  • Light + Building 2012

    The World’s Largest Trade Fair for Lighting and Building Services Technology

    Light + Building 2012

    April 15-20, 2012, Frankfurt, Germany.

    OMS joined the ranks of world-class exhibitors at Light+Building 2012 where it presented its latest products and innovations.

    For the fourth consecutive year, OMS joined the prestigious event that focuses on new trends in lighting technology, electrical engineering, architecture and technical equipment for buildings. “We competed with the best in the field of illumination and have since grown to become one of them. For this reason, we could not miss being part of this event in Frankfurt,” said Vladimír Levársky, CEO of OMS.

    OMS introduced several innovative LED luminaires at Light+Building this year. Attendees also had the opportunity to preview a special OMS truck, which will tour Europe this Spring and Autumn for OMS’ European Lighting Tour 2012.

    A significant part of exhibition was dedicated to OMS’ proprietary new Lighting Quality Standard (LQS). “We are using more than 20 objectively quantifiable criteria to evaluate each and every lighting product or solution for a given space,” explained Mr. Martin Bílek, co-author of LQS and head of the lighting division in OMS’ research and development department. LQS’ goal is to standardize the evaluation of lighting solutions in order to facilitate proper lighting selection for customers.

  • Design Plus 2012

    Light+Building Fair’s International Design Competition

    Design Plus 2012

    April 15-20, 2012, Frankfurt, Germany. OMS showcases innovative design concepts during the Design Plus Awards.

    IMG

    The ceremony brings together highly qualified professionals in the fields of lighting, electrical and electronic engineering as well as home and building automation. The winning products will be awarded a prize and named “Best of” in their categories. The awards will be held at the exhibition area in Hall 1.1 on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 4pm.

    OMS has submitted the following products for consideration in the competition:  

    Track Comet

    Track Comet is one of OMS’ upcoming products. Functionality, reliability, design simplicity, and respect for the environment are the stand-out features of this luminaire. The body of the lamp; two massive aluminium blocks, serves to transmit heat and visually communicate the luminaire’s long product life. Efficient light output and lighting efficacy are obtained through the use of LED. In comparison with discharge luminaires, Track Comet’s biggest advantage is its reduced energy consumption.

    Its silent and noiseless operation is obtained through the use of passive cooling. Track Comet’s low heat production and energy efficiency are typical features of this luminaire. Easy to mount to any kind of track system, Track Comet features two levels of adjustment: 0°-90° or 0°-360°. A LED with CRI>80 combined with an effective reflector provides light output of 98 lm/W. Colour rendering can provide colour temperatures of 3,000K or 4,000K. Track Comet comes with two types of reflectors that produce beam angles of 24° or 40°. It fits into spot lighting in shops or galleries and can also be used in product display areas to highlight merchandise.

    Track Air breaks down the barriers to mass market adoption of LED lighting solutions. We designed Track Air to take full advantage of the benefits of LED, making it a safe, long-lasting, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly lighting solution. The luminaire′s housing is formed from black sheet steel. The dimmable electronic control gear, DALI, is available on request. Track Air’s global track system supports various types of connections and suspension equipment to be set up on one track. It can be suspended or ceiling surfaced. Compared to halide luminaires with an output of only 35 or 70 lm/W, Track Air’s LED with CRI>80 combined with an efficient reflector provides an impressive light output of 98 lm/W. Colour rendering can provide colour temperature of 3,000K or 4,000K.

    A LED with CRI>93 is available on request. Track Air comes with two types of reflectors that produce beam angles of 24° or 40°. An active membrane is used to transfer the LED’s heat which reduces the weight of the luminaire. It is perfectly suited for use in galleries, exhibitions and retail applications as the luminaire can be positioned precisely where required.

  • OMS’ commitment to product quality

    Consistently meeting the most stringent European safety and performance standards

    OMS’ commitment to product quality

    OMS has always prided itself on the quality of its products. Now starting our third decade of luminaire development and manufacture, we believe that a good product not only provides the best technical parameters and latest technologies but also ensures the safety of every user and building.

