GE’s Lumination™ LED DownLights Now Offered in More Versatile and Designer-Friendly Options with New Reflector and Wall Wash Options
EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (Aug. 12, 2014)—GE’s Lumination™ LED DownLights are now available with new reflector finishes and anodized color options, offering even greater versatility and customization of the energy-efficient Lumination DI Series for new construction of high-end retail, commercial office and hospitality spaces.
In addition to new configurations and finishes, GE’s Infusion™ technology gives users more options, including a variety of lumen output and color temperatures, to illuminate key products or focal points with the simple switch of an LED module.
“GE’s Lumination DI Series LED DownLights come in a wider range of finishes and colors—from wheat, semi-diffused and white colors to specular, clear and even black—giving designers and architects more versatile options than ever before,” said GE Indoor LED Product Manager John Koster. “Adding in the Infusion technology, which provides outstanding efficacy and color rendering—including high R9 values across all color temperatures—this truly is the ideal downlight solution for retail spaces and other areas where the color, richness and detail of merchandise and key interest areas can pop.”
Additionally, the Lumination DI Series is available in a wall washer option, which helps highlight walls, artwork and architectural features, allowing the lighting to make a room appear brighter, bigger and livelier. With wide, even illuminance, the DI Series wall wash optimizes uniformity horizontally on the wall while delivering light all the way up to the ceiling line.
With lumen package options from 1,000 to 4,000 lumens, the Lumination DI Series is an energy-efficient alternative to a range of traditional downlights, from 13-watt CFL to 100-watt metal halides. It also gives more future-friendly versatility than typical LED downlights, ensuring the lowest total cost of ownership. The GE Lumination LED DownLight modules can be effortlessly upgraded in seconds through the Infusion twist-fit design that doesn’t require a fixture change.
A product of GE ecomagination℠, the LED modules of GE Lighting’s Lumination LED DownLights come in a variety of lumen outputs and color temperatures. With up to 90 CRI color rendering and high R9 values, colors appear more vibrant—ideal for retail, hospitality and other environments where lighting quality is essential, especially for spaces with 10- to 20-foot ceilings.
Additionally, the Lumination DI Series has a 50,000-hour rated lifetime, providing considerable maintenance savings compared to the 20,000-hour rated life for many CFL downlights. It is available in 4- and 6-inch round and square shapes that allow users to choose the perfect light for each application.
