Product Release: Lithonia Lighting D-Series Size 1 LED Area Luminaire

ATLANTA - Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI; “Company”), a market leader in innovative energy-efficient lighting and control solutions, has expanded its LED outdoor lighting portfolio with the launch of the D-Series Size 1 LED Area Luminaire by Lithonia Lighting®.  The D-Series Size 1 luminaire offers a stylish, modern look ideal for many commercial and municipal applications, including parking lots, plazas, campuses and streetscapes. Its design makes a bold, progressive statement – in both aesthetics and technology – while still blending seamlessly with any outdoor environment.
When installed as a replacement for 100-400W metal halide luminaires, the D-Series Size 1 luminaire delivers an average of 65 percent energy savings and an expected service life of up to 100,000 hours or more.  The nighttime operation of approximately 20 years is equal to six or more expected metal halide re-lampings. If replacing metal halide one for one, each D-Series Size 1 luminaire is estimated to save owners thousands of dollars in energy and maintenance costs over its lifetime.
The luminaire’s proprietary optics deliver better uniformity and lower power density (watts per square foot) than metal halide, allowing site owners to save on energy while still meeting IESNA standards. The optical design also minimizes the number of costly poles needed for new construction applications.
“The D-Series Size 1 luminaire is a high-performer at a great value, making it the obvious choice for new construction and renovation projects, even when compared to traditional products” said Emily Finn, Acuity Brands Lighting Value Stream Manager for outdoor lighting products. “We are truly excited to demonstrate its capabilities to the commercial and municipal markets.”
The sleek modular design of the D-Series Size 1 luminaire also allows for easy maintenance and future light engine upgrades.  It is available with a wide range of options including dimming capabilities, install-friendly features and the Company’s ROAM® wireless monitoring and control compatibility. It is finished with a zinc-infused powder coat paint that provides resistance to corrosion and weathering. The D-Series Size 1 luminaire also has zero uplight and qualifies as an Acuity Brands Nighttime Friendly™ product, making it consistent with the LEED® and Green Globes® criteria for eliminating wasteful uplight.
This luminaire is available nationally through Lithonia Lighting sales representatives and authorized distributors. For more information about LED lighting and controls, please visit Acuity Brands and Lithonia Lighting at www.acuitybrands.com and www.lithonia.com.
