Acuity Brands has joined the effort to renovate New York City’s Jacob Javits Convention Center using its Holophane® brand of highbay luminaires. It’s part of a three-year renovation project to, among other things, re-light the main convention center space and create the largest “green” roof in the northeastern United States. The project started this summer and will phase through 2013.
The main thrust of the lighting portion of the renovation consists of replacing the existing highbay luminaires with solution-driven Holophane Prismpack® High Bay luminaires. The Javits Center’s goals include enhanced quality of illumination, energy savings, reduction in overall maintenance costs, and improved aesthetics. A unique component of the lighting used for this project is a partially perforated cover on the Prismpack luminaire to provide a very controlled amount of uplight and a differentiated aesthetic appearance.
Available with new ISD SuperGlass™ reflectors that provide unparalleled performance and uniformity, Holophane Prismpack luminaires are the perfect fixtures for a variety of high bay applications including industrial, commercial and educational facilities. The covered reflectors provide minimal uplight and are also especially suited for dirty or industrial environments.
