Chalmit Curie Elite Recessible Luminaire Details

The Curie Elite range of Zone 1 fluorescents is available in normal and emergency versions. It is designed for use in Oil & Gas and Marine environments where it provides working, recessible emergency and escape lighting. The body is made from zinc coated sheet steel and the diffuser from prismatic polycarbonate with textured side facing down. Where it meets the ceiling apeture the body is fitted with a flipper seal providing excellent sealing against surface irregularities. 

The range is flexible to allow luminaires to be recessed into either plasterboard and modular (600x600mm & 600x1200mm) ceiling types. The control gear and batteries are mounted internally on a gear tray and access for lamp replacement and maintenance is simple and easy. 

The emergency version has excellent emergency light output and duration in accordance with emergency lighting standards. Comprehensive self-testing periodically confirms the availability of sufficient emergency duration.
