Lighting the path to upgrading
Frankfurt, Germany, April 2012 - Introducing an energy efficient and low maintenance lighting solution is crucial for office, retail, hospitality and domestic applications alike. GE Lighting understands the challenges and complexities of upgrading existing installations and, at Light+Building, is demonstrating a comprehensive range of retrofit solutions, which do not compromise on light quality.
The installation of energy efficient lighting has long been considered one of the most practical methods of reducing energy consumption. GE Lighting now offers multiple solutions that can make replacement now and in the future - a lot easier.
GE Lighting's growing family of LED retrofit lamps offers a broad range of shapes, wattages and finishes to accommodate both commercial and domestic application needs. Solutions include GU10, 12V MR16, PAR/Reflectors, and Decorative & GLS shapes, with features such as dimming, different colour temperatures and long lifetimes from 15,000 to 50,000 hours.
A signature retrofit solution from GE Lighting is the Energy Smart LED GLS, which offers a like-for-like replacement of a 40W or 60W incandescent bulb. This is due to the lamp's innovative fin-like design, which enables the same omni-directional light output as a traditional bulb. While achieving excellent light quality, the Energy Smart LED GLS only consumes 9W or 13W of power respectively, and provides up to 80% energy savings.
GE Lighting will also showcase new additions to its dimmable range of retrofit lamps. The range, which currently includes 5W and 6.5W LED GU10 and 7W LED MR16 lamps, will be complemented by new 6W LED GU10 and 7XW LED MR16, both offering 50W equivalence in IEC-size. In addition, a 4.5W LED Decorative range offers true 25W equivalence in Candle, Spherical, Globe and Bent Tip shapes. The ranges offer the aesthetic qualities of conventional lamps, substantial energy savings and a long life of up to 25,000 hours, making GE LEDs an ideal solution for retail and hospitality applications.
“We are now in a position where we can offer customers a wide range of high quality lamps that provide like-for-like replacements for old and inefficient incandescents," commented Glenn Christie, Product Manager, LED Lamps. "Crucially, GE Lighting's range of retrofit solutions all maintain a high standard of colour quality, do not compromise on light output and are designed to fit the international standard size and shape for lamps.”
