Processing food requires the highest standards on the materials that are used. The DATALUX linear lighting system is the standard when it comes to lighting food processing industries. Not only in the unique design of the luminaires which are dust and watertight, impact-resistant and do not contain hazardous components such as glass. But also because the high-quality LED light sources achieve a color recognition that can not be matched by traditional luminaires.
The DATALUX lighting system is internationally renowned for the spotless application in the most challenging HACCP certified work environments, using challenging cleaning agents and high pressure water hoses. DATALUX line lighting systems are used in meat processors, vegetables and fruit sorters, producers of confectionery, sauces producers and flavor enhancers and herb sorters. The round profile of the luminaire avoids dust accumulation, is easy to keep clean and is easy to assemble. LUMINAID offers various mounting solutions where dirt accumulation is prevented and cleaning remains simple.
