CREE Introduced Its VG Series Parking Garage Luminaire

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced its VG Series parking garage luminaire, which is designed to deliver optimal, low-glare illumination by eliminating direct view of the LEDs with a revolutionary optical system. The VG Series lowers total cost of ownership and can deliver payback in less than two years (compared with metal halide and based on commercial usage of 24 hours per-day and the national average of $0.11 per kWh electric costs), says the firm.

The new VG Series delivers energy savings up to 73% compared to the metal halide fixtures they replace, while simultaneously delivering exceptional illumination quality, which can help create a safer feeling in garages. The low-glare luminaire features a composite optical system combining a highly efficient internal reflector and a precisely designed prismatic lens. Designed with simplified mounting solutions for seamless installation in most parking garages, the VG Series also delivers up to 10% desirable uplight, reducing the 'cave effect' that is typical with existing LED luminaires and many conventional solutions lighting parking garages today.

"The VG Series was specifically designed for the unique challenges presented by parking garages," says Greg Merritt, VP, lighting at Cree. "With low initial cost and virtually no maintenance expenses, the VG Series is the ideal choice to transform any garage from a poorly illuminated and uninviting space, to a well-lit garage with aesthetically pleasing lighting — all backed by a 10-year limited warranty."
