Solite Europe Limited are part of the FW Thorpe group, which comprises of eight lighting companies serving different sectors of the professional lighting market. As part of the FW Thorpe Group we collaborate closely with our sister company Thorlux Lighting to develop LED based solutions that are technically and mechanically sound and provide best in market efficacy with excellent returns on investment for clean area, healthcare and custodial applications.
Thorlux designs, manufactures and tests the vast majority of its own LED electronic systems including the lenses for precise optical control. By carefully considering end of life scenarios, for example, LED failures, solder joint failures and isolated component failures Thorlux ensures new designs have on-going system reliability even when individual components fail.
The company history of over 80 years, running into thousands of years of combined employee experience, ensures every aspect of lighting a space is carefully considered - a requirement all the more important as LED lifetimes are now expected to reach 50,000 to 100,000 hours or even more!
