Deco Lighting Donates Energy-Saving LED Lighting to the Pico Union Project in Los Angeles

Pico Union LED Project

Deco Lighting, a leading manufacturer of innovative energy-saving lighting solutions and advocate for community activation, is giving back to the community with a donation of several energy-saving LED area lights to the Pico Union Project, a nonprofit organization housed in the oldest Jewish synagogue building in Los Angeles that now serves as a multipurpose space and interfaith community. Deco lighting replaced all four of the historic building’s existing 470-watt metal halide fixtures with four of Deco’s 120-watt D816-LED commercial area lights. With their cost per kilowatt-hour approximated at 13.5 cents, the LED upgrade will save the Pico Union Project over $500 in energy costs per year. Deco Lighting also donated three additional LED area lights for the right side of the Pico Union Project building, which previously had not incorporated any area lighting. Prior to the installation of the new LED fixtures, the sidewalk along the right side of the building was unsafe at night, a result of the city streetlights’ inability to sufficiently illuminate the pathway. However, since the installation of the new Deco LED area lights, the area has become increasingly active during nighttime hours. The Pico Union Project and Deco Lighting posses corresponding values; both organizations strive to foster urban revitalization, and with Deco Lighting’s help, the Pico Union Project is another step closer to its goal of invigorating the Pico Union neighborhood and surrounding community of downtown Los Angeles. The values of the two organizations are evidenced by the efforts they make to improve the city of Los Angeles and enrich its culture. On May 3, 2015, the Pico Union Project and Deco Lighting teamed up for Big Sunday weekend, a three-day festival of service that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to volunteer and work together at hundreds of nonprofit organizations, schools, and other agencies in need of help.

Deco Lighting Steps Up to Assist Victims of T8 LED Recall

US CPSC

Cree Recalls LED T8 Lamps Due to Burn Hazard The recent recall of Cree Lighting's overheating LED retrofit tubes (listed this week on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website) could likely have been avoided if the LED manufacturer had employed a hardwired retrofit solution for standard 2X2 and 2X4 fluorescent retrofit applications.  In an effort to assist endusers affected by this enormous recall, Deco Lighting has chosen to offer discounts on its Linea retrofit kits to endusers who have purchased any of the "quick-fix" LED lamp products designed to fit into existing fluorescent sockets and use existing fluorescent ballasts. "The fact that the LED tube overheats is not a surprise to us at Deco Lighting," says DecoLighting President Ben Pouladian.  "In our opinion, only a hard-wired solution can safely retrofit a fluorescent fixture to LED." The problem with using an LED tube is that most of the original fixtures used T12 lampsand magnetic ballasts (an analog system), but were retrofitted to T8 using an upgraded electronic ballast.  If the retrofitter did not upgrade or replace the existing T8 tombstones then a small amount of leakage current is emitted.  T8 lamps can tolerate this leakage.  Yet, with solid state LED lamps, this current affects the LEDs and the power supply, causing the sockets to overheat and melt.  Deco Lighting does not use the tube technology for this very reason... Click here to view the full article on EdisonReport.       … [Read more...]

Deco Lighting Partners with Nichia

Deco Lighting, a leading LED lighting manufacturer based in Los Angeles, has joined forces with Japanese LED pioneer Nichia to develop new groundbreaking LED technologies. Nichia, arguably the top LED manufacturer in the world, remains at the leading edge of energy-efficient LED technology, producing LEDs with extended life cycles and minimal lumen depreciation. Deco Lighting selects the highest quality components in its lighting fixtures and their partnership with Nichia guarantees a future of innovation for both companies. Deco’s use of Nichia LEDs in its fixtures has enabled Deco to provide the industry’s first Ten Year, 100,000-hour warranty on its LED products, which includes an allowance for labor. Because the LEDs are so dependable, Deco includes lumen depreciation on the warranty, which means they guarantee the same lumen output on the ground even ten years after the product is installed. The close relationship shared between the two companies allows for a streamlined process that enables Deco Lighting to introduce new products into the market immediately, as opposed to the standard 8-10 months it takes for traditional new product sales cycles. With a common commitment to improving the quality and efficiency of lighting in an effort to secure a sustainable future for everyone, Deco Lighting and Nichia have the potential to revolutionize the lighting industry. “We’re very excited to be working with one of the greatest LED manufacturers in the lighting industry,” says Sam Sinai. “We’ve seen a lot of LED manufacturers come and go. The general public doesn’t always know the difference between a high performing LED and a mediocre one. But Nichia is top-tier, they make their LEDs to stand up to the harshest conditions and to last longer than any other than LEDs in the market. That’s why they have the tightest binning of any manufacturer, and their LEDs don’t color-change or depreciate. They’re the Rolls Royce of LEDs, at a price everyone can afford. 2015 is … [Read more...]

Deco Lighting’s Bi-Level Curve Parking Luminaire selected by the IES for 2011 Progress Report

ies_dsblcp

The Deco Lighting DSBL-CP Bi-Level Curve Parking luminaire was selected by the IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) for their prestigious Progress Report for 2011. The DSBL-CP was chosen as an outstanding innovation in luminaire technology and design, and "represents a unique and significant advancement in the art and science of lighting". The luminaire will be featured in the Progress Report presentation at the IES Annual Conference in Minneapolis in November, 2012 and at regional IES conferences throughout the U.S. The innovative DSBL-CP Bi-Level Curve Parking luminaire features Deco-SMART™ with a built-in sensor that automatically saves up to 80% in energy costs. Designed for parking garages, building stairwells, warehouses and low occupancy applications. The luminaire operates with a patented, integral microwave sensor that maintains low level illumination for safety and security, and instantly increases light levels when people or vehicles enter the space. With Deco-SMART™ the low standby lighting complies with minimum footcandle safety egress codes and application design requirements. Using electromagnetic waves, the microwave sensor detects occupants and switches the luminaire to full bright illumination. Each luminaire operates independently, and an adjustable time delay restores the lighting back to a low energy saving level. Energy savings of up to 80% can be achieved, with an excellent one to three year ROI (return on investment). Unlike other bi-level systems, DecoSMART™ does not require external sensors, controls, additional wiring, switching components and their added costs. The DSBL-CP Curve Bi-Level Parking luminaire is ideal for retrofit or new construction in low ceiling parking garages. These applications are often illuminated with inefficient fluorescent channel type fixtures that waste energy operating full bright 24/7, and are not suitable for HID fixtures that require higher mounting heights. The DSBL-CP Curve luminaire features high … [Read more...]
