London, UK (November 10th, 2011) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, is proud to announce another industry award for its DuroSite LED High Bay, this time for LUX magazine’s Industrial Retrofit of the Year. The award was collected by customer Paul Cope, Managing Director of March Foods, at the first annual LUX Live trade show.

The winning installation is a 6,500 sq metre warehouse facility in Cambridgeshire where the 150W Dialight LED High Bays paired with occupancy sensors replaced 84 450W high pressure sodium fittings, resulting in more than 70% energy savings, while reducing the amount of CO2 emissions by 100 tonnes per annum. In addition to the energy savings and environmental benefits, March Foods now enjoys maintenance free lighting and no longer requires regular use of a cherry picker to replace lights.

Dialight Launches New DuroSite® LED Area Light for Industrial Task and Area Lighting


70W Fixture Replaces up to 250W HID for Maximum Energy Savings and Long-Life Durability with High Efficacy of 79 Lumens per Watt

Farmingdale, NJ (November 3rd, 2011) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today unveiled its new DuroSite® LED Area Light, the newest addition to its class-leading line up of LED industrial lighting solutions.

Leveraging the same outstanding energy efficiency and durability as the recently-launched SafeSite® Class I Div 2 certified area light, the DuroSite LED Area Light delivers 79 lumens per Watt to effectively replace up to a 250W HID unit slashing energy consumption by nearly 70 percent.

“Our SafeSite certified product has quickly become a favorite among customers in the chemicals and oil & gas industries for its low power consumption and zero maintenance needs,” said Roy Burton, Dialight Group Chief Executive. “This new UL1598 version offers that same highly efficient and reliable operation for general applications and reinforces Dialight’s position as the leading source for industrial LED lighting solutions.”

Available in either 180-degree forward throw or 360-degree circular optical pattern, the LED Area Light is ideal for interior or exterior general area illumination and task lighting for industrial applications, including production areas, warehouses, loading docks and building exteriors. Flexible mounting options include direct conduit, stanchion and wall mount, as well as a swing bracket wall mount that allows for precise light placement directly where it is needed most.

The DuroSite LED Area Light offers superb visibility with superior color rendering compared to traditional high-pressure sodium and mercury vapor fixtures, offering a CRI greater than 70 in either cool white or neutral white CCT. The unit delivers optimum performance at operating temperatures ranging from -40°F to +149°F with instant on to eliminate the warm-up common with traditional fixtures. A low temperature output also ensures minimal impact on ambient air temperature/HVAC load for interior applications to support overall energy-efficient operations.

The UL1598/A IP66 and NEMA 4X certified fixture features Dialight’s solid-state technology, signature rugged polycarbonate lens and polyester/epoxy powder coated aluminum housing for exceptional durability and shock/vibration resistance. Backed by Dialight’s 5-year full-performance warranty, the fixture can deliver up to a decade of maintenance-free performance.
