FAIRFIELD, N.J., March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amerlux CEO/President Chuck Campagna proudly announces that FIATO has won Architectural SSL magazine's 2014 Product Innovation Award in the category of Track Lighting. "Derived from the meaning 'to breathe,' FIATO is designed to breathe and is passively cooled to keep maintenance concerns at a minimum," according to the editors of Architectural SSL. "It's specifically designed to target the 39w CMH lamp and delivers over 2,000 lumens from a tight 10-degree accent optic. FIATO creates a more pleasing white light that helps pop color."
FIATO is a new LED line of high output track and recessed fixtures with focused lumens and intense center beam candlepower to ensure that pleasing white light is delivered precisely on target, bringing out the true color and attention to produce, apparel and other merchandise.
According to the judges, "FIATO is a WOW product and something we really need in retail and other high ceiling applications where we need the narrow beam punch."
The high performance solution for retail, supermarket and commercial accent and display lighting applications, FIATO is available in color temperatures ranging from 2700-4000K, has a color-rendering index (CRI) up to 95, with a long life of 50,000 hours. FIATO produces and delivers up to 2400 lumens of light from a single point LED source but even more impressive is its delivery of more than 32,600 center beam candlepower (CBCP) on target.
"Receiving the Architectural SSL Product Innovation Award for FIATO exemplifies Amerlux's commitment in providing world class, energy-efficient lighting solutions to our customers," said Mr. Campagna. "The combination of our product knowledge, the latest LED technology, and our global manufacturing capability results in a high quality product renowned for extraordinary CBCP and narrow spot optics."
Designed to run cool, without assistance from active cooling devices, FIATO luminaires are offered as track mount or one-, two- or three-light multiple LED fixtures. High output, superior color quality and the Amerlux industry-leading 10-year warranty make FIATO the prime choice for supermarket and retail applications. Offered in 27, 33 and 38 watts for use on 120-277 volt systems, the fixtures are designed with 0- to 90-degree tilt and 360-degree rotation.
