Cooper Lighting LED products honored in architectural products Product Innovation Awards

Cooper Lighting announced that three of its LED architectural products have been recognized for ingenuity in Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards (PIA) competition. For the second consecutive year, Cooper Lighting has the most product awards in the lighting/electrical category. This year's LED products include the IRiS P3LED Directional Series, io Lili Gen II Recessed Indirect Luminaires, and the Lumiere Eon Bollards. Cooper Lighting has received a total of nine company awards since the competition's inception last year. The Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards (PIA) determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products in 14 major product categories. The second annual competition was judged by a group of 50 independent experts in their field. "We are once again honored that our LED products are being recognized for innovation by top industry professionals," said Cooper Lighting President Mark Eubanks. "These awards validate our commitment to providing industry-leading solutions, which specifiers and customers can rely on." Developed for demanding commercial and residential applications, the IRiS P3LED 3-inch aperture LED recessed series combines the flexibility of interchangeable optics with energy savings, long life, and the sustainability of LED. The P3LED luminaire's unique design allows the light distribution to be modified during construction, or even years later, by changing out the optical elements (trims), which are available in downlight, accent, wall wash, and lens solutions. The series is currently available in 3000K correlated color temperature (CCT), 85 color rendering index (CRI) typical, and is designed to last with a five year, 50,000- hour warranty. Designed to replace fluorescent 2' x 2' alternatives for general lighting applications, the io Lili Gen II family consists of two new patent pending light engines. These light engines combine state-of-the-art styling, superior thermal management, and the optical control required to indirectly illuminate a beautifully contoured reflector. Multiple design awards have validated that the Lili Gen II Series is a style statement that delivers code required illumination levels without the excessive brightness seen with other LED troffers. Lili is perfect for healthcare environments where discomfort glare is unwanted by patients but a 50,000-hour sustainable lighting solution is needed. Lili is also perfect for offices and conference rooms where energy-efficient lighting solutions are desired but reflections on computer screens and handheld electronic devices are not. The sleek family of Lumiere LED Eon Bollards includes the single head Eon 303-B1 and the 303-B2 with two opposing heads. These LED bollards' outstanding optical performance originates from the patented AccuLED Optics™ and results in spacings up to 24 feet apart in some configurations. The patented Lumiere LumaLevel™ leveling system provides quick installation, easy adjustment, secure mounting, and protection from vibration. Cooper Lighting continues to make significant investments to empower its customers with the innovations, technology, and resources needed to meet the challenges of the future. The company delivers a wide range of innovative and reliable lighting, LED, and controls solutions, all specifically designed to maximize performance, energy efficiency and cost savings.
