New GE Lumination™ BL Series LED Luminaires Work with USG Logix™ and Other Integrated Ceiling Systems15:11 EST Thursday, March 07, 2013 EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (Business Wire) -- Today there is a renaissance occurring in the commercial ceiling space where continuous or ‘monolithic' designs are injecting new energy into traditionally uninspired areas. Engineered to fit tomorrow's integrated ceiling systems, GE's new Lumination™ BL Series LED Luminaires help free architects and lighting professionals from the constraints of traditional t-grid ceiling designs. New GE Lumination(TM) BL Series LED Luminaires work with most integrated ceiling systems to help architects create more inspired layouts in offices and other commercial spaces. (Photo: General Electric) Lumination BL Series LED Luminaires were designed and tested specifically for the Logix™ Ceiling System from USG and are compatible with most other integrated ceiling systems in the marketplace today. This series gives designers the freedom to create ceilings with a clean, finished appearance that still retain the functionality of a T-grid system for standard maintenance of HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems. A product of GE ecomagination℠, Lumination BL Series LED Luminaires offer up to 39-percent improved energy efficiency opposed to traditional fluorescent lighting. They are available in 4 and 5 foot lengths measuring 4 or 6 inches wide, and come prepared with adaptable mounting brackets for easy compatibility with different integrated ceiling systems. Delivering bright, highly uniform light while minimizing shadow, GE's ‘instant on' and dimmable luminaires also integrate easily with lighting control systems. The luminaires' advanced thermal management system, meanwhile, supports reliable performance and long life—up to four times longer than fluorescent options. As well, multiple lumen packages and distributions for glare control are available.
