Cree redefines the troffer market

The firm says its new ZR series LED troffer delivers excellent light quality and aesthetics for under $100
Cree says it is redefining commercial lighting with the ZR series LED troffer.

The new troffers deliver a new category of performance, affordability and inspired design.

Featuring Cree TrueWhite Technology, the ZR Series LED troffer delivers superior colour quality (> 90 CRI) in an ultra slim, sleek package at an initial price starting from $99.

The ZR Series LED troffer cuts energy consumption in half, and with standard 0-10V dimming can accelerate its already rapid two-year payback. This is based on energy consumption and payback calculated against a fluorescent three-lamp fixture (with lamp and ballast equal to 88 system watts) and based on typical commercial usage of 12 hours per day and $0.11 per kWh electric costs.

“It takes more than incremental improvements in performance to achieve widespread adoption of LED lighting. Cree innovation starts with a clean slate, designing a new troffer with an attractive appearance that provides superior light quality, high efficiency and also enables fast installation,” says Norbert Hiller, Cree executive vice president, lighting.

“The ZR Series LED troffer is a winning alternative, offering uncompromised performance and an industry-leading 10-year limited warranty at a remarkably low price,” continues Hiller.

The ZR Series LED troffer’s thin 3.9” height and lightweight design enables faster installation without costly ceiling alterations. Offering a quick and easy one-for-one replacement of inefficient fluorescent troffers in education, healthcare and commercial building applications, the ZR Series LED troffer simplifies installation and significantly reduces labour costs during its 75,000-hour lifetime in all 1’x4’, 2’x4’ and 2’x2’ configurations.

The Cree ZR series LED troffer is sold through Cree lighting sales channels throughout the U.S. and Canada.
