"One of the best thought-out high-bays seen to date." - PIA Judge
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) April 21, 2011
Fixtures from Lusio Solid-State Lighting, a worldwide brand and division of LightWild, have been named the top high bay products in the solid-state lighting market as designated by the Platinum Award in Architectural SSL magazine’s annual Product Innovation Awards, the company announced today. The winners, named in the April issue, were released earlier this week and will be presented their awards during the LightFair International trade show in May in Philadelphia.
“The awards were a first step to sort through the myriad of SSL and LED product that’s hit the market in the past couple of years,” said Jim Crockett, editorial director of Architectural SSL magazine. “Through a comprehensive questionnaire, and with the help of our expert judges, we’re confident the products honored will give specifiers of SSL a great starting point in investigating robust and energy-efficient products that they’ll hopefully be able to use on their projects.”
Architectural SSL magazine is focused on the development, application, specification and design-merit of LEDs and solid-state lighting throughout the built environment. The magazine took into consideration several key data points about the platinum award winning Lusio SSL high bay fixtures including the color rendering index (CRI), correlated color temperature (CCT), luminous efficacy, L70 lifetime expectancy, UL Certification, and the 7-year warranty. One judge’s comments considered Lusio “one of the best thought-out high-bays seen to date.”
“The Lusio product line is a completely original and unique SSL fixture design that does not mimic the previous fluorescent or HID forms,” said Tom Stafford, President and CEO of LightWild and Lusio Solid-State Lighting. “We are pleased the judges recognized these innovations with the platinum award and that they see the future in high bay lighting as positively evolving from what has been seen in the past.”
The platinum award-winning high bay fixtures are part of the Lusio Solid-State Lighting family that includes 80 models and five light distributions tailored to commercial and industrial facilities that utilize high bay, low bay, and aisle lighting fixtures.
