by Brianna Crandall — December 25, 2017 — Tech Lighting, a provider of sophisticated, modern design combined with the latest advancements in lighting technology, is introducing the Entra LED adjustable recessed downlight as part of its ELEMENT architectural downlights line.
According to Josh Weiss, general manager of Tech Lighting Architectural Products:
The ELEMENT Entra 3-inch LED adjustable downlight offers a cost-effective solution for residential or commercial use without compromising quality. For new construction or remodel applications, Entra’s custom engineered for high performance and reliability. It’s also easy to configure, with a complete feature set that also offers flexibility.
Now shipping, the new ELEMENT Entra features hot-aiming, with a 0-30° tilt and 359° rotation. It’s 90+ CRI, ENERGY STAR-certified, and is registered for California Title 24 compliance. Available in four color temperatures — 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, or 4000K — it also accepts two optional trim-mounted lenses (purchased separately).
Entra comes in either round or square apertures with flanged or flangeless die-cast metal trims (finished in either a silver or field-paintable white). All housings include a mudplate for flangeless installation. Importantly, the Entra recessed adjustable downlight has a durable powder coat matte black inner housing finish for a quiet ceiling.
Simplified ordering process
Entra’s ordering process has been made to simplify specification and purchasing. The adjustable model is priced as a fixed downlight would be, therefore eliminating the need for two separate housings and two different prices.
The new construction version is offered in a single, compact Airtight IC-rated housing (12.3” long, 8.8” wide and 5.4” high), and all new construction housings ship with a universal 120-277V input driver compatible with Triac, ELV and 0-10V dimming. Entra new construction and remodel housings ship with 20°, 40° and 65° optics and a plaster plate for flangeless installations.
With “white glove” customer service support, Entra typically ships within 24 hours, says the company.
