Kim Lighting Launches Lightvault LED and Minivault LED Series



New white light LED technology offers bright illumination, low heat output and rugged durability

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., May 22, 2008 - Kim Lighting, a leading manufacturer of outdoor architectural lighting, announced today that its Lightvault Series and Minivault in-grade up light series both now include new super bright white LED technology.

Kim Lighting's LED Lightvault and Minivault lines assure rugged, high endurance performance for decades. Both series combine efficiency with the power to illuminate monuments, trees and other architectural elements as well as traditional sources. Perhaps their most innovative feature is their low-heat output that brings an element of safety, enabling their use in areas accessible to pedestrians. Like Kim's other Lightvault luminaires, these two new series are designed to withstand the most abusive environments of all lighting systems, having to continually resist moisture, fertilizers, flooding, debris, vandalism and UV rays from the sun.

"Our Lightvault and Minivault series both integrate the latest LED technologies with durable and intelligent design to create products that perform under the most extreme conditions," said Bill Foley, general manager of Kim Lighting. "Once again, we are bringing new LED products to market that maintain our high standard of quality and performance."

Kim Lighting's Lightvault LED Series brings consistency and reliability to in-grade fixtures, which is important due to the product's inherent inaccessibility and often high-profile placement. Key features of the line include:

Two distinct distribution, spot or narrow flood.
o Low heat output.
o Natural bronze or brushed stainless steel lens rings with eight captive 5/16" stainless steel hex-socket cap screws.
o 18W LED super bright white technology.
o 50,000+ hours lamp life.

The Minivault LED Series is the perfect solution for accenting small elements or for larger vertical surfaces. Key features of the line include:

Three distribution choices offering spot, narrow flood or wide flood.
o Low heat output.
o Natural bronze or brushed stainless steel lens rings with five captive 5/16" stainless steel hex-socket cap screws.
o 5W, 6W or 15W modules.
