LONGMONT, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TerraLUX Inc., an industry leader that designs, patents, and manufactures LED-based lighting solutions for illumination applications, announced today that Lighting Design Lab has added its DLR7-H downlight to the Lighting Design Lab Qualified LED List, as well as the DOE Lighting Facts Program.
“The DLR7-H uses less energy and costs less to operate than CFLs in downlight installations and a retrofit installation is almost as simple as putting in a new CFL bulb.”
The TerraLUX DLR7-H eliminates the need to constantly be changing out overheated, burnt out CFL bulbs in horizontally mounted downlights. The DLR7-H is more efficient and offers a longer lifespan than CFLs in downlight installations. In many commercial buildings, downlights provide a significant amount of common area illumination, many running 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. The TerraLUX DLR7-H is UL certified for retrofit and over 60,000 hours of continuous use, retaining more than 70% of its original light output after close to 7 years of non-stop lighting.
“It is a great honor to have Lighting Design Labs, the leading organization lighting designers, architects, interior designers, engineers, contractors, and facility managers in the Northwest turn to for recommendations on quality lighting products, recognize another innovative TerraLUX product,” said Matthew Sallee of TerraLUX. “The DLR7-H uses less energy and costs less to operate than CFLs in downlight installations and a retrofit installation is almost as simple as putting in a new CFL bulb.”
For retrofit, the DLR7-H simply installs into existing can hardware, with no external ballasts or drivers required and no change to the look of the fixture. Compatible with most 6-10 inch recessed cans, the DLR7-H is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The DLR7-H provides 900 directional lumens at 4000K using only 16 watts of input power and retains 70 percent of its initial light output. The DLR7-H is available in four color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K) all with Color Rendering above 80 CRI.
