Knightsbridge’s SpektroLED EVO expands downlight options

The new SpektroLED EVO downlight from Knightsbridge is an advanced evolution of the company’s SpektroLED. Building on the versatility and flexibility of its predecessor, EVO offers selectable wattages, colour temperatures and six interchangeable bezel finishes and comes in three versions: fixed, tilt and smart.


When it was launched, Knightsbridge says that the configurable SpektroLED downlight represented a leap forward in versatility and choice for lighting projects; offering unparalleled choice in performance and style in one package, doing away with the need to specify multiple LED lamp types. 


Expanding these permutations of wattage, colour temperature and bezel choice, the ultra-low profile SpektroLED EVO Fixed, Tilt and Smart offers a 108-downlights-in-one range solution.


Depending on the required illumination, either 5W (up to 465 lumens) or 7W (up to 795 lumens) can be pre-selected via a switch on the lamp body. Once chosen, there are four CCTs available – 2700K, 3000K, 4000K and 6000K – and the desired colour temperature can be selected by a sliding switch. The LED beam angle is 60° and the tilt variant can be adjusted to 90° as required.


Further customisation is possible through the bezel options that allow the lamp to complement or contrast with a room’s decor or colourways. The bezels come in a choice of six stylish finishes, from popular white and matt black to brushed and polished chrome, and brushed and antique brass.


The downlights are fire-rated for solid timber, web joist and I-joist installation for up to 90 minutes depending on the material and are IC-rated for retention of efficiency of mineral wool insulation in the ceiling void. With an IP65 rating from below, EVO is suitable for use in bathrooms and wet rooms.


As implied in its name, the smart EVO can be controlled for colour, temperature and on/off using Knightsbridge’s proprietary SmartKnight app. 



Installation, as with all Knightsbridge products, is straightforward. Each unit, which has a low-profile design, features cleverly engineered first and second-fix power connectors with loop-in/loop-out terminals that can be terminated and hidden away while other works are finished. 


The downlights can then be simply plugged in to complete the installation after decoration, avoiding the issue of paint-damaged bezels. The connectors also allow the luminaire to be removed for maintenance or even re-programming by simply unplugging them. The bezels for SpektroLED EVO Fixed are magnetic, making installation and customisation even speedier.


For retail, commercial and hospitality applications, a SpektroLED EVO emergency kit is available for maintained and non-maintained use and offers a three-hour emergency duration.


Once installed, SpektroLED EVO will give 50,000 hours of rated LED life and can be used with leading and trailing-edge dimmers should the need arise, although compatibility should be verified beforehand. A five-year warranty guarantees peace of mind.
