Now entering its third year of trading as an independent lighting organisation, Ovia continues to invest in new products and solutions for the professional electrical contract market and has just launched its biggest catalogue of products to date. We learn more about some of the delights inside.
At over 400 pages the Ovia issue 3 catalogue boasts an additional 100 pages on the previous edition and brings to designers, contractors and wholesalers a comprehensive product guide that covers the entire range on offer. It includes a raft of new additions as well as some improved products, all brought to market on the back of continual engagement with contractors to ensure that the products and solutions they seek are developed and available through the wholesale channel.
Shining lights for 2022
An impressive 900 individual product lines are featured in Ovia’s latest catalogue, so installers can have confidence that there is a lighting product or solution to meet their every requirement. The comprehensive Ovia range covers a wide range of applications and includes domestic, amenity, controls, commercial, industrial, utility, floodlighting, and emergency lighting. With the aim of filling any gaps in the product portfolio and in response to direct feedback Ovia has had from contractors, the company has added a raft of new, as well as improved products to a number of existing categories. There are new additions to the domestic, amenity, commercial and utility ranges and Ovia has expanded its floodlighting offering to include two brand new product ranges – LED wall packs and LED street lighting. Some of the new products that a likely to become star performers during 2022 include:
Inceptor Ace is a range of adjustable, LED asymmetric floodlights. Asymmetric floodlights are superior in concentrating light where it is needed by using reflectors to direct light in front of the fixture where illuminance is required. With symmetric floodlights, on the other hand, the light is distributed evenly in all directions. The Inceptor Ace floodlights are IP65 rated and are available in a black finish, in 50, 100, 150, 200 and 300W versions, with 4000K cool white LEDs. They’re supplied with a 2 metre pre-wired cable flex for quick and easy installation, and a fully adjustable aluminium mounting bracket, which allows full control of the projection angle. Photocell versions are also available, offering all the features and benefits of the standard fitting. The photocell versions turn the light on when the light level drops under 10-20 lux and turns the light off once the light level is over 30-60 lux. Inceptor Murus is an LED wall pack with CTA Switch and a robust IK10 rated housing that makes it ideal in outdoor settings. The IP-66 rated fitting is designed to be fast and simple to install and is available in 15W and 25W options and in a choice of standard, photocell and emergency versions. The photocell version can assist with energy saving by allowing the light to turn on and off at set lux levels. Inceptor Murus will turn on when the lux level is below 10-30 lux.
Installation of the Murus is quick and easy, thanks to the push fit/piano key terminal block and the floodlight can be Besa box or trunking mounted. All models include a CTA switch, allowing the product to change colour temperature between warm white 3000K, cool white 4000K and daylight 6000K. It is available in anthracite grey or light grey and comes with a five year warranty. The Gator LED street lighting range with CTA switch and IK10 housing is ideal for lighting larger outdoor areas, such as car parks. They are designed to be easy to install via toolless entry and offer 50,000 hour lifetime, 85˚ x 150˚ beam angle and IP66 ingress protection. The shorting cap can be replaced with a photocell sensor to offer an energy saving feature. Gator is available in a grey finish and comes with a five-year warranty.
New commercial products
Added to the commercial offering is the Sprite range of recessed TRIAC dimmable LED downlights with CTA switch. These IP54-rated aluminium downlights are supplied with TRIAC dimmable drivers which are pre-wired with a Fast Fit Flow connector or 3-in-1 multi-function dimming option for quick and easier installation. There are four sizes available – 3”, 5”, 6” and 8” diameter – and a choice of 13, 18, 25 and 35W versions, to cover a wide range of installation types and requirements. E-Sprite is a range of recessed LED downlights with CTA switch. These eco commercial downlights are available in 9, 15, 25 or 30W versions. They are supplied with a CTA switch as standard and are pre-wired with a fast-fit Flow connector or 3-in-1 multi-function dimming option for quick and easier installation.
There have also been new additions to the amenity products section, including a range of new wall lights and ground lights. Within the domestic section, new and improved versions of the popular Nano compact fire-rated LED adjustable and fixed downlight and the Inceptor Omni fire-rated tricolour dimmable downlight have been added. The new Nano V2 and Omni V2 are supplied with push-fit Flow connectors which feature push-in, low maintenance terminals to offer a time-saving benefit for installers. With the driver now incorporated into the Flow connector, this means that insulation can be laid over the fitting. Both also benefit from an improved lumen output.
Free lighting design service
As part of Ovia’s commitment to delivering a first class service, a dedicated lighting design service is available, giving contractors access to free lighting design schemes for their commercial projects. The aim of the free service is to provide expertise in choosing the right products and solutions to create a scheme that meets all the requirements and objectives of the project in question, and that is compliant with all the relevant regulations and standards. With all the information gathered, including drawings and specifications, a Lighting Design Proposal will be prepared. A schedule of lighting and lighting controls will be shared with the Ovia internal and external sales team who will then prepare a quotation. The Lighting Design Proposal and prepared quotation will be sent back to the Ovia sales team member, and the quote will then either go through the wholesaler of choice, or the enquiry will be directed through one of Ovia’s supporting Elite stockists. If drawings are not available, Ovia offers site surveys through its external sales team.
