Acuity Brands New Peerless® Open LED Luminaire with Minimalistic Design Offers Pleasant Light Quality

The brand new Peerless® Open LED luminaires from Acuity Brands, Inc. have been acknowledged as the sole recipient of the annual Most Innovative Product of the Year award from the LIGHTFAIR® International 2014 awards competition. The LFI Innovation Awards®, judged by an independent panel of esteemed lighting professionals, recognize the best innovations from more than 500 of the world’s leading manufacturers across the lighting industry.

"The Peerless Open luminaire represents a significant advancement in lighting," said Jimalee Beno, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and Peerless Value Stream Leader. "It clearly shows we are no longer limited by form factor when designing and engineering LED luminaires. We set out to engineer an LED luminaire that did not require a lens and would solve the challenge of eliminating dirt, dust and even dead bugs settling on the lens’ surface. Our new Open luminaire shows that LED solutions have tremendous potential beyond reducing energy use and maintenance. Best of all, this luminaire is just one example of how Acuity Brands is driving LED lighting innovation."

Peerless Open luminaires use constructive occlusion to reflect and diffuse LED light across an inner arch and back down to produce soft, comfortable Illumination from a lens-free linear form. Open luminaires can be specified with an integrated sensor and control module for daylight dimming, occupancy detection, lumen management and system networking. The uplight and downlight portions of the luminaire can be controlled separately, expanding the ability to tailor the light output for a broad range of applications. The luminaires are available in suspended, recessed and surface forms.
