Construction & Mounting

Excellent design, precision-tooling and automated production is the combination that produces our troffer style housings. Most industry today uses pre-painted,folded 22 gauge steel. We use die formed 20 gauge steel with welded , grinned, sanded corners, that produces a seamless troffer with no light leaks. We manufacture, any size available.
Integral powder-coated LED housing with excessive reflectivity for increased lumen output
Standard powder-coated colors are white,black and silver. Custom processed wood finishes, aluminum anodized finishes, chrome/gold plating and custom finishes are available as well. We also accept RAL and Pantone numbers for powder-coating color choices.
Dual layers of clear and opal white flexible membrane is stretched over the frame. Opal white is to room side.
Surface mounted fixtures have pre-drilled holes for ¼” threaded rod by others. Surface mounted fixtures have ½" knockout for power feed.

  • The table above is a quick reference. When calculating loads make sure you add direct and indirect LPW to get total wattage. Please refer to photometric report for detailed information.
  • Our light engines are precisely designed for optimal operation of LED assemblies.
  • Our standard LED's CCT (correlated color temperature) range is 2700K to 4000K. Other CCT values are available upon request.
  • We log LED bin codes for each project we supply to ensure color consistency and keep a record of those projects for future reference.
  • CRI offered is 80+, and 90+ Note: on 90+ CRI use .85 multiplier
  • Tunable white, warm dim and other special LED colors available.
  • Custom Lumens Available
  • We design our own printed circuit boards to ensure high luminescence efficiency, low thermal resistance and long-term reliable operation.
  • Light engines are easily replaced.

  • Rated life (90% survivorship) of 50,000 hours at 50º C max. ambient (and 70º C max. case) temperature. At maximum driver load: Efficiency >84%, PF>0.9, THD<20%.
  • POE - We are working with Molex/Igor POE systems. We can add a POE driver into our fixtures or remote them. Based on the fixture you select, we will notify you (or you can contact the factory) to see if we can install the P-driver or the P-driver needs to be remote. Just add POE1 in the spec and we will advise. Please keep in mind you need to specify a complete POE control system before specifying POE1.
  • Our LED drivers feature HPF (high power factor), universal voltage 110 - 277 VAC and include 0-10V dimming.
  • Emergency drivers are factory installed as an option, long life, high temperature, recyclable Ni-Cad battery pack with test switch and charge indicator. EMR is minimum of 90 minutes operation to meet code.
