February 26, 2013

LR-OLWCM-57Acuity Brands expands the OLWCM ceiling light family from Lithonia Lighting to offer two styles and three lumen packages. The OLWCM ceiling mount luminaires are an ideal solution for outdoor lighting applications such as parking areas, garages, carports, loading docks and covered walkways as well as interior applications such as factories and warehouses.

OLWCM 36 luminaires are designed with a tight, type 5 light distribution, ideal for lighting smaller areas at higher foot candle levels. The OLWCM 46 and OLWCM 57 luminaires provide a wide light distribution for illuminating larger areas. The OLWCM ceiling lights utilize high-performance LEDs, which maintain 70 percent of light service at an expected 50,000 hours of service.

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.

Architectural appearance combined with sustainability and a high level of performance characterize new GranVille® II LED luminaires from Holophane. The fixtures offer the same timeless housing choices that made Holophane’s GranVille HID line popular and are offered with Classic or Premier prismatic borosilicate glass optics to facilitate use of new or installed pieces.

Multiple lumen packages are available and fixtures may be ordered with asymmetric or symmetric distributions. The luminaires are optimized to meet existing light standards.

“GranVille II LED luminaires represent the latest generation in the GranVille family, which has become the benchmark for decorative acorn-style lanterns,” said Ben Prichard, Holophane Senior Product Manager, Outdoor. “The period style fixtures are highly efficient and provide significantly greater lumens per watt. Depending on the application, they also use less energy than traditional lamp technologies.”

Like most LED sources, GranVille II LED luminaires offer long life with reduced maintenance. A dedicated thermal management system maximizes performance and reliability. The fixtures are also designed for easy access to the electronic driver to simplify maintenance.

GranVille II LED luminaires include cast aluminum housing available in multiple styles, including two utility series and four standard housings. The fixtures are offered with traditional GranVille trim options and mount to industry standard pole tenons and existing locations.

“New GranVille II LED luminaires provide present customers the cost effective option of retaining their pole, housing, glass globe, accessories and trim and simply replacing the light source and internal electronic components,” Prichard said. “The luminaires are suited to a range of environments, from parks and city streets to campuses, walkways and parking lots.”

GranVille II LED luminaires are OEM certified for retrofit of existing models. The new product family is pending regulatory listing and will be suitable for up to 40ºC ambient temperature, depending on the selected wattage and options.
