OWA UK - Ceilings in a New Light

OWA Ceiling

OWA expands ceiling programme with the addition of energy-saving LED lights.

Lifecycle building management requires the utmost efficiency in all building functions – for the entire lifecycle of the building. This means ceilings have to fulfil an increasing number of tasks. Ceilings equipped with modern LED lights improve the energy balance of a building. The new OWA solutions offer much more than this though: their high luminance efficiency, their simple installation and their excellent design make them a very appealing option.

Better light quality, lower consumption

Efficient working in the office, with daylight-like light quality: modern LED technology can now illuminate even large rooms effectively. As a leading ceiling manufacturer, OWA is picking up on the trend and bringing modern LED integrated lights onto the market for the “Trapeze” and “Flexo” ceiling systems.

Lighting design for a feel-good atmosphere

The modules in this line can be combined freely with one another in order to create varied surface textures. The narrow, frameless 72 to 150-W inset lights with colourless satin-effect cap integrate harmoniously into the surface texture of the relevant system and radiate a pleasant, anti-glare light – ideal for creating an atmosphere of well-being, perfect for work and concentration in the office.

It makes sense to upgrade

Something particularly interesting for existing buildings are the LED lights from the “Flexo” series, which are available in the standard formats 600 x 600 mm, 1,200 x 600 mm and 1,200 x 300 mm, and which can be easily installed in the existing suspended ceiling systems. The energy savings quickly compensate for the cost of the upgrade, and grants are even available for this measure under certain circumstances.

Stars + Stripes for distinguished rooms

Light profiles draw the eye to the “Cloud” and “Square” baffle modules. These baffles have been developed in collaboration with Hamburg-based star designer Hadi Teherani, and are particularly suitable for use under thermally activated ceilings or ceilings in existing buildings. Both baffle modules can be combined to create striking formations. Special LED light packages, so-called stripes, are mountedabove the baffles, creating chic ambience-light effects – a decidedly stylish option!

Light in new harmony

Anyone who favours the classic suspended solution with quadratic surface textures will love OWAlifetime LED, a new energy-saving light with long-life LED technology that is integrated into the grid. Its even light distribution illuminates the room harmoniously in a neutral white light.

Pure understatement: light profiles

There’s a new eye-catcher in the suspended ceiling system: OWAlight light profiles. These modules are available in the lengths 600 or 1,200 mm and complement the ceiling system S 15b Consult. Its benefits? A functional, discreet look with a high level of light efficiency and low energy consumption. The process is simple: OWAlight is built into the ceiling grid like a system-compatible cross tee and is delivered ready to plug in.

Effective combinations

It’s amazing: the module is not recognisable as a light profile in the ceiling grid, so the ceiling’s homogenous overall appearance is preserved. A particularly striking look is achieved by combining OWAlight light profiles with the new Trapeze and Pix systems from the OWAconsult® collection.
