The slim sectionlantern, in aluminium and finishedin cool, textured grey, is set toadd positive design to the modernenvironment by day – and warm,friendly light by night.Dyana’s optical secret lies in it’sseparate Optiblock ® lampcompartment which, sealed toIP66, prevents ingress of dust,moisture and insects.

Available in post-top,side mounting and can also bemounted onto one of thecomplementary brackets enablinga deeper, wider design statementto be made.6

TeleaFlexible lighting control andmonitoring are the two centraltasks of this innovative lightingcontrols system, which providesboth increased safety and costsavings at unrivalled costs ofownership in existing as well asnew lighting installations.Utilising either Power Line orRadio Frequency datatransmission, it is the idealcommunication-capable outdoorlighting management system.Thanks to an intuitive web-basednavigation, the CentralManagement server allowsremote management of individuallight points to be performed in thesimplest possible way.State of the art controls are bestapplied to the cutting-edgeoptical design of Thorn luminairesjust as in the new Oraclestreet lantern.9
