The Faze Laboratory

Quality tested in our labs to better visualise your project.

The team at Faze are passionate about lighting, from its emotional effects to its technical capabilities. The Faze Light Laboratory is home to a VISO Base Spion Gniometer, providing all products with comprehensive LDT and IES simulation files. Combined with the VISO Light Inspector software, we’re able to measure the full 3D distribution field of any lamp or fixture. 

The attention to detail in our photometric laboratory ensures quality is measured throughout the research and development stage, giving you peace of mind with any new product release.

Lighting tested to globally-renowned Australian standards.

All Faze products can be supplied with test reports to help you make an informed decision on the suitability of fittings for your project. We test to Australian standards as well as incorporating necessary requirements as per ACMA/ERAC, including but not limited to: ISTMT, LM80, TM21, LM79, EMC and certificate of suitability. The UGR table and the lifetime of the fittings are also fully available upon request.

Faze lighting is designed with architects, and builders in mind.

Through collaboration with architects, designers and builders we have a better understanding of what the market desires by way of unique and innovative luminaires.

IES files are available to include in lighting plans or use with software such as Dialux. The Dialux 3D rendering functionality is perfect for designing, calculating and visualising light at a professional level. Using data from our Base Spion Goniometer, our lighting consultants can show you the exact light emission and how that alters certain rooms, offering a 3D version of your plan, right before your eyes.

With the ability to create LDT and IES files, you can rest assured you have all the information to understand the products you have selected. Our in-house capabilities reduce lead times on requested files, for you to provide to your clients sooner.

Faze lighting experts answer your questions:

What are LED lights and what are their advantages?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode; a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. LEDs use approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting (hello power bill savings!) and also have a much longer lifespan, roughly 25,000 – 50,000 hours depending on the ‘globe’. LED’s are also eco-friendly, they don’t contain any harmful mercury, they don’t emit any CO2 and they can be recycled without harming the environment.

What is the difference between 3000k and 4000k?

Kelvin (K) is a measurement of light colour and is not a measurement of brightness, 3000k is a warm white, whereas 4000k is a cool white. The higher the number of Kelvin, the cooler the light. Think of the ember warmth of candles or firelight (which is 1000k-2000k), compared to the blueish tint of daylight, which is around 5000k. The colour temperature will impact a number of factors, including the ambience of a space.

What is a good colour temperature for my home?

Our lighting consultants lean toward a 3000k as it is not too warm/yellow toned and will therefore provide a clean white finish that is also still soft. However this can differ as some people may prefer a cooler white to others. For example, homes that feature a monochromatic palette of whites and blacks will suit a 4000k better – to bring out the whites and not create a yellow wash.

What are 'lumens'?

Lumens are a measurement of the total amount of visible light from a light source, this is the term used in place of wattage on the old scale. Typically, closer to 100-lumen per watt is very efficient – a standard downlight at 10.5W should be closer to 900lumen – this means it is performing at a higher level with less power.

What is CRI?

CRI stands for Colour Rendering Index, which measures the ability of a light to accurately reproduce the colour of various objects. The closer to 100, the higher the quality of the light source.
