Lumecon of Farmington Hills, Michigan, a maker of LED lighting, announced the release of its “Detroit Series,” an all-encompassing LED lighting series that the company created with the Motor City in mind.
“The story of Lumecon is heavily influenced by the cars and trucks Detroit has been producing for the past 100 years,” said Bob Hahn, president, Lumecon. “The sleek lines of the design are reminiscent of the muscle cars I grew up around, so this line very much has a ‘Detroit’ feel to it.”
The new line of lighting will come in the form of area lights, wall packs, and floods, as well as decorative luminaires. The product is built for cities, municipalities and commercial end users that want reliable lighting. The Detroit Series features 20,000-Amp surge suppression built standard into every fixture. The company says that the surge suppression and high reliability make the Detroit Series perfect for lighting parking lots, entryways, and general pedestrian applications.
“We’ve had discussions with potential customers outside of the state that want to be a part of the Detroit story,” added Hahn. “The automotive industry is ingrained in our country’s collective consciousness, so it makes sense we’re seeing interest outside of Detroit.”
First Two Detroit Series Luminaires are the Thirty-Five West and the Forward Throw Wall Pack
The first two Detroit Series products include the decorative post top luminaire, Thirty-Five West, and the Forward Throw Wall Pack. The Thirty-Five West incorporates Lumecon’s patented external heat sink management system built into the aesthetically stylish decorative cage. Both products show the company’s commitment to support Michigan-based firms. The injection molding is done in Charlevoix, Mich.; the casting is completed in Muskegon, Mich., and the final assembly takes place at Lumecon’s headquarters in Farmington Hills, Mich.
“The name of the Thirty-Five West is taken from the distance – 35 miles – between the city of Detroit and Ann Arbor, Mich., which is the first community to purchase and install these new lights,” said Hahn.
As with all Lumecon products, the Detroit Series comes standard with a 10-year, L-70 all-parts warranty.
