Additionally, conduction and natural convection technologies used in the I-BEAM LED luminaires maximize cooling, fixture performance and lumens per watt.“The I-BEAM LED high bay was designed to provide a quick payback and reduce a customer’s total cost of ownership while also delivering the quality and configurability that has made our I-BEAM family so popular,” said Ed Weaver, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager Industrial and Emergency, Lithonia Lighting. “This flexible fixture offers numerous options for almost every electrical and optical component, including reflectors, wire guards, emergency battery pack, occupancy sensors, surface mount brackets and more.”Available for mounting heights ranging from 15-40 feet and ambient environments up to 131°F (55°C), the I-BEAM LED high bay meets both horizontal and vertical light level requirements through narrow or wide distributions. Reflectors are precision formed and utilize premium materials including ALANOD® MIRO® specular aluminum, while an optional semi-diffuse lens provides glare control and LED protection."I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the I-BEAM LED luminaire is so lightweight that I can lift it with one hand,” said Richard Wyton, Corporate Lighting Consultant with Steiner Electric Company. “This fixture also delivers a very good return on investment. It's so affordable that it can be used as an alternative not only to HID, but to fluorescent as well."The I-BEAM LED high bay will be on display at the LIGHTFAIR® International trade show in Las Vegas May 9 -11, 2012, at the Acuity Brands booth #4108.For more information on the features and benefits of the I-BEAM LED fixture, please visit Acuity BrandsAcuity Brands, Inc. is a North American market leader and one of the world’s leading providers of lighting solutions for both indoor and outdoor applications.
