Dialight DuroSite™ LED High Bay Named Top Money-Saving Product by BUILDINGS Magazine

150W Fixture Recognized for its High-Efficiency and Long Life Operation for Superior Cost Savings

FARMINGDALE, N.J. (June 21st, 2011) - Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), an innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced its DuroSite™ LED High Bay fixture has been named a Top Money-Saving Product for 2011 in the Lighting category by BUILDINGS Magazine and will be included as part of a special feature in the magazine’s June 2011 issue.

Designed for use in both conventional industrial and commercial applications, the Dialight LED High Bay fixture consumes just 150W to replace traditional 400W HID fixtures for a significant energy savings. In addition to operating more than 60 percent more efficiently than typical HID units, the DuroSite product is backed by Dialight’s 5-year peace of mind warranty for guaranteed continuous operation. This long-life reliability saves money by eliminating the need for frequent and costly bulb changes often required for traditional technology. Equipped with Dialight’s patent-pending reflector-based optical design, the High Bay luminaire also makes more efficient use of its 79 lumens per watt with improved directional lighting capabilities to more accurately deliver light exactly where it’s needed, rather than wasting the light upward.

Tens of thousands of Dialight DuroSite LED High Bay units have been installed in various industrial facilities around the country, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy and maintenance costs, as well as improving visibility and safety in warehouses and manufacturing facilities, food processing and cold storage applications. The High Bay product is also available as in SafeSite® Hazardous Location certified models for use in Class I Div 1 and 2, Class II Div 1 and 2 and Class III Div 1 and 2 environments in the oil and gas/petrochemical industry, power generation facilities and offshore and mining operations.

“Our customers have come to expect nothing less than truly exceptional performance from our products, and we are very proud that our High Bay product continues to earn industry accolades for its efficient operation and outstanding design,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “We are honored to be named a Top Pick among this impressive group of candidates.”

Finalists for the BUILDINGS Top Money-Saving Products were chosen based on the money-saving qualities offered to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, productivity, maintenance and more. After reviewing over 125 submissions, the magazine’s editorial staff selected an elite group of 67 products.

“Dialight’s DuroSite High Bay was chosen as a top Money-Saving Product because it provides an economical solution that offers significant cost savings to building management,” says Chris Olson, chief content director, BUILDINGS.
