FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- Designed to provide high-performance, visually comfortable, high efficient ambient lighting for commercial and office environments, Amerlux introduces GRUV HE, an upgraded version of the popular recessed linear fluorescent lighting system featuring steel construction, superb aesthetics, lower costs and shorter lead times.

With improved steel construction, the GRUV HE also features integral bend-out mounting tabs to lock on ceiling rid runners, sliding lamp trays that adjust light to the end of runs eliminating dead spots. An extruded aluminum trim for precision interfacing with most ceiling suspension systems, a flush lens and design details result in a clean ceiling alignment.
