IN VEGA LICHT
With sophistication comes technique,
finesse and art to combine man and science into an
art form, a statement to show that the consultants
and end users as connoisseurs had arrived with an
appreciation of the finer things in life.
Vega Licht in this latest catalogue
have provided luminaires which appears unchanged from
below the ceiling but is able to direct light and
yet allow for different beam angles ie; to perform
the task with a touch of finesse almost unnoticed
from behind the scene.
Non adjustable wall wash luminaires
to make rooms and space bigger than what it is, to
create an illusion to the end user in an unobtrusive
Luminaire using higher intensity
lamps as well as the existing lamps for use in various
ceiling heights ranging from high ceilings in grand
ballrooms and lobbies to lower standard ceilings.
Combining this with the adjustable
wall wash luminaires with variable beam angles Vega
is now able to use the same perceived fitting to give
even illumination even with areas of sloping ceilings.
Coupled with this we have also
incorporated the ability to use Vega’s luminaires
with Vega lenses and filters for various uses and
lens to create a wider and softer
beam than what would normally be available with the
red filters to light up yet without
heating up the target object of illumination.
Violet filters to filter out harmful
ultra violet rays to especially sensitive and expensive
artworks and also artworks which are vulnerable to
lenses to transform circular light
beams to elongated light beams so that the light is
cut to fit the object of illumination.
conversion filters to recreate the
impression of daylight even in a windowless room by
changing the color of light from the lamp source.
The need to have bright spaces
without glare even for low ceilings have prompted
Vega to offer in this catalogue high powered compact
fluorescent lamps and metal halide lamps with cross
louvres and matt glass diffusers.
Another new addition to this catalogue
is our range of Ingress Protected Series (I.P. rated)
of luminaires which allows for use in wet environments
and yet its pleasing design with stainless steel not
only is aesthetically pleasing but also durable. An
ideal for use in harsh environments.
For those who are interested
in exterior luminaires,
we have the Vega Exterior Catalogue to meet such
The luminaire plays a part to
provide the following for effective task lighting:
1. Adequate illumination of the task and its details.
2. The task area should also be free from unwanted
reflections or glare.
3. The relative luminance of the task area and its
surroundings - where task area should have slightly
higher luminance than its surroundings.
4. Task visibility in special cases can be enhanced
through the character or direction of the light or
the avoidance of unnecessary distractions.
Wherever practicable some provision
for natural light should be allowed but this always
needs to be supplemented with artificial lighting
to provide sufficient lighting for service illuminance.
This is where the lighting product must supplement
as well as complement the natural lighting.
To prevent excessive discomfort
glare light must be limited in the angular zone from
about 45° to 90° from the downward vertical.
Glare control is especially crucial
in Video Display Terminal (VDT) areas where reflection
can result in eyestrain, fatigue and a drop in productivity.
In general a cut off angle of
40° is sufficient for VDT use and in many countries
there are different regulations governing the cut
off angle based on the use and period of usage of
the VDT. A 40° cut off angle will provide an even
horizontal and vertical illuminance creating uniformity
in lighting. With a high cut-off angle we would be
able to achieve excellent glare control at the same
time creating dramatic illuminance.
A low cut off angle would have
less glare control but would be able to generate good
this latest Vega catalogue we have more options of
louvres and matt glass diffusers used in conjunction
with high intensity lamps to reduce direct and indirect
glare yet giving a generally high level of illuminance.
Ambient soft general lighting
to humanize space, design and hard architectural surfaces
helps to fill space with an inviting overall gentle
glow. Modern lighting design bounces illumination
off walls and ceilings so the lighting is sensed only
after being reflected. Thus glare and bright spots
are avoided and the light is flattering because it
does not cast harsh shadow's on people's faces.
wall washing the lighting will not only create a pleasing
ambiance but will also make the space appear wider
than it actually is.
our optics are made of aluminium (no plastic) to maintain
the highest of quality in our product.
The optical reflector is designed
using computer simulation to ensure optimization of
all aspects of design consideration with optimal light
output ratio and optimal glare control for ensuring
energy efficiency with visual comfort.
Our luminaire comes with the option
of floating glass disc to enhance the aesthetic design
of the downlight.
this edition of Vega we have allowed for higher wattages
of lamps to be used hence allowing for our range of
energy saving compact fluorescent luminaires to be
used for much higher ceilings.
Highlighting of display objects
can be done with a wide range of lamps and using adjustable
downlights or a variety of other options like spotlights
mounted on track, wall, ceiling or floor mounted using
different accessories such as filters, lenses and
gobos. These can significantly bring out the effect
required of the object displayed.
This method of accent lighting
uses carefully focused beams to illuminate an object,
artwork, plant or architectural detail. Artistic effect
is the main goal. Often accent lighting is designed
to create the impression that the illumination is
provided by a source that does not provide much lighting
offers in this catalogue adjustable downlights (both
rotatable and tiltable) which allows for ease of directing
the light beam for different types of light sources.
To further enhance this we also allow for different
beam angles of luminaires which coupled with our various
available lenses and filters allows for a multitude
of uses and effects to be created to meet the design
requirements of todays' consultants and their ever
Vega luminaires are manufactured in accordance to international best
practice with quality assurance controls and the use of high quality German
components being applied at every stage of the manufacture. The Vega
Quality Management System for Design and Development, Production and

In compliance with international numbering systems, we have revamped
the whole numbering system for our products with the new product
numbers in bold and the old numbers in italic in brackets for example:
Vega offers in this catalogue a whole range of luminaires from our old
catalogue which was streamlined and added in with new programmes
for trimless luminaires, lensed washers, double focus, LED enhanced
luminaires and luminaires for low ceiling clearance.
