Retrofitting outdated light fixtures is one of the quicker ways to improve energy performance at a property. LEDs are the wave of the future due to their longevity, low power consumption and high-lumen output. Becoming an early adopter is the best way to ensure the largest return on your investment. This is especially true for parking garages and stairwells, where lights are typically on full blast 24/7.
If you are in the market for garage or stairwell lighting check out the MaxLite family of LED Vapor Tight Linear fixtures. The line now includes models that are qualified by DesignLights Consortium (DLC) for use in parking garages. The 50-watt luminaries replace fluorescent strip lights with uniform, low-glare illumination that optimizes pedestrian and vehicular safety. Fixtures also feature dimming capabilities that can reduce overall energy efficiency, while occupancy sensor versions support compliance with Title 24 requirements for commercial indoor lighting in California.
The four-foot fixtures deliver 4,197 lumens and internal reflectors that produce a beam of distribution that illuminates both the drive area in front of vehicles and the hood and door handle elevations. This shadow-free environment helps keep your residents safe both in and out of the car. A one-piece, non-corrosive polycarbonate body protects the LED light source from dust, dirt and vandalism. The body’s stainless steel closures are removable for easy cleaning.
An additional benefit of the LED system is that the low consumption allows for the use of an optional battery back-up system that can keep a light illuminated with no degradation for up to 90 minutes in the event of a power outage.
