Woodhouse Teams up with LEC-Lyon

18 February 2010 16.30 GMT

(UK) - Leading UK lighting and street furniture company, Woodhouse, has reached an exclusive partnership agreement to distribute the comprehensive product range of exterior architectural LED specialists, LEC-Lyon, in the UK.

Set up by the late Pierre Valancogne, one of the first lighting manufacturers in the world to recognise the benefits of LEDs for lighting, LEC-Lyon is the country’s best-known – and oldest – LED luminaire manufacturer, having produced its first LED marker lights back in 1982. The company’s stylish, reliable and superbly engineered LED fixtures are now sold all over the world.

Notable LEC-Lyon installations include the colour-wash lighting on the RIBA building in London, decorative lighting in the Place du Palais Royal in Paris, functional road lighting in the Mont Blanc tunnel in the Alps, ground-recessed decorative lighting for the regeneration of Coventry city centre in the UK and the illumination of fountains in the central square in Chartres (above). A selection of some LEC-Lyon products is shown in the accompanying photo-montage.

LEC-Lyon’s extensive portfolio now includes everything from its signature LED marker lights through to colour-change facade projectors -- and includes ground-recessed spotlights, mast lights, light bars and submersible water fixtures. LEC-Lyon luminaire bodies are made from either anodised aluminium (marine grade for underwater fixtures) or stainless steel and all products are IP67 or IP68 rated – and there are even some IP69K versions for particularly tough locations. LEC-Lyon’s LED products also demonstrate a high quality of thermal control (vital to the long life of LEDs) – and are made to recognised (ISO 14001) ecologically sound design and manufacturing standards.

‘This agreement with LEC-Lyon is an ideal step for us to take in the UK and will put Woodhouse in a great position to take advantage of what is undoubtedly the light source of the future, the LED,’ says Woodhouse managing director, Peter Wear. ‘The styling, build quality and performance of these superb products gels perfectly with Woodhouse’s own design-led values. We look forward to our future collaboration with great excitement.’
