SAFESTEP MET (UL LISTED)
Look who's back!
I am pleased to rejoin the Astra team after slightly more than 5 years with another company.
The team has grown, the company has moved to a larger factory and the products have all moved across to LED technology. However the company values and design innovations have remained unchanged; cutting edge lighting technology, market-leading products and customer service, and a team that create a positive and vibrant atmosphere to work in.
I am buzzing to hit the ground running!
My primary focus will be on our export markets, plus involvement with some new UK accounts.
Feel free to contact me regarding any cleanroom projects you are working on, and you’ll see why Astra is first choice for so many in the cleanroom sector!

I look forward to working with you soon!
Narrow Spectrum LED Lighting
Astra is now implementing the applied science of narrow-spectrum (coloured) LED lighting to their already high-quality cleanroom luminaire range.
Rather than using coloured filters or colour mixing, we have pinpointed specific wavelengths in the colour spectrum to provide the ultimate application-specific LEDs for all your healthcare, scientific and manufacturing projects.
To learn more about the benefits of using coloured LEDs in these types of projects, and the various colours available, please click here.
Cleanroom Technology Conference 2017
In June of this year, Astra was approached by Guardtech Cleanrooms with an exciting collaborative opportunity for the 2017 Cleanroom Technology Conference. This new cleanroom event, based in Birmingham, aims to bring together industry experts and inform the cleanroom sector about all note-worthy developments in the design, regulations and standards of building clean and controlled environments.
Guardtech was the sole exhibitor to erect a cleanroom display over the course of the 2-day exhibition. The cleanroom was to serve as an interactive walk-way between the conference and exhibition spaces, and from hearing about the new EVOClean system, they reached out for Astra to support them in the design and execution of this event. Guardtech though it would be the perfect showcase to promote the innovative ceiling system alongside their high-end cleanroom builds.
The EVOClean is a non-walk-on suspended ceiling system designed specifically for cleanroom applications. The integrated LED lighting results in a completely flush finish for easy cleaning, with the absence of grooves and crevices preventing any build-up of dirt and risk of contamination.
Cambridge University, Capella – Cambridge, UK
Specialist clean area lighting package for new build research centre.
Astra were recently selected to provide a range of specialist cleanroom lighting to a new build 18,000m2 biomedical research building for the University of Cambridge.
ConvaTec – Flintshire, Wales
Safestep LED luminaires for new build pharmaceutical processing facility.
With extensive experience in manufacturing specialist lighting supplies for large pharmaceutical projects and with our impressive reputation for meeting stringent design and delivery deadlines, Astra was the first point of call when ConvaTec decided to expand their pharmaceutical processing facility in Flintshire, Wales.
Imperial College London – London, UK
Specialist narrow spectrum lighting for organic solar cell fabrication laboratory.
Astra have recently developed the LED technology in their fittings to include narrow spectrum (coloured) LEDs and white LEDs in the same luminaire. This allows the user to fully customise the colour of their lighting to suit the functionality of the room at the time of occupation.
This has quickly become a popular option for healthcare, semiconductor and nanotechnology research projects and was one of the many reasons why we were chosen to provide specialist lighting to Imperial College London and their organic solar cell fabrication laboratory.
