Tetra™ Contour LED Lighting System Promotes Colorful Creativity
VALLEY VIEW, Ohio — (NYSE: GE) — Feeling blue? Then how about green or cool white? With the addition of five new colors, retailers, restaurants, hotels, and commercial building owners have more reason than ever to replace high–voltage neon systems with a low–voltage, long-life Tetra™ Contour LED Lighting System.
Already available in red and red–orange, the Tetra Contour LED Lighting System expands its color palette – and offers more creative options for OEMs, lighting designers and specifiers – by adding amber, green, warm white, cool white and blue.
Tetra Contour LED Lighting Systems are made to resemble and replace exposed neon in a variety of signage, architectural and accent lighting applications, including border lighting, open-face channel letters, reverse-halo signs, accent lighting, art and light sculpture and cove lighting. It provides LED-versus-neon advantages common to GELcore products: the look of neon and light output comparable to neon, robustness, low-voltage operation, long life, unmatched cold-weather operation, and ease of installation and maintenance.
The Tetra Contour LED Lighting System is up to 40 percent more energy efficient than a typical exposed neon system. Cool to the touch, it also provides a bright, uniform appearance and a wide viewing angle.
The weather-resistant system is comprised of a rigid, optically diffuse extruded-plastic light guide that can be heated and formed in a shop or on the job site, and a flexible GELcore LED light engine that fits snugly inside the light guide. Installation of the two-part Tetra Contour LED Lighting System is fast and simple — installers can use standard neon mounting hardware and GELcore accessories (light-guide connector, end cap and light–engine splice connector) to create a neat, finished appearance.
