Thus, in highlight, there were luminaries like the CT-AVT 228PBT/254PBT and the CT-THE 254PBT, with high level of airtightness and waterproofing (IP 65/65), upper side access and high quality lighting. It produces less visual strain, thus providing a better work environment and increased productivity. The luminaries were installed in big and small surgery rooms and in the dining room.
