Award-Winning GE Evolve™ LED Contemporary Domed Area Light Provides Long Life, Energy Efficiency, and Exceptional Optics

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — (NYSE: GE) — The classic look of yesterday meets the energy efficiency and quality of light of today in the GE Evolve™ LED contemporary domed area light from GE Lighting Solutions. A recognized winner in the Next Generation Luminaries™ Design competition, the new LED fixture offers energy efficiency and a long 50,000-hour rated life at 85 percent of initial lumens with an output of 4,900 lumens at 90 watts. Features such as a high color temperature (5600K or 4100K), a 70+ color-rendering index and a low-glare optical design enable low light trespass in residential roadways, walkways, historic urban settings, shopping centers, malls, plazas and parks. 

“A lot has changed in outdoor lighting in the past 100 years, but LED technology is poised to truly change the industry,” says Owen Shipler, senior marketing manager, GE Appliances and Lighting. “Our fixtures are built on GE's decades of experience with LEDs and designed specifically as LED fixtures. Landscape architect and lighting designer customers examining this new fixture will appreciate the wide range of photometric options and designs that we're offering.”

The GE Evolve LED contemporary domed area light features:
  • A die-cast aluminum housing with cast heat sinks to transfer heat away from the electrical components, adding to its long LED life;
  • A complete inside-outside coating of polyester paint for superior corrosion resistance;
  • An impact-resistant lens;
  • Excellent cold-weather performance; and
  • RoHS compliance since it's a mercury-free lighting solution.
The thermal design rigor of all Evolve LED systems enhances its life span, reliability and system efficacy. LED durability can lead to reduced maintenance costs with no filament failures, no cathode failures and no glass to break, as well as vibration resistance. The LED photometric control contributes to color consistency with greater optical control to provide light only where desired. The improved fixture efficiency means fewer fixtures, lower watts and improved control of spill light to reduce light pollution and trespass.

GE Lighting Solutions consists of GE Lighting's light-emitting diode systems operation based in Cleveland and its commercial and industrial lighting fixture group in Hendersonville, North Carolina. The units were combined earlier this year to support a strategy to serve as an industry-leading solutions provider for the rapidly growing indoor and outdoor fixture segments that use LED systems and other energy-efficient lighting technologies.
