Acuity LED Retrofit Kits Are First on DesignLights QPL
Two Lithonia Lighting LED lighting retrofit kits from Acuity Brands, Inc. are the first to meet the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) minimum requirements for Integrated-Style Retrofit Kits for Linear Panels. The 2RTL2R and 2RTL4R LED relight assemblies are part of the company’s RTLED Relight family of products and are qualified for the DLC’s Lamp-Style Retrofit Kits for Linear Panels 2×2 and 2×4 Troffers categories, respectively.
The DLC Qualified Products List (QPL) includes only high-quality, high-performing commercial LED products. Each of the products listed on the QPL meet the DLC’s minimum performance and other requirements. DLC qualification has helped accelerate market acceptance of LED luminaires as it provides assurance that the product meets stringent criteria for energy efficiency, performance and longevity. It also facilitates many local utility rebate programs, which help defray the cost of lighting upgrades for customers, as they reduce demand on the electrical grid.
The RTLED Relight family combines digital LED lighting and controls technology with a patented high-performance optical design to offer an advanced retrofit solution for general-ambient lighting applications. High-efficacy light engines deliver long life and superior color.
“We are very pleased to be recognized as having the first LED lighting retrofit products to meet the DLC criteria in this category,” said Kurt Vogel, Lithonia Lighting Director of Product and Market Development for Relight. “It’s further validation that Acuity Brands is creating winning solutions for customers to save significant amounts of energy, while improving the appearance and performance of their lighting.
“The ability to take full advantage of high-quality LED lighting with a simple retrofit installation, without disrupting daily operations, is a big win for building owners and occupants alike. We anticipate the recently introduced VTLR Series of LED Relight products will soon be joining this DLC category as well to offer an even broader set of solutions.”
