ActiveLED Lighting Eliminates Scaffolding and Other Issues Common to Maintaining Light Levels in Places of Worship

GEORGETOWN, Texas, – RingdaleŽ, Inc., Texas-based manufacturer of USA-made ActiveLEDŽ luminaries, announces increased growth of its religious buildings customer base due to the lighting's proven energy-savings and near elimination of maintenance. ActiveLED luminaries provide beautiful illumination in multiple color temperatures with all the advantages of intelligent controls, efficiency, and customization. Since entering the LED lighting market in 2007, ActiveLED has seen a surge of new installations in places of worship: churches, synagogues, and mosques lighting the sanctuary, office, reception, landscape, architectural features and parking areas. Customers attribute the 10-year No Light Loss warranty as a primary contributor to their decision to buy ActiveLED.

ActiveLED is the only line of LED lighting worldwide to offer the unique 10-year warranty that covers power source, light loss and color retention. Supported by Ringdale's patented technology, the 90,000 lumen hour warranty eliminates the risk many buyers are concerned about during the selection process.

"The architecture in religious buildings often has striking high ceilings, decorative alcoves, and other features that present a tremendous maintenance challenge. The usual process of replacing bulbs in cathedral ceilings while you have pews or chairs requires hazardous and expensive scaffolding," states Klaus Bollmann, Ringdale president. "ActiveLED reduces that burden and related safety issues to a minimum."

Ultra-violet rays and heat are a threat to buildings that house relics, works of art, and other articles of significance. This is an issue not commonly thought of when selecting fluorescent, HID, HPS, or incandescent. ActiveLED is free from hard UV and produces very nominal heat whereby preventing scorching or fading. Due to the lower heat emitted, it also reduces the cost of a building's cooling.

ActiveLED is ideal for new and retrofit projects. The ActiveLED portfolio has over 120 interior and exterior luminaries, in addition to the ability to retrofit historical fixtures. St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church in Colorado has been a customer since 2010. Reducing energy demand has proved beneficial for the 105-year-old church in addition to improving light quality.

Jason Sikes, a deacon at Andice Baptist church in Texas said, "We were pleased at how Ringdale ActiveLED lighting was bright yet not as intrusive to the eye" Sikes recalled, "It was quite different and better than any other lighting". The committee was also surprised at the return on investment that LED lighting will give them over conventional lighting with virtually no maintenance costs. A calculation of the LED lighting's ROI estimates it will save the church 75% in energy costs over a 10-year period.

ActiveLED is available directly from Ringdale or its network of resellers. For more information, visit the company online at
