Commerce, CA – 10/04/16 – DECO Lighting released the low-profile Gladetino LED Area Luminaire on July 18, 2016 and is proud to announce that it has achieved unparalleled performance in the LED area lighting arena. Featuring a sleek, futuristic design, the Gladetino luminaire excels in performance due to superior thermal management and delivers crisp, controlled illumination at up to 146 lumens per watt. This DLC Premium listed figure is an industry-first in a high-powered LED area lighting fixture, surpassing similar products from top competitors by attaining performance that is up to 40% more energy efficient. With a wide variety of technical innovations packed into the low-profile housing, the Gladetino luminaire sets the new standard in area lighting.
DECO Lighting, building its products from a factory located just outside of Los Angeles, California, has developed the all-new LED luminaire to replace existing lighting fixtures in parking areas, automotive dealerships, and other outdoor applications. With power consumption ranging from 20W up to 320W, the Gladetino comes in two different form factors and is available with a variety of unique options, including 95 CRI light output for high definition color rendering. The fixture’s state-of-the-art performance is accompanied by next-generation digitalOPTIX from DECO Digital that now deliver up to 40,000 lumens of crisp, pure illumination. The distribution is defined and controlled, providing brilliant light where it is needed and preventing light pollution. Additionally, the Gladetino is available with seven different mounting options to maximize the number of applications it can be used in. The various mounting types are all serviceable from outside the fixture, reducing the risk of installation error since the fixture does not need to be opened during mounting.
The next-generation Gladetino is designed for the future of lighting with wireless controls and monitoring through connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT). Working with several cutting-edge companies in the controls space, including Sensity (recently acquired by Verizon) and Legrand, Deco is integrating wireless smart lighting controls directly into the Gladetino. Combined with its industry-leading performance, the Gladetino’s wireless connectivity to the Internet of Things will radically change the idea of what a lighting fixture is, transforming the area light into an adaptable device that integrates into developing smart cities and benefiting businesses, property owners, and municipalities everywhere with unparalleled control, energy savings, and return on investment.

Top of the line Nichia LEDs used in the Gladetino offer the tightest binning in the industry and a depreciation rate of approximately 15% over the course of 120,000 hours. Deco is able to achieve such high performance levels because they under-drive their Nichia LEDs by more than 50%, creating a system that produces very little heat and significantly extends the life of the LEDs and U.S.-made drivers. Deco also backs their products with the best warranty in the industry. While the vast majority of lighting manufacturers offer only a 5-year warranty with no labor Deco provides a 10-year warranty and full coverage of associated labor costs.
The Gladetino’s photocell and motion sensing options allow the lights in a parking lot to turn on and off by themselves, bringing not only safety and security to the area it illuminates but unparalleled savings to the consumer. When compared to 1000W metal-halide fixtures and even competing LED luminaires, the Gladetino’s cost of ownership is remarkably low. With energy costs on the rise the Gladetino is the first in a series of all-new LED luminaires from DECO Lighting, with several currently in development by the company’s engineering team.
