New Products

We recently introduced Aisle Lighter optics for our HB44 and HB45 LED Highbays. These high performance optics replace up to 1000w MH and provide superior lumen maintenance and vertical rack illumination. In one warehouse application, four of our 273-watt HB45 fixtures were used to replace seven 400-watt MH highbays, resulting in a 63% energy savings. The MH system had a 21.5 maintained foot-candle average, while the new LED system will produce a 33.7 maintained average.
HB45 and KH45 30-degree optics for our LED highbays and flood lights are coming soon. These luminaires will produce highly concentrated light distributions that provide increased foot-candle levels for specialty applications. The HB44 and HB45 highbays will be useful for very high ceiling applications such as aircraft hangars, aircraft manufacturing, and convention centers with mounting heights above 35 feet. The flood light series will provide accent lighting for flagpoles, tall building facades, and outdoor architectural lighting where fixtures must be mounted at distances of 30 feet or more from the lighted area.

Positive Impact of DuraLED & LEDicated

LEDicated is an LED dedicated luminaire that has been designed solely for LED light sources. The housing has integrated heat management and is engineered for IP67 sealing of the LEDs. All facets of the design process to develop DuraGuard LEDicated fixtures are devoted to creating an environment for optimal LED performance.
  • The housing is die cast aluminum 100% copper free A360 (LM6) alloy from ingot, with no recycled content
  • The housing serves as the LED heat sink and creates a sealed environment
  • Gaskets are robotically applied to the housing to create a consistent seal and assure that every fixture achieves stated IP67 rating
  • Fixture includes a separate sealed driver compartment with finned heat sink door
  • Hardware is nickel plated stainless steel to eliminate seizing over time
  • LED Array utilizes a high quality aluminum board uniquely designed for each fixture to provide optimal heat dissipation and light output
  • Circuit design on the array optimizes LED output with parallel circuits and 525mA drive current
  • Drivers are IP67 rated with variable voltage 120-277 input, 10% THD with 1-10V dimming standard
  • High quality glass or polycarbonate lenses provide sealing with maximum light output
