YLighting Launches Award-Winning Architectural Lighting System

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — YLighting, the largest online retailer for modern lighting, announces the launch of an award-winning architectural lighting system, TECH Lighting ELEMENT. ELEMENT is a line of fully adjustable and lockable recessed architectural downlights designed for high performance and precision control. The line is available in 3” and 6” sizes and energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED), compact fluorescent (CFL), halogen and high intensity discharge (HID) lamping options. Element is exclusively available online at YLighting.

“We are very pleased to add TECH Lighting’s ELEMENT to our collection,” said Sean Callahan, CEO of YLighting. “What makes this recessed lighting system so appealing is that it combines high performance, energy efficiency and great design that is relevant for both residential and commercial applications. Beyond the clean aesthetics, it meets the flexible control and strict performance needs of even the most discerning designers and trade professionals.”

ELEMENT offers a variety of unique features which combine to offer one of the most versatile recessed lighting systems available. Options and features include:     3” and 6” trims and housings.     A range of trim options, including trims in square and round shapes; flanged and flangeless; open, lensed and shower fixtures and exceptionally small, die cast trim in four standard finishes.     Multiple lamping options including LED, CFL, halogen and HID.     Housing-mounted optics that reduce glare while achieving maximum light output.     Precision control over light output using a hot aiming system, locking lens orientation and electronic or dual-tap toroidal transformer options. The low-voltage MR16 based platform option offers a whiter, brighter light with a wide selection of wattage and beam spread choices.     Designed for ease of installation with features such as a no-fill collar which prevents problems caused by joint compound entering the flangeless trim opening. Additionally, a crack-resistant plaster plate installs after the ceiling to prevent cracking and assures clean integration by unifying the plate, ceiling, and housing. Integral gun sights for positioning with laser levels ensure consistent alignment when installed.

The TECH Lighting ELEMENT 3″ LED Downlight was recognized as “best in category” for Downlights, Wallwasher, and Accent Lights at LIGHTFAIR International 2010. “ELEMENT is recognized as a category leader by the discerning architectural and commercial lighting community,” said Callahan. “Not only does it perform well, but TECH Lighting has given equal care to the product’s aesthetics. It’s a remarkable lighting system that will meet the needs of the most demanding architectural applications.”
