Why €co²-LED?

  • €co²-LED lamps convert 90% of electric energy into light.
  • €co²-LED lamps have the highest longevity as they last up to 60.000 hours.
  • €co²-LED lamps require hardly any regular maintenance, reducing the need for regular relamping with 80% compared to classic fluorescent lamps.
  • €co²-LED lamps consume up to 4 times less energy than traditional fluorescent lighting.
  • With €co²-LED lamps your energy consumption is about 5 Watt per square meter per year. This is the objective of the EU regulations.
  • The devices €co²-LED offers you today were not on the market 3 months ago only.
  • €co²-LED lamps have an output of 115-120 lumens per watt, which make them the most energy-efficient lamps in the world.
  • €co²-LED light approaches daylight in optimal conditions. 85% of all colors are true to nature.
  • €co²-LED does not aim at design or lighting luminaires but on the ratio power / light output.
  • €co²-LED  luminaires meet the IEC 60598 standard.
  • €co²-LED drivers are made in Germany and are fully compliant with European regulations regarding fire safety.
  • €co²-LED lamps do not contain chromium or other polluting substances.
  • €co²-LED lamps are dimmable to 1%.
  • The glass tubes around €co²-LED lamps have Ingress Protection level IP 65. 6 stands for complete protection against contact, no ingress of dust. 5 stands for protection against water jets. They are at present not suitable for continuous immersion in water.
  • €co²-LED lamps have protection class III (SELV compliant) endorsed by the EU.
  • The EU is committed to phasing out energy inefficient lighting in aligment to a strict timetable: EU regulations 20 20 20 stipulate a 20% energy and CO² reduction by the year 2020.
  • Ikea has chosen to implement these products in all its stores worldwide after an intensive and lengthy investigation.
