Soraa adds UK distributor

UK full-service energy-efficiency specialist SaveMoneyCutCarbon.com has announced a new partnership as Master Distributor for Soraa Inc of Fremont, CA, USA and its GaN-on-GaN (gallium nitride on gallium nitride) technology, which provides an alternative to halogen MR16 lamps.

Soraa’s LED lamps are suitable for high-end retail, jewellers, art galleries, museums and the hospitality industry. For spotlighting over products, the firm’s 95-CRI (colour render index) GaN-on-GaN technology is said to show a true representation of colors with crisp shadows and detail.

Soraa’s LED lamps use GaN epitaxial layers on a native GaN substrate, rather than the standard GaN on sapphire or silicon carbide (SiC) substrates. GaN-on-GaN LEDs are claimed to produce more light per area of LED and are more cost-effective than technology based on other, non-native substrates.

Soraa’s full-visible-spectrum light delivers colour rendering that is reckoned to surpass halogen sources. The firm’s LED lamps are also claimed to run cooler and have no IR or UV radiation, reducing heat and emissions that can compromise sensitive materials.

“With an expanding range, we will be providing a portfolio of larger form factors essential for retail, hospitality and residential applications,” says SaveMoneyCutCarbon.com’s managing director Mark Sait.

“In the much-needed drive for energy-efficiency, we lost sight of a fundamental point: colour is just as important as light,” notes Nick Farraway, Soraa’s senior VP – International. “Only Soraa creates GaN-on-GaN lighting products for tomorrow’s general illumination market,” he adds. “All Soraa lamps feature 3-phosphor LEDs with violet pump that enable benefits such as point-source optics for beautiful, uniform beams of high-intensity Violet 3-Phosphor (VP3) Natural White and VP3 Full-spectrum Vivid Colour.”
