Date Announced: 27 Aug 2012 East Cleveland, OH — Lighting designers, specifiers and property managers can shape indoor spaces in engaging new ways with GE Lighting's LED Architectural Lighting portfolio. New GE LED Accent, Tetra® PowerGrid and GE LED Wall Washer lighting systems add rich layers, bold backdrops and dramatic accents to retail shops, hotels, offices, restaurants, and a variety of other commercial spaces. "Lighting evokes emotion in its subtle sophistication," said Sarah Truman, GE Lighting Architectural LED Lighting Product Manager. "What we've done here is given professionals a 'matched set' of tools for easily constructing more inspired designs whether in a dining area, lobby, conference room, hallway or showroom."All of GE's new LED Architectural products work in harmony with each other and other lighting systems. These architectural lighting products also feature long life and are backed by the quality and energy efficiency synonymous with the GE brand. GE LED AccentThese low-profile fixtures are ideal for use in tray ceilings, underneath desks and cabinets, within toe kicks and in other tight spaces where accent lighting can enhance the feel of the room and other technology won't physically fit. Strips of ultra-thin LED modules less than half an inch thick can be cut to a variety of lengths to fit any need, even around corners. Each module is equipped with a lens that diffuses light in an even distribution pattern without the "dots" that plagued early LED systems. This 0-10V dimmable LED system is available in a variety of color temperatures, and an optional mounting track allows for even easier installation and additional angling. Tetra® PowerGridThis modular 0-10V dimmable LED lighting system replaces traditional fluorescent lighting in backlighting applications that require broad, uniform light, such as lighting behind translucent panels, walls and ceilings. These modules also can be cut to fit to length, lending brilliant, consistent, evenly diffused light in depths as shallow as three inches deep. GE LED Wall Washer SeriesGE's LED Wall Washer Series brightens and emphasizes textures on vertical surfaces from ceiling to floor of large areas, such as lobbies, upscale offices and long hallways. Designers can choose from three different optical options that work with three specific applications: •Wall WashingUniformly lights vertical surfaces and hides imperfections on flat surfaces; these fixtures are typically mounted in a recess a few feet from the wall•Wall GrazingEmboldens the character of a space by highlighting and accenting textured surfaces; these fixtures are typically mounted less than a foot from the wall in a slot or recess•Cove LightingEvenly distributes light over the ceiling and the upper part of walls; these fixtures are typically mounted in a cove recessThese fixtures can be installed in mounting tracks and angled in ten degree increments (up to 50 degrees) in either direction giving users greater focus and flexibility in their designs. All GE LED Architectural Lighting products have a long rated life of 50,000 hours, carry a five-year limited warranty, produce no UV emissions and are RoHS compliant.
