Dialight SafeSite® LED High Bay Now Certified for Paint Spray Applications

Rugged 10,000 Lumen LED Fixture Offers Maximum Energy Savings, Superb Visibility and Maintenance-Free Performance for Automotive, Aerospace and Other Paint Booth/Storage Applications

Farmingdale, NJ (August 22nd, 2011) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the global innovation leader in LED lighting technology, announced today that its SafeSite® LED High Bay luminaire has been qualified to the UL-1254 standard for use in paint spray applications. Dialight’s LED high bay fixture is designed specifically to replace conventional fluorescent and HID lighting in paint spray booths, auto body garages, paint mixing and storage facilities and other similar applications.

The LED High Bay for paint spray applications offers exceptional visibility with a CRI greater than 70 in both neutral white and cool white options. Delivering 10,000 lumens at 150W (66 lumens per watt), the fixture reduces energy consumption of traditional fixtures by 50% or more, with worry-free operation for up to a decade of zero-maintenance performance. The product also offers long-life operation with 80 percent lumen maintenance after 60,000 hours of continuous operation.

“Thanks to Dialight’s industry-leading design innovation, our high bay products continue to make their way into an increasingly wide range of applications,” said Roy Burton, Dialight Group Chief Executive. “In this case, the high bay’s low maintenance and quality of light have become attractive features in this niche market.”

The paint spray-certified SafeSite product is designed for easy retrofit from existing fluorescent fixtures with various mounting accessories available to meet current installation requirements, including pendant mount, swivel bracket and ceiling mount. Its low-profile design minimizes the build-up of dirt and dust that can interfere with paint application.
