At the NFMT Show - Lithonia RT8

Day 2 @NFMT_conference
GreenTech Expo Area booth 2565

Lithonia will drop off a RT8 and an RT5 fixture for folks to check out. RT8 Volumetric Recessed Lighting (RT8S and RT8B) are designed for applications that require the extremely energy efficient delivery of comfortable volumetric light from a lay-in fixture that is appealing and shallow in depth and where room-side ballast access is required. Ideal for offices, schools, hospitals and numerous other commercial applications.

The Two-lamp RT5™ luminaire provides 33% energy savings when compared to a common three-lamp T8 system. Low profile 3-1/8” depth makes the RT5™ fixture ideal for applications where plenum height is a factor. The two-piece refractor system uses the combination of diffusing optical film and precisely extruded prisms to efficiently diffuse light.

Stop by and check them out!

2012 NFMT Baltimore countdown continues!

The NFMT starts tomorrow. Be sure to stop by our booth in the "GreenTech Expo Area" - our booth #2565 - and see Lutron's Radio Powr Savr a Wireless Occupancy Sensor. Go green with Radio Powr Savr. Wasted lighting can account for a majority of a building’s total energy usage. And with many building spaces remaining unoccupied between 40% and 70% of the day, lights left on are a real energy drain. Lutron wireless occupancy/vacancy sensors automate the switching and dimming of those lights, saving energy and money. Jump to their website to learn more and see it in our booth at the show!

2012 NFMT Baltimore

I can't believe the National Facilities Management & Technology Show is next week already. I think we are set -- our folks are putting the last minute touches on the booth. Visit us in the GreenTech Expo Area, booth #2565 and see the latest and greatest from MaxLite.

We'll have their 2x2 Architect LED Flat Panel commercial fixture - a "Lighting for Tomorrow" Award Winning Product. A high performance LED flat panel designed for installation in drop ceilings; typically used to replace standard 2x2 and 2x4 fluorescent fixtures. The profile is slim, only 3 inches deep including the junction box, so the fixture is ideal for low depth ceiling cavities.

A Special Order version of the LED Flat Panels can be purchased for Hospital and Health Facility MRI rooms. These panels are manufactured from materials which are completely non-interfering. Download their product spec pdf from our website:

2012 NFMT Expo

We're exhibiting at the National Facilities Management and Technology Show!
Visit us in the GreenTech Expo Area, booth #2565

In 2012, NFMT will be the biggest gathering of building owners, facility managers, maintenance engineers, sustainability directors, heads of facility operations and management, and other facilities management professionals in the country. It’s a dynamic, interactive educational and networking experience that delivers revolutionary ideas and career-boosting inspiration. You’ll rethink your approach to facilities management, connect with like-minded colleagues, hear from industry visionaries, and discover new tools to make your job more satisfying and productive than ever before. Mark March 13-15 2012 on your calendar!

To entice you to visit us, I thought I'd post some of the neat fixtures we'll have at our booth. One is the Sportlite GR52 (Sportlite is a Lightolier brand) LED Garage Fixture Series. A good looking, highly efficient and reliable LED luminaire —Keeping it simple with properly placed high quality LED’s, superior optics, low drive current, a substantial heat sink.

And a little forward thinking: The Sportlite modular LED emitter panel allows for replacement of a ¼ section in the event of a premature LED failure. Each LED section can be replaced from the low voltage side of the fixture. There is no need to access the high voltage section. As LED technology becomes more efficient the entire emitter panel can be updated.

The Sportlite thermal management system keeps LED junction temperatures well below specified maximums in all applications. And the new surface mounting system allows you to remove the fixture without disassembly.

Pretty neat! I'll put the spec sheet pdf on our website - pick it up here:
