Glamox Luxo extends its medical lighting range with the LHH

Following the successful launch of the Carelite medical luminaire in late 2015, Norway’s leading designer and manufacturer of industrial lighting, Glamox Luxo, has extended its range featuring SteriTouch protection.

The new LHH is an evolution of the original medical examination luminaire, which is in daily use by healthcare professionals worldwide. The frictionless horizontal and vertical movement makes LHH the most flexible examination luminaire on the market – and the best in its class. LHH is designed especially for challenging conditions requiring good light, for example, during examinations and treatment procedures in the health sector; in hospitals, health centres and consulting rooms.

A version of LHH with adjustable colour temperature is available. This makes it possible to switch between warm white and cool white light, depending on the task at hand. The warm white setting is ideal for dermatological examinations, while the cool white setting aids in the recognition of blood vessels.

LHH is coated with SteriTouch® antimicrobial powder coating, which prevents the growth of bacteria, mould and biofilm. The light source is also covered with tempered glass, which means that LHH can be cleaned with acetone or any other cleaning agent used in hospitals. Importantly, the antimicrobial performance of SteriTouch® is also unaffected by the use of cleaning chemicals.

Understanding the impact of functional additives

Whilst it is always encouraging to see the positive effects of functional additives on the antimicrobial performance of a polymer solution, it is also important for many final applications to consider how the use of such additives might affect the overall mechanical performance of the base polymer.
