MaxLite Wins Lighting for Tomorrow 2014 Award

WEST CALDWELL, N.J. — Adding to its extensive lineup of prestigious industry accolades, MaxLite receives the Lighting for Tomorrow 2014 Award for its 17-watt Omnidirectional LED A21 lamp. Launched in 2002, the Lighting for Tomorrow awards are organized by the American Lighting Association (ALA), the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Approximately two dozen energy efficiency organizations in the US and Canada participated in supporting this latest competition. The awards were presented at the ALA Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on September 16, 2014.

“We are delighted and honored to win the 2014 Lighting for Tomorrow Award,” Product Marketing Manager Alex Truong said. “With unmatched color quality and consistency, our versatile 17-watt Omni LED Lamp replicates a true A21 incandescent while delivering outstanding performance and more than 80 percent energy savings over traditional lighting sources.”

MaxLite’s 17-watt Omnidirectional LED A21 lamp, which is ENERGY STAR-qualified and features second generation LED technology, replaces a 100-watt incandescent bulb and yields more than 80 percent savings in energy throughout its L70-rated lifetime of 25,000 hours. Strictly matched for color quality and consistency, the lamp is available in 2700K, 3000K and 4100K correlated color temperatures (CCTs) and delivers up to 1600 lumens with an efficacy up to 94. It offers a 300-degree beam angle that produces even, consistent light in all directions.

MaxLite's LED Omni A-line lamp is dimmable down to 10 percent on a wide variety of dimming control systems. It is available in a standard medium base, which enables convenient screw-in as well as GU24-base installation into existing chandeliers, pendants, wall sconces and table/floor lamps that are used for both residential and commercial applications.
