RAB Lighting introduces LGoose luminaire for street lighting

Aug. 23, 2011
Date Announced: 23 Aug 2011 Northvale, New Jersey - RAB Lighting, a manufacturer of affordable outdoor LED Lighting, is proud to introduce a new LED-based alternative to the traditional and ubiquitous “Gooseneck” lamp which illuminates retail store exteriors on main streets across America. RAB’s new LED Gooseneck, the “LGoose,” delivers an unprecedented combination of light quality, energy-efficiency, long life, and affordability to exterior storefront lighting applications nationwide.The gooseneck lighting fixtures that routinely adorn Main Street storefronts have traditionally relied on inefficient incandescent technology, leading to frequent lamp outages, high energy costs, and recurring maintenance concerns. The RAB LGoose offers a compelling solution to all of these problems -- driving 80% energy savings and providing many years of maintenance-free light output without compromising quality of light.With performance that significantly exceeds Energy Star requirements for chromatic stability during LM-80 Testing, RAB’s LGoose 13W LED features a neutral-white color temperature of 4000K and Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 86 to deliver a natural and pleasing ambiance. Combined with RAB-engineered optics and a frosted glass lens, the quality of light cast by the LGoose is smooth and uniform with no glare, ideal for illuminating and highlighting storefront signage. Additionally designed to match the architectural environment of the typical Main Street storefront, LGoose is available in three different decorative shades (Angled Cone, Angled Dome, or Straight Shade), supporting the majority of outdoor retail decors in one universal fixture design.“We’re extremely excited to debut the LED Gooseneck to the marketplace,” confirms RAB CEO Ross Barna. “In addition to representing an exciting and sizeable new sales opportunity for distributors and contractors, the LGoose offers retail shops across America an energy-efficient, affordable, and high-quality LED alternative to their storefront’s incandescent lighting, which will soon be undergoing federally-mandated phase-out. Overall,” he concludes, “now is the time to upgrade outdated and inefficient lighting installations, and RAB’s new LED Gooseneck fixture offers store owners the perfect opportunity to enjoy the benefits of high-quality LED lighting while preserving the sanctity of Main Street America and supporting the nation’s drive for greater energy independence and a more energy-efficient future.” About RAB LightingFounded in 1946 and located in Northvale, New Jersey, RAB Lighting is a leading manufacturer of sustainable outdoor lighting fixtures using LED, HID, CFL and motion sensing technology.
