Patents & utility models for lighting technology

Halemeier is one of the most innovative companies in the lighting category. This is illustrated by the fact that the Melle-based company currently holds 10 patents, 4 of which are European, 4 German and 2 in China. There are also 17 German and 2 Chinese utility models and 17 European community designs, supplemented by 7 German designs.

Halemeier patents

In June 2011, the company received a patent for a wall edging with an integrated light source. The next patent followed less than a year later, in April 2012, and another in 2013. It practically went on like this, beat by beat. In 2015, 2 inventions were patented, followed in 2016 by a patent for a recessed light. In 2017, a control system and controller for lights, including a packaging system, was patented. This list is by no means complete.

Halemeier GmbH also submitted numerous innovations as utility models in the light category. The difference between utility models and patents lies in patent law issues. The protection of a patent is longer-term and more extensive than that of a utility model. On the other hand, registering a utility model is easier and much faster.

Halemeier Design

The company from near Osnabrück is particularly active in this area. In 2016, for example, 35 design patents were registered, a year later 8 design patents, in 2017 also 3 design patents on the subject of light (LED luminaires) and in 2019 there were 10 design patents. The highlight was the year 2020, in which Halemeier registered 37 design patents. In 2021 there were 6 designs and in the current year 2022 so far also one design patent in relation to light (luminaires).

The term utility model, also called design, comes from patent law. Design patents are a type of protection relating to the external appearance (shape, color or form). A registered design gives the owner exclusive rights to the design features of the product in question.
