Tech Lighting, a leader in sophisticated, modern design combined with the latest advancements in lighting technology, has won two “Honorable Mention” Awards in the Directional Category from the 2015 Lighting for Tomorrow competition.

Announced during the American Lighting Association (ALA) Annual Conference in Huntington Beach, California on October 3, Tech Lighting won for its ELEMENT® Merge™ Recessed Linear System and ELEMENT® Build-Your Own Multiples.

The ELEMENT Merge Recessed Linear System by Tech Lighting is a marriage of a recessed linear LED system with a low-voltage track lighting system. Two styles of spot heads—Gimbal or Drop-Down—for accent and task lighting can be added directly into the channel at any point along the concealed, patent-pending low-voltage track system—and they’re available in multiple CRI, color temperature and beam spread options, each producing 830 delivered lumens while consuming just 9 watts.

Static white (2700K, 3000K or 3500K), Programmable White (2700K-4000K) or RGB channels of uniform LED light can be designed to make same-plane 90° turns or perpendicular transitions from ceiling to wall for enhanced design interest.

In addition to the Merge Gimbal and Drop-Down spots, more than 80 low-voltage Tech Lighting pendants and heads are compatible with the Merge Recessed Linear System for added design flexibility.

The uniquely modular ELEMENT LED Build-Your-Own Multiples by Tech Lighting place ultimate flexibility in the hands of lighting designers by utilizing a highly configurable and expandable grid frame system. From simple shapes to complicated “X” arrays, Build-Your-Own Multiples LED spot modules are placed into the recessed grid structure to create the desired lighting configuration and effect. Metal plaster plates and frame blanks allow the entire system to be mudded in for a completely seamless appearance.

Below the ceiling, optional flangeless trims are available in White, Black or Satin Nickel—and square or round apertures. The trimless (open) option has an uncommonly attractive, sleek look below the ceiling without the use of additional trims. Both trimmed and open housings are available in White or Black.

The ELEMENT Build-Your-Own Multiples have tool-free 35° tilt and 360° rotation spot aiming and locking systems which maintain full center beam candle power at all tilt angles.

Because the spot modules can be configured in tight patterns, they’re capable of generating very high levels of illumination for a small, focused area—such as corners—while being ideal for tall ceiling installations requiring high light capacity. Each LED spot module is available in multiple color temperatures, CRI and beam spreads and delivers 1050 lumens while consuming just 12.5 watts.
