The Narva range of AeroTech LED strobes/rotators, was recognised for outstanding design and innovation by winning an Australian International Good Design Award, the country’s highest honour for design and innovation.
Taking out the Product Design category, the AeroTech LED range was evaluated by more than 70 Australian and international jurors. Each entry was evaluated according to a strict set of design evaluation criteria, which included good design, design innovation and design impact.
Designed and engineered in Australia, the range was developed with Australian conditions and applications in mind. According to Narva, the range combines superior lighting performance, eye-catching looks and rugged construction.
To achieve its impressive light output, the AeroTech range combines high-power LEDs, precision reflectors and optics. Also helping visibility is the lamps’ unique ‘trilobular’ shape, characterised by a greater front surface and tapering from the front to the back of the lamps. Narva said this also improves aerodynamics (by 60 per cent compared to traditional round strobes), resulting in reduced in-cabin wind noise. The AeroTech range is also backed by a seven-year warranty.
“The judges were impressed by the culmination of several improvements to the typical round strobe warning light, the awards jury said. “Wider illumination surfaces, reduced drag at higher vehicle speeds and its ability to increase or decrease strobe output during bright daylight or night use, all added to the fresh look of this trilobular strobe. We anticipate the Aero Tech strobe to strongly compete within the market. Congratulations.”
Brown & Watson International (owner of Narva) Group General Manager – Product, Ryan Elsegood, said the company was delighted to have won the Good Design Award.
“This is high level recognition of Narva and Brown and Watson International’s strong dedication to product development, innovation and improvement,” Elsegood said.
“We continually push ourselves to be at the forefront of technology and design within the markets in which we operate – it’s a culture that we strongly encourage and reward, and the fruits of the hard work have been realised in the form of this Good Design Award for the AeroTech LED range.
“I commend our product engineering and design teams for the contribution and efforts they made in developing the AeroTech product line. As a company it’s a range we can be very proud of,” he said.
