Original Press Release:
New Fluorescent Luminaire Shines Brightly Vertically And Horizontally - Illuminating From Top To Bottom
El Monte, CA (December 5, 2001) - Los Angeles Lighting, a leading innovator of energy efficient fluorescent lighting fixtures for industrial, retail and office use, today announced its HBS100 series of industrial fluorescent fixtures that illuminate even the highest warehouse stack. This unique highly energy efficient lighting fixture provides the clean white light of today's high intensity narrow diameter fluorescent lamps in a design that evenly distributes it from the source to the work surface, shedding a new light on using fluorescent fixtures in high-bay distribution and retail warehouses. The HBS100 also maintains its intensity over its 20,000-hour rated life to provide consistent illumination. These features make the HBS100 a superior light source for replacement of less efficient HID luminaries, HO (800MA) and VHO (1500MA) strips in grocery stores, library and records stacks, warehouse stores, factory lines, distribution centers and other high-bay applications where visibility is important.
Unlike the typical bell-shaped metal halide and pulse start lamps with light paths being focused in a conical beam, the HBS100 illuminates horizontally and vertically eliminating shadows on high warehouse shelves. The average vertical surface luminance is almost twice as bright as an equivalent metal halide and more than 2.5 times as bright on the top third of a stack. Its luminance also does not significantly degrade, delivering consistent light over its entire life span.
When compared to metal halide luminaires, the HBS100 series is able to achieve significant energy savings in new and retrofit construction projects. These savings can be as much as 40% in a typical installation, paying for itself in as little as 9 months. The HBS100 instant on and instant restart allows for even more conservation adaptations such as motion sensors and multi-level lighting scenarios.
The true white light of the HBS100 means that high intensity fluorescent fixtures can be used in any application without worry of color shift or distortion. The HBS100 is manufactured in 3, 4, or 5 lamp configurations as an open strip, with a wire guard, or with a wraparound lens.
Price and Availability
The HBS100 series of luminaires is manufactured to order. The lead-time for shipment is typically 2 weeks or less, coordinated to coincide with the customer's installation. Suggested contractor price of the base fixture starts at $185. Volume discounts are available. Prices will also vary depending on the number of lamps in a fixture and accessories.
