Innovation in Lighting Technology!

VALDUR's patent-pending technology is a groundbreaking solution for heat dissipation within non-metallic luminaire housings. This technology enables effective heat dispersion, critical for maintaining the lifespan and functionality of LED components in composite-based luminaires Our close collaboration with Signify/Philips ensures access to high-quality components and expertise in LED technology. The combination of POLAB's innovative design and Philips' technical knowledge results in a luminaire that stands out for its high performance and energy efficiency.


This advanced heat dissipation technology is critical to ensuring the expected lifespan of LED diodes in our composite-based fixtures.


By effectively dissipating heat, the system keeps the diodes within their optimal temperature range, crucial for maintaining their performance and durability, especially in demanding environments.


LED Lens Optics from BJB Light Technology 

Beyond the standard lens chosen for VALDUR, we offer a wide variety of lenses from BJB, specially tailored for our Philips diode modules. This allows us to customize and adjust the lighting to specific requirements or preferences.
