TRIF manufactures a broad range of IP68 and IP69K outdoor LED luminaires: in-pavement, linear, landscape, architectural, streetscape, underwater luminaires, lighting poles, and structures with LED backlighting.
Why is it necessary to install IP68 led lamps in Russia?
Nowadays the majority of outdoor lighting fixtures available in the market feature the protection class IP67 or lower. Choosing a luminaire, keep in mind the IP67 standard provides for functioning only during short-term immersion in water! Such lights are not tailored to work in the Russian climate zones, amid heavy rains, snowfalls and frosts down to -50 °C.
October to March, the greater part of Russia's territory experiences below-zero temperatures and frequent thaws. The soil is frozen, so the ground-mounted lights have to withstand the significant deformations of the frozen ground. In urban environments, chemical agents are often used; the luminaires are subject to mechanical impacts every time the streets are cleared from snow and ice. This means, for half a year the luminaires work in ice or water mixed with salt and sand, exposed to the impacts of heavy-duty vehicles and studded snow tires. With that, the groundwater control and drainage systems fail to work as the ground is frozen down to 1 meter deep.
