LED Mega Blockz for Commercial Installation - a Powerful Yet Versatile Square LED Module

American Illumination’s newest 4×4 Mega Blockz LED module is perfect for commercial indoor or outdoor applications where high lumen output and low energy use is required. It uses ultra-bright yet low power LEDs and packs a punch with an output of over 800 lumens. The Mega Blockz is incredibly bright given that it is only sixteen inches square (4”x4”) in size. Building owners, architects, engineers and facility managers will appreciate the Mega Blockz because it exceeds the minimum 70 lm/w Energy Star efficacy requirement for solid state lighting.

High lumens, terrific light output too:
• It emits about the equivalent of a 60 watt incandescent light bulb at minimum. This equals to over 800 lumens at Warm White (2700K) while consuming only 10.3W. Efficacy exceeds 70 lumens per watt!
• At 4000K natural white, its efficacy is at 88 lumens per watt.
• The square array creates a directional beam angle over 100 degrees.
• It is dimmable and durable with a solid finned aluminum housing for excellent thermal management.

Built to impress and exceed OEM and designer expectations:
• Mega Blockz is approximately 4″ x 4″ x 7/8″ dimensions – perfect to install in linear surfaces as a wall pack.
• No additional heat sink required!
• The module is securely potted and perfectly sealed for moist or damp environments.
• To give customers total design freedom, the module is available in low and line voltage: 12V AC/DC, or 120V AC
• Sturdy tabs make it easy to mount for secure placement. Customized mounting is available upon request.

A Universal Building Block for Low Profile Light Fixtures:
According, to Mark Lee, American Illumination’s President, “We designed the Mega Blockz module due to demand for a high output, easy to install, low profile sturdy LED module that will work in both new and retrofit applications. Designers will enjoy specifying the Mega Blockz because it adapts nicely to low profile space requirement applications. Fixture designs are limitless!”

Mega Blockz is the cornerstone to a designer’s palate of fixtures. It is perfect for both interior and exterior installations; the 4×4 Mega Blockz can be incorporated into sconces, indirect light sources such as hanging pendants, and some ceiling fixtures featuring a wide beam spread. Outdoors, it can be used in up lights, brick lights, signage or back lights, and general exterior lighting.
