COMMERCE, CA –Feb. 1, 2019 – DECO Lighting is excited to kick-start 2019 by releasing two new LED lighting fixture designs: The interior ambient LED luminaire, Evian, and a full cutoff LED wall mount lighting solution, D464 also known as the Juggernaut. Additionally, DECO is re-releasing a new and improved version of the Skyler Volumetric LED Flat Panel Luminaire.
DECO has revamped the groundbreaking Flat Optix™ technology included in the Skyler interior architectural luminaires and plans to embed this technology in all luminaires going forward. Designed specifically to refract light away from the 60 to 90-degree offending zone of a luminaire, Flat Optix™ micro-prismatic lens delivers a Unified Glare Rating (UGR) of less than 19. Therefore indicating that uncomfortable lighting glare will not disturb most occupants of a space.
Glare is a common problem in workplaces and inappropriate luminaires cause surfaces, such as computer screens, whiteboards, desks etc. to reflect excessive brightness. This causes disruption for the occupants, in terms of headaches and eye strain, which can then lead to reduced productivity and a decline in overall health. However, Flat Optix™ ability to drastically diffuse and redirect light is a key attribute that allows for softer, well-balanced illumination for office spaces, educational facilities, themed areas, and healthcare applications, contributing to the overall well-being of the occupants. Overall, this represents a shift in DECO’s strategy to provide cost-efficient and energy-saving LED lighting while creating lighting solutions that are progressive and human-centric.
The all-new Evian Interior Ambient LED Luminaire and the Juggernaut Modern Full Cutoff LED Wall Pack are at the forefront of Deco’s vision to bring innovative LED lighting solutions that deliver energy-efficient and comfortable lighting experiences to interior and exterior spaces.
“Our goal is to lead the industry with innovative products that help solve meaningful challenges as far as workplace comfort and outdoor area LED lighting with integrated controls,” says DECO Lighting Co-Founder and President, Ben Pouladian. “This is just the beginning of a new era for DECO Lighting, with more forward-thinking products to come.”
To begin, the Skyler recessed volumetric flat panel luminaire features a modern aesthetic to complement today’s interior spaces. Featuring a low-profile form factor, the Skyler is ideal for buildings with low plenum space. Additionally, it is suitable for all standard 2×2 or 2×4 grid ceilings. Compared to other luminaires that are fluorescent housings retrofitted with LEDs, the Skyler has been designed from the ground up with edge-lit LED technology in mind. Additionally, it delivers perfectly uniform, diffused light with high efficacy.
Incorporating edge-lit LED technology and DECO’s Flat Optix™ micro-prismatic pyramidal structures in the lens the Skyler delivers a Unified Glare Rating (UGR) of less than 19. The eliminated glare provides 100 percent useful light to the occupants. As a result, the Skyler luminaire with Flat Optix™ allows for softer, well-balanced illumination for office spaces, educational facilities, and healthcare applications. This contributes to the overall comfort and well-being of occupants.
When compared to existing flat panels, Skyler delivers incredible performance. It has an efficacy of 109 lumens per watt paired with a CRI of 95+ for accurate interior color rendering. Finally, the Skyler is available in color temperatures ranging from a warm 2700K to a neutral 4000K, aiming to easily match the desired ambiance of interior space. The features include:
•Die-cast aluminum frame powder coated white
• Light emitting surfaces are edge-lit acrylic for uniform illumination
• Micro-prismatic lens delivers a Unified Glare Rating (UGR) of less than 19
• Power Factor > 0.95, Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) <10%
•Dimensions (in): 23.75” (W) x 2.34” (H) x 23.75”/43.75” (L)
• Delivers up to 109 lm/W of high efficiency, low-glare performance
• Emergency Backup: Bodine BSL26C Type 1 – 3.0lbs
The redesigned Evian Tube is a sleek interior LED luminaire. Its design complements the open, minimalist look of modern interior spaces. Featuring a sturdy, extruded aluminum housing, the Evian Tube is a specification-grade luminaire delivering quality illumination through its high-end diffuser lens. The Evian Tube is ideal for commercial, retail, and architectural spaces in both new construction and renovation applications.
“The intent was to create a clean looking luminaire that was easily scalable into continuous runs,” says Robert Lang, Principal Product Engineer at Deco Lighting. “We created a luminaire that could be mounted in a variety of ways. Most importantly, we wanted to make it simple to install and easy to service. All while maintaining a clean and minimal aesthetic perfect for any modern interior space.”
Performance-wise, the Evian Tube delivers up to 1,200 lm/ft at 4000K with a 90+ CRI for accurate interior color rendering. The Evian Tube will showcase the all-new DECO Spectrum™ White system. DECO Spectrum™ White is an innovative, human-centric feature that utilizes advanced 5-channel color tuning technology. This feature is customizable to the desired application and complement the daily routine of occupants within an interior space.
The Evian Tube housing is made of 2.5″ diameter extruded T5-6063 Aluminum and features a clear anodized finish. Additionally, the housing features an internal integrated screw port for mounting drivers, controllers (for color tuning), end caps, and continuous run joiner hardware. Furthermore, the lens consists of an extruded acrylic blend with 80% transmissivity and features a snap-fit into the housing. Furthermore, Evian Tube’s end caps feature a powder coated die-cast ADC aluminum; fastened to the housing with an internal galvanized steel pull bracket. The pendant-style mounting adds to the contemporary and modern aesthetic. Lastly, the pendant illuminates areas where concentrated light is needed.
Finally, the D464-LED wall pack features a slim, yet striking aesthetic and is the premier full cutoff wall-mount LED lighting solution. The D464 Juggernaut’s low-profile, sleek design provides a more modern aesthetic compared to traditional wall packs. This modern luminaire is ideal for a variety of outdoor applications, including educational facilities, office space exteriors, municipal buildings, and as security lighting.
The D464 provides maximum energy cost savings over traditional light fixtures in mind, with an optional integrated motion sensor delivering even deeper savings. Furthermore, the full cutoff light output reduces light pollution and delivers illumination only where it is needed most. Additionally, the D464 features three housing sizes providing flexibility depending on the desired aesthetic. Additional features include:
- 4000K (neutral white) or 5000K (cool white) color temperatures
- Optional FSP-211 motion sensor integrates directly into fixture housing
- Performs at up to 120 lumens per watt
- Type II and Type III short IES distribution
