LEDs Magazine highlights indoor and outdoor SSL fixtures offering flexibility in output, beam distributions, layout, and more with attention to lumen placement and other discriminating features.

This issue’s mix of indoor and outdoor luminaires demands notice for delivering flexible illumination capabilities across interior and exterior applications, with features to reduce glare, minimize light trespass, and deliver a range of luminous output levels and effects to meet a variety of occupant and environment needs.

Billie indoor luminaire, Eureka Lighting

The internal geometry of Billie’s hollow center design improves light spread inside, while a bottom-edge return reflects shadow-free light evenly onto the interior luminaire surface for diffuse and comfortable indoor area illumination. Multiple size options, tunable white capability, and nLight AIR or Wired network controls compatibility are available. A side-entry power cord eliminates disruption to the fixture's luminous center while preserving its clean, contemporary aesthetic.


XFit high-power floodlights, Keystone Technologies

Switch-adjustable power and color selection technology enables users to easily modify power output and CCT, with models capable of 19,600 lm and 140W/100W and 40,600 lm and 290W/210W, respectively. CCT choices include 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K for application-specific needs. A NEMA three-pin dusk-to-dawn photocell and Keystone dimmable driver keep floodlights operating only when darkness is detected. The IP65 rated fixtures can be enhanced with beam-angle lens kits and glare shielding to reduce light trespass.


Tribeca outdoor area luminaire, Cyclone Lighting

The modern, wedge-shaped Tribeca luminaire design deters icicle accumulation. A sleek, push-button latch enables easy maintenance access. A proprietary Orion light engine combines 180° orientable optics, LEDs, and thermal management components with a waterproof acrylic lens for increased photometric performance over its expected 100,000-plus hours lifetime. Lumen packages range from 7,000 to 34,000 lm (del.) for an estimated 60% energy savings over 50W to 400W HID fixtures, with 14 light distribution options available.


STENOS family, Luminii

STENOS comprises a family of micro linear track and downlight form factors utilizing a proprietary chipscale-package (CSP) LED–based micro-optics engine. A narrow 15° TIR optic with a bidirectional tilt enables precision aiming and uniformity in a compact footprint. CCTs range from 2700K to 4000K, with a 93+ CRI and high R9 value for color consistency. Easy Snap accessories accommodate changing illumination layouts, especially in museum and cultural settings, hospitality, and retail environments.


FortaCast drive-over in-grade lighting, Organic Lighting Systems

Designers can create continuously illuminated curved or straight patterns with these precast, interlocking polymer concrete sections for drive-over applications up to 50,000 PSI. The fully submersible, IP68-rated SSL strips featured tempered glass lenses with impact-resistant diffused surface treatment; they install like pavers to eliminate secondary metal housings and reduce installation costs. RGB/RGBW light strips are programmable via DMX controls and powered by remote 24V drivers.


Absorb I luminaires, A-Light

Absorb I suspended luminaires deliver both direct (808 lm/ft) and indirect asymmetric (1,154 lm/ft) illumination for reduced glare, with optional tunable white light and nLight wireless networked controls. Sculpted, acoustic PET felt panels come in 30 colors for sound dampening performance with a refined aesthetic. Available in 24- and 48-inch lengths, fixtures can be discreetly connected in-line or with 90˚, 120˚, or custom corners hidden between felt layers.
