Lithonia Lighting Blends Today's LED Benefits with Avanté's Classic Design
Atlanta — March 3, 2015 — Acuity Brands, Inc. introduced the Avanté LED Direct/Indirect recessed luminaires from Lithonia Lighting, designed to deliver the market-preferred benefits of the classic Avanté luminaire while expanding the value of lighting for modern facilities by adding energy efficient LEDs and digital controls.
Since 1996, Avanté fluorescent luminaires have set the benchmark for direct/indirect recessed applications by combining elegant aesthetics with a visually comfortable, glare-free aperture - a perfect complement to commercial office spaces, conference rooms, common areas, educational facilities, airports, and medical facilities. Now, these classic values are translated and enhanced for modern spaces that demand greater energy savings and access to digital controls.
“Since Lithonia Lighting established the direct/indirect approach to lighting with Avanté 19 years ago, we have enjoyed strong demand for the product,” said Steve Wiese, vice president, Commercial Indoor, Acuity Brands Lighting. “We see continued interest in Avanté’s unique aesthetic and performance benefits as new technologies advance in our industry. We made sure that the classic appearance and performance that has made Avanté the market leader were translated to a modern, digital solution, featuring both LED-enabled energy savings and nLight controls.”
Avanté LED is available in 2-by-2, 2-by-4, and 1-by-4-foot recessed luminaire sizes that deliver to 100 lumens per watt (LPW) and is a DesignLights Consortium (DLC) qualified product. Integrated nLight digital technology enables communication between Avanté LED luminaires and nLight Controls devices such as occupancy sensors, photocells, and wall stations.
In order to provide smooth, seamless, and flicker-free dimming to 1 percent, the Avanté LED features eldoLED 0-10V driver as standard. These advanced dimming and control capabilities save energy and prolong the life of the LED modules while taking full advantage of the LEDs' range of dimming.
