Sylvania Launches RUBICO Range

Sylvania RubicoSylvania Luminaires, part of the Havells-Sylvania group of leading lighting brands, now offers the Rubico range of office lighting products.

Sylvania Rubico provides contactors with a price-competitive, easy-to-install range of office luminaires and the full portfolio ensures Havells-Sylvania is a one-stop shop for all office-lighting requirements.

Within the Sylvania Rubico range there is a choice of three different optics: a micro-prism optic (MPO), a louvre with Satin wings and a louvre with perforated wings. These options allow contractors and specifiers to deliver exactly the right brightness and light distribution required by the project. Sylvania Rubico is available in 600 x 600mm as well as 1200 x 300mm sizes for the MPO version.

The easy-to-install luminaire comes supplied with Sylvania T5 fluorescent lamps and achieves 89% LOR using the Rubico Louvre with satin wings 2 x 24W lamp package. It has a shallow mounting depth of just 75mm to minimise intrusion into ceiling cavities and allows for simple and cost-effective installation, whatever the project. Suitable for ‘lay-in’ and ‘pull-up’ installations, Rubico is designed, developed, and manufactured in-house at Havells-Sylvania’s Saint-Etienne factory in France.

“The key principles behind Sylvania’s ranges include high performance, easy installation and competitive pricing”, says Mark King, Senior Strategic Business Unit Manager at Havells-Sylvania. “Rubico is the perfect example of this philosophy and now the range is complete we can offer our customers the very best office lighting solution.”

As standard, Rubico has both emergency and DALI-compatible control gear with an air-handling model available as special order. Importantly, all Rubico versions meet UK legislation BS EN 12464-1 (2011). The satin wing and perforated wing versions of Rubico also incorporate Sylvania COSS louvre 1595 technology for high performance and 98% reflectivity.

Rubico is extremely easy to install and importantly allows for less luminaires to be installed while providing the same light output. Sylvania has recently completed a project in Birmingham that features 445 Rubico luminaires, which were selected purely for their LOR performance and thus cost benefits. This impressive performance means the lighting scheme is extremely energy efficient and can utilise fewer luminaires.

“Rubico is part of Havells-Sylvania’s Everyday campaign, a new initiative designed to make specification and installation of Lumiance and Sylvania products even easier. For more information on Rubico or the Everyday campaign, visit”
