Lutron to Unveil Latest Lighting and Shading Control Technology to 35,000 Attendees at Greenbuild International Conference
Committed to saving energy, Lutron demonstrates class-leading lighting control solutions to building owners and developers
Coopersburg, PA (November 9, 2012) — Lighting control pioneer Lutron Electronics—known for its invention of the solid-state, electronic dimmer and a longtime supporter of Greenbuild—will be unveiling its latest lighting and shade control technologies in Booth 2101S in the main exhibition hall at Greenbuild International 2012, beginning November 14th in San Francisco.
Going green is more than a catchphrase these days. Now in its 10th year, Greenbuild expects to welcome more than 35,000 industry leaders and experts to its 2012 Conference and Expo.
“At Lutron, we’re committed to sustainable buildings,” said Gerard Darville, director of the Lutron energy business unit, who will be meeting visitors at the booth on Wednesday and Thursday. “This year,” he added, “we’re introducing several new lighting control products that will help building owners to meet energy codes while reducing costs.”
In order to demonstrate exactly how various lighting control products work, the exhibit, for the first time, will house individual areas that replicate commercial lighting control applications, including a classroom, an office and a hotel room. Visitors will be able to walk through the spaces, experiencing the effects of lighting control, automatically controlled shades and other energy-saving solutions that can improve comfort and lower electric bills for commercial buildings.
Below are some of the new products that will be displayed as part of the Lutron exhibit:
• New Lutron Stairwell LED Fixture - The newest addition to the Lutron stairwell fixture family is designed to increase safety while lowering costs. Like previous versions, the LED fixture automatically adjusts light, saving up to 90 percent of electricity. The new fixture features an architectural design and a lamp life of more than 50,000 hours, resulting in lower maintenance costs than comparable fluorescent fixtures.
• New Lutron Sensor Layout and Tuning Service -In addition to manufacturing sensors, Lutron is introducing a new service to help building owners to get the most out of their energy-saving efforts. Through its Layout and Tuning Service, Lutron will provide a detailed sensor layout—for use by the installing contractor— and up to two visits, after installation, to adjust the system to get the best results.
• New Lutron Shading Solution - Lutron has expanded its fabric offering by adding E Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology, produced by Mermet, a leading manufacturer of solar screen fabrics. This new, patented technology improves heat reflection in dark color fabrics while maintaining superior view through exceptional glare control and elegant street-side aesthetics. Mermet representatives will be in the Lutron booth from 10am-noon on Thursday, Nov. 15th, to conduct product demonstrations and explain KOOLBLACK™ Technology.
• New Lutron Hotel Lighting and Temperature Control System - Luxury hotels have long faced the problem of conserving energy while providing guests with comfort and security. Now Lutron has teamed up with Assa Abloy, the parent company of VingCard Elsafe®, to create the perfect solution. Using VingCard’s Orion Energ Management System, Lutron’s lighting control modules will turn lights on and off, adjust the shades and raise or lower the temperature when the room is vacant. The system also provides automatic locking for hotel room doors.
“The marriage of technology and sustainability—which is this year’s Greenbuild theme—has been part of the Lutron philosophy since we were founded more than 50 years ago,” said Darville. “Today, the demand for green construction—whether in new or existing buildings—is huge,” he concluded, pointing out that estimated spending, according to McGraw-Hill, will exceed $130 billion by 2015.
