September 27, 2011

SEAMLIGHT by SunopticsThanks to Sunoptics, maker of high-performance prismatic daylighting, you can directly instal daylighting onto existing industrial standing-seam roofing systems with the new SEAMLIGHT Curbless Daylighting System. It delivers optimal lighting performance but its installation process doesn’t interfere with the structural integrity of industrial low-slope standing seam metal roofing systems.

Pair it with one of Acuity Brands’ indoor intelligent control systems, including Sensor Switch, Synergy Lighting Controls or Lighting and Control Design, and you get the extreme in energy savings.

Sunoptics high-performance prismatic skylights optimize indoor daylighting performance with a patented dome construction designed to capture more light at low sun angles. This maximizes the amount of light transmittance while maintaining 100% diffusion and eliminating undesirable hot spots, glare and UV damage.

September 14, 2011

9/11 MemorialSome 1,500 feet of Winline 607 LED Submersible luminaires by Winona Lighting are part of the National September 11 Memorial at New York’s Ground-Zero site.

In addition, Winline 203W Surface Linear Wet luminaires provide illumination to the Names Parapet, a low wall projecting from the edge surrounding the pools where the names of the nearly 3,000 victims are memorialized.

The memorial, part of a permanent tribute called “Reflecting Absence,” was dedicated at a ceremony held on September 11, 2011, commemorating the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Read more about the project here.

Healthcare Lighting Expands Surgical Suite Lighting Portfolio

September 1, 2011

In high-performance areas of hospitals, the amount of energy used by lighting systems is, generally speaking and for obvious reasons, exempt from scrutiny. But that doesn’t mean energy consumption can’t, in fact, be reduced without sacrificing lighting quality or the ease of maintaining the lighting.

Introduced by Acuity Brands, the Surg5 surgical troffer luminaire from Healthcare Lighting accomplishes that balancing act. The newest addition to the Healthcare Lighting OR/Surgical Suite product line, the Surg5 luminaire, a surgical-suite supplemental fixture, is designed to deliver the equivalent light output of a 6-lamp fluorescent troffer while requiring only 5 lamps. It also provides in-place accessibility of the ballast for faster and more cost-effective maintenance.
