PMC Lighting

PMC Lighting is a manufacturer based in Rhode Island. They pride themselves as being a custom manufacturer. They have partnered with Lumenetix to provide tuneable Aura modules in both their recessed downlights as well as most of their other fixtures including linear and troffers. The modules allow you to dim the fixtures, change the color, and the hue and saturation. There is an app that lets you group fixtures and customize them. You can also tie it into a control system using DMX.

The ArcX is family of curved linear fixtures that come in standard or custom pieces. The standard shapes are able to be connected together to form custom patterns and are available as a quick ship program. Radii larger than 6', they are able to incorporate the Lumenetix Aura modules.

All of the fixtures that PMC offers can come in any RAL finish at no added cost.

Barn Light

O'Blaney Rinker brought Barn Light to our office so we could take a closer look at what they are able to do. They are a Florida based company and offer a 2-3 week lead time for most of their fixtures. They manufacture everything themselves, so they are able to modify in-house and provide answers quickly. Barnlight offers fixtures in porcelain, aluminium, brass and copper with many standard finishes.

Barnlight now offers most of their fixtures with dedicated LED as well as their standard incandescent versions. Currently they are using CREE modules, however, they are working on developing a proprietary module with optics and warm-dim technology.

Delta Light Showroom

We had the pleasure of visiting the Delta Light showroom near Madison Square Park. Delta Light is a Belgium company, with warehouse for quick-ship products located in Florida. They recently restructured the company which resulted in about a 30% price reduction across all products without compromising on quality. All of their LED products are dimmable. Typically they suggest 0-10V but their drivers can accommodate other protocols as well. Most of the LED diodes they use are Bridgelux for the architectural fixtures while Cree is typically installed in the more decorative luminaries that do not require dedicated optics. The lumianires are within two McAdams ellipse and fall within a client specified quadrant. The lead times for most products are 4-6 weeks and any special modifications are will probably require 10-12 weeks lead time.

The SuperNova is a luminous surface that can be suspended, semi-recessed, or fully recessed. It is available in a variety of different shapes and sizes.

The Spy series are all of the cylindrical downlights that are available as track heads,surface, or recess mounted. The MidiSpy luminaire (1.75in aperature) is able to be installed as a recessed fixture but has an added layer of flexiblity that allows it to be pulled down and adjusted 90 degrees and rotated 360 degrees. They offer many different optics that are field changable

 

The Rodi Series also offers flexibility. It is a recessed adjustable down light can rotate and swivel within a dish.

 

 

The Super-Oh lumianire family is a suspended ring of light that is availble in many sizes. The light source shown in the image is small LED down lights but can also use Edison lamps.

They have a variety of exterior and interior sconces.

Apogee Lighting

Apogee Architectural Lighting stopped by our office to show us their product lines. Their website does not show the complete story of what they offer and what they are able to do.

The first fixture family we looked at was the Lightscape family. The Lightscapes are complete luminaires that incorporate Newmat material at the face of the fixtures with LEDs backlighting it. There are several standard shapes, however where they stand out is the custom shapes they are able to do. Apogee populates their own LED boards so they are able to get the custom shapes with even illumination. 16'x8' is the largest single fixture they are able to make. There is also a sound dampening version that incorporates sound absorbing material inside the fixtures.

Apogee is also able to provide LED boards to backlight Newmat ceilings. They have the ability to use optics on each of the LED nodes allowing them to achieve a 1" depth with even illumination. An important thing to consider is that the deeper the backlight depth, the lower the cost is.

Apogee has a linear fixture that is completely encapsulated for a diffuse line of light. The standard colors range from 22-4K. The light strips are stocked and made locally.

They also have a clear encapsulated linear strip that is 120V, ELV dimmable and exterior rated. It is available up to 300' per power connection and is cuttable in 4" increments. The tape light can also be provided with a diffuser.

It was great getting a better look at what Apogee is able to do. Since they are a local manufacturer, they are able to ship quickly and provide help on-site if any issues arise.

