Another few months have passed and it’s time for another update…
It is proving to be a very busy year with much activity and investment in the cleanroom industry throughout Europe, this together with the ever improving LED technology and a string of new product launches has given us plenty to talk about.
The summer has now arrived and due to popular demand we have decided to extend our ‘Summer Sizzler’ BBQ offer until the end of August, a small ‘thank-you’ in appreciation for your continued business and an encouragement to go outside and enjoy the unpredictably hot weather we have been having.
Many thanks to all who responded to the first edition of our newsletter, your feedback is always very much appreciated.

NEW Seminar - 'Specified For Performance'
We have spent some time recently designing a new CPD program in preparation for the busy next few months of LED lighting seminars. The designs were completed to coincide with the release of this newsletter so we could take the time to introduce the premise of, ‘Specified for Performance’.
IP65 Low Profile Surface Mounted LED Luminaire
We are proud to unveil a new luminaire to Astra’s range of innovative products. Aptly named, the SENATOR leads the way for LED cleanroom luminaires of its kind, by integrating new, advanced and unmatched features in its design. Our combination of world class LEDs, high light transmission diffusers and enhanced optical reflectors have resulted in a luminaire with exceptional performance, providing substantial energy savings and a safer working environment.
Due to high demand, the LED Safestep is now available from stock.
Always striving to better the quality and efficiency of our products for our customers, we have developed and improved the performance of one of our most popular LED luminaires, the SAFESTEP.
The SAFESTEP luminaire is specifically designed for use in cleanrooms and clean areas such as in the pharmaceutical, food, micro-electronic and healthcare industries. Aptly named, the SAFESTEP luminaires’ unique design integrates seamlessly into composite panel ceilings and provides walk-on protection, thus safe guarding personnel working above the ceiling.
LFL GOES LED!
The Astra LFL teardrop luminaire has been recently revamped to include all the many benefits of the new LED technology, improving not only the efficiency of the luminaire but also the performance and lifespan.
The LFL is also now featuring a new and improved control gear and high light transmission diffuser, making for a seamlessly engineered and totally reliable surface mounted luminaire.
Sanofi Pasteur, France
Having successfully completed numerous projects for Sanofi in the past and with our vast experience of exporting large orders throughout Europe, Astra was the first point of call when they decided to build a new research and development facility in France.
Thornton & Ross – Huddersfield, UK
We recently supplied the complete ceiling packages for two new build cleanrooms and a switch room in Huddersfield for Thornton and Ross.
Providing not only the lighting but also the filtration and ceiling grids for this project we had to make sure that every element integrated seamlessly together and that we made the right product recommendations to the client.
ASPAR Pharmaceutical St. Albans, Hertfordshire
Astra was selected to provide specialist cleanroom lighting to the new ASPAR pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.
Working closely with the cleanroom providers, Astra delivered over 600 LED luminaires from our range to this prestigious project.
