SDA Showcase 2014

Stan Deutsch Associates had their semi-annual showcase with a good showing from their lines. A lot of the fixtures we saw, especially from Design Plan, Solavanti and Inter-lux were previously only available in Europe and other parts of the world. It's exciting to finally be able to specify some products

ALW had a few new things in their booth that we hadn't seen yet. One of them being tunable white LED strips which can go in any of their 2" or larger profiles. They also had a new pendant: Lightplane 3". The LPR3 is available in direct, indirect and bi-directional configurations.

We were introduced to a new manufacturer, Feng Shui Lighting. They provide solutions to backlighting panels with a product called Netlight. Linear strips of LEDs are attached to each other with equal spacing vertically to create a net like surface. The Netlight can either come with a frame or without for installation by others. Because of the spacing, they are able to provide a relatively shallow depth while still providing an evenly lit surface without visible nodes. We suggested the idea of a larger spacing net for installations that have more depth available but are more limited with wattage. They didn't have a solution for that, but it sounds like they would look into it for future applications.

USAI had a nice booth this year showing a lot of their fixtures in typical installations. One highlight of their booth was a new family of low profile housing fixtures. All of the houses are 4" with ceiling thickness included. Right now only downlight versions are available, but they are working on wall wash trims that will use the same housings. They are also offering higher output versions of their LED2.0 family. Another fixture we saw was a revamped sliver fixture. The new Sliver has a low wattage transformer installed and is intended for use with a retro-fit LED lamp. This way because the transformer is already a low wattage, it eliminates the need for a wattage restriction label in order to pass code. The housing was also very small which makes an even better option for retro-fit applications.