Kreon

Kreon came by our office to present the Holon, Aplis, and Cana luminaire famies. The Holon is a cylindrical luminaire that can be recessed or surface mounted to the ceiling. It has an adjacent driver that does not need a junction box to be powered but can be provide with an IC rated casing if necessary. The Holon provides (2) sizes for their luminaires the 80(3in) series and the 40(1.5in) series. The different sizes have the same proportions which enables a uniform aesthetic.

The Aplis  The 80 series contains a XICATO LED module with 90+ CRI and delivers between 900 lumens to 3000 lumens. The 40 series contains a CREE module with 95+ CRI and can deliver between 200 lumens (at 2 watts) to 500 lumens (at 7 watts). The Aplis is the downlight family that is available in (4) sizes for their luminaires  and is available in round or square apertures.  The Aplis 40 (1.5 inch aperture) and Aplis 80 (3 inch aperture)  have the option for a wall wash optic with the potential to provide 1x2 luminaire spacing.

Finally the Cana family is a new line they are releasing. It is available in the 40, 80, or 120 sizes.The Cana is a linear channel that can be recessed, surface, or pendent mounted. Cana can be used in conjunction with the Holon, Aplis, or Ligna (linear light)  luminaires. There is no field adjustability everything is fully customized during shop drawings. All of these products are available in black or white but can provide any RAL color at an extra cost.

Arcluce

Arcluce is an Italian company based in Milan where they manufacture all of their products. They are now bringing some of their product lines into the US market through their partner at USALightings. Most of their fixtures are still in the process of being certified but should be available soon.

Krio LED is a recessed rectilinear steplight with a flush glass lens.

Napo is a drop lens recessed steplight that we looked at. It has a nice quality to it and would be a good option as a marker light as it does not produce a lot of useable light.

Lunio is a post-top fixture that has a mushroom shape with good glare control.

Lunio 7 is another version of the Lunio post-top fixture that is intended for road applications because of the design of the mounting that allows for a further distribution.

Deudieci is an exterior adjustable floodlight that is available in two sizes. The largest is available with 46watts at 5000 lumens.

The Tito 25 is a 2watt flood light that is IP68 rated and can be installed in water features up to 3ft in depth. There are various beam spreads available including an elliptical optic.

Ellis 2 is the larger version of two elliptically shaped sconces that can be up, down or up and down distributions.

Tegan Lighting

Tegan Lighting has officially released their exterior cable mounted light system that we first got a look at during the SDA showcase last fall. The suspension power cable can be run in lengths up to 110' using 24VDC.

Each light point can be offered as a direct component or with a 1' pendant mount. The great thing about the system is the flexibility it offers. Each light point mounts to the cable where you locate it and connects to the power via sharp pins. The cable is self-healing so you can move the lights later on and it retains its IP67 listing.

They offer multiple standard options in terms of shades and accessories that can be combined in various arrangments. Tegan can also modify some of their shades as well including using colored glass for their shades with certain order quantities. Since the fixtures are designed for exterior applications, their woven shades they offer are IP67 listed as well.

Dado Lighting

Dado stopped by our office to offer a refresher in what they are able to do with their fixtures in terms of custom designs. They pride themselves on being able to accommodate any angles. To ensure the installations are exact, they design and manufacture the connection pieces that allow them to have varied angles and not rely on the contractor to line up the fixtures. Everything is designed in pieces so that the contractor does not have to touch the LEDs and reduces errors in the field.

One thing we discovered they can do is to provide white LEDs on one side and RGB on the other to operate with two circuits.

The SimpleLine is their standard fixture line that is the thickness of drywall and gets mudded in for a seamless appearance.

The HardLine is an extruded fixture that lets you install the fixture in applications with wood and stone.

Dado also has the capability of printing images and patterns on their lenses. This would be a great option for incorporating room numbers into the design.

We know Dado and like to use their CabinetLine fixtures for millwork applications, but it is alway good to see examples of how they use their other lines as well.
