Hip to Be Square? New-Look Rook Wows
Square LED Pendant Delivers More Options for Architects, Designers
Amerlux, an award-winning design-and-manufacture lighting company, announced today its Rook LED pendant family has grown with the addition of a square fixture that will create options for architects and lighting designers.
Amerlux’s Rook 3.5″ Square Pendant is a versatile solution for open ceilings as a surface-mount pendant or a pendant with a remote driver. Amerlux will unveil the new square lighting solution at LightFair 2019 (Booth #5837) in Philadelphia. Special demonstrations will be held during the conference across the street at Le Meridien Philadelphia, located at 1421 Arch Street.
“Amerlux has made a business out of listening to the marketplace” said Amerlux CEO and President Chuck Campagna. “Our new square Rook fixture is based on demand from architects and lighting designers who want another look to go with the reduced energy costs and enhanced beam control that’s already built into this existing LED product line.”
Amerlux products address four important demands from the marketplace:
The striking Rook 3.5″ Square Pendant is warm and welcoming, yet square and modern. Ideal for retail and commercial ambient/task lighting, the fixture offers a range of color temperatures (i.e. 2200K, 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K). It also delivers 83 CRI and 90+ CRI with full gamut LED chips available.
The Rook 3.5″ Square Pendant is offered in 11W, 14W, 16W, 18W and 21W options. The lumen output includes 1,305 lm and 1,732 lm, while CBCP spans from 4,763 to 12,503.
Beam spread options include spot (15 degrees), narrow flood (22 degrees), medium flood (25 degrees), flood (28 degrees), wide flood (45 degrees), very wide flood (60 degrees) and linear spread (60 degrees x 10 degrees) for the fixture’s SD version. In addition, a Satin Ice Lens, which provides maximum source concealment and wide distribution with a visually “hotter” aperture (75 degree spread), is available; a Solite Lens offers maximum efficacy and a visually quieter aperture with 30-degree, 50-degree and 65- degree beam spread options.
Dimming options include TRIAC, ELV (120V/277V) and Lutron Hi-lume H Series/Eco System (120V/277V).
Re-Imagining Hornet HP Downlight
The Rook 3.5″ Square Pendant re-imagines the popular Hornet HP Downlight in a new square pendant form.
The Hornet family of LED downlights is a lighting system with a variety of different options, including square and round trim, beam spreads that range from a very narrow flood to a very wide flood and adjustable accent. Designed for retail, commercial, hotel and residential applications, the Hornet HP family of downlights provides design flexibility, energy efficiency and comfortable lighting together. With the Dim-To-Warm feature, the lights shift to lower kelvin temperatures as you dim them, emulating the familiar effect in incandescent light bulbs.
The Rook 3.5″ Square Pendant pairs perfectly with the Hornet HP Downlights. The 3.5-inch lighting solution produces an exceptional color rendering (95+ CRI), adding ambiance to any space.
