PIXI Lightingtoday announces the introduction of the innovative PIXI FlatLight™ luminaireat LIGHTFAIR International, taking place April 23-25, 2013 at the Philadelphia Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. The world’s first ultra-thin, long lasting, edge-lit LED flat light on the market today, the patent pending PIXI FlatLight luminaire is a lighting fixture that uses the same light-emitting diode (LED) technology found in high definition televisions to provide bright, uniform, energy-efficient light without glare, flicker or hot spots. The completely flat fixtures, at 0.55 inches thick, have an internal driver, allowing them to be flush mounted against any flat surface including ceilings, walls or under the counter.Hands-on demonstrations of both commercial and residential product applications will take place within booth 3918.
PIXI FlatLight luminaires offer homes and commercial 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, 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. The products require very low maintenance, making PIXI the desired lighting fixture for building owners and facility managers, and because the panels stay cool, they reduce HVAC costs.
“We are excited to make our debut at LIGHTFAIR International and demonstrate the unique features, sleek design and innovative technology of our PIXI FlatLight™ Luminaires,” said Richard Myers, Vice President of PIXI Lighting. “The lighting industry continues to experience an explosion in the LED market, and we look forward to demonstrating how our LED edge-lit flat light can bring energy-efficient, brilliant light to commercial and residential spaces.”
LIGHTFAIR International is the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference. Attended by professionals in the architectural, design, engineering, energy and lighting industries, LIGHTFAIR attracts over 23,000 attendees from around the world for three days of presentations, exhibitions and events.
