Guth Lighting beefs up wall pack performance with LUXEON Rebel LEDs

Dec. 12, 2008
Date Announced: 12 Dec 2008 SAN JOSE, CA — Guth Lighting’s just-released SUNDOWNER LED family of wall pack fixtures leverages LUXEON Rebel LED technology to provide a never-before-possible 60-degree beam spread in a dark sky housing, improving visibility while also reducing the number of fixtures needed to cover a given wall expanse. Guth’s new LUXEON-based wall packs also extend luminaire life up to seven times, slash energy needs by 80%, support ‘green’ initiatives, and significantly lower the total cost of ownership.The new line consists of five models containing from 4 to 40 LEDs for scenarios ranging from doorway lighting to 20-foot-high mounting applications. Instead of only illuminating the ground like conventional wall packs, the fixtures take advantage of the LUXEON LED’s physical and optical properties to distribute light uniformly over a 60-degree field for partial wall coverage. Benefits include:• A 30% reduction in fixturing needs because a single wall pack can light a wider area. • Better visibility at wall level, increasing comfort and safety for passersby.• Increased efficiency due to use of light traditionally blocked by the dark sky housing.A detailed case study about the LUXEON-based Guth Lighting SUNDOWNER LED is now available at Philips Lumileds Philips Lumileds is the world's leading provider of power LEDs for everyday lighting applications.
