LOOX5 - The essence of four generations of LED light


Light in furniture is no longer an accessory. The interplay of light in the room and light in the furniture has a considerable effect on our well-being. Bright cool light promotes concentration, warm and dimmed light promotes relaxation.


Light planning, however, is not a simple task, as interior designers have to take into account different factors affecting light effects such as furniture materials, colors, hue, reflectivity, placement, and the availability of natural light.


Easy, linear, and logical, Loox – a LED lighting system developed by world-renowned provider of smart home and project solutions Häfele  – has been trusted by many professionals around the globe when it comes to furniture and room lighting. After working closely with many joiner/cabinet maker partners in the industry for a long time, at the 2019 Interzum exhibition in Cologne in May, Häfele presented Loox5, the essence of four generations of LED light and a deep forward pass for the successful industrial implementation of light in furniture. A few months later, the innovative system was also introduced to Vietnamese professionals and expected to be officially available here from the Q1 next year.


Loox5 pays tribute to the demands of the furniture industry with its high reliability, even with around-the-clock operation. The new Häfele lighting system features a significant increase in performance, indispensable for linear lighting that is in great demand in the LED sector. Loox5, with its high-quality LEDs, shines with extraordinary quality of light. It impresses with assembly that easily integrates in furniture production processes, smart and easy-to-use light control, and its connectivity to third-party systems.


New driver with intuitive connections


The heart of the system are new drivers with an installation height of 16mm for 12 and 24 Volt systems, each in three performance classes for small and medium-sized installations, and a driver with an installation height of 38 mm for large installations in 24 Volt systems up to 270 Watts. This top-of-the-range supplier from Häfele's own development and European production delivers an output current of 5A in safe continuous operation, thereby also covering longer installation distances. It also takes care of the safety monitoring of the system. It detects overloaded installations and signals them to the user – the system thinks for itself and is always safe.


High system performance requires high currents, and in order to transmit those safely, a new plug system has been developed for the 5A environment. As before, it is clearly color- and shape-coded for error prevention and facilitation of the installation and even survives a possible improper installation without problems.


Distribution and control in the Loox5 system is accomplished via linearly connected six-way distributors for monochromatic lights with connections for all standard wired switches and sensors from the Loox range. The Mesh six-way distributor for RGB, multi-white and monochromatic lights connects wirelessly with wireless remote controls, wall switches, or third-party wall switches and corresponding sensors. The six outputs on this intelligent distributor are individually configured, and also controlled if desired, via the now-available Häfele Connect Mesh app – an interface for conventional switches is included as well.


To meet different demands, Loox5 also comes in a variety of designs, from strip lights, recess- and surface-mounted profiles, spotlights to modular furniture lights.
