Cooper Lighting Introduces the First Commercial ENERGY STAR® Qualified Compact Fluorescent Downlight Luminaires
Peach Tree City, GA – Cooper Lighting has announced the introduction of a comprehensive line of high-efficiency, high-quality recessed downlights offering value-driven solutions for the commercial construction market. The Halo Commercial line, which features some of the highest optical efficiencies in commercial recessed downlighting, includes the industry’s first commercial ENERGY STAR®-qualified compact fluorescent recessed downlights that meet the new 2012 stringent ENERGY STAR® luminaire requirements effective April 1 (Eligibility Criteria Version 1.1). To help meet today’s stringent energy code standards, the Halo Commercial line of 6-inch and 8-inch aperture downlights and 4-inch and 6-inch directional downlights provides some of the highest optical efficiencies, even yielding over 70 percent (on select open specular reflector trim models). This translates into savings by requiring fewer fixtures and lower watts per square foot, while still delivering a comfortable, well-illuminated space. The highly efficient offering accepts compact fluorescent, metal halide, tungsten halogen and integrated LED lamping options. The Halo Commercial line provides the industry with a new selection of four ENERGY STAR®-qualified compact fluorescent choices to satisfy sustainable project goals. The versatile and thoughtful design of the Halo Commercial line is intended to save time and money for the contractor, specifier and distributor. To do this, all products feature a fully assembled and pre-wired “boat-shaped” housing frame featuring Halo’s patented pre-installed No Fuss Bar Hanger™ system. This innovative system allows for quick installation from above or below the ceiling for both new construction and remodeling projects, allowing for flexible and easy installation. The ready-to-install trims include easy-to-use torsion springs that are aligned with Halo’s universal 180-degree mounting positions. The simple two components ordering (housing and trim) for both installations make stocking and ordering simple.
