Thorn’s latest luminaires offer an education in lighting

Thorn Lighting, a globally trusted supplier of both outdoor and indoor luminaires for smart and sustainable lighting solutions, has recently launched additions to some of its ranges.


Launched in 1980 for a classroom application, College offered a curved optic which provided good vertical illuminance onto the walls to highlight a students’ work as well as lighting the horizontal of the desks and floor. Today, we have modernised our optics to ensure a balanced lit environment, not just on the desk and walls but on the face of the teacher too so that a pupil can better understand facial expressions. Our product is rated to IP44 to ensure that customers are able to specify the same solution throughout a school to maintain a consistent design language.

Diffusalux 3

The new Diffusalux 3 solution has been designed for secondary areas such as circulation, toilets and stores. Continuing the theme of using a curved profile to provide a well-lit space, new feature LOS, an abbreviation for a light output switch, enables configuration of both the lumen output and the wattage. Rated to IP40 and featuring lockable end caps, this aids easy maintenance and reduces unwanted access. Both College and Diffusalux 3 are available for use with various sensors, wired and wireless lighting control solutions.


Able to be mounted to a surface or a column, the new Contrast is a compact architectural floodlight range that is able to provide various light distributions ranging from a narrow 8 degrees up to a very wide 60 degrees, asymmetric or elliptical. It’s typically used to highlight the architecture of a building or illuminate a public area, and to make this easier we have integrated a basicDIM wireless control. This enables the user to change the colour temperature and light intensity to create the right ambient using a smartphone. If desired we are also able to create a dynamic colour changing scene to make buildings or objects distinctive.
