INDY: L SERIES family, generation 4

The new L series features a low profile housing, a semi-speculate white cone reflector which provides more light laterally. This family is in a midrange category (between Aculux and Juno).

The Indy L series has 2 cone shaped reflectors:

The Regular Parabolic: for a traditional quiet ceiling

The Hyperbolic: for a true silent ceiling with over 20% more lumen/watt, almost 45° visual cut-off.

  • Available in 900lm up to 3000lm.
  • Warm-dim is available as an option
  • The trimless fixture can be fit in a millwork ceiling with a 1.25" to 1.65" thickness.

They presented the 2000lm option and placed it 2ft and 3ft apart from the wall. The fixtures maintained well uniform wall washing.

In Aculux Universal, the adjustable and wallwash lenses are interchangeable. But, with the lensed fixture only the fixed and adjustable lenses can be swapped.

The DN price for 500lm fixture is around $175 and $200 for 2000lm option+trim. The cost for shallow housing is around $100.

Wagner

Wagner is primarily a handrail company that supplies handrail lighting solutions. They do the full fabrication in house.

Today, they showed us the components of their Lumenrail system.

Lumenlinear

We first looked at the actual railings. The railings are made to be as seamless as possible, and the fixtures in the handrails are fully wet listed.

This was the first fixture that we looked at. Matte and transparent lenses are available. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT. 5 beam spreads are available. This fixture is IP65 rated.


Lumenpod

The fixtures in Pod family are constructed to be vandal resistant. This fixture is IP67 rated. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT and 5 different beam spread.

The fixture with less curved form has an asymmetric distribution. It creates a clean line of cut-off on the back side.

The second fixture with more curvy look provides a symmetric distribution.


Bantam

This is a nice walkway fixture. They will sell just the fixture for other applications. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT.

The 10° forward throw in the presented sample is the smallest the can get. It's a great option as a bollard lighting in ground.


  • Wagner will assist with layouts and meeting local code requirements. They are also releasing a design guide to simplify the specification process.
  • The Lights get attached to the rail on site.
  • The average price is $275/sqft for everything.
  • The Integral driver is a new option for rail lighting.

Cooledge

Today we had Cooledge visit the office. They brought samples of both their tile systems and a fabricated tunable white sample.

Tile System

There are 1' x 1' and 2' x 2' tiles. The tiles are constant voltage and cuttable in the field. The lines on the tiles are where they tiles can be cut. The circular marks are where the tiles can be screwed or stapled.

The tiles come in the CCT ranging from 22K-57K and are available in low, medium, and high output.

The tiles also come in dim-to warm and tunable white. The dim-to-warm goes from 35K-22K. The tunable ranges from 27K-57K.


Flush mount

A Flush Mount option is available and is better when a project requires larger use of the product.

Unlike similar products, with the flush mount, maintenance is easier because the fabric can be untucked to reveal the tiles and pushed back in with a spatula tool.


Fabricated Fixtures

Cooledge also has factory ready fabricated fixtures. They come in suspended, recessed, and surface mount options. They have standard sizes but can also accommodate some custom sizes. They have a 4" minimum standard depth. The fabricated fixtures only come in the medium and high output.

There is only 1 fabric option but it is possible to print designs on the fabric. Acoustic options are also available.

The lead time is quicker with the fabricated products but if maintenance needs to be done, a Cooledge installer will have to do it.


*All of these products work with Cooledge dimming.
