What is a vandal-resistant luminaire?
A lighting installation subjected to vandalism or outdoor influences can have many consequences:
— Lack of security for people and property due to the interruption in lighting,
— Additional financial cost of additional maintenance and replacing capital assets,
— An environmental impact associated with the reduced life cycle for the products.
Since 1986, Securlite has been developing vandal-resistant luminaires and long-life lighting solutions in order to reduce the cost of maintenance in public spaces and buildings.
Because a luminaire is an investment, not a consumable.
The vandal-resistance of Securlite products is based on:
— Resistance to deliberate or accidental impacts,
— Resistance to ripping out (anti ligature),
— Secure closure (special screws).
As an option, Securlite luminaires can also offer increased flame-resistance, and resistance to graffiti, UV (tropical countries), and corrosion in a marine environment.
— Steel, aluminium, and stainless steel,
— Polycarbonate and Duroflam®.
The special tools, in the form of driver bits or special spanners, must be ordered separately.
Bit-holder drivers and additional tools can also be ordered at current prices. Special fastenings can be designed on request.

Vandal resistance classifications
VK® vandal resistance index.
The VK® index allows better characterization of anti-vandal luminaires: it includes mechanical strength beyond IK10, as well as the other characteristics involved in vandal resistance.
IK index for resistance to mechanical impacts
(NF EN 62262 standard)
Protection against penetration by solid objects and contact with live parts.
Protection against liquid penetration.
