SunCentral has broken into the Australian market after signing an exclusive partnership with LightEFX to bring its intelligent skylight products to the Australian market.
The $4.15 million agreement gives LightEFX, a division of Fibre Optic Cable which specialises in natural daylight delivery systems and fibre optical lighting, the exclusive right to buy, sell and install SunCentral System sunlighting solutions, including the SunBeamer.
SunCentral chief executive, Guthrie Cox, said the partnership with LightEFX would allow the company to enhance built environments across the country by bringing beautiful outdoor light indoors.
SunCentral offers a way to distribute sunlight up to 50 feet within multi-story buildings, resulting in significantly improved light quality and reducing electric lighting load by up to 75 per cent during business hours.
Using optical components that track the sun autonomously, the SunBeamer works in conjunction with the SunCentral System to produce a stationary collimated beam of light throughout the day, providing natural sunlight to previously inaccessible areas of buildings.
LightEFX chief executive, Ivan Tutic, said, given the state of energy consumption in Australia, his company was a big supporter of natural daylight solutions that created brighter, healthier and more pleasant indoor environments
“Not only does SunCentral have some of the best products in the industry, they have also made them incredibly affordable," he said.
"These products are true game-changers, and we are looking forward to reducing energy consumption while enhancing the occupant experience for businesses across the country.”
In addition to a strong North American presence, SunCentral has been expanding its presence in various international markets, including Japan, Germany, and now, Australia.
