MaxLites New Energy Efficient LED Lighting Bolsters Public Safety and Security in Parking Garages

New LED Parking Garage Luminaires Receive Prestigious DesignLights Consortium Certification and Inclusion in Qualified Products List.
Developed as energy efficient lighting solutions that bolster uncompromising safety and security in parking garages, MaxLite introduces LED Parking Garage Luminaires that were recently approved by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) and included in its Qualified Products List (QPL). The DLC was established to ensure that high quality, energy efficient lighting designs are used in all commercial lighting installations, which includes categories that are not addressed by ENERGY STAR.

Highlighted in MaxLites popular MaxLED Collection, the new LED Parking Garage Luminaires are energy efficient replacements for metal halide fixtures and are designed to project a better, engineered light with 30 percent more light in 60 to 80 degree zonal region, and less than 25 percent light lost above 70 to 80 degree plane. This helps drivers locate or maneuver their cars more safely and securely. The 40-watt LED luminaire replaces the 175-watt metal halide fixture while delivering 2640 lumens at a 5000K color temperature, and the 70-watt LED luminaire replaces the 250-watt metal halide fixture while delivering 4200 lumens at a 5000K color temperature.

Our new LED luminaires offer a green approach to providing safe, energy efficient task lighting in todays parking garages, explains MaxLites National Product Marketing Manager Pat Treadway. In the long run, it will cost less to power and maintain LED fixtures compared to their metal halide counterparts while reducing the impact on the environment. Additionally, the recent DLC certification ensures that these fixtures qualify for rebates and incentives from utility programs throughout many parts of the nation.

Highlighted in MaxLites MaxLED family of LED products, the parking garage fixtures are maintenance-free, constructed to not project UR or IR rays, and last up to 50,000 hours using LED modules that are copper plated to provide high thermal transfer rate and minimize the junction temperature of LEDs to maximize service life. The individual LEDs are proprietary binned for uniformed color consistency and quality.

The luminaires are universal and operate with a self-contained LED driver running 120- to 277volt electrical systems. Their heavy-duty, cast aluminum one-piece housings are polyester coated, protected from rust and corrosion, sealed free of dirt and bugs, and crafted with a shatter- and UV-resistant polycarbonate lens.

Available with occupancy sensors to save on operating costs for 24/7 use, the fixtures automatically switch on when motion is detected within the parking garage; the lights automatically turn off 30 seconds after a customer or attendant leaves the area. The sensors can also be programmed to remain on at all times. Future options include emergency battery backup.

The highly durable LED Parking Garage Luminaires operate at outside temperatures ranging from -30F to 130F. Fixture options include emergency battery backup features. Each fixture is 12.25 inches long, 12.25 inches wide and 9 inches tall.

MaxLites full-time application engineers are available to implement proficient lighting layouts and spacing criteria upon request. Please contact MaxLite for accessing this service.

IES LM79 and LM80 reports are available. The fixtures are ETL- and cETL- listed, and backed by MaxLites 5-year limited warranty.
