Orange, California

Orange, CA, September 24, 2013 PIXI Lightingtoday announces that the innovative PIXI FlatLight luminaire –  the world’s first and only ultra-thin, long lasting, edge-lit LED flat light with an internal driver and power supply – is now available in Home Depot stores across the Pacific Northwest region, including 120 locations throughout Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. The expansion follows the successful roll out of the FlatLight in the New York metropolitan and San Francisco Bay Area Home Depot locations and on HomeDepot.com, where the FlatLight generated positive consumer response and demonstrated its distinction as a cost-effective, energy-efficient lighting fixture for both residential and commercial applications.

The patent pending PIXI FlatLight luminaire is a lighting fixture that uses the same LED technology found in high definition televisions to provide bright, uniform, energy-efficient light without glare, flicker or hot spots. The fixtures are the only LED fixtures currently equipped with an internal driver and power supply, making the product completely flat at just .55” thick. Given this, the PIXI FlatLight can be used in a variety of applications including flush mounted on any flat or hard surface from walls to ceilings and concrete to brick, embedded within decorative molding, recessed directly into drywall, and dropped into T-bars.

“We are excited to continue our expansion with Home Depot to bring the PIXI FlatLight to the Pacific Northwest region so homeowners and businesses can experience our unique features, sleek design and innovative technology,” said Richard Myers, Vice President of PIXI Lighting. “PIXI has seen a strong amount of interest in our products since the introduction of the FlatLight, and we look forward to demonstrating how our LED edge-lit flat light can bring energy-efficient, brilliant light to residential and commercial spaces.

PIXI FlatLight luminaires offer homes and businesses a sleek, stylish, and versatile lighting fixture that provides optimal light distribution, creating a soft wash of light and beautifully illuminated living and work spaces. The fixtures come in a warm 2700K color temperature for residential applications and a neutral 4000K for commercial applications. Residential panels, are currently available in three sizes, 1’ x 1’, 1’ x 2’, and 2’x 2’, feature beveled edges and are sold with a mounting plate for surface installation. Commercial-grade panels, which are currently available in two sizes, 2’ x 2’ and 1’ x 4’, last 60% longer than standard troffer lighting with ballasts and are RoHS compliant.  The fixtures use up to 80% less energy than incandescent lighting, switch on instantly, generate very little heat, and contain no mercury or lead, helping to reduce a user’s carbon footprint and energy costs.

The high-performance luminaires can be easily incorporated in both modern and traditional home lighting designs, making colors look more vibrant and enhancing a home’s décor. PIXI residential FlatLight luminaires are the ideal replacement for canned lighting and for new construction, while the commercial grade is perfect to replace existing fluorescent troffers and can be dropped into standard ceiling grids, providing equal or even greater lighting output compared to traditional bulbs and fixtures. PIXI FlatLight luminaires offer extended fixture life (up to 50,000 hours), reducing overall cost of ownership and enhancing product value. This long lamp life makes PIXI the desired lighting fixture for building owners and facility managers, and because the panels stay cool, they reduce HVAC costs.
