Almost 25 years ago, we set a new standard in the illumination of lift shafts with our FixLicht shaft lighting. This first pluggable shaft lighting worldwide is still in service today in thousands of lift shafts. But the successful time of the shaft lighting FixLicht now comes to an end.
In the last few years it has been increasingly accepted to use LED bands for shaft lighting, which are more efficient and easy to install. Additionnally, there is a planned EU prohibition of T8 fluorescent tubes starting in 2023.
The production of our lamp "FixLicht 3P EVG with cover" requires a high level of work and material input and the purchase of special products (e.g. injection moulded parts, profiled sheets) from various suppliers. Due to the significant reduction of the total production, the profitability of the lamp is hardly given anyway. The situation is recently complicated by the fact that an important supplier has filed for insolvency. As a consequence, the availability of important components can no longer be guaranteed in the future.
W+W Aufzugkomponenten have therefore decided to cease production with immediate effect and to discontinue all products of the "FixLicht 3P IP20 EVG" series from its product range.
This concerns especially the following articles:
FixLicht 3P EVG with cover (Art.no. 009396), single lamp
FixLicht 3P STD xL xM, complete packages
Of course you will have a last-time-buy option until 31.06.2020 in line with the discontinuation. Please consider that in the meantime we can no longer guarantee stock availability.
