New GE Lumination™ LED Luminaires Stop Boring Ceilings Before They Start

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio – May 10, 2012 – (NYSE:GE) – Designers can dress bland commercial ceiling space in chic new style with Lumination™ Luminaires and other bright indoor LED ideas from GE Lighting Solutions. A Lumination slim suspended fixture and 1’x4’ recessed troffer are now available to exquisitely attire office, retail or hospitality settings.
 
The Lumination Suspended fixture delivers remarkable light output in an ultra-thin, provocative design. Honored today as a recognized winner in the Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) 2012 Indoor Competition, linear pendant lighting category, the Suspended Luminaire is an entirely new aesthetic that combines direct and indirect lighting in one highly efficient, translucent LED luminaire. A clear, narrow band surrounds the edge of the fixture, making the light source appear to ‘float’ through the air. GE Lighting Solutions will offer the new Suspended fixture beginning this summer.

These chic, slim fixtures as thin as the width of a finger emit a crisp, pleasing light and instantly enhance the look of any room. When illuminated, they produce an even glow, delivering exceptionally uniform light to fill the space. While off, they appear free of a light source - a differentiator compared to most fluorescent fixtures that are typically visible. The ultra-thin panels (0.5 inches) fit seamlessly in most common T-bar ceiling grids and feature a built-in dimmable LED driver to help make installation less complex and time consuming compared to traditional fixtures.
 
Lumination LED Recessed Troffers also consume considerably less energy than fluorescent tubes, providing cost savings of up to 26 percent depending upon the lamp type. They are immediately available in a 2’x2’ format with 1’x4’ fixtures coming later this year.
