Kichler Lighting introduced a new line of LED landscape lighting at this summer’s International Lighting Market and this new line, known as Radiax, definitely generated a lot of interest among industry professionals.
Kichler’s Radiax LED landscape technology has the greatest lumens per watt in the industry; its design utilizes innovative optics that increases light output while consuming fewer watts. This new technology drives more output from their LED chips creating a more focused light at a cooler temperature. While the chips themselves run cooler, this does not affect the lights color.
The Radiax, a Kichler exclusive design, controls the color rendering and offers their lights in three different Kelvins. The new Radiax design takes a traditional 75watt PAR 30 fixture that costs about $40 to power a year and drops the cost output to $11.53 a year with this novel lighting technology – this cost comparison is focusing on energy alone. According to kichler.com, lumens are an enhanced indication of a light’s brightness.
“..At Kichler, we’ve engineered a solution to get the most lumens with the least amount of wattage. Our Radiax TM optic drives increased output from our LED chips, creating more focused light at a cooler operating temperature.”
Kichler’s Radiax truly focuses on how the light makes consumers feel as well as the type environment they want.
