SHAPES AND STRUCTURES
Spectral are one of the leading brands in architectural lighting when it comes to ring and shape formations. They have being producing such products for nearly 20 years and were earlier adopters of LED sources back in 2008. LED’s liberated our design potential back then and today we offer a comprehensive range of choices to suit any project requirements.
Many projects in many sectors have trusted Spectral to deliver high performance and high quality structures that will not only last for many years to come but also be maintainable for many years to come under our Circular Economy Responsible Light manifesto.

CIRCLES, SQUIRCLES AND MORE
Spectral offer a range of standard sized rings for easy specification purposes, mostly from their STORA-LK ranges. However we offer all sorts of size variations and shape derivatives using our H-PROFIL system. These can be configured to create circles, ovals, squares and squircles (which are a hybrid design of circles and squares). Our bespoke service will also allow you to draw up your own shape and sizing where we can work directly from your CAD design. This is popular where we need to match up to a structural feature of a building such as a lightwell and centre feature.

Creating structures as an integrated feature of your building requires precision and good coordination. They also require sturdy construction for reliable installation. Spectral have been trusted on many prestigious buildings to deliver such products and systems and will coordinate delivery of as few parts as possible, to make installation simple. As much pre-assembly from our factory is key. Constraints of access to the buildings are our only limitation.

Spectral has strong heritage in heritage. Our ring chandeliers have been delivered on projects all over Europe and are designed appropriately for longevity as well as serviceability in the future. The design is classic raw structure that echoes the traditional ring candle pendant chandeliers or years gone by. Because of constraints of working in historic buildings, Spectral can embed discrete wireless technology to control the chandeliers with any additional wiring.

Of course, Spectral can offer most available paint finishes as options. However we can also offer special textured finishes such as burnished finishes, faux wood transfer finishes as well as fabric applications if required.

When our standard product derivates are not enough then Spectral’s team can also work on special custom products as one-off pieces. To keep costs sensible we always try to work with standard internal components and have modular framework systems that can be used to craft any shape. From there on we can adapt these structures to incorporate requirements such as speakers, laser-cut detailing and even cinema projectors. We really can cover most requirements.
For the purposes of quality control we will generally pre-build the structure to ensure everything goes together correctly and then label up the parts to ensure the correct sequence of assembly. Above all we have the team of people with the experience to deliver these very special projects.
