Date Announced: 25 Aug 2010

Farmingdale, NJ – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), an innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced that its DuroSite™ LED High Bay fixture has achieved qualifications of the DesignLights™ Consortium’s newest category, “High-bay and Low-bay fixtures for Commercial and Industrial buildings.” Utilizing the latest lighting-class Cree Xlamp® XP-G LEDs, the DuroSite LED High Bay luminaire has been shown to significantly reduce maintenance and energy consumption compared to conventional lighting in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, cold storage, canopies and gymnasiums.

The DLC’s Qualified Products List provides a resource for program administrators and designers to determine which lighting products meet established energy efficiency guidelines currently not addressed in the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program. The DLC strives to ensure that high-quality, energy-efficient lighting design becomes commonplace in all lighting installations. The program is operated by the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership and sponsored by numerous utility companies and energy efficiency organizations around the United States and Canada.

Fixtures like the Dialight DuroSite High Bay that are included on the DLC’s qualified product list may also be eligible for state and utility energy efficiency program incentives—rebates that can enhance the overall energy and maintenance cost savings of retrofitting existing traditional fixtures with high-efficiency, low-maintenance LED fixtures. All high bay fixtures on the DesignLights™ qualified products list must meet stringent performance and light output requirements which are verified with LM-79, LM-80 and In-Situ Case Temperature reports by a third party test lab.

“The DLC’s qualified products list serves as a valuable set of guidelines to help companies choose the right solid-state lighting products to both save money and meet sustainability goals,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “Our DuroSite High Bays have already earned praise from our customers for their energy, cost and maintenance savings and we’re thrilled to have this product recognized with inclusion on this list.”

Numerous Fortune 100 companies are already enjoying the benefits of the Dialight DuroSite luminaire, which offers maximum energy savings, reduced maintenance cost and a superior quality of light, while consuming just 150W per unit. For added energy savings, the instant on/off feature eliminates wasteful warm-up time, allowing the lights to be switched off when not needed or equipped with an optional occupancy or motion sensor. The mercury-free, shock- and vibration-resistant fixture offers a power factor of .998 for improved stand-by energy savings. The DuroSite is designed for easy change out from traditional lighting over existing wiring.
