Architectural Lighting

LCD Lighting architectural lamps help beautify and illuminate academic and institutional, corporate, and hospitality buildings, monumental structures, residential, retail and entertainment applications, and site and facade lighting projects all over the world.

Architectural 1We manufacture high performance, internal reflectors with the most energy efficient lamps for exact OEM project requirements.  We offer both T8 and T12 Long Life technologies.

T5 & T8 Long Life (50,000 hrs.)
We designed our Long Life lamps for both, hot and cold (low-temperature) operating environments. The cold environment Long Life Lamp encapsulates the T8 lamp in a T12 sleeve providing a thermal insulation for the fluorescent tube to reach full brightness.  The T5 and T8 hot environment lamps use a long stem mount to create stable “cold spot” for optimum output and performance.

T12 Long Life (50,000 hrs.)
T12 Long Life lamps offer direct retrofitting with electronic and magnetic ballasts. They can directly replace existing T12 HO lamps with up to 25 percent greater efficiency. Whether building, designing, or retrofitting, the Long Life T12 is easy to incorporate into specific OEM applications. We have designed these lamps to operate on magnetic and electronic sign ballasts for easy changeover.
