Industrial activity and marketed products
Luznor's main activity focuses on the design, manufacture and marketing of the three product lines mentioned above, with the clear objective of differentiating the products by being innovative, with a high technological content and maximum energy efficiency, and having associated services that add value to them.
To this end, Luznor covers all the phases of an industrial design project, from the detection of a market need and the study of the applicable regulatory and legal requirements to the development of a customised solution and its demonstration in a real application, officially validated by means of the relevant tests and approvals.
These are electronic devices that come in operation when the normal lighting supply voltage fails, providing light for a period of time thanks to the energy stored in their batteries.

These electronic devices can come in different formats depending on their size and application, distinguishing between architecturally oriented designs (see Image 4) such as emergency luminaires or beacon lights and designs for a more industrial environment (see Image 5) such as emergency floodlights and fittings, emergency converter kits or luminaires for cold stores or other demanding conditions.
The emergency light installation is regulated by the Low Voltage Electrotechnical Regulations (R.D. 842/2002), specifically by its ITC-BT-28 Installations in places of public concurrence, as its use to indicate the evacuation routes of any building of public concurrence is compulsory at national level.
Some of the best known buildings with Luznor products installed are the Marqués de Riscal Winery, the Basque Culinary Center, the W Barcelona Hotel and the El Prat Airport.

Without going any further, Luznor's emergency luminaires and beacon lights are visible to everyone in emblematic places in Vitoria-Gasteiz such as the Santa María Cathedral Foundation, the Main Theatre, the European Conference Center or the Villasuso Palace. They are also present in health centres such as the HUA or the Olaguibel Ambulatory, in educational and leisure premises such as the Civic Centres, BAKH or the Deportivo Alavés Soccer Stadium and in a multitude of shops and restaurants such as the Boulevard, the Zaldiaran restaurant, the Toloño Bar and the Mamut Bar, etc.
On a larger scale, the facilities of the Mondragon University and the Orona Ideo, McDonald's establishments or The Spanish Radio and Television Corporation, for example, also use Luznor products, as well as Michelin, Siemens Gamesa, Iberdrola and Endesa, for large projects such as the Aldeadávila Dam.
Luznor's professional torches (see Image 6) are considered capital goods and have won a large number of public tenders because of their exceptional mechanical and lighting performance.
This is because they have an electronic circuit with a programmable microprocessor whose function is to offer customised operating modes according to the customer's needs, light signals according to the required codes, front and rear lights in different colours, automatic switch-on, etc.

Among its most representative applications are the use in railways (to give train departure signals, indicate track works, etc.), traffic control, whether on land, sea or air (police, forest rangers, customs, etc.) and use in explosive atmospheres (industries such as paper, flour, paint, textiles, pharmaceuticals, agricultural and livestock facilities, chemical products, etc.).
Some of our clients include the Ertzaintza, the Local Police and Fire Department of Vitoria-Gasteiz, Euskotren and the metro or tramways of major cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels or Lisbon, railway constructors and administrators like CAF, Talgo, Renfe, Adif, Trenitalia or Alstom and other large companies related to transportation such as AENA.
CONTINUOUS POWER SUPPLY EQUIPMENT
This equipment basically consists of a cabinet with the electronics and batteries necessary to ensure the continuity of operation of, for example, the operating room lamps, in case of power failure, for a limited period of time (see Image 7).
They are used in the Gregorio Marañón, Infanta Elena or La Paz hospitals in Madrid, in the Son Espases hospital (Mallorca) or in the Miguel Servet Hospital (Zaragoza), as well as in various national hydroelectric power plants.
