LumenOptix to showcase LED luminaires at 2013 LED Specifier Summit
Participation in Summit just one of many initiatives LumenOptix is undertaking to support specification community and drive ‘innovative design for the built environment’
(Montgomeryville, PA) Showcasing its “innovative design for the built environment,” LumenOptix™ proudly announces its participation in the 2013 LED Specifier Summit, a one-day conference and product showcase dedicated to educating specifiers about the latest commercial, architectural, and decorative LED solutions. On November 21st in Chicago, LumenOptix will display its Retrofit Downlight Luminaire, or “LRD,” a revolutionary and modular LED retrofit solution that enables a true commercial or institutional downlight of any make, model, or size to be upgraded in just minutes to energy-efficient, maintenance-free LED technology. LumenOptix will also showcase its new “LER” luminaire, a one-piece upgrade luminaire for recessed lay-ins in the already-built environment that combines the high performance, outstanding efficiency, and long life benefits of LED technology with the architectural flare demanded by today’s most discerning designers, specifiers, and commercial end users.
“Lighting is the new lighting and it’s not enough to just emphasize energy savings any longer – lighting quality matters and savings derived through compromised lighting aren't savings at all,” LumenOptix founder and CEO Jay Goodman said. A Board Member of the Washington, D.C.-based National Lighting Bureau whose participation in an October 2013 manufacturer roundtable on the state of the lighting industry was videotaped for Edison Report TV, Goodman, a 25-year lighting industry veteran, feels strongly about promoting the NLB’s message of ‘High Benefit Lighting.’ “Good lighting specified and installed by qualified professionals has benefits far greater than just the savings it generates from reduced wattage and we need to be stewards of that message and promote the value of quality lighting in America,” he said.
As part of its commitment to providing innovative, specification-grade LED solutions for the already-built environment, LumenOptix is proud to introduce a new, higher lumen and higher CRI (92+) version of its popular and revolutionary LRD fixture, available in 6”, 8”, and 10” sizes as well as narrow, medium, and wide beam spreads. In addition, a new, highly-aesthetic version of the company’s unique LER upgrade luminaire for recessed lay-in and parabolic applications will be released shortly, as will specification-grade LRD wall washers and LRD solutions for a variety of sloped ceilings. LumenOptix products will also be prominently featured on eLumit, one of the industry’s most pre-eminent lighting search and specification tools for design professionals.
“Based on the state of technology, it’s nearly impossible to make a fixture that isn’t energy-saving, and the focus in the industry is shifting back to quality lighting design that ultimately contributes to and is largely responsible for overall end user comfort, productivity, performance, and aesthetics in a space,” Goodman said. “In today’s competitive market, an understanding of the importance of high-quality lighting is as critical to achieving the nation’s objectives as is a focus on energy efficiency and cost reduction,” Goodman said. “Our message is that, through innovative design and our industry’s highly qualified community of specifiers, designers, architects, agents, and other accredited professionals, end users in the already-built environment can enjoy high-efficiency, cost-saving lighting upgrades that still employ the principles of good lighting design, and LumenOptix is leading this charge.”
