Soraa Moves Beyond Lamps by Creating the Industry’s First Ambient LED Luminaires with Glare Free, Uniform and High Quality Light
Soraa, the world leader in GaN on GaN™ LED technology, today announced the expansion of its product portfolio with two new exquisitely designed, minimalist ambient LED luminaire series—the Gable and Barrel—perfect for office, healthcare and retail applications. By coupling the company’s award winning optical design expertise with its Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VP₃) LED technology, Soraa has redefined human centric lighting with its two new specification grade fixtures families that have outstanding lens uniformity, color rendering (CRI > 90) capabilities and DLC compliant efficacies.
“By edge lighting our own highly engineered, injection molded optical light guides with Soraa’s full visible spectrum LEDs, we’ve created glare free luminaires that will raise the bar for ambient lighting. Our new fixtures have unparalleled lens uniformity and deliver light with fluorescent excitation needed to discern shades of white and render colors perfectly,” said Ann Reo, Senior Vice President of Product Development at Soraa. “Our first foray into the fixture market will finally give designers the ability to heighten visual clarity, while increasing energy efficiency, when lighting large spaces.”
At only 3” in depth, the perfectly luminous Soraa Barrel series has a curved arch form and is available in 2’x2’ and 1’x4’ dimensions. The eloquently designed, extruded aluminum Knife Edge frame provides thermal management and visual separation between frame and lens. Plus, the Knife Edge detail increases depth perception of the arch while maintaining the 3” housing depth. The luminaire is ideal for shallow ceiling plenums where HVAC and structural interferences are an issue. Designed for lay-in and gypsum board ceilings, the Soraa Barrel series delivers up to 3200 lumens and standard dimming driver options include 0-10V, Lutron and EldoLED.
Redefining traditional ambient luminaire design, the Soraa Gable series appears frameless, giving it an incredibly clean, contemporary aesthetic in 2’x2’ and 1’x4’ dimensions. Beautifully luminous, two uniform angled lenses gable up into a center spine element that also glows. All mechanical details are thoughtfully concealed on the luminaire and is designed for lay-in and gypsum board ceilings. The Soraa Gable series delivers up to 3200 lumens and standard dimming driver options include 0-10V, Lutron and EldoLED.
The new Soraa Gable and Barrel series will be available in 3000K, 3500K and 4000K CCT and on display at Soraa’s Booth (#2631) at LIGHTFAIR International at the San Diego Convention Center from April 26-28, 2016. For more information about Soraa’s LED products, visit www.soraa.com.
