3G Lighting

Today, we looked at 3G Lighting updated and upcoming products.

LINA Family:

we just recapped on this previously saw fixture. What's unique about their linear line is that they use one housing for all the trimmed, trimless, and grid installation.

Available with flushed and 1" or 2" dropped lens.

Surface, recessed, pendant mountings.

*They have 2 LED strips in the 2" and 3 LED strips in the 3.5" fixture.

Distribiutions are available in Direct and Direct/Indirect.

Wide batwing distribution for 1.5" and 2" fixtures are coming soon.

Average DN price for direct distribution is $50 to $65 per foot.


ZOIE:

Their trim/ trimless Multi-cell downlight, available in single, 2, 4, 8, and 12 multi-cell configurations.

Available in MATT! black and white finishes.

Great for when a quiet ceiling is desired.

Wallwasher is coming soon. We looked at the prototype of the 4 cells and liked its clean cutoff line. It has remodeled housing with butterfly clips for mounting.

 

Available housings for their ZOIE fixtures are: IC rated, NC, and shallow housing.

*All multi-cells come with integral driver and are dimmable, except the single-cell model.

The Single Cell is non-dimmable as an individual but could be dimmed if multiple quantities are put together.

*Quick ship is available for 2, 4, and 8 cells.

Approx. DN pricing is as follows: $160 for 2 cells, $180 for 4 cells, and $250 for 8 cells.


DOWNLIGHTS:

Madison is their well-recognized downlight. In general, downlights come in 30mm (NEW), 50mm (max 2200 delivered lm), and 70mm (4000 up to 5000 delivered lm).

Trims are available in white, black, and custom finishes.

Available configurations are single, X2, X3, X4 and continius run.

The NEW 30mm model delivers 1000lm and available in.3 square and round trimmed and trimless.

The 3.3" fixed 70mm deep cell downlight is their economic model with DN price of $150. It has a remodel housing with quick connect for mounting and accept up to 2 media (Solit lens for wet location).

Available with Shallow, NC, and IC rated housings.

*We noticed a visible halo.

 

The 4.5" model (the largest) has 2 internal screws for 360° rotation and lateral adjustment (twist and lock system).

 

At last, we looked at the NEW 4" wallwasher. the back of the lens is speculated, therefore this not only illuminates the wall but also has lateral distribution.
