For drivers, parking garage lighting is critical for safety, security and wayfinding. A well-lit parking garage should make patrons feel comfortable enough to return. For parking operators, while lighting can make their parking successful, routine maintenance and operations often represents a significant line item on their budget.
To support these goals, Kenall provides a comprehensive series of highly efficacious and energy efficient parking garage lighting solutions. Backed by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC), a non-profit organization that promotes quality, performance and energy efficiency in solid state lighting, Kenall’s parking solutions have been evaluated and have earned the DLC Qualified Products designation. For parking garage owners and operators, this represents not only the ability to qualify for utility rebates, but reduced energy costs as well.
Kenall’s TekDek™ is an innovative, patented-design resulting in an efficacious parking garage fixture with many attractive features and benefits. TekDek, the most efficient parking luminaire on the market, features a tertiary lens designed to reduce the disabling glare common in other LED fixtures. The die-cast aluminum housing provides strength and durability, and the thermal design optimizes LED life. Featuring highly desirable uplight, when specified with a polycarbonate lens and direct to surface mount, the fixture carries Kenall’s exclusive Peace of Mind Guarantee® against breakage. Overall, TekDek creates a brighter, safer and more secure parking environment with an aesthetically pleasing look.
Also included in the series is Kenall’s TopDek™ luminaire, which is ideal for use in surface and area lots. Like TekDek, it also offers glare control through its tertiary lens to ensure the safety and security of pedestrians and drivers alike. Both TopDek and TopDek Post Top™ feature a die-cast, marine-grade aluminum housing with internal house-side shield to reduce wind loading.
To enhance the energy saving potential of their parking garage lighting series, Kenall offers the TekLink lighting control system. TekLink provides a range of systems fit for any budget, including both wired and wireless options. With TekLink, parking garage operators can schedule light levels within the space—individually, site-wide or by zone—to maximize energy savings. Its simplified installation means the TekLink system is commissioned in three easy steps.
Kenall’s parking garage lighting is ideal for parking garage of surface lot installations. Virginia Commonwealth University, Rutgers University and General Mitchell Airport are just a few of the many clients that have specified Kenall’s TekDek for their parking garage. According to Micheal Kornitas, Energy Conservation Manger for Rutgers University, “Because of the subsidies that are in the state of New Jersey and the federal credits that are available, it became a no-brainer to do it. We’ll be pretty much cash positive right from the get-go.”
