WAC Lighting Introduces IC-Rated Aether Shallow LED Downlight

Port Washington, New York – Designed as the perfect lighting solution to fit shallow plenums above ceilings in residential and light commercial settings, the new Aether IC Rated downlight from WAC Lighting is engineered with a low profile 3.5-inch LED shallow housing. This housing is ideal for installation into small ceiling spaces inside buildings with complex HVAC ducts and heating/water pipes that are located between the floors.

Aether is one of the industry’s only high-output LED ceiling downlight housing with such a shallow depth. Energy Star rated and wet location listed for a variety of applications, Aether fits into ceilings with thicknesses that range from just .50 to 1.5-inches.

Utilizing WAC’s proprietary LED technology, Aether operates with just 22.5 watts and delivers up to 1375 lumens, nearly doubling the performance of a 75-watt MR16 halogen fixture. The luminaire is offered with a 25-degree narrow beam or 40-degree flood beam for various applications. 

Color temperatures range from 2700K to 4000K with a color-rendering index of up to 90. The luminaire dims beautifully with an electronic low voltage (ELV) or 0-10V dimmers and is rated for a 70,000-hour life.

Aether features a 3.5-inch trim aperture with a 35° cutoff angle so illumination is directed precisely where needed. It includes a universal driver that ranges from 120-277 volts. Both round and square trim models are available. Trimless styles are offered for a clean, architectural look on today’s ceilings.
