Silvair strengthens UK presence with Architectural FX as new distribution partner

Bracknell/Cracow, July 3, 2019 - Silvair, a pioneer in mesh lighting networks and a leading provider of qualified Bluetooth mesh solutions for lighting control, announces a partnership with Architectural FX, a company which specializes in integrating and selling premium brand products to the UK lighting specification market.


Soon, AFX’s offering will be enriched with the ready-to-go wireless lighting control solution based on the globally interoperable Bluetooth mesh standard. It will include both lighting fixtures with integrated Bluetooth mesh components, as well as the robust lighting control software from Silvair. The company’s award-winning commissioning tools radically simplify and accelerate the commissioning process, while allowing any lighting control parameters to be customized in accordance with lighting needs or energy code requirements.

The cooperation with Architectural FX marks another step in Silvair’s expansion within the European lighting market. AFX will be offering the wireless lighting control technology to UK lighting designers, architects and specifiers. As part of the partnership, Silvair will also support AFX’s customers, sharing its expertise and best practices with regard to implementation of wireless lighting control systems across different types of commercial spaces.

“Cost-effectiveness, high quality and sustainability - these are the values that both Silvair and Architectural FX believe in. We are delighted that our new partner will help expand and promote the Bluetooth mesh ecosystem in the UK market,” says Rafal Han, CEO of Silvair.

It is important to us that we partner with progressive product manufacturers offering and supporting market leading products to our clients and their projects. We look forward to working with Silvair” says Chris Skelley, Managing Director of Architectural FX.

Since its adoption in 2017, the Bluetooth mesh standard continues to gain momentum in professional lighting applications. Designed specifically to address the challenging requirements of wireless lighting control, it is the first low-power communication technology that solves the three pain points of today’s connected lighting systems: reliability, scalability and simplicity. It also democratizes lighting control, allowing manufacturers of all sizes and geographies to join a globally interoperable ecosystem of devices that work with each other out of the box.
