Date Announced: 03 Aug 2012 SHIVER™ LED fixtures enhance merchandise appearance; exclusive AccuDrive® technology saves on installation and maintenance.ATLANTA – Acuity Brands®, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) introduces the SHIVER™ LED luminaire from Lithonia Lighting®, a refrigeration and display case lighting system that delivers even light distribution, energy and maintenance savings, and reduced glare. Equipped with AccuDrive® technology from Acuity Brands, SHIVER LED fixtures use the industry’s only single-driver system to operate all fixtures in a 2- to 6-door case. The use of a single driver helps reduce installation and maintenance costs with fewer components to mount or wire. Ideal for use in vertical reach-in freezers, vending machines, trophy cases and retail display cases, the SHIVER LED luminaire can be used in environments ranging from -22°F (-30°C) to 86°F (30°C). Merchandise displays are enhanced with a high color rendering index (CRI) of 85. Additionally, glare on merchandise is reduced due to a 90-degree cut-off angle, keeping light inside the case to highlight displayed products rather than shining into the aisles. SHIVER LED luminaires are engineered to achieve an expected lifetime rating of L70 at 50,000 hours and deliver up to 80 percent energy savings over traditional fluorescent lighting. Additional energy savings can be achieved when SHIVER LED fixtures are paired with occupancy sensor kits from the Acuity Brands portfolio. Sensor Switch® occupancy sensors employ passive infrared technology with a specialized view pattern to detect motion from customers as they move down the aisle. Sensor options include high/low dimming down to 25%, or on/off for a total solid-state solution. “The SHIVER LED lighting system is unlike any other on the market as it offers the total solution that includes the lighting fixture, driver and occupancy sensor,” said Ed Weaver, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager Industrial and Emergency, Lithonia Lighting. “The Acuity Brands portfolio provides a smart and simple solution that improves the end user’s bottom line, as well as the quality of lighting and customer experience.”For more information on the features and benefits of the SHIVER LED vertical refrigeration and display case lighting system, please visit www.lithonia.com.
