Minneapolis — March 11, 2015 — Engineered Products Co. (EPCO), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors, announced that its new energy-efficient, exceptionally reliable LED Linear Luminaire for parking garages provides unparalleled performance, improved efficacy, and more usable lumens per watt.
This solid-state luminaire consumes less than half the wattage of a 4-foot luminaire, using two 32-watt T8 fluorescent lamps, and has a minimum life expectancy of 50,000 hours.
The complete, installation-ready parking garage luminaire features two rows of LEDs and reflectors that magnify lumen output intensity to distribute the light outward as an “enhanced” controlled beam. It includes a “frosted” polycarbonate diffuser to mitigate any glare to the finished floor and provides a color-rendering index of 82 and above. The luminaire complies with the requirements of the Design Lights Consortium (DLC).
EPCO President Jack Schuster said, “To meet the growing demand for energy-efficient lighting in parking garages, our solid-state lighting solution provides improved thermal dissipation for optimizing light output. Since parking garages and parking canopies have an unobstructed headroom clearance of no less than 7 feet above the finished floor to any ceiling, beam or pipe height, our LED Luminaire is specially designed for even light distribution and no-glare illumination.”
Ready for immediate installation in new construction and renovation projects, EPCO’s solid-state LED Luminaires are ETL listed and meet UL 1598 Standards. To view step-by-step installation instructions, click here.
