April 26, 2011
Date Announced: 26 Apr 2011 Innovative SSL fixtures offer significant energy savings and provide solid lumen performance backed by 7-year warranties Overland Park, Kansas – April 26, 2011 – Lusio Solid-State Lighting, a worldwide brand and division of LightWild, today announced the installation of Lusio SSL fixtures in CFM Distributor’s newest Midwest facility. CFM Distributors specializes in supplying sustainable heating, cooling and refrigeration systems to professional heating and cooling contractors who install them for the Midwest’s consumers. They also focus on ensuring their own facilities and systems are as sustainable as possible. The company initially chose Lusio SSL fixtures when they expanded to their newest location in Omaha, Nebraska as they wanted the showroom’s lighting system to reflect the company’s embrace of the latest building technologies to reduce energy consumption.“Lighting is a critical component of making a space as large as ours energy-efficient,” said Tom Roberts, President of CFM Distributors. “We explored several options and found that the Lusio Solid-State Lighting fixtures will pay for themselves over time by helping us lower our energy bills. The fixtures also provide an outstanding quality of light, and reduce the cooling load substantially. Being a supplier of heating and cooling systems, we are intimately aware of the cooling load imposed by conventional lighting systems. This Lusio installation resulted in substantial first cost HVAC system savings, as well as long term energy savings from both the lighting efficiency as well as the cooling load reduction. It’s a real win-win. A similar showroom of ours required two HVAC systems, while this one utilizes only one.”Roberts noted Lusio’s cool operating temperatures and low maintenance requirements (70,000-hour L70 lifetimes) as additional key factors in choosing Lusio. Also, Lusio fixtures do not contain mercury or other harmful substances, which complements CFM’s environmentally friendly initiatives. The fixtures installed by CFM Distributors are part of the Lusio Solid-State Lighting family that includes 80 models and five light distributions tailored to commercial and industrial facilities that utilize high bay, low bay, and aisle lighting fixtures.About Lusio Solid-State LightingLusio delivers a new experience in commercial and industrial lighting with fixtures that provide quiet, super-clean lighting with lumens that meet or exceed traditional legacy fluorescent and metal halide lighting sources.
