Archdale, North Carolina, USA, July 19, 2017Question: Why does lighting have to be so difficult? Answer:It doesn’t—especially with Loox LED Lighting from Häfele. It’s truly plug and play. Simply select your preferred lighting style, add a driver and switching option and then find your nearest outlet. Simply put, this could be the easiest and most versatile upsell opportunity your shop could bring to practically any project.

“The shops that see the possibilities of what can be done with our LED Lighting and the value it adds to their projects are also seeing a real impact where it counts—their wallets,” said Jeff Ratkus, product manager at Häfele America Co. “It also doesn’t hurt that the system is perhaps one of the most installer-friendly options available on the market today.”

Key recent Häfele Loox LED additions being shown at AWFS 2017 include:

LED Ribbon & LED Silicone Ribbon
The latest generation of light ribbon and peel & stick silicone ribbon from Häfele’s Loox line offers brighter light while offering even more LEDs per linear foot. For ease of installation, ribbons now include more and tighter cut points so that they can fit into any furniture or cabinet applications—even the smallest of spaces needing light. Peel & stick silicone ribbon can be mounted using the included 3M backing tape while LED ribbon can be mounted in a profile for a diffused, finished look. Whether for general or task lighting, each is available in a variety of light colors to ideally fit your design and style.

Modular Pucks, Recess & Flush Fixtures
Puck lights from Häfele’s Loox line, ideal for kitchen and bath cabinetry, furniture or closet applications, are now available in surface mounted or recess mounted styles with a choice of round or square trim rings. These stylish, IP44 rated fixtures can also be used in any area prone to condensation, small splashes or moisture. An updated line of finish options compliments any décor and includes nickel matt, aluminum matt, bronze, anthracite, brushed stainless steel, black and white trim colors.

New Switching Options
A wide array of new and innovative options have been added to Häfele’s already robust switching selections to further increase customization and open design possibilities. In addition to on/off, door triggered on/off, and touch and touch free on/off, the Loox line has added toggle on/off switches; in-line, profile mounted touch switches you can simply touch to turn on, off or dim; capacitive switches which mount within furniture or cabinetry and activate with hand motions; flush mounted infrared heat, sensitive dimmer switches controlled by hand motions, a new line of surface modular mount switch, and remote controlled switching which allows for custom programming based on your design and mood.

New Mounting Profiles
Häfele’s selection of LED lighting profiles have been expanded to include a wider variety of mounting angles such as 90° for direct, perpendicular lighting coverage and 40° angle profiles which are great for lighting rear counter areas. These new light channel covers allow for diffused, even light in practically any application. Loox now also offers a rounded, low-profile profile exclusively for drawer lighting use. Lastly, these new profiles are able to be cut to any length, allowing them to fit anywhere you might seek to bring diffused light.
