Oceanfront step lights can be made turtle friendly at a fraction of the cost of a new fixture

“The turtle friendly upgrades provide a simple and cost effective upgrade for owners of oceanfront properties,” said Matthew Sallee, Director of Strategic Marketing for Sielo.

Sielo is announcing the introduction of turtle friendly LED upgrades for retrofit of existing step light and decorative light fixtures. The turtle friendly upgrades are available in three lengths, 4”, 6”, and 8”.

These fixtures are typically found in hotel pool and patio spaces, oceanfront walkways, coastal multifamily, and higher education facilities.

“The turtle friendly upgrades provide a simple and cost effective upgrade for owners of oceanfront properties,” said Matthew Sallee, Director of Strategic Marketing for Sielo. “Even cast-in-place step lights can be upgraded without a major engineering project - protecting hatchling turtles at a fraction of the cost of installing a new fixture.”

The turtle friendly upgrades facilitate sea-finding behavior in hatching turtles, and feature an Osram DURIS® P5 amber LED, at 590 nanometer wavelength. The turtle friendly LED upgrades install in minutes inside existing fixtures, eliminating the need for ongoing lamp and ballast replacements. Patented thermal foldback technology, allows maximum light output in any ambient temperature while assuring long-term reliability.

All three sizes of the turtle friendly LED retrofit meet UL 1598C safety requirements for field installation, as well as Florida State Wildlife Lighting Certification, IP65, and comply with requirements for the Buy American Act. The turtle friendly LED upgrades feature a five (5) year warranty, even when installed in outdoor rated and completely sealed step light fixtures.
