS ACCADIA In-ground Up-lighters for all Applications
Outstanding lighting results are guaranteed by the reflector technology: unique facet and “spoon reflectors”, developed by Bartenbach, ensure extremely homogeneous light distribution starting from the bottom edge of a surface to be illuminated, without the previously common “dark zones”. The adjustable reflector inclination, either on site or in the factory, ensures best adaptation to the projects.
The product line is available in round and rectangular versions, in five different sizes and wattages from 10W to 27W. All versions are available in different LED configurations for asymmetrical and symmetrical light distributions. Available light colours are 3000K, 4000K and 5700K.
The luminaires’ clean design also meets the highest standards: a black, smooth surface, without any screws, which also ensures maximum impermeability.
For HESS, the market launch of the ACCADIA product line is the prelude to successive development and expansion of its portfolio of sophisticated architectural lighting solutions.

In practice, all the benefits that innovative LED technology has to offer are utilized: high energy efficiency, long lifetime and low maintenance.

 

“Completely new product families at Light + Building 2014”

Avangardo 2

15 Design Families – 80 different Products

With the technically advanced Avangardo 2 collection, lighting and urban planners as well as architects have 15 different luminaire families with 80 variants with high quality treated surfaces at hand. Their feature: Each luminaire family includes several product groups – from in-ground luminaires to wall mounted luminaires through to illuminating bollards – and all that in a consistent design. As a result, holistic lighting concepts for different lighting requirements can be realized and thus the desired lighting atmosphere can be achieved.
