Suspended LED Luminaires offer choice of direct/indirect lighting.

Press Release Summary:

Offered in 2, 3, 4, or 8 ft lengths, 7 in. wide aquila1 has low-profile (1.5 in.), softly curved design with unobtrusive lines and delivers low-glare, ambient illumination. Fixtures are available as indirect only with solid housing or with milled slot openings (¾ or 1½ in. wide) in housing bottom to create semi-indirect distribution. While available for use with dual cross section T5 fluorescent lamping, luminaires feature Nichia LEDs and offer 3,000K, 3,500K, or 4,000K color temperatures.

New LED Direct/Indirect Suspended Luminaires: Introducing aquila1 from aolight

New Product Introduction: aquila1 — Designed for the new “Elements” clean, discrete and simplistic product line, this energy-saving indirect or semi-indirect suspended luminaire integrates with architecturally designed commercial interior spaces.

Design: The  a•light In-House Lighting Design and Engineering Team.

Manufacturer: The alight division of AmerillumBrands, U.S. manufacturer of energy-saving LED and linear-fluorescent lighting exclusively.

Product Applications: aquila1 delivers visually comfortable low-glare, highly energy-efficient ambient illumination for a broad range of commercial, institutional environments.  These include corridors, offices, reception areas; libraries; schools and universities; upscale retail; hospitals, clinics, laboratories and physician offices; museums and galleries; entertainment venues, hotels, merchandise showrooms and more.  Wherever the need for high-performance lighting coincides with a desire for integral architectural design and exceptional energy conservation.

Product Description:  aquila1  is characterized by, and memorable for its slender, low-profile, softly curved design with simple, unobtrusive lines.  They are a mere 1.5 inches high, only 7-inches across, available in four standard lengths, two, three, four or eight feet. 

Luminaires are available as indirect only with a solid housing or with optional milled slot openings in the housing bottom, either ¾” or 1-½” wide, to create a semi-indirect distribution. Slot openings may be shielded by two diffuser options: the a•cirrus™ lens option presents a “no lamp image” diffusion, in an opal acrylic flat lens. The HTLO™ optic is ideal for LED as the high transmission (93%) linear patterned lens beautifully blends diodes together for even light distribution.

Fixtures suspend from ceilings via a single 1-mm stainless-steel aircraft cable with adjustable safety fittings, terminating into square canopies.  Stem suspension may also be specified, as may stems with earthquake zone canopies.

Luminaires are available for use with dual cross section T5 fluorescent lamping, but ideally, LED light with a choice of options and outputs allows maximum lighting-design flexibility, whatever the requirement. Only high-performance Nichia LEDs are used. The LED option is available with low, standard or high outputs:  Low output equals 240 lumens/ft at 4 watts/ft.  Standard output equals 1200 lumens/ft. at 10 watts/ft.  High output equals 2400 lumens/ft. at 20 watts/ft. 

A precision-formed proprietary internal reflector design, and optimal LED spacing, minimizes any “dot-dot-dot” appearance from LEDs.  Units set new standards for even, high-efficiency, high-color rendition white-light distribution. Color temperatures are available in 3000ºK, 3500ºK or 4000ºK.

aquila1  LED models operate on a 12V DC LED system, 120V to 277V universal voltage. All LED drivers are now Constant Current to reduce power consumption.  Low temperature performance to –40ºC.  A zero to 10V dimming module is available.  Units comply with IES LM-79 and LM-80 performance standards.   LED combination lamp/driver is rated for 60,000+ hours, has a 5-year factory warranty.

LED boards are designed and manufactured in-house using precisely-binned Nichia® diodes on high-quality, aluminum-clad boards designed for maximum heat dissipation.  Appropriate thermal controls ensure proper fixture performance.   Manufacture of a•light’s own boards allows shorter lead times, superior quality control, greater cost-competitiveness, and provides flexibility to quickly update specifications based on new technology. All a•light luminaires and LED boards are made in America, in the company’s own modern architect-designed plant.

Construction & Finishes:  aquila1 fixture housings are constructed from high quality 60% recycled aluminum extrusions, with precision cut steel endcaps.  An alightanium™  low environmental impact powder-coated finish is standard; satin black, satin white, textured eggshell white or other custom colors may be specified. aquila1 is UL, cUL damp listed standard; Made in America.
