LED luminaires “will be installed in new homes by fall 2005”
Permlight has introduced a complete line of low-cost LED-based products for the new home market, which are compliant with energy codes and Energy Star 4.0.
Based around Permlight’s patented thermal management technology, the EnbrytenLED line includes step lights, hallway and walkway lighting, cove lighting, pendants, and a versatile recessed can light and surface mount ceiling light.
As a departure from conventional LED luminaire design, the products feature Permlight's completely replaceable and serviceable modular LED technology where LED boards (the light bulb) and power supplies (ballasts) are easily changed with a screwdriver. All products are designed to fit existing new construction electrical configurations and all run on line voltage (90-240VAC) and do not require external or remotely mounted power units.
"We were told by the big three lighting companies that it would be years before we saw LEDs in homes," commented Manuel Lynch, President and CEO of Permlight Products. "We are quite pleased to announce that as early as fall 2005 people will be moving into homes using our new advanced low-cost luminaires.
The Enbryten Down product uses a new surface-relief texturized heatsink technology, and a newly developed total internal reflection (TIR) lens. The product also uses Kineform diffusers, a new holographic film technology that allow home builders and home owners to create virtually any light shape and pattern desired by simply dropping in a thin sheet of plastic.
"Who says that high tech energy efficient products have to be unfashionably ugly," commented Nate Doney, Marketing Manager for the new residential line. "We have had countless meetings with purchasing managers, architects, and engineers in the new home construction market and we keep hearing that they like our prices and like the quality of the products."
Permlight plans on expanding the EnbrytenLED residential line-up this fall with new wall sconces, chandeliers, porch lights, and vanity lights.
