New PopPack: A World of Difference

Thorn’s all-new PopPack, the 16th generation of the world’s best-selling light fitting, is poised to change how contractors view fluorescent lighting.

Over 80 million PopPacks have now been sold

Suddenly, instead of the standard batten fitting which has been unchanged for decades, there is a luminaire with a quicker installation sequence, easier electrical connection, rapid authentic emergency conversion and straightforward presence and daylight detection. All in addition to T5 or T8 lamps and a wider range of attachments for commercial and industrial requirements.

Traditionally, contractors use a cumbersome mechanical fixing method that involves holding a fluorescent spine in one hand whilst trying to fasten it with the other. Thorn has devised a considerably faster two-stage method. First, two circular mounting studs (supplied) are fixed to the ceiling, or BESA box. Then the spine pushes into place with captive "twist to lock" yellow snap ratchets sliding onto the studs. Two other refinements with new PopPack – the flat spine maximises potential finger access for electrical connection and a rear channel effortlessly routes cable to the mains entry point. No wonder contractors are able to install nine new fittings in the same time it used to take to fit four.

An ingenious LED 3 hour non-maintained emergency module plugs directly into the end of any new PopPack, thus eliminating the need for separate emergency versions. The ‘plug and play’ theme continues with a presence detector and daylight sensor module.

Finally, a compact version that takes a 55W TC-L lamp will be introduced later this summer. Only 610mm long it produces a similar light output to a 1500mm fitting with 58W T8 lamp.
