WIMAUMA, Fla., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Eclectic-ware offers superior kitchen cabinet and display LED lighting from Hera Lighting. Since 2001, the Tampa Bay-area company has supplied stunningly bright halogen, fluorescent, and LED lighting from one of the World's top manufacturers of cabinet and display lighting.
"Hera Lighting is not just something you find stocked on the shelves of local retail stores. But when you are in those stores, many of their shelf displays feature Hera LED and fluorescent lights," says John Wagonis, owner and operator of Eclectic-ware. "When you are in line watching your sub sandwich being made or picking out makeup from a well lit pharmacy store shelf, some of America's top retailers use Hera Lighting for their own display purposes."
Hera Lighting produces the following cabinetry, furniture, and display lights:
- Linear LED lighting
- Spotlight LED lights
- Specialty application LED lights
- Miniature Fluorescent linear lighting
Hera Lighting started their business with high quality German Made halogen under cabinet lighting. In the late 1990s, they expanded greatly on that, offering light systems to go beyond the kitchen. Dining room hutches, bedroom furniture, and entertainment centers had options for miniature furniture lighting. Some of their light designs became decorative centerpieces themselves. With advancing technology, Hera engineers now create High Output LED lights that use a fraction of the power that halogen did.
LED spotlights are similar in diameter to their halogen predecessors. Most halogen lights were 20 watt, yet ranged from 10 to 50 watt. With LED, a 3 watt LED light is near equal to the light output of a 20 watt halogen. If you have 30 lights in your boat or kitchen, do the math: 600 watts of energy used with halogen, 90 watts with LED - for the same amount of light! Each hour!
Most Hera LED lights are low voltage systems; they work from LED power drivers. And they are a "light system." Here's where the fun begins in your design, which Eclectic-ware is fully versed in helping you with. A lighting system, which Hera is one of the pioneers of, is not just a light you screw on the wall and plug in. It is a series of lights, going from cabinet to cabinet, or across drop down ceiling partitions, or even across shelf displays 30 or more feet long. A lighting system allows you to select various lengths of lights, or many of the same length, and connect them together end to end or spaced apart and going around corners. The same is true of spotlight LEDs; you plan your spacing on them for more or less light across your cabinet banks. You can also set up zones where one area is lit, while another is off until needed. The light level can be controlled by the use of optional dimming accessories. So when you have need of two spotlights over your sink area, then 3 feet of continuous light to your left, four feet to your right, a corner to turn, and six more feet, you can have your "lighting system" set up the way you need it. Control it all together, or set up zones so you do not use unnecessary light when not needed.
Eclectic-ware has assisted many customers with light system layouts, both DIY homeowners and commercial layouts. "We can help with the best lighting for your project needs." Hera has some excellent miniature fluorescent lighting systems that have been around since the 1990s. "We actually have customers purchasing replacement bulbs for their lights that they tell us they put in 20 years ago," says Wagonis. The Hera SlimLite T4 and T5 size lights come in various lengths and operate from 120 volt household current. The SlimLites can connect end to end to make longer runs of light, or space them apart with various size connecting cables to go up and down or around corners.
The new ELite-LED is a nice upgrade to the SlimLite XL T5 lights. Looks pretty much the same, lower power consumption, no bulbs to change and a 50,000 hour rated lifetime.
You may have seen some of Hera's specialty LED lighting on an overnight hotel stay or when selecting some jewelry. Yes, a flexible arm 1 watt LED reading light for your bed is one of theirs, and very common in Holiday Inns. Adjustable display lights for retailers to show off jewelry display cases and wall shelves are some of their others. Any use in the home? Absolutely! Have you ever seen lights pointing upward from a fireplace mantel or those to display a painting?
Wagonis concludes: "Homeowners, boat owners, commercial contractors, everyone is welcome to purchase lighting and other specialty products from Eclectic-ware. We offer products individually with no minimums, and for those huge applications, we can offer discounts on volume purchases."
