Date Announced: 22 Feb 2013

New LED troffer and wraparounds from Lithonia Lighting provide exceptional value and performance for any budget.

Lithonia Lighting introduces the affordable Contractor Select LED troffer and wraparound luminaires from Acuity Brands Inc. (NYSE: AYI). Ideal for replacing T8 fluorescent fixtures, both the GTL LED troffer and LBL LED surface-mount wraparound luminaires deliver general ambient light for recessed ceiling applications such as schools, offices and hospitals. LED technology coupled with MVOLT (120 – 277V) drivers ensure color consistency and an expected service life of at least 50,000 hours.

“GTL LED and LBL LED provide practical lighting solutions that package the value of LED technology in our mainstream offering,” said Casey Thompson, Senior Product Value Stream Manager, Lithonia Lighting.

The GTL LED recessed troffer features a frosted pattern #12 lens to diffuse the light source without compromising lumen output. It is available in 2’ x 2’ and 2’ x 4’ configurations. Smooth-hemmed sides and a lightweight fixture enable easy installation. The GTL LED luminaire is ideal for grid ceilings when replacing traditional 2-lamp T8 fluorescent fixtures.

LBL LED surface-mount wraparound LED luminaires provide high-angle brightness control through a curved prismatic diffuser and linear side prism. Luminous end plates soften the appearance of the fixture for improved aesthetics. Available in 2’ and 4’ configurations, the LBL LED wraparound luminaire is suitable for most surface-mount applications.

“Our customers requested a high quality, cost-effective lighting solution that provides the benefit of LED technology,” said Brian Popes, Director of Stock Programs, Acuity Brands. “These price-driven LED solutions offer the opportunity to discover the value of LED lighting at a very competitive price.”

The GTL LED and 4’ LBL LED luminaires are DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) qualified products. Both the GTL LED and LBL LED luminaires are damp listed, and CSA certified to U.S. and Canadian standards.
