As LEDs continue to gain ground in both commercial and residential applications, Progress Lighting is expanding its LED downlight series with new finishes for 2010.
LED lighting is gaining popularity as an alternative to incandescent and other traditional light sources because of its energy efficiency, warm white color consistency and long lifetime. It last more than 25 times longer than incandescents and five times longer than compact fluorescent light (CFL).
Also, LEDs don’t contain mercury and they don’t emit UV rays, which can fade fabrics and other materials.
The following finishes are currently available on a made-to-order basis with a standard two- to three-week lead time:
- 20, a painted antique bronze finish that matches wood ceilings
- 36, a painted chestnut finish matching wood ceilings
- 31, painted matte black finish
- 121, painted metallic silver finish for use in commercial applications
Coupled with the inherent low-glare and high-output performance of the P8071 6” and P8026 4” LED downlights, these finishes provide customers with more options from which to choose for a variety of settings.
The P8071 6” LED downlights are designed to be direct replacements for incandescent 65W BR30s but operate at only 12 watts of input power.
The P8026 is the 4” version of the P8071 and includes many of the same features. The downlight’s light output and distribution is superior to R20 incandescents and rival PAR20 halogens.
LED fixtures can be ideal for general and functional illumination of shared interior spaces in residential and light commercial applications, including: lobbies, corridors, home offices, office kitchens, waiting rooms for dentist and doctor offices, theatres, child development centers and apartments and multifamily housing.
