The brief was to create an LED strip light suitable for all outdoor, underwater and extreme conditions with a desired waterproof rating of IP68. The new light needed to incorporate and enhance the benefits of emerging LED lighting technologies. It had to be easy to install and achieve efficient and attractive light delivery, in a package which would incorporate seamlessly into its outdoor setting.
The success of a lighting fixture is measured by its ability to direct attention to the subject of its illumination, rather than itself. With this as an underlying premise, the Megabay Outdoor LED Strip lighting system integrates straight forward, modest design features with a waterproof and durable structure.
The product successfully utilises common manufacturing techniques which achieve a cohesive system structure with excellent heat transfer properties to maximise sustainable light efficiency.
The aim on the outset was to keep the product development costs low. Part price was important, but time to market and punctual product delivery was critical to the project’s success.
