Jesco: Powered by the company’s patent-pending, state-of-the-art optical design, its new Ultra-Thin/Ultra-Light LED Troffers provide even direct, lighting uniformity, virtually eliminating hot spots typically associated with LEDs. The 3-3/16”-deep housing design complements any acoustic ceiling-tile pattern.  In addition, the ST-2232 is adaptable along flat T-Bar “drop-ceilings” or acoustical grid-ceiling panels in any size space; especially those with shallow or “crowded” ceiling plenums. Kenall Lighting: The T8-LED retrofit kit is the only T8 LED specifically designed to maintain the critical listings of installed Kenall’s wet-location, sealed enclosure fixtures.

AFX ORA LED fixture  Optec ThermaLED exterior luminaire
AFX: The new ORA LED fixture is distinguished by a 12-inch circular powder-coated ring pendant with a matching powder-coated ceiling canopy. With an integrated LED engine, the ORA pendant uses 12 watts of energy to deliver 900 source lumens with a 3000K CCT. The dimmable array allows light output to be adjusted to create the luminance desired. Suspended by a single cord, it can be hung individually or in a group. Optec LED Lighting: The ThermaLED exterior luminaire is engineered with a thermal management system that utilizes independent heat sink technology, drawing heat away from each LED where it dissipates rather than being trapped in the housing. The fixture offers 100 lumens per watt, has a useful life of between 80,000 to 100,000 hours, and standard color temperatures of 4000K and 5000K.


Ledzworld CTA 2.0 LED Lights
Ledzworld: The company’s CTA 2.0 technology emulates the color tones of halogens when dimmed, gradually transforming from a bright soft tone color temperature at the highest level to a warm flame color at the lowest level (2700K to 1600K CCT). The company’s Chameleon driver technology adjusts to its environment by first detecting the transformer type, then analyzing its waveform, and finally adjusting itself to make a perfect electrical fit with that particular transformer.


Tech Lighting GATICA Retail app Soraa Lighting PAR30 LED
Tech Lighting: The company launched a new product line called GATICA™ (General And Task Illumination, Controls, Adjustability) that took three years of research and development. It is a uniquely flexible and modular LED lighting system combining aimable general illumination, wall wash, and aimable spot lighting — all in a highly configurable, ultra-thin profile that subtly integrates into its surroundings. GATICA’s highly configurable components and light performance make it ideal for retail, grocery, corporate office, healthcare, hospitality, museum, library and gallery applications.  According to company president Josh Weiss, it can serve as the sole or majority light source throughout spaces requiring general illumination, wall washing, task illumination, or all three.


Soraa: PAR30, PAR38, and AR111 LED lamps allow users to customize light directly on the lamp rather than on the fixture.  With these new additions, customers now have a choice of lamps as well as accessories to perfectly tailor the light in restaurant, retail, hospitality, museum, and residential applications. Due to its bright, point source GaN on GaN™ LED and breakthrough prismatic optic, Soraa’s LED lamps can accept a magnet in the center of the lens, enabling a simple accessory attachment mechanism without major impact on light output or efficiency.
