Gallium Lighting introduces high output white LED downlight

YUCAIPA, CA - Gallium Lighting announced its debut with an architectural downlight featuring white LEDs that deliver long life, excellent energy efficiency, and unprecedented lumen output comparable to 18-26 watt compact fluorescent luminaires.

The LEDs in Gallium’s GS6 luminaire have a rated life of 40,000 to 50,000 hours, which corresponds to 20-25 years when operated 8 hours per day in a standard business environment operating 250 days per year. This is 20 to 25 times the life of standard incandescent bulbs, and 4 to 5 times the life of compact fluorescent lamps.

In addition, the GS6 sets a new standard for light output, providing up to 40% more light than a standard 65W incandescent downlight, while consuming 60% less energy. Finally, it is the first white LED architectural downlight to provide the lumen output and efficacy levels of compact fluorescents.

“The white LED is the most exciting new lighting technology since the introduction of fluorescent lamps almost 60 years ago,” said Dr. Keith Bahde, President of Gallium Lighting. “In addition to the obvious benefit of ultra-low maintenance, LED lighting combines the aesthetic appeal of quartz-halogen lighting with the energy savings of fluorescent lighting.

LED lighting is also good news for the environment. It has the potential to dramatically reduce fossil fuel depletion and carbon dioxide emissions, and there are no disposal concerns because our products contain no mercury or other hazardous substances.”
