PEACHTREE CITY, Ga., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooper Lighting, an industry leader committed to delivering innovative products and driving transformational technology in the lighting industry, has introduced an internally developed wall-mount luminaire featuring the industry's first universal "all-in-one" product design to satisfy a myriad of application needs. The Lumark Crosstour™ LED Wall Pack Series offers superior optical performance, a low-profile aesthetic design and easy installation while providing solutions for wall, surface, post (bollard), low-level and inverted installations. Designed to replace up to 175-watt metal halide fixtures with the latest energy-efficient LED technology, the Crosstour can offer up to 90% energy savings compared to equivalent metal halide wall pack products.
The universal "all-in-one" design allows the Crosstour LED Wall Pack Series to easily mount to virtually any location. The series features the industry's first universal back box design, which allows for simple installation to all standard junction boxes without the use of adaptor plates or loose hardware. The unique contractor-friendly installation and maintenance features include an interface hinge that locks the door in place allowing stable handling when making the electrical connection.
Internally developed at Cooper Lighting's LED Innovation Center, the Crosstour's scalable optical design options include three high-performance, LED lumen packages of 10-watts (720 lumens), 20-watts (1360 lumens) and 30-watts (2240 lumens) and a choice of either brilliant white 5000K correlated color temperature (CCT) or a neutral warm 3500K CCT. The Crosstour's superior optical performance results from a patent-pending optimized optical reflector designed to project the light in a forward throw direction, while a full cutoff door provides focused illumination with no uplight and minimal high angle illumination. The resulting higher lumen output allows for greater spacing between fixtures, therefore requiring fewer fixtures.
The Crosstour series includes small (5-3/4" W x 6-3/4" H x 3-5/8" D) and large (6-5/8" W x 8" H x 4" D) housing configurations and features rugged die-cast aluminum construction, a sealed LED optical chamber and impact-resistant tempered glass. Fixtures are offered in Carbon Bronze and Summit White color options.
The luminaires are Dark Sky Friendly, ADA Complaint, UL and cUL Wet Location listed, IP66 rated, and have a projected LED life of 50,000 hours.
Cooper Lighting offers a range of indoor and outdoor LED lighting products and corresponding accessories, all of which are specifically designed to maximize energy and cost savings. For additional information, visit www.cooperlighting.com.
