by Brianna Crandall — February 14, 2018 — Lighting innovator Litetronics recently introduced its patented LED Volumetric Retrofit line of easy-to-install, architecturally inspired systems that can upgrade almost any fluorescent troffer to energy-saving light-emitting diode (LED) technology in minutes.
Offered for 2’x2’ and 2’x4’ troffers drawing 29 and 39 watts respectively, Litetronics’ DLC premium-listed LED Volumetric Retrofits deliver 125 lumens per watt (LPW) of evenly distributed, low-glare illumination suitable for a range of professional lighting applications, from hospitality and healthcare settings to offices, warehouses, retail establishments, schools and more.
Designed with a unique tab/cam system to easily fit all standard T-bar grid ceilings, the fixtures’ narrow 3.15” profile enables the two-piece system to fit neatly inside the troffer, avoiding the need to remove the troffer or otherwise expose the ceiling plenum during installation.
During assembly, the lamp is hung from the one-piece metal frame in a single step that frees the installer’s hands for easy wiring, and then swings easily into final position. The Retrofit’s durable frosted plastic diffuser basket is designed to adeptly protect from dust, dirt, and bugs. If needed, it can be snapped in and out by hand, and features a smooth inner surface that wipes clean, enhancing ease of maintenance.
Offering an attractive 100,000-hour life and 10-year warranty, Litetronics’ LED retrofit lights feature 0-10V dimming and are available in 3500K, 4000K, and 5000K versions. Suitable for damp locations, they’re also daylight- and occupancy sensor-compatible to help drive even greater energy savings and return on investment (ROI), notes the company.
