The LED products of Lumen Star, apart from the products existing on the Russian market today, do not contain mercury and will have the average time of service more than 50 thousand hours. Also, the company will be manufacturing the infrastructure constructions of the new generation, for example, the edge pavement for prevention of accidents.
