The Newton Family:

The Newton family is their architectural line including varieties of track heads and mon-opoints available in different beam spreads (13°, 24°, 38°, 58°, and 63°). We really liked the Newton slim mono-point and Newton spot recessed looks and the 2 color combo (Black+ silver, Black+Gold, or Silver+Gold) in Newton Flat. (the track system is under process to be UL listed)

Spook:

Another interesting IP67 rated, walk over recessed fixture was the Spook. Being cool and not transmitting heat from the surface, makes this fixture a great option for pools and spas. Also, it works without failure in very low temperatures.

It is recommended for installation in concert and wood constructed surfaces. (for better water drainage and sturdy installation)

10Jan/190

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.
