Our Process

Atex consists of individuals with distinct specialisations, working in harmony with a common purpose.

We encourage our clients to work with our team from the design stage; furthering our knowledge and understanding of the project and allowing our engineers to contribute towards ideas and solutions drawn from their considerable experience.

Design & Specification

Design is behind everything we do, whether it’s architectural schematics or our own lighting design blueprints. Our technical department has considerable experience in lighting, emergency lighting and lighting controls design and will produce schemes to your requirements, using Dialux or Relux software, in either 2D or 3D as appropriate.


Product training is an essential element of any installation, from the point of view of efficiency, economy and safety. We provide training on all systems, customised to your specific development or building. We are fully equipped to host training sessions in our showrooms in Dublin.
