Oct. 26, 2011
Date Announced: 26 Oct 2011 Northvale, New Jersey - RAB Lighting, the leading manufacturer of affordable LED lighting, has expanded its popular family of LED Area Lights with the introduction of its new ALED78, a 78 Watt high-performance LED which replaces 250 Watt metal halide area lights. Designed to illuminate parking lots and roadways, the ALED78 is an energy-efficient, aesthetically-pleasing, and affordable LED alternative to the significantly higher-wattage metal halide and high pressure sodium technology currently serving this vast market.Sleek and high-performing, the ALED78 delivers nearly 70% energy savings relative to 250 Watt metal halide or HPS technology and features superior heat sinking capabilities through its unique and patent-pending heat-dissipating design. The fixture’s specially-engineered, spec-grade optics provide clean and uniform light distributions which meet IES Lateral Distribution Types II, III, and IV, enabling the ALED78 to optimally support a broad range of popular outdoor lighting applications including parking lots, walkways, bike and jogging paths, ramps, building perimeters, and roadways.In addition to alleviating maintenance costs and concerns by way of the fixture’s long, 50,000-hour average rated life, installation of the ALED78 has been made easier and more convenient than ever through RAB’s full line and quick-shipping inventory of 10-30 foot straight steel poles. The fixture’s full cutoff design is Dark-Sky certified to ensure that light is directed exactly where it’s needed, while its durable die-cast aluminum housing and UL listing for wet locations help ensure that the ALED78 provides reliable operation in a variety of outdoor and inclement weather settings.“With the introduction of our new ALED78 area light, RAB is excited to be offering yet another one-for-one LED replacement for a popular lighting application which has to this point been dominated by much higher-wattage technology,” said RAB Lighting CEO Ross Barna. “In addition to delivering outstanding performance, the ALED78’s RAB-engineered design ensures a more sustained light output over time to enhance and promote safety and security. Priced affordably and designed to complement any décor, ALED78 offers a powerful, energy-efficient, and long-lasting approach to lighting the nation’s range of parking lot, walkway, and other outdoor lighting applications.”The ALED78 is offered with RAB’s comprehensive, whole-system 5-year warranty and is tested to IESNA LM-79 and LM-80 standards by third party provider NVLAP Accredited Labs.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.
