Bridgelux LED Arrays extend leadership in retail and hospitality lighting
Oct 12, 2011
The firmís ultra-high colour rendering Decor is optimised for demanding applications such as retail, hospitality, museums and high-end architectural lighting.
Bridgelux has launched its Decor line of ultra-high colour rendering index (CRI) LED arrays.
With a CRI of 97 and a 3-step MacAdams Elipse colour control option, the Decor arrays enable lighting designers to render a full palette of colours over a wide range of light levels to create stunning and sophisticated lighting effects.
Delivering 1200 to 2500 lumens, these new arrays have been spectrally engineered to closely replicate the light quality of halogen and incandescent light sources. These arrays deliver R9 and R15 values of 98, to both enhance reds and represent skin tones accurately, ensuring clean and natural lighting. The Decor series expands lighting options available to the lighting designer, complimenting the standard minimum 80 and minimum 90 CRI products already available from Bridgelux.
"The new Decor arrays take us to the next level, enabling very high-end lighting design," said Giorgio Martini, vice president at Martini. "Developed in collaboration with Martini Lighting R&D, these new arrays have allowed us to rethink lighting and luminaire design in fresh and innovative ways. We can design precision lighting effects and striking contrast ratios enhancing the presentation of retail merchandise. The Decor arrays now permit us to deliver the highest quality light, brilliantly rendering colours and textures. These are the elements that allow us to present our shops and restaurants in living colour."
The Decor arrays deliver light output equivalent to a 75 - 150 watt halogen bulb, while using only 25 - 50 watts of power. Further, the Decor arrays feature the same form factor as previous Bridgelux Array product generations, allowing for a simple upgrade path for existing customers while minimizing design efforts.
Bridgelux says it is the only vertically integrated LED manufacturer and developer of solid-state light sources that designs its solutions specifically for the lighting industry.
