Legrand Acquires Solarfective Products Limited

August 14, 2016

Legrand expands its shading portfolio to commercial markets with the acquisition of Solarfective, which will become part of Legrand, North America’s Building Control Systems business.

Daylighting is now part of evolving energy codes, requiring coordination of passive sources with artificial lighting. The integration of Solarfective’s shading systems with Legrand’s active lighting control will enable Legrand to coordinate these various lighting systems, providing designers, specifiers, architects, and facility managers with a broad, strategic range of energy efficient, commercial lighting solutions. Shown in photo: a Solarfective installation in the University of Manitoboa’s SmartPark RTDS/TGS Building.

Shades are a key subsystem of high-performance buildings, as they help to manage both the thermal load and passive light. Through the addition of Solarfective’s products and expertise, Legrand customers will have access to advanced shading and lighting control solutions that meet the requirements of codes and high-performance buildings. Moreover, Solarfective’s custom engineered solutions offer customers savings on cost and reduced installation time.

The combination of Solarfective’s commercial offerings with Legrand’s most recent acquisition of Qmotion Advanced Shading Systems for residential markets will further position Legrand as a single source provider, offering customers access to the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of shading solutions for virtually any application.

“High-performance buildings and energy codes are continually evolving,” saYS John Selldorff, President and Chief Executive Officer, Legrand, North America. “This acquisition is about providing our customers better, more integrated solutions for passive and active lighting control to meet the evolving demands of today’s buildings. The solutions Solarfective and Qmotion have brought to Legrand will enable us to be a more strategic partner for all of our commercial and residential customers.”
