MaxLite is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of energy efficient luminaires and lamps.MaxLite’s MaxLED family of products offers better quality than incandescent and CFL fixtures (most are LM79 or LM80 IES-approved) and many return on their investment within a year. The LED luminaires offer 50 times longer life than incandescent fixtures, totaling up to 50,000 hours or 12-13 years based on eight hours of daily usage. And they turn on easily without flickering, offer excellent color rendering, and deliver significant energy efficiency.

Constructed without any hazardous materials, the luminaires provide a cool operation with emitting radiation or heat while reducing HVAC costs and maintenance.“The capability of LED to meet or exceed traditional lighting technology is amazing,” said Pat Treadway, Product Marketing Manager for MaxLite. “Colors appear in truer hue, people look healthier and products appear better, using high CRI LED lighting. This is a key strength of this newer technology.
