Cree Launches New High-bay LED Lighting
Reduced glare lighting range delivers up to 150 lumens per watt and a payback in 1.5 years
Cree has introduced a new range of high-bay LED lights for industrial, retail, civic and athletic venues. Called the KBL series, it is said to have dramatically reduced glare for a safer, more productive work environment.
The new high-bay is engineered to deliver maximum savings and industrial-strength performance with up to 150 lumens per watt (LPW) and a payback as fast as 1.5 years, according to Cree.
"Cree's new KBL LED High-Bay Series is the ideal solution for the high-bay market and delivers an average of 2,000 lumens more than the nearest competitor," said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting.
"With best-in-class lumen maintenance in applications up to 50degC ambient, the KBL Series offers unprecedented reliability for the rigours of retail, industrial manufacturing and warehouse applications."
The KBL Series is available in 18,000 and 24,000 nominal lumen output options with correlated colour temperatures (CCTs) between 3000K and 5000K, and is virtually maintenance free with zero warm-up or restrike time. The new series offers increased productivity and safety by minimising work stoppages and maintenance to replace lamps and ballasts, and is eligible for DLCÂ® Premium Certification to advance corporate sustainability goals.
