Introducing Winona Wincove – Modern Illumination Making a Bold, Visual Statement

May 4, 2020

Acuity Brands Lighting (NYSE: AYI) introduces the Winona® Wincove, an integrated, prefabricated cove lighting system designed to minimize common complications with cove lighting installation and that discreetly illuminates indoor architectural spaces.

“Wincove can create both accent lighting or indirect ambient lighting, which creates multiple layers of light to evoke a strong, confident statement,” said Donna Sumner, Director of Architectural Products. “With its knife edge construction option, Wincove subtlety integrates lines and planes to unify a space without the extensive time and design work on the jobsite typical with cove lighting.”

Ideal for multiple applications, it provides a broad range of lumen outputs, color temperature options and flicker-free diming from the embedded eldoLED® technology. Wincove can be specified with nLight® wired and wireless controls to create a digital lighting network that yields higher energy efficiency, building code compliance and maximized occupant comfort. It includes precision optics for a consistent aesthetic appearance with two light distribution options (asymmetric and Lambertian).

“There is a need for a higher quality, seamless cove lighting system that can be integrated with controls and illuminate architectural features,” said Tim O’Brien, Vice President Architectural Ambient Lighting at Acuity Brands. “This is a direct result of our teams innovating for our customer needs with digital lighting technologies at Acuity Brands.”

Wincove can be mounted across vertical or horizontal surfaces in interior spaces, including healthcare settings, corridors and commercial office spaces. The Wincove luminaire:

·        Is easily installed due to the robust engineering design that includes features such as seamless welded corners and toolless inner alignment brackets

·         Blends into the architectural environment with a discrete, timeless aesthetic that minimizes plane disruption with a zero-degree line of sight

·         Is available in two ft., three ft. and four ft. lengths and in two extrusion profiles (knife-edge and square-edge) each with two mounting options (mud-in and drywall)

·         Comes standard with a clear, wipe-down lens or can be specified with an optional frosted, wipe-down lens
