Product description

Zumtobel has called on its extensive industry experience to engineer one solution for a wide range of applications. AMPHIBIA meets the varied environmental and lighting requirements of factories, technical rooms, agricultural sites, indoor car parks and outside covered areas – thanks especially to an effective one-material concept. Both the luminaire housing and the diffuser are made from the same high-quality material, composed of PC, PMMA or CHEMO, ensuring optimum resistance over the full lifetime of the solution.

AMPHIBIA can be specified in three versions, depending on the particular project requirements. With a certified rating of IK08, the PC (polycarbonate) luminaire ensures high resistance against impacts and mechanical stress. The PMMA variant offers outstanding protection against a long list of chemicals, including cleaning agents commonly used in the food industry, while the CHEMO product features a unique Zumtobel plastic compound that combines excellent chemical resistance with robust mechanical stability. High IP66 protection against dust and powerful jets of water is standard across the AMPHIBIA range.

The unique Drip-Edge-Effect design meets the strictest hygiene regulations, helping to prevent dirt and detergents from gathering on the fitting. The flat areas where dust and moisture tend to collect on conventional moisture-proof solutions have been replaced by carefully angled surfaces that repel any particles, leading to major improvements in terms of protection and performance. In addition, dedicated versions for extreme temperatures come with a special gear tray and an industry converter, enabling them to withstand ambient temperatures ranging from -35°C to +50°C.

Yet AMPHIBIA also puts the focus on lighting quality. In line with the principles of Active Light, the pioneering Zumtobel concept, four different light distributions cater for specific application requirements. Alongside familiar wide-beam and narrow-beam options, a luminaire with a medium beam for mounting heights of 4-6 metres helps to save energy and cut the number of light points. The AMPHIBIA range is completed by a product with an asymmetric distribution that has been specially engineered (along with the wide-beam variant) to meet the new DIN 67528 norm for lighting in car parks.
