New TekDek Parking Luminaire Offerings Let You Put Correct Light Levels Where You Want Them

The expansion of the TekDek series enables them to choose the level of light that is appropriate for each zone of the space for additional energy savings

In 2012, Kenall Manufacturing introduced the award-winning TekDek™, the lighting industry’s first LED parking luminaire to offer glare control. Now, thanks to brisk sales of the original, Kenall has expanded the line to include two additional TekDek products: TekDek High Output (HO) and TekDek Base (B). These two luminaires expand the lumen range options from an economical 66 lm/W to the first to exceed 150 lm/W.

“TekDek has been one of our company’s most successful products, and just as specifiers search for new, aesthetically-pleasing LED lighting that can withstand rough use and harsh conditions, they are also looking for a broader range of delivered lumens. The expansion of the TekDek series enables them to choose the level of light that is appropriate for each zone of the space for additional energy savings,” said Jim Hawkins, President of Kenall Manufacturing. He continued, “For instance, you might want more light over a pay kiosk, and slightly less over the drive lanes. That’s the kind of scaling that makes this new TekDek family so versatile.”

TekDek’s three models are also highly adaptable, thanks to a range of mounting methods and distribution options, including a new Type II distribution. Most frequently found in parking garages due to their unique low-glare textured lens, they are also used in other challenging applications from cold storage to retail, as well as educational settings, correctional facilities and natatoriums.

The TekDek family of products now includes:

  •     TekDek High Output (TD17HO): 93-153 lm/W
  •     TekDek (TD17): 69-128 lm/W
  •     TekDek Base (TD17B): 58-106 lm/W

Kenall also recently introduced TekLink wired and wireless lighting controls, which work seamlessly with TekDek and offers options for a wide variety of applications. “Our designers are creating exciting new lighting solutions every day, and finding new ways to adapt existing systems to better serve challenging environments. I’m very excited to see what’s next,” concluded Hawkins.
