First launched at the 2022 HEA Annual Conference, Aeromax, developed in partnership with Green Frog Systems, is a standalone, solar-powered luminaire and energy storage system capable of powering not just lighting but also Smart City devices, including sensors and CCTV.
The Build Back Better initiative, launched in 2021, champions innovation, creativity, environmental leadership and social purpose. The awards are judged by sector-specific experts, including seasoned practitioners, specifiers, academics, scientists, and industry end-users. The diverse panel rigorously assessed Aeromax based on its innovation, unique attributes, and transformative potential within the sector.
When asked about this prestigious recognition, Acrospire’s Technical Director, Neil Purdue, expressed his excitement: “We are thrilled to receive the Build Back Better Green Award for Aeromax. A GREEN rating is reserved for products designed and manufactured with a strong focus on environmental responsibility, underscoring our dedication to UK tried and tested sustainable solar lighting. A lighting designer’s dream, we believe in creating products that not only meet the needs of our clients (market-leading autonomy and photometric flexibility) but also contribute to a greener future.”
Bat Friendly: Setting a new benchmark for environmental sensitivity, Aeromax goes above and beyond its competitors by offering a bat-friendly LED option. By emitting wavelengths that peak at 590nm or 690nm and avoiding disruptive blue light (470nm), it minimises interference with bat habitats and preserves their natural behaviours.
As our customers continue to face environmental challenges, including meeting net zero targets, environmentally friendly solar lighting not only aligns with the principles of the circular economy but also serves as a benchmark for others in the industry to follow.

The idea for Acrospire was formed in 2012 when founder Tim envisioned a different kind of lighting manufacturer: one that would not only deliver outstanding customer experiences but also prioritise fair treatment for its employees.
We’ve come a long way
Motivated by the belief the industry wanted and needed better, Tim shared his plan to establish his own venture with Hatty, who simply couldn't let him do it alone.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Protecting local jobs and ensuring the best quality possible.
Working from a rented office by day and assembling lanterns in a garage at night, Tim and Hatty set to work.
11 Years later
Acrospire now inhabits a 14000² ft manufacturing facility in Basingstoke, Hampshire. We’re a proud partner of the Made in Britain scheme, ISO9001 certified and a member of all relevant lighting industry trade bodies.
Along with great relationships with our customers and a great team! We've attracted some of the most experienced members of the lighting industry, all by following one golden rule.
A simple ethos
That runs through all that we do. Customers who have made the switch to Acrospire have found working with us to be a breath of fresh air.
If you’re a professional in the lighting industry, you’re probably familiar with warranties that range from 3 to 10 years, with extensions available on special request or at additional cost. At Acrospire, where we’re proud to be different, we offer a market-leading simple 12-year warranty, as standard.
We focus on our customers not our competition. We manufacture our products in the UK: with the exception of our solar products, our supply chain is within a 60-mile radius of our factory in Basingstoke: to maintain greater control over quality. We al

Test and Test Again
We believe in independent testing and certification. Our new product development is in line with ISO 9001. Many of our products hold ENEC Certification. To meet the requirements of ENEC we also send random product samples for third party safety testi
Our product design is another key factor in our ability to offer a 12-year warranty. We value engineer rather than cost cut, never compromising on quality. We stick to our processes and engage with our supply chain to ensure that every product meets
