Solus scoop supreme award for innovation at the Hardware Show
Irish company Solus is the guiding light into the future with the new
XCross™ Filament LED bulb
The Innovation Awards are a highlight of the Hardware Show at the RDS Dublin on March 5th and 6th. Irish Company Solus were awarded Best Home Product for their XCross™ Filament LED technology presented at the President’s ball in the Clayton Hotel, Dublin. They then went on to scoop the prestigious overall supreme award which was presented by Bobby Kerr at the end of the night placing them overall ‘Best in Show’ at the Hardware Show.
The Innovation Awards were judged by a Dragon’s Den style panel of industry experts chaired by Bobby Kerr. Awards were given for Commended, Highly Commended and Winner in each category of Home, Garden, Build and DIY and then an overall winner was also chosen from the winners of the categories. This prestigious award was presented to Solus for their innovative new XCross™ Filament LED Bulbs.
The traditional 60 watt light bulb that lit our homes in the past has been re-invented by Irish lighting company Solus with new XCrossTM Filament technology. Extensive research revealed that customers never fully embraced new product offerings since the old incandescent light bulbs were replaced by new energy efficient alternatives in 2008. The huge 80% energy savings were most welcome but that natural, warm, instant light of the old incandescent bulb was missed. Solus next generation LED bulb with XCrossTM filament design creates a compact 360 degree light source that looks and lights just like an incandescent bulb. It works just how you would expect it: instant light, using up to 87% less energy, with a natural, warm light and up to 15,000 hours lifespan.
Solus bulbs are built to cover all the requirements of the International Standard ISO 9001, they are active participants in the Energy Savings Trust and are members of WEEE Ireland and Repack. Solus has successfully managed the conversion from old incandescent bulbs to halogen, and now to new LED’s by introducing a new customer friendly wattage guide in-store and on each pack. Solus have also invested heavily into their packaging with an easy to understand chart, helpful clear explanations and examples of lighting conditions. The New Solus Retail Experience Display Stands take the customer experience to a whole new level. These high-level display solutions allow customers to press a button to ‘try me’ and see exactly what the light bulbs look like when lit in various surroundings
