Sea Gull Lighting Booth at IBS: North Hall #1639
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (January 22, 2012)—Sea Gull Lighting, one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of decorative and functional lighting for residential, commercial and architectural applications, today unveiled more than 250 new decorative products—spanning 12 new collections—during the International Builders’ Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Sea Gull Lighting’s booth at the show is in the North Hall, #1639.
“We’ve invested a great deal in the company and the brand during the last year,” said new Sea Gull Lighting President Matt Vollmer. “Part of the investment has been a comprehensive and effective overhaul in our product development process by integrating the latest technologies and expanding our product development and design teams. We have a larger pool of top-notch engineers headed by a new vice president of engineering—which is a newly created position—and we’ve hired a 20-year lighting veteran as our director of product development and design. All these investments are manifesting themselves in our new-for-2013 products.”
Sea Gull Lighting’s Continued Commitment to ENERGY STAR Program
Also according to Vollmer, Sea Gull Lighting recertified even more lighting fixtures, fans and lamps in 2012 to meet new, more stringent requirements to bring its total ENERGY STAR qualified products to 582. “We continue to be one of the leading ENERGY STAR manufacturers in the lighting industry to give our building partners the best lighting efficiencies for their customers,” he said.

Sea Gull Lighting’s aviation-inspired, new 18-piece Brockton Collection features airy, sweeping lines, making this line’s fixtures fitting of any transitional interior space. Its two finishes—Brushed Nickel or Burnt Sienna—allow a tailored look from warm and cozy to sleek and modern.

Sea Gull Lighting Expands Shade Pendant Category
Among Sea Gull Lighting’s new-for-2013 shade pendants, the versatile Dayna fixture offers the perfect solution for tailored décor ranging from casual to formal. The six-piece collection is offered in three sizes, from a two-light, 14” diameter and 11.75” high semi-flush mount to a four-light, 36” long by 16.5 wide by 14” high trapezoid-shaped dining chandelier.

The Brayden three-light pendant is an elegantly simple fabric drum shade which is highlighted by a fun design element with an industrial flair: At the luminaire’s crown, three thick metal rods hook to the center structure, adding an unexpected twist to this classic silhouette. An acrylic diffuser, held in place with a metal finial, finishes off the look. With a beige, linen look shade and Burnt Sienna finish, Brayden’s dimensions are 19” in diameter and 20” high, and it’s offered in either medium based incandescent or ENERGY STAR GU24 fluorescent lamping.

International Builders’ Show attendees will also see two new Ambiance® products recently added to the brand’s portfolio with the Ambiance Lx LED tape and the Ambiance LED disk lights.
The LED tape provides versatile, long lasting LED linear lighting at an affordable price point. It has 12 integrated LEDs per foot. It mounts neatly above, in and under cabinets, shelves, steps, handrails and more to create discrete, high quality illumination. With its advanced LED technology, Ambiance Lx LED tape lasts 50,000 hours, is dimmable and improves visibility and brightness over traditional light sources. The tape is available in 2700 or 3000K at 85 CRI and provides an energy savings of up to 90 percent versus halogen or xenon lamps.
Engineered with the heat sink integrated into the housing, the new Ambiance LED disk lights have a sleek, low profile to subtly provide light under and around a variety of surfaces. With three, high-performance LED chip sets per unit, they impart homogenous light with a smooth, shadow-free beam and deliver the look, feel and performance of a xenon or incandescent lamp. Reducing energy and operating costs up to 80 percent versus an incandescent or xenon lamp, the disks also have a superior tested life of 40,000 hours—which is 20 times longer than halogen.
