Irvine, CA, September 28, 2015 – PIXI Lighting today announces that the innovative PIXI FlatLight luminaire – the world’s first and only ultra-thin (only 0.55” thick), long lasting, edge-lit LED flat light with an internal driver – is now available nationwide through HD Supply Facilities Maintenance at www.hdsupplysolutions.com.
The patent-pending PIXI FlatLight luminaire is a lighting fixture that uses the same edge-lit LED technology found in premium flat panel televisions to provide energy-efficient light without glare, flicker or hot spots. With a built-in power supply and slim form factor that is thinner than the diameter of a dime, the PIXI FlatLight fixture can be used in a variety of applications including flush mounted on any flat or hard surface from drywall and concrete to brick, embedded within decorative wood molding, recessed directly into drywall, or dropped into conventional T-grids.
“We are pleased to offer the very latest in light fixtures to our customers and to provide expanded flexibility for retrofit projects,” said Mike Lew, lighting fixtures merchant at HD Supply. “Our Facilities Maintenance experts can help our customers choose the best and most viable lighting options for their project and can help guide them through challenges they may face during a replacement process.”
With verifiable ROI in upgrading from conventional lighting and eligibility for local rebates where available with its DLC (Design Lighting Consortium) certification, Pixi has seen growing demand for troffer retrofits and new construction in a variety of commercial settings. By teaming with HD Supply Facilities Maintenance, the Pixi FlatLight Luminaire is now available to contractors and facility managers of multi-family housing, hospitality, healthcare, and the public sector.
“We are very excited that HD Supply Facilities Maintenance will now offer the Pixi line of fixtures with its exceptional white and brightness uniformity in a rugged, durable frame,” said Kirk Rogers, Pixi Representative. “With powder-coated, cold-rolled steel construction and an extended life rating of 50,000 hours, businesses can immediately benefit from a reduced total cost of ownership.”
