The originally installed LLL system (Existalite and Glamox) onboard several cruise liners has become obsolete and needs to become replaced, as spares for aforementioned systems are no longer available on the global market.
In order to replace the old systems cost effectively and in the shortest time possible, R&M / Happich have developed a retrofit solution which is now being utilised by many fo the major Cruise Line operators.
Installing the R&M Lumen/HAPPICH LLL retrofit system negates the requirement to rip out the aluminum carrier profiles in use for the exisiting systems saving considerable time and cost including the carpet replacement. Our retrofit cover strip can be utilised on most installed profiles.
R&M Lumen/HAPPICH have designed new components especially for exchanging the electronic components of the system only, based on a 2 wire configuration with so called LED islands, this is the newest version available on the market and fully certified by the DNV/GL.
The system fulfills all requirements and has been designed for an overall homogenous appearance. It is being installed on many new builds at the time being.
