Degré K is a leading player in international standard-setting bodies where we participate in the development of new standards necessary for the supervision of new technologies. Thus, our founder was appointed International Expert for the field of ISO dental operating lamps – islands SC6 / WG1 and delegated by AFNOR to the annual ISO international meetings for medicine

Our obsession: comfort and safety

As of November 2010, Degré K clearly positioned itself at the forefront of research and development around the issue of the toxicity of blue LEDs. The warning from the National Health Security Agency (ANSES) of May 2019, confirms the precepts that we have been applying for 10 years in order to ensure the visual safety and the psychological comfort of practitioners who trust our products. For the inseparable and necessary lighting in dentistry, Degré K now offers the choice between different ranges of “Blue Control” LED luminaires using different but secure technologies.

State-of-the-art “Blue Control” products

  • “D65 certified” complex LED range: perfection, with a spectrum identical to that of natural daylight, de facto completely managing the toxicity of HEV blue and the phenomenon of photopolymerization.
  • Neutral white LED range: closely simulating natural daylight with a continuous spectrum reducing the blue tip by 30%.

The developments of its products use the most advanced technologies and are always focused on improving comfort and safety during care.
Eco-responsible
, the company also strives to reduce the environmental impact of its products as much as possible and succeeds in offering ever more efficient products that consume less energy and materials to be recycled.
