Lake Forest, CA, July 20, 2009 – EcoTek Lighting, a division of Expotrans, Inc., has developed energy efficient, ultra-bright outdoor LED light boxes for award-winning, premium green auto manufacturer Fisker Automotive, Inc. at two company locations.

The high-powered direct backlit outdoor LED light boxes were installed at Fisker Automotive corporate headquarters in Irvine, CA and at the Fisker Automotive engineering facility in Pontiac, MI.

EcoTek Lighting manufactured two outdoor LED light boxes for each building, which included custom-routed aluminum face plates and translucent vinyl graphics adhered to digitally-routed acrylic sheets.

Each Fisker Automotive building now features two brilliant outdoor LED light boxes: one light box with a 30” diameter and the other light box with a 24” diameter.

The translucent graphics and acrylic sheets of the Fisker Automotive outdoor light boxes are illuminated by EcoTek Lighting's LED Backlit Array technology. The rugged, durable light boxes are designed and engineered to provide more than 12 years of maintenance-free illumination.

The installation of the backlit LED outdoor light boxes in the diverse climates of Irvine, CA and Pontiac, MI was an acknowledgement of the fail-proof adaptability of LED lighting to wide temperature ranges.

EcoTek Lighting’s light boxes with Direct Backlit LED Array technology offer:
• Energy efficient LED illumination
• Highest levels of luminosity for easy viewing
• Even illumination across graphics display area
• Corrosion-resistant extruded aluminum construction
• Architectural powder-coated surfaces with five year warranty on finishes
• Compliance with Federal energy efficiency and Green manufacturing standards

The Fisker Automotive outdoor LED light boxes contain LED panels that last from 50,000 to 100,000 hours and provide 55% greater energy efficiency than fluorescent lamps. The high performance outdoor backlit LED light boxes feature grids of LEDs across the entire surface area to provide six times the brightness of traditional edgelit light boxes. All EcoTek Lighting LED light boxes meet Federal standards for energy efficiency, including UL, CUL and CE listings and European RoHS Standards, and contribute points to LEED-certification. They are fully recyclable at end-of-life, and contain no heavy metals or other hazardous components.
