Motolux

Forma Lighting is an international company with offices throughout the world. 90% of the manufacturing occurs in China with the other 10% occuring in Milan. Typically these fixtures have been specified in car dealerships, retailers, hotels, and atrium spaces, where the program requires flexibility in product lighting or high ceilings where fixtures are difficult to reach.  The dedicated LED fixtures use Citizen modules. We saw a few of their products during their visit to our office.

 Motolux is a division of Forma Lighting that specializes in remote controlled motorized track heads. The track heads offer pan, tilt and rotating customization and can be modified using the remote controller or phone app. The pair mesh allows for up to 100 fixtures to be controlled together. Each fixture has a pairing receiver that is activated by pointing the laser from the remote controller. In the app, each fixture has an address provided by the manufacturer. The specifications are detailed like typical fixtures; however coordination with the manufacture is needed to confirm location and addressing of fixtures.

Some of their best selling products are the fully motorized track heads with lamp by other, coming in under $200 DN with a $40 remote control sold seperately. The MotoZero is one of their more attractive dedicated LED fixtures coming in at about $520 DN. They also offer recessed multi-head gimbals that are fully motorized as well. In the near future, we will be seeing adjustable motorized beam spreads ranging from 8° to 80°; as well as in ground fixtures.

G Lighting

G Lighting is a company based out of Missouri. They specialize in LED fixtures featuring static white, color tuning, and tunable white technology. They have a wide range of standard products that are mostly made with acrylic, however, they are open to customization.

The Orbis is a circular ring pendant fixture that has a unique profile from what we see from other manufacturers with a portion of the inner lit lens sticking below the outer band.

Another unique thing we discovered about G Lighting, is that because they have their own facilities where they manufacture everything themselves, they sometimes do renovation and replication projects. They have a series of traditional fixtures they offer, but can also do replications from scratch.

Liteline

Today Litelines came to visit our office to show us some of their new and updated product lines.  They are a family owned and operated company based out of Toronto.  Their focus is on interior lighting.  Providing multiple recessed down lights, cove lights, step lights, track and under cabinet lighting options.

The Slim Series is a low budget recessed downlight product line they offer.  All recessed downlights they provide are canless.  Instead they have a large plate with an attachable driver, making an easier installation process on site. The Slim series include Slim Classic, Pro, Indirect and Luna.

The Slim Indirect can dim to warm, dimming from 2000K - 3000K.  One question we had was at what angle someone would be able to see the nodes, which are slightly visible on the side of the curve at.  This would be helpful if we were to spec the product.

The Slim Luna is a new, cheaper alternative to their most popular series, Sigma.   Adjustable recessed downlight with a 45 degree beam spread.  They do not provide a Solite lens as of now, but it is in the works.  It costs around $40-50 per fixture.

All their standard product has a 120V driver with an ELV dimmer that can dim down to 5-10%.

The Forum LED Panel light has two dip switch on the driver allowing user selectable 3000 K, 3500 K or 4000 K color temperature, site selectable watt and output. It sits flush within the frame, and is provided at a 110 degree beam spread, a 0-10V dimmer, 85 CRI and it can dim down to 10%.  2' x 2' costs around $65 and 2' x 4' costs around $85.

They also offer a zoom series track fixture, adjustable from 18 degree beam spread to 50 degree beam spread.  It comes in 10W, 20W, 30W, and 40W.  It is also dimmable to 10% as well.  There are other track head series as well, with a nice set of accessories.
