Cree Announces Volume Shipments of LR4 Recessed LED Down Lights

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, announces volume shipments in May of the LR4, a four-inch architectural recessed LED down light for new construction and renovation projects. The LR4 has been specified in a number of significant projects, including corporate campuses, full-service hotels, and global restaurant chains.

“The eco-friendly LR4 lighting system helps create a warm and comfortable environment for our guests while reducing our energy and maintenance cost,” said Steve Eckley, VP of Operations at Amerimar, Inc., developer of the Hutton Hotel in Nashville, TN, an early LR4 installation.

The LR4 delivers up to 540 lumens of high-quality light from less than 11 watts of power and features:
• A color rendering index (CRI) of up to 94,
• Two available color temperatures, warm white (2,700K) and neutral (3,500K)
• Two available shield angles, 15º and 30º, and
• Dimmable design, including compatibility with Lutron Electronics products.

These features provide an exceptional lighting experience, enhancing the appearance of room surfaces, furnishings and merchandise. The LR4 also provides a wide range of application flexibility allowing designers to precisely deliver light to surfaces within the visual environment.

“Cree has demonstrated the LR4 to hundreds of customers throughout the world and the feedback has been exceptionally strong,” said Neal Hunter, president, Cree LED Lighting Solutions. “Customers praise the beautiful color common to all Cree Lighting products and emphasize its architectural appeal, including the high-quality finishes and materials, soft and uniform appearance, and effective light distribution.”
