Narva AeroTec LED range wins prestigious Good Design Award

The Narva range of high performing AeroTech® LED strobes/rotators, was this month recognised for its outstanding design and innovation, as part of the coveted Australian International Good Design Awards.

Narva AeroTech® LED range wins prestigious Good Design Award

The Good Design Awards are the highest honour for design and innovation in the country and celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian and international market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design.

Taking out the ‘Product Design’ category in recognition of outstanding design and innovation, the AeroTech® LED range was evaluated by more than 70 Australian and international jurors, including designers, engineers, architects and thought leaders. 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 demanding Australian conditions and applications in mind, and 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 – 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 7-year warranty.

Good Design Awards Jury Comments

“The judges were impressed by the culmination of several improvements to the typical round strobe warning light. 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.”

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Australian Good Design Awards, added his own comments:

“We know that good design, when used effectively, can improve our quality of life and make the world around us better, safer, more efficient and more beautiful,” he said

“It is clear from this year’s winning projects that investment in professional design delivers real impact – be it at a commercial, environmental or societal level. As our world transitions to a less-carbon intensive future, a design-led approach to solving problems and delivering meaningful impact is going to become more critical.”

In commenting on the accolade, Brown & Watson International (owner of Narva) Group General Manager – Product, Ryan Elsegood, said the company was delighted to have won this Good Design Award.

“This is high level recognition of Narva and Brown and Watson International’s strong dedication to product development, innovation and improvement,” Mr 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.
