Diassi, Chairman and Founder of Amerlux.  “These products have passed the most stringent tests for the latest industry standards.”

Contour Vertical Track Heads, a recipient of the Next Generation Luminaires Solid State Lighting award at a Strategies in Light Conference, have received the latest ENERGY STAR® for its 2x2, 2x3, 3x3, 3x4 and 4x4 LED styles.  Contour Vertical LED Track Heads offer color temperatures of 2900 to 3200 CCT (correlated color temperature) with more than 50,000 hours of life, and boast a high CRI (color rendering index) with excellent R9 for reds. The Contour Vertical 2X2 12-watt LED and the 2x3 18-watt LED Track Heads are compact accent track fixtures ideal for a direct replacement of low wattage MR16 and halogen systems. The Contour Vertical 3×3 LED Track Head offers an output of 1000 net lumens and an 85 CRI at only 20 Watts while the Contour Vertical 3×4 LED Track Head provides 1300 net lumens and an 85 CRI at only 34 watts. Contour 4×4 represents the most powerful LED track accent on the market and is ideal for punching through high ambient light levels as well as applications where mounting heights exceed 10 feet. High performance optics and excellent thermal design deliver superior performance. All Contour Vertical LED Track Heads offer beam distributions from an 8-degree spot through 45-degree Wide Flood.  Contained in an extruded aluminum ballast housing and heat sink, the track fixtures feature stamped aluminum end-plate construction with formed steel wire covers, for track, busway and canopy mounting options.

Compact 12-watt LED heads in a recessed housing make Contour LED Multiples the ideal choice when track isn’t an option. With a range of beam spreads in configurations of 1, 2, 3 or 4 heads per housing, the 12-watt optics can be used as a direct replacement for low wattage MR16 and other halogen systems.  Contour LED Multiples are available in: a 2x2 3-Light Multiple which serves as a direct replacement for MR16 and other low voltage halogen systems; a 3x3 3-Light Multiple that delivers lumens equivalent to many 20-watt metal halide systems; a 3x2 3-Light Multiple featuring 18-watt LED heads that can be used as direct replacements for low wattage MR16 and other halogen systems; and a 3x4 One-Light Multiple configuration which produces the equivalent to many 39-watt metal halide and high wattage halogen systems.

Both groups of Multiples include One-, Two- and Three-Light configurations featuring either 16-watt LEDs or 26-watt LEDs. Ideal for a complete, dynamic sustainable lighting scheme, the fixtures are designed for a clean architectural appearance and ceiling line for a sleek, sophisticated visual aesthetic. The multiples feature deeply recessed field-replaceable LED light sources for enhanced visual comfort and control, as well as an integrated heat sink with active cooling, a control board that shuts off the active cooling when dimmed to maximize energy savings, and high performance interchangeable reflector optics (15°/25°/40° beam options.  Perfect for retrofits and upgrades from-below installation in existing ceilings up to 1-1/2” thick in any retail or commercial environment, the Multiples are compact in size and engineered for today’s stringent energy codes. Trimless models, crafted with a flangeless housing with seamless welded corners for a minimal edge detail and a cleaner aesthetic, are available.
