Cooledge Lighting, Inc., an LED lighting technology company, announced today that it will debut its flexible light sheet technologyand launch European operations next week at Light+Building in Frankfurt, Germany. Simultaneous with the product launch in Europe, Cooledge Lighting has established Cooledge Lighting, GmbH in Munich, Germany and a sales and marketing office in Hamburg, Germany to support existing and future European customers.

"We are thrilled to bring Cooledge's flexible light sheet technology to the European marketplace", said Wade Sheen, CEO of Cooledge Lighting. "Establishing a European presence is a natural step for us as we continue to grow as a company."

"We have seen an excitement and adoption that is simply unprecedented", said John Campsmith, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Visitors come to Light+Building expecting to see the latest products and technologies. We are proud to be showing what we believe to be the next step in the evolution of LED lighting."

Light+Building is the world's biggest trade fair event for lighting, architecture and building-services technology and takes place in Frankfurt, Germany between March 30 and April 4. Cooledge will be showing its innovative flexible light sheet products at Booth C61 in Hall 4.0.

Cooledge light sheet provides high quality lighting with luminous efficacies of up to 140 lumens per watt and over 100,000 hours lifetime to L90. The light sheet utilizes a highly dense pattern of LEDs on a thin plastic substrate, delivering on the promise of OLEDs with the reliability and performance of LEDs.

Light sheet's unique form factor permits large panels, long lengths and the ability to conform to a wide variety of shapes, eliminating many of the constraints and challenges imposed by existing LED systems. Luminaire designs using the light sheet can be fluid, thin and minimal in design as well as allowing unique material choices. Based on Cooledge Lighting's patented technology, this new medium of light requires no heat-sinking or thermal management and inspires a wide range of unique and novel luminaire designs.

Cooledge light sheet comes in various sizes having widths from 28mm (1.1") to 280mm (11") and lengths up to 10m (30'). These linear sheets are available in nominal one-foot standard lengths and can be custom configured to luminaire manufacturer requirements. Light sheet is fully dimmable with standard commercial dimmers and is a class-2 low voltage component, allowing for ease of integration and design. The product is RoHS/REACH compliant and carries a 5-year limited system warranty.
