Kim Lighting Expands LED Collection with a Focus on Performance and Precision Use of New White Light Technologies

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Feb. 5, 2008 - Kim Lighting, a leading manufacturer of outdoor architectural lighting, has announced an expansion of its line of outdoor LED lighting.

Kim Lighting has been leading the industry in developing LED products that use the latest technologies and determining standards for the capabilities of LED for general outdoor illumination. To maintain the quality and integrity of its products, Kim Lighting only uses LED lighting for low level (ten-foot and under) applications, as the company has determined that anything higher would compromise performance. Kim Lighting has stated it will only manufacture LED lighting at greater heights when advances in LED technology can sustain the highest levels of performance and quality.

"Our expanded LED collection now includes a greater variety of low-level lighting that enables our customers to more fully utilize white light LED technologies," said Bill Foley, general manager of Kim Lighting. "Kim Lighting is at the forefront of LED and we are continually developing products that use the latest advancements in LED technology to their full capacity being very careful not to go beyond their capability and sacrifice performance in any way."

The new series' are specifically engineered to take advantage of the latest advances in LED technology, with tasteful and architecturally relevant shapes and forms. Each series offers different shaft options and head designs. The new additions to the Kim Lighting LED Collection are:

LED GEM Bollard Series: 30W, 45W or 60W in five finishes on a concrete or aluminum riser. Offers high-tech style with true area-lighting performance.
