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.

PreciseLED

PreciseLED is new to ELA. They are located on Long Island.

 

ZENLITE

Zenlite is an in-wall product that goes over the joists and is in line with gypsum. The mudplate is made out of PVC. This is advantageous because the PVC doesn't retain heat. The fixture can be installed with or without the lens in. The lens is laser cut and pre-installed before shipping so on the site, they just need to peel off the protective tape. The LED strip is typically installed beforehand.

Available in 1" and 2" versions.

It costs around $48/ft (DN price).

  

ARC:

The curvable extrusion with a flexible lens. The 15°  radius is the tightest they can go. The curved product is edge-lit (2 LED strips facing each other) with a silicone lens.

Zenlight tile also exists. The lens is poured into place. You can walk or drive on the Zenlight tile fixture.

  

The maximum running length is 100ft.

It costs around $100/ft (DN price).

They also have an asymmetric Zenlite as well.

*the straight and the curve products are using different LED chips and won't be mixed.


DOWNLIGHTS:

The downlights available as trimmed and trimless with IC and Non-IC rated housings, 45° tilt and 360° rotation, and interchangeable lenses.

The Novation is their new 3" downlight/wallwasher . It has one of the shallowest air-tight housing on the market, 18" X 2.44", an interchangeable adjustable downlight and wallwasher lens. The housing has a unique copper piece which acts as a heatsink and therefore allows the housing to be this shallow.

  

*The shallow housing has only 30° tilt adjustment.

*They use CREE LED chip. The LED head is screwed-in and field replaceable (great for changing CCT).

*The trimmed fixture is shower rated.

They do not currently have a trimless option for millwork fixtures but they are currently working on it.

*They do have their own line of drivers but their products work with others as well.

Their wallwasher has an interesting lens design.

It's good to keep in mind, the piece with get really hard and make it difficult for on-site optic adjustment (there is a very tight space to access the clip for adjustments).


DIM TO WARM TAPE:

We also looked at their dim to warm tape. This tape has alternating chips to achieve the desired effect. All of PreciseLED's tapes are a minimum of 90 CRI.


 

UNDER CABINET FIXTURES:

They also have a line of interesting under cabinet fixtures called LUMAMATE.

The system has 90° vertical, 90° horizontal joint connector, motion sensor, on/off switch and dimmer switch all in on.

*The touch dimming, step dimming by tapping worked really smoothly.

They started with the larger size and have evolved to a smaller sized fixture with the same capabilities. The smaller fixture is not yet online or in the catalog but is coming soon.

  • Available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K.
  • Available in 90CRI (standard) and 95CRI.
  • 45° clip and flush clip are available for mounting.

Dalume

Today we were shown a new Dalume product- the Grid-Lyte.

This fixture is comparable to the JLC T-Bar LED fixture. It is less pixelated than the JLC fixture but nodes are still present.

The Grid-Lyte comes in 2 size options: 1" and 2". We were shown the 1" fixture.

  • It has clips on the back of it that mount directly to a T-Bar metal ceiling grid. The J-Box would rest above the ceiling tiles.

  • The fixture comes in CCT options ranging from 1,700K-4,000K and RGBW. 80+ CRI.
