punctum ® lux
Luminous. Striking. Unique.
in a nightly, urban context
Ideas. Passion. Perfection.
INSTA and SWS
The development and realisation of the punctum ® lux point fi xture is based on cooperation between the two
companies INSTA and SWS. Only by joining and meshing the knowledge and experiences in two special
areas – electronic building-system engineering and glass construction hardware – has it become possible
to implement a continuously convincing total solution. The fact is that linking the INSTA LED technology with
the SWS punctum ® concept portrays the innovative strength of both companies along with the willingness to
hold open dialogues during committed cooperation. You can fi nd out more about our cooperation partner,
INSTA, at www.insta.de.
punctum ® lux brings light into dark
With the patented point fi xture, the punctum ® lux, glass facades can be completely illuminated at night.
That turns entire buildings into luminous elements that set accents, create atmosphere and call attention to
themselves. The integrated light emitting diodes (LEDs), well protected in the point fi xtures, are controlled
and supplied with current based on a safe and uncomplicated low-volt technology. The colour of the light
can be freely selected from the RGB range (16.7 million colours) via a sequencer. Connecting to the digital
building engineering via a bus system facilitates comfortable light scenarios control and programming.
Practical advantage: The LED low volt technology is maintenance and energy effi cient – for example, LEDs
can be replaced with a fl ick of the wrist.

Intelligent down to the last detail
punctum ® is an innovative, highly loadable mounting system for demanding glass façade design. The
interior swivel head absorbs the pane forces and conducts them into the supporting frame – the occurring
loads are ideally distributed. The practical reset function and easy system adjustability clearly simplifi es
installation. In addition, the reduced stainless steel design supports modern architecture. As punctum ® has
a general building permit (AbZ), there is no need to apply for one in each individual case. With over 300,000
extant type statics, we additionally support you with rapid and simple static calculations for your glass
Much is possible
The opportunities to set glowing accents with punctum ® lux are extraordinarily versatile. Along with use as
style-forming elements in urban architecture, „Corporate Architecture“ stands in special focus – corporate
headquarters that shine in the company colours or that are put into the focus of attention with alternating
light scenarios. Because intensive moods and atmospheres can be created and supported with light, you
can use punctum ® lux to implement new creative solutions, for example in shop fi ttings and exhibitionstand
construction along with the entire wellness segment.

punctum ® lux – a vision turned into reality
„Impossible. That will never work.“ At fi rst, many experts were unable to imagine a point fi xture with integrated
LED glass façade lighting. For us, such critical statements were motivation and challenge enough to
develop just such a point fi xture despite all resistance and diffi culties. Meanwhile the vision has become a
patented product that securely holds glass facades and moves them into a completely new light. Builders
and architects can illuminate entire buildings in any conceivable colours desired, setting powerful lighting
accents in the nightly urban context. Use punctum ® lux for visionary architecture that distinctly sets itself
apart from the city silhouette day and night.
