FAIRFIELD, N.J., Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing to make strong achievements in the engineering of small-scale LED luminaires, Amerlux introduces FINO, the world's first ultra shallow asymmetric luminaire that can be wall or ceiling mounted for optimal indirect lighting. Amerlux is an industry leader of task-specific, energy-efficient lighting solutions, an innovator of lighting solutions for retail, supermarket, commercial and hospitality markets and a recent recipient of Five Next Generation Luminaires Awards.
Delivering the comfort of indirect lighting with the light levels to work by without the need of recessed downlighting and capable of being installed and running the complete length of walls, without interfering with the studs, FINO provides outstanding architectural illumination using LED technology. FINO is ideal for indirect ambient, wall wash or cove lighting applications in private offices and hotel corridors. Basically it's perfect for any space where a clean, architectural look is desired.
"Amerlux is committed to providing flexible, high performance architectural lighting solutions for architects, designers and specifiers in both commercial and residential spaces," said Chuck Campagna, CEO and President of Amerlux. "Using state of the art optics and LED technologies, FINO is the very first ultra shallow asymmetric indirect lighting luminaire created in the industry."
FINO is designed with an ultra-thin depth of just 5/8 inches and can install easily in sheet rock, without cutting the studs. Using just five watts per foot, FINO features extruded construction and optics to provide the exact fit and finish for hairline joints, as well as an extruded two-piece, trimless mud frame with gear for a clean, architectural look.
An engineered, snap-in lens delivers maximum efficiency and excellent light transmission with an integral reflector in a high reflectance white finish.
Available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K correlated color temperatures (CCT), FINO offers a color-rendering index (CRI) of 80, standard 0-10v dimming, a 50,000-year life and an industry leading 10-year limited warranty.
Fixtures can be individually or continuous row-mounted using a drawer latching system that provides easy and precise joining of units for straight runs.
An LED driver installs easily into walls and is accessible through the fixture for maintenance.
FINO is UL-, cUL-listed and certified by CSA for US and Canada.