     

    One of the key ways in which we strive to meet the highest standards is by attaining the respected ENEC mark for our core products. The ENEC (European Norms Electrical Certification) Scheme covers thermal, mechanical, and electrical safety requirements across all electrical product sectors. The highest quality independent testing is carried out by one of more than 20 signatories, all of whom are distinguished laboratories or certification bodies and members of the EEPCA (European Electrical Products Certification Association). Achievement of ENEC certification means that a product both meets strict European electrical safety standards and provides a required operational performance in accordance with European legislation.

     

    OMS became a member of the ENEC Scheme back in 2000 and has been working to meet and surpass standards ever since. Anton Kozubik, Head of Product Management and Marketing, commented, “Our use of the ENEC mark assures customers of the technical performance and safety of our products, which reinforces trust in our brand and the quality it represents on the market.” We currently have our products certified in three independent laboratories: EZÚ Prague, Czech Republic (ENEC 21), TÜV Hungary (ENEC 18), and EVPÚ Nová Dubnica, Slovakia (ENEC 27).

     

    To mark ENEC 20th Anniversary in 2012, Execom (the European Certification System (ECS) Executive Committee) asked the then 25 signatories to nominate several companies each for recognition. The criteria included such areas as innovation and product quality. Of 125 nominated companies, only 35 were awarded the coveted ENEC Anniversary Award. OMS is proud to say that it was one of those 35.

  • Designblok 2011

    V dňoch od 4. - 9.októbra 2011 sa naša spoločnosť zúčastnila medzinárodnej prehliadky Designblok 2011 v Prahe.

    Designblok 2011

    OMS predstavila najvyššiu triedu osvetlenia ELITE OMS.

    Výstava prebiehala vo vybraných showroomoch, predajniach a galériách na území celej Prahy, naša expozícia sa nachádzala v Superštúdiu Futurama v Prahe – Karlíne.

    Okrem novej značky Elite OMS sa v sekcii svietidlo predstavili hlavne silné dizajnové značky, ako Deltalight, Artemide, Flos, Light Years, Brokis, Luceplan, Lasvit, Foscarini, Preciosa, Lucis, Ateh ale aj výrobcovia technických svietidiel ako Anolis, Lux Lighting, mnoho mladých dizajnérov a študentov.  Cieľom našej prezentácie bolo potvrdiť a ukázať verejnosti dlhodobú firemnú stratégiu OMS spoločnosti v oblasti vývoja nových produktov s dôrazom na dizajn. Naša inštalácia jednoznačne zaujala – či už laikov mladých dizajnérov, ale aj novinárov a  viacerých známych dizajnérov. Jej autor Petr Mikošek Boa pri návrhu designu vychádzal z Elite farieb.  Pozitívne hodnotenie verejnosti sa odzrkadlilo aj vo finálnej nominácii na cenu „Nejlepší kolekce svítidel“. Medzi 3 najlepších sme sa dostali spolu s Brokis a Preciosa pred vyššie spomenuté značky. Ocenenou sa nakoniec stala jednoduchá a vtipná inštalácia Brokis, tvoriacu ilúziu vznášajúcich sa balónov. Naša nominácia ukázala, že víťazstvo v Národnej Cene za Dizajn NCD 2011 nebolo náhodné a práca našich interných, ale aj externých dizajnérov je skutočne kvalitná. Z kolekcie produktov vizuálne najviac zaujali Startrack (Atelier Pelcl),  Rebell (Ján Štofko, OMS ) z víťaznej kolekcie NCD 2011  ako aj Acrux (Anton Zetocha, OMS)  a Terzo (Giugiaro Architettura, Taliansko) z kolekcie nových produktov. Pozornosti neušli ani minimalistické modely DW Castra, Modul Box Max a vstavaný Becrux. Kto našiel odvahu „pohrať sa“ s dotykovým displejom, bol prekvapený funkcionalitou Modulu EYE.

     

    Našu účasť na Designbloku môžeme aj na základe vyššie uvedených faktov hodnotiť pozitívne. Dokázali sme presvedčiť o našich kvalitách, ukázať, že za dobrým návrhom svietidla je veľa práce viacerých odborníkov, osloviť viacerých potenciálnych nových zákazníkov, mladých, ale aj profesionálnych dizajnérov, vydobyť si miesto v nominácii na najkrajšiu kolekciu svietidiel a ukázať, že kvalitný priemyselný dizajn si vie nájsť rovnocenné miesto aj vedľa šperku, či módneho návrhu.
