What We Do

DARKON is a heavily Research & Development resourced entity, delivering customised solutions for diverse project requirements with short lead times. The product design process is driven by a ‘universal design’ philosophy which accommodates the ability to interchange mounting applications across product families and facilitate backwards integration of generational upgrades in electrical technology. Ownership of a goniophotometer additionally accommodates industry demand for current ‘absolute photometry’ .ies data files. Quality BIM & REVIT family content generation is also evidence of our commitment to the Architecture & Design community.
