MaxLite's LED Utility Wraps fixtures for ambient and stairwell lighting are DLC listed

Aug. 19, 2014

West Caldwell, N.J. – MaxLite unveils the DesignLights Consortium (DLC)-qualified LED Utility Wraps Series as an energy-efficient lighting solution that meets the latest building and safety codes for high-occupancy dwellings, parking garages, stairwells and other commercial utility applications.

Available in a newly simplified line-up of eight basic models, the LED fixtures qualify for rebates of up to $.50 per kilowatt-hour through select utility rebate programs nationwide. In addition to being DLC-compliant, motion sensor versions meet California's Title 24 requirements for indoor lighting in commercial spaces. "Our new, DLC-qualified LED Utility Wraps are perfect energy-saving replacements for less efficient fluorescent wrap-around fixtures," said MaxLite's Vice President of Product Marketing Pat Treadway. "Our approach to thermal- and lumen-balanced LED engines provides substantial efficiencies using the latest technologies." The LED Utility Wraps are designed to replace multiple F17 and F32 fluorescent lamps using two- and four-foot LED models ranging from 20 to 50 watts. The damp-listed fixtures can be surface or ceiling mounted in covered environments. LED Utility Wraps are dimmable and up to 30 of the 20-watt fixtures can be linked per 0-10-volt wall dimmer. Product versions include emergency battery back-up and occupancy sensors. Wire guards are also available. These LED fixtures deliver up to 10 footcandles from Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recommended heights for stairwells, and seven to 10 footcandles at eight-foot installed heights for parking drive lane compliance. Engineered with low-forward voltage drive rates, the fixtures' thermal and lumen balanced light engines enable cooler operating temperatures resulting in less thermal heat sinks, better LED performance, increased lumen output and more efficient operation. Available in 4000K and 5000K correlated color temperatures (CCTs), MaxLite LED Utility Wraps operate on 120- to 277-volt systems and deliver efficacies of up to 107 lumens per watt. Proprietary binned LM-80-rated LEDs enable superior color consistency, quality and long life. The economical fixtures are constructed with a white finish, heavy gauge, one-piece steel housing and full-length U-Wrap prismatic acrylic diffusers.
