The conceptual aim behind the Dorika series is the representation of proportionality and slenderness, reflecting the parameters of classical art. The symbolism of its lines and modular adaptability characterize the identity of this avant-garde unit.
ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
The union of the column’s vertical grooves and the horizontal lines on the luminaire holder provides visual lightness to the whole, emphasizing the harmony between both elements. Thanks to classically inspired symbolism and the timelessness of the design line, the Dorika series can be integrated into historical and modern spaces alike.
The Dorika series design lines have remained unchanged since it first appeared. However, its lighting technology has evolved to incorporate the latest generation of LED optical engines developed by SETGA, according to the highest standards of colour rendering, efficacy and lifetime.
MATERIALS AND STRUCTURE
The Dorika luminaire body is characterized by a structure of AISI304 or AISI316 Stainless Steel to prevent the degrading action of highly aggressive environments, such as coastal areas. Inside the luminaire is an extruded, anodized aluminium 6063-T6 chassis, which acts as a thermal sink.
The luminaire is integrated into the Dorika extruded, anodized aluminium, squared section column (8.6 m, standard height), and is adaptable to the requirements of each project.
An innovative anchoring system provides flexibility to vary luminaire height at any time.
The Dorika luminaire incorporates one of the world’s most recycled materials—steel. Reintroducing steel to the production cycle of other industries at end of useable life will produce significant energy savings compared with other metals. Unlike aluminium injection, for example, extruded aluminium used for manufacturing the chassis sink facilitates reuse in other product categories.
Following the implementation of ISO 14001 and the development of the sustainability master plan, SETGA has striven to reduce the carbon footprint of all its components, by designing a long-term recycling system for each one.
The Dórika luminaire is based on the principle of direct thermal dissipation between the LED PCB and the compact aluminium chassis. The dissipation body comprises a continuous heat pipe of anodized aluminium 6063-T6, which achieves thermal conductivity levels of 200 W/metre Kelvin, compared to 130 W/metre Kelvin of aluminium injection. The low porosity of anodized aluminium plus a thermal pad over the contact surface between the PCB and the dissipation body significantly reduce the diode’s junction temperature.
According to the US Energy Agency, relief on the upper surface of the fixture severely hinders the dissipation process that takes place by convection, becoming a critical element for performance and life.
To overcome this challenge and to enhance the natural self-cleaning process, SETGA has equipped the Dórika luminaire with a completely uniform upper surface, thus preventing dirt accumulation, and the ensuing obstruction and inefficiency of the thermal dissipation system.
Here are the basic dimensions of the Dorika series:
