MID Lighting

MID Lighting have recently had the good fortune to work on the Grade II listed building The Maltings, Princes Street, Ipswich.

MID worked in conjunction with Mark Pertwee, Pertwee Estates, Roberto Esposito, Esposito Architecture Limited, and Steve Attle and the team from Ceetech Ltd, to create a lighting design that complements the historic character of this unique 1820’s building, but with a 20th century feel.
This project provided difficult challenges which were overcome by our experienced design team incorporating up to 22 different types of luminaires to ensure we enhanced each of the buildings unique 23,000 sq ft of new office spaces.

The project was led by Donna Snell, Sales Executive, Eliot Stevens, Lighting Designer and Manny Stone, Technical Manager.

Jordan Reflectors Limited

Frost-UV anti-viral luminaires from Jordan Reflectors Limited

This attractive recessed luminaire offers effective general lighting for many commercial, educational, healthcare and retail applications and incorporates two LED modules providing UVc radiation at 270nm. These UVc modules are controlled by a micro-wave presence detector ensuring the UVc is automatically switched off when someone enters the area therefore avoiding potential health risks associated with the invisible UVc radiation. The Frost-UV also features blue LEDs to indicate that the UVc modules are operating.

The kill rate depends upon the distance between the luminaires and the working surface; the type and density of bacteria/viral particles; the material and texture of the surface; and the length of time the UVc radiation is present.



Lizzy – modular suspended luminaire by Ansorg

The Lizzy model unites variational design with perfect quality of light. It can easily be installed anywhere in the store and the E27 lampshades are simple to replace. It can also be perfectly integrated in existing lighting concepts as a source of high-quality and flexibly adaptable retail light. It replaces the generally weak, ineffective lighting of decorative suspended luminaires with highest quality, professional LED light. For a perfect match of interior design and lighting concepts. The light is directed by modern lens systems which ensure consistent light quality, temperature and colour throughout the store.



Centralise • Optimise • Economise

The Ethernet-based iDrive® centralised LED driver range provides the optimum power solution for the increasingly smart, connected world.  iDrive® centralised LED drivers drastically simplify maintenance and are designed for installation in 19” 1U server racks in maintenance rooms, enabling easy access when required.

The centralised drivers are capable of driving up to 36 individual luminaires from a single driver, up to a distance of 300m away, which is particularly advantageous for installations involving high ceilings. Remote installation of the LED driver well away from the luminaires also reduces disruption caused by maintenance downtime.

The range includes constant current and constant voltage variants, with each driver supporting multiple protocols, including DALI, DMX, RDM, Ethernet, sACN & Art-Net3 and Art-Osc.




Simmtronic and Mackwell’s Universal Sensor with Integrated Emergency Light wins Emergency Lighting Product of the Year at the Lux Awards 2020

The collaboration combines Simmtronic’s market leading sensor technology with Mackwell’s XY-Fi – the world’s smallest emergency lighting module.
