GE’s Albeo™ LED High Bay Lighting Fixture Wins 2013 Product Innovation Award

  • Albeo™ LED High Bay lighting recognized with third award in two years from Architectural SSL magazine

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio – March 20, 2013 – (NYSE:GE) – GE Lighting’s Albeo™ ABHX-Series LED High Bay Lighting fixture, a product of its recent acquisition of Albeo Technologies, has earned a 2013 Architectural SSL Magazine Product Innovation Award. The award recognizes cutting-edge LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures.

The ABHX-Series LED lighting fixture can replace a range of legacy lighting systems—400-watt to 1500-watt HID and four- to eight-lamp T5/T8 HIF high-bay lighting—in warehouses, storage areas and other commercial spaces with high ceilings. It can be equipped with wireless and motion controls, and it offers more lumens from fewer modules compared to the original award-winning H-Series, which was the first one-for-one LED replacement for up to 1500-watt metal-halide systems.

"Winning the Product Innovation Award from SSL validates our distinct way of approaching the high

bay market,” said Jeff Bisberg, CEO of Albeo Technologies, a GE Lighting business. “LED high

bay lighting has significant growth potential for industrial buildings and warehouses because of its tremendous light quality and cost savings. We are committed to offering the very best high

bay products that will save business owners in maintenance and energy costs while fulfilling their unique lighting needs."

The original H-Series was recognized by Architectural SSL in 2012 in the High Bay and Special Citations categories as the most innovative optical and control system.

Two dozen designers and lighting specialists comprised the judges panel, which recognized manufacturers for outstanding products with attributes, qualities, functionality and/or performance beyond industry standards.

Architectural SSL is published by Construction Business Media, which also produced Architectural Products, Illuminate, and Net Zero Buildings magazines.
