Sylvania Leads The Retro Revolution
- Published: Monday, 24 July 2017 12:46
Sylvania has expanded its range of ToLEDo™ Retro lamps to give architects, specifiers, installers and consumers even more choice. The hugely successful lamp collection truly replicates the look and feel of traditional incandescent and halogen lights and is one of the largest selections available on the market.
The improved range includes new dimmable and non-dimmable versions in a range of lamp shapes.
The new ToLEDo Retro dimmable V2 lamps now share same construction design as the popular non-dimmable range and no longer feature a white plastic band around the base, making them much more aesthetically appealing.
Along with new dimmable versions, Sylvania has also extended the range by adding innovative new variants including the 1531lm A67 and 1531lm Globe as the replacement for the 100W incandescent lamps and a 250lm T25 lamp, which is an energy efficient replacement for incandescent cooker hood lamps.
Available in GLS, Candle, Ball, T25, ST64 and Globe shapes, the ToLEDo Retro lamps offer a comprehensive range of colour temperatures – MagmaGlow (1700K), Candlelight (2000K and 2400K), Homelight (2700K) and Cool white (4000K) – to create the perfect setting in any environment.
Anuj Vasu, Senior Product Manager for Feilo Sylvania comments, “Sylvania pioneered the introduction of retro inspired dimmable and non-dimmable LED lamps and the range has been hugely successful. We are delighted to be able to now offer our customers even more choice and allow them to create the look and feel they require. With their improved performance and design style, we are sure our customers are going to love the new ToLEDo Retro models as much as the original versions.”
The lamps utilise innovative Filament Chip Technology (FCT) that ensures a 300° omni-directional light distribution that is similar to incandescent and provides a sparkling lit effect. FCT also guarantees a cooler burning temperature compared to standard LED lamps and excellent heat dissipation. The combination of a high performance FCT, linear LED filament construction and premium gas-fill creates a truly ground-breaking lamp with up to 116lm/W for dimmable and 134lm/W for non-dimmable types.
With dimmable and non-dimmable options as standard, the ToLEDo Retro is the first of its type to achieve up to A++ Energy ratings. The entire range also delivers best-in-class lumen efficacy to help reduce CO2 emissions. Customers can benefit from a payback period of less than one year with up to 92% reductions in energy consumption, making the ToLEDo Retro ideal in both style and performance. The dimmable models have also been extensively tested to ensure it can be dimmed smoothly from 100% to 10%.
