Overland Park, Kansas - Lusio Solid-State Lighting announced today that its high bay lighting fixtures have again taken top honors in Architectural SSL magazine's 2012 Product Innovation Awards. This marks the second win in a row by Lusio in the high bay lighting category of the annual competition. The winners, named in the March issue, will be presented their awards at the LightFair International trade show this May in Las Vegas.
This year's win rewards Lusio's newest line of high efficacy fixtures: The Lusio Essentials Bay Series. Economically designed for cost conscious commercial and industrial lighting applications, the Lusio Essentials Bay Series includes models that use up to 60% less energy than traditional metal halide and fluorescent fixtures while delivering approximately 6,000 to 36,000 lumens and efficacies of 92 to 103 lumens per watt.
"Building on the success of last year's inaugural program, our second edition of the awards proves lighting manufacturers are committed to solid-state lighting technology and are working arduously to deliver better performance, reliability and affordability," said Jim Crockett, editorial director of Architectural SSL magazine.
Architectural SSL magazine's judges evaluated Lusio Essentials Bay Series fixtures based on multiple factors including luminous efficacy, color rendering index (CRI), correlated color temperature (CCT), thermal management process, optical approach, and their 7-year warranty.
"The Lusio Essentials Bay Series was engineered to be a superior, energy-saving alternative to traditional fluorescent and HID fixtures," said Tom Stafford, President and CEO of LightWild and Lusio Solid-State Lighting. "We are pleased the judges have recognized Lusio's continued dedication to providing high efficacy, energy-efficient high bay lighting solutions, by honoring us two years in a row."
