GE’s Lumination™ BT Series LED Lighting Fixture Cost Effectively Refreshes Commercial Ceilings
EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — August 1, 2013 — (NYSE:GE) — GE Lighting’s new point-of-entry Lumination™ BT Series LED Luminaires broaden the universe of office, retail and commercial building space that’s ready for a switch to high-quality, long-lasting LED-based general lighting. The Lumination BT Series lighting fixtures deliver uniform light distribution across the face of the luminaire, filling the entire T-grid ceiling frame with a pleasing, even light that reduces glare common in office and retail lighting.
“Many businesses desire the efficiency and aesthetic benefits of LED lighting technology but have been on the fence about an upgrade given its higher investment cost,” said Eric Stevenson, global product manager, GE Lighting. “GE’s new Lumination BT Series recessed troffer is an affordable, all-in-one lighting system that still boasts a modern, fashionable fixture design—helping today’s architects and lighting designers achieve their goals for maximum workplace productivity, energy efficiency and maintenance savings.”
GE’s Lumination BT Series Luminaires offer superior LED performance for illuminating mid- and modest-scale projects. The thin, 3 ½-inch recessed ceiling troffer is ideal for retrofits, easily fitting into existing drop ceilings and allowing designers to quickly switch out inefficient fluorescent lamps for more energy-efficient LED light sources.
With a 50,000-hour life rating, improved L70 lumen maintenance and the elimination of added labor costs from ballast installation, GE’s newest LED troffer also helps building owners significantly reduce maintenance costs.
The Lumination LED lighting fixtures’ high-quality color consistency makes them highly suited for office and retail environments.
