Clearing the way for widespread adoption of LED lighting, Soraa today launched the lighting industry’s first fixture validation program—Works with Soraa. Lighting fixture manufacturers Tech Lighting, Focal Point, Hevi Lite, and Dreamscape Lighting have joined Soraa to kick off the program.
Incompatibility between LED lamps and fixtures designed for traditional light sources—incandescent, halogen, or fluorescent—is one of the biggest hurdles facing the lighting industry today. The Works with Soraa fixture program is designed to foster strong collaboration between Soraa and fixture manufacturers, so fixture and lamp combinations can be rapidly validated for mechanical, thermal, and electrical compatibility. As a result, the program will facilitate faster time-to-market for new fixtures and lamps. Specifiers can then specify, and customers can purchase and install, these validated combinations with confidence.
