Amerlux, one of the world’s leading providers of energy efficient lighting solutions, has been awarded the Architectural Products Magazine’s Production Innovation Award (PIA) for its FINO product, the first wall mounted ultra-shallow asymmetric luminaire for optimal indirect lighting.
According to an article featured on CNW, the PIA award recognizes innovation in the development and refinement of building-related products, ranging from cladding systems to interior finishes.
The judge panel consists of 50 independent industry professionals, highly competent to review the products that are deemed innovative by their peers.
“We are proud to receive this Innovation Award for FINO, one of our latest flexible high performance architectural lighting solutions,” said Amerlux CEO/President Chuck Campagna.
“Using state of the art optics and LED technologies, the ultra-thin FINO is an achievement in the engineering of small-scale LED luminaires.”
FINO is an incredibly thin luminaire capable of delivering crisp comfort of indirect LED lighting in any work environment and does not require recessed lowlighting. It is designed with an ultra-thin depth of 5/8 inches and uses just five watts per foot.
Its unique properties enable it to run seamlessly across the complete length of walls without interfering with studs, which makes it ideal for indirect ambient, wall wash or cove lighting applications in offices, hotel corridors and other similar venues that require clean architectural look.
The carefully engineered snap-in-lens is designed to deliver maximum efficiency and significant light transmission with an integral reflector in a high reflectance white finish. FINO offers a colour-rendering index (CRI) of 80, standard 0-10v dimming, and is available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K correlated colour temperatures (CTT). On top of that, it comes with a 50,000-hours lifespan and an industry high 10-year limited warranty.
FINO can be mounted both individually and in rows using a drawer latching system that provides easy and precise joining of units for straight runs. An LED driver installs easily into walls and is accessible through the fixture for maintenance.
“Building on the success of last year’s program, our third edition of the Product Innovation Awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, Editorial Director for Architectural Products Magazine.
