As award-winning designers of commercial lighting, Norway’s Glamox Luxo is the supplier of choice for cutting edge products in the healthcare industry.
Its latest offering, Carelite, has been specified with SteriTouch® antimicrobial powder coat, bringing together two established brands with unique benefits. Aleksander Borgenhov, one of Norway’s most renowned industrial designers, has combined functionality with thoughtful detail to produce sleek patient lighting with a range of user benefits.
The new Carelite is a natural development of the original patient’s bed head luminaire, which can be found in hospital wards and patient rooms all over the world. The use of modern LED light sources has made it possible to reduce the size of the new lamp head, compared with the original. Carelite’s LEDs are extremely energy efficient, and have an incredible life span of 50,000 hours or more.
SteriTouch® powder coat offers excellent lifelong performance against bacteria, biofilm and mould, yet Carelite can also be routinely cleaned with any detergent in use at a hospital including acetone, with no effect to the antimicrobial performance.
