ViaLuce, un éclairage pour la planète / a green outdoor lighting.

We are specialists in solar road and road lighting: we have developed a range of luminaires for roads and bicycle paths, the first installation of which will be finalized in October 2017.

 

Order your solar lights for your garden at -30% and you will help to accomplish the first solar lighting for a bike path. Thus, children will be able to go to school!

 

The concept was born of a request from the municipality of Brunehaut (south of Tournai in Belgium near France) in 2008 to illuminate a path which will be the main route for cycling trips. Since there have received an  subsidy to reduce Co2 emissions and there was no lighting, so the solution was lighting without external energy consumption with solar panels and presence detection.

One of the challenges was to reconcile the aesthetics and functionality, to obtain a stylish device while ensuring a comfortable, safe and efficient lighting.

HISTORY

February 2012:

The concept was presented at the  Fair in Marche-en-Famenne (Belgium) where it met an enthusiastic reception. We therefore decided to continue developing the product.

To continue the study and not having the financial and technological resources of a large company, we have structured the project according to a principle of interdisciplinarity resulting from the fusion of several experienced and complementary skills (engineer, electronics, designer, contractors etc.) inspired by the concept of participatory and respectful economy of the planet.

• Icoms sprl in Louvain la Neuve • Metals Embossed in Herstal • Sapa Aluminum in Raeren • Atima machining in Vervier • Entranam to Namur • Clem in Kortrijk • Mecanic System in Braine l'Alleud • D * Novo design in Paliseul

 

Proto2-1502965677

October 2015:

The product evolves into a 20 cm triangular base luminaire comprising three solar panels integrated into the mast, three LED lighting sources, a waterproof electronic unit with two radars and batteries.

November 2015:

Presentation of the first prototypes at the Big Five show in Dubai, where there was also a very positive reception: a total of 175 sales contacts and price quotes for several thousands of potential lighting.

November 2016:

A second series of prototypes, this time with the final mast in aluminum extrusion, is on display at the Alu Messe in Düsseldorf and won the Audience Award from the European Aluminum Award.

December 2016:

Following the 2016 edition of the Big Five in Dubai, where Vialuce was once again present, trade relations with the Middle East are strengthening. The requests are more precise and we are solicited to study an alternative to the Chinese products omnipresent there but which do not satisfy both the quality and the poor aesthetics.

Proto5-1502967829

January 2017:

We take down our first three orders in Belgium:

• 28 solar lights for 2 km of cycle paths in the commune of Brunehaut (near Tournai in Belgium) which will be completed in September 2017.

• 5 solar lights for private land in Namur (Belgium) at the beginning of October 2017.

• 45 anti-intrusion lights for the cemeteries of Charleroi (Belgium), the first third of which will be finalized by the end of 2017.

 

At this stage of development, our TPE has already invested more than 80 000 EUR in extrusion chains, tools, photometric studies etc. We still lack EUR 22,000 to pay the subcontractors and deliver the first two orders. This will allow us to finalize and launch the production of new luminaires for a wider audience such as ViaDwarf.    

 

Thanks to the ViaDwarf, you can illuminate your garden with a photovoltaic, ecological and aesthetic luminaire without damaging your lawn. It is easy to install without trenching and wiring. The range is already described on the vialuce.be website.

 

With your pre-orders, the first solar cycle track lighting project will be completed. And so, we will develop this concept of ecological illumination for outdoor spaces, designed, manufactured, assembled in Belgium.

By pre-ordering ViaLuce luminaires via this crounfunding, you will pay them 30% cheaper than the public price. Once the first two sites are finished, we will have enough financing to launch the ViaDwarf range, which will be ready for spring 2018.

Allocation of funds

We are using KissKiss BankBank to finalize the first project and launch the ViaDwarf range on the market and give others the opportunity to benefit from this light, develop the participatory economy and redeploy industry and employment In our regions.

 

Thanks to this collection, communities will be able to promote cycling journeys with solar lighting and give the opportunity to illuminate gardens in an ecological, aesthetic, intelligent way and without damaging the existing plantations.

 

For this first project, more than 80 000 EUR has been paid for subcontractors:

The EUR 22 000 will be use for :

Purchase of 82 solar panels: 4 800 €

Purchase of aluminum for reflectors (from Germany): 124 €

Order of 100 pieces policarbonate for the optical block in Belgium: 2,400 €

Paying metallic work in Belgium: € 4,400

Paying work parts manufacture metallic pieces and painting in Belgium: 4,500 €

LED circuits in Italy: 254 €

Purchase of 34 batteries at 50 EUR: 1700 €

TOTAL 1: 18,178

Other expenses + 10%: 19,996 + 8% (5% for Kkbb, 3% bank charges) Total: € 21,595
