Acuity Brands Enhances Popular Lithonia Lighting TWH and TWP Luminaires with LED Technology

February 5, 2013

TWH and TWP LED outdoor wall-mounted luminaires deliver more than 100,000 hours of maintenance-free operation.

LR-TWP-LED-WallpackAcuity Brands now offers its popular Lithonia Lighting TWH and TWP outdoor wall-mounted luminaires with LED technology.

TWH and TWP LED luminaires are identical in size to their traditional counterparts and offer a familiar, classic appearance while delivering ultra-reliable, energy-efficient LED illumination. With an expected service life of more than 20 years, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires are virtually maintenance free and eliminate up to 12 metal halide lamp replacements. Designed to replace up to a 400W metal halide luminaire, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires offer up to 77 percent in energy savings and are capable of producing up to 6,700 lumens.

“The TWH and TWP LED luminaires are an excellent option when replacing existing traditional wall packs,” said Andrew Nowak, Lithonia Lighting Value Stream Manager, Building Mount Luminaires. “With a larger footprint than other wall packs, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires are able to conceal weathered wall stains and blemishes left by existing luminaires, while also making it possible for a seamless and gradual upgrade to an LED source.”

The TWH and TWP LED luminaires are available in 10, 20 and 30 LED configurations. Unlike some similar competing LED luminaires, which offer only bare LEDs behind a glass or polycarbonate outer lens, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires use individual LED primary optics that focus light on the outer lens of the luminaire and allow a larger percentage of the light to be delivered to the target area.

Available with a choice of two lenses, the TWH LED luminaire features a die-cast front housing and glass lens, while the TWP LED luminaire features a vandal-resistant polycarbonate lens, which makes the TWP ideal for lower mounting heights.

Luxury Condos Achieve Energy Saving & Aesthetic Goals with LED Lamps from Acuity Brands

January 2, 2013

1100-Willshire-Lobby-Acculamp-InstallationLos Angeles-based 1100 Wilshire projects annual energy savings of $17,000 through the installation of more than 700 Acculamp LED lamps.

1100 Wilshire, a 38-story luxury condo high-rise in downtown Los Angeles, installed more than 700 Acculamp® ALSMR16 LED lamps from Acuity Brands to reduce energy and maintenance costs, while still achieving the same look and feel as the original incandescent lamps. Acculamp ALSMR16 LED lamps are ideal for indoor lighting applications where color, extended lamp life and efficacy are critical.

“The space looked the same, and I could not see the individual diodes from the LEDs, which was very significant,” said Gregg Evangelho, building manager at 1100 Wilshire for Action Property Management. “The LED lamps looked like a traditional source, but provided the energy savings we needed. Additionally, installation was incredibly easy, and we were thrilled to use our internal maintenance staff. It really was as simple as changing a light bulb.”

1100 Wilshire reduced wattage from 50-watts to 6-watts by installing the LED lamps. It anticipates approximately $17,000 in annual energy savings.

“The installation at 1100 Wilshire embodies the Acculamp promise of ‘look, performance, and confidence, and exceeded 1100 Wilshire’s criteria for the indoor lighting renovation,” said Seth Owen, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, LED Lamps and Track Lighting. “The LED lamps contributed to overall building efficiency, while providing a quick return on investment.”
