West Caldwell, N.J.—MaxLite is officially offering a new product that complies with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
The new LED Low-Profile Security Light is great for outdoor commercial and residential settings, delivering high efficiency in a compact design.
Appropriate for mounting at heights below 10 feet, the light is designed with a slim, 3.86-inch profile that fulfills ADA guidelines for wall fixtures and easily replaces traditional security lighting in locations such as walkways, entryways and stairwells. Rated for its outstanding performance in cold temperatures, the fixture is UL 924 listed as emergency lighting and features a replaceable battery backup system that provides 100 percent light output for up to 90 minutes after power is lost. An energy-efficient replacement for 70-watt high-pressure sodium fixtures, the MaxLite LED Low-Profile Security Light delivers 1,050 lumens of bright, glare-free illumination while consuming just 13 watts of power. The fixture is equipped with a dusk-to-dawn photocell to maximize energy savings over the product’s long, 50,000-hour lifetime.
“We are excited to expand our line of security lights with a fresh, contemporary design that meets ADA standards,” said Product Manager Francisco Garza. “Its smooth construction, installation-friendly features and battery backup make the Low-Profile Security Light a versatile choice for lighting areas where visibility and safety is of the utmost importance.”
Designed to function in a wide temperature range of negative 4 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, the MaxLite LED Security Light is built with LM-80 tested LEDs enclosed in a watertight, IP65-rated housing. The fixture is offered in an architectural bronze finish that effortlessly blends into any outdoor setting. Easy to install right out of the box, the security light highlights discreet latches that are simply accessible with a flathead screwdriver for secure mounting to a standard junction box or conduit.
LED Low-Profile Security Lights are supported with MaxLite’s five-year limited warranty and lifetime product support.
