Universal Lighting Technologies expands LED retrofit options

Sept. 21, 2016
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc., a global leader in lighting and member of the Panasonic Group, will expand its current Everline LED Retrofit Kit family with the LED Linear Retrofit Assembly option for indoor and covered outdoor strip fixture applications.

The Linear Retrofit Assembly (LRA) will be universally compatible with a variety of fluorescent strip fixtures on the market and requires no redesign or revised layout to retrofit a standard 4” wide 4-foot or 8-foot fluorescent strip fixture to LED.

“Panasonic is committed to developing LED retrofit products for nearly every application,” said Product Manager, Stephanie Boyle. “Universal’s LRA embodies that goal as we have now developed a high performance LED solution that installs in damp locations like parking garages, unconditioned stairwells, and under canopies. Not only does the LRA provide the energy efficiency of LED, it’s also a great option to refresh the look of an older fixture. Its lensed modules are mounted to painted steel panels so end users have the look of a new strip fixture while contractors benefit from the labor cost savings of retrofitting instead of replacing an existing unit.”

The LED Retrofit Assembly includes (1) or (2) Everline LED lensed modules pre-mounted, (1) LED Everline driver (0-10V dimming) pre-mounted, (1) or (2) 4’ strip fixture panels, plus installation instructions.

The Linear Retrofit Assembly’s diffuser provides broad and even light distribution and the LED system efficacies exceed 100 lumens per watt.

The Linear Retrofit Assembly is UL Classified (suitable for dry or damp locations), is DesignLights Consortium (DLC) listed, and has a seven-year warranty.
