Lunera Lighting Expands LED Fixture Offering for Armstrong TechZone Ceilings

Lunera® Lighting, Inc., a Silicon Valley company that designs, manufactures, and markets next-generation LED lighting, is pleased to announce the 5400 SERIES, the world’s first LED luminaire certified for Armstrong’s TechZone Ceiling Systems. The 5400 SERIES features a high Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 85 and has an R9 measurement of nearly 70. The energy efficient, linear fixture is now available in three color temperatures to suit any interior environment and its sleek design creates a clean, elegant ceiling visual while providing voluminous light from the six-inch-wide technical zone.

“Our 5400 SERIES LED luminaire is designed to perfectly fit into an Armstrong® TechZoneTM Ceiling System, reducing installation time and cost. Available in a white finish that matches the Armstrong ceiling, the combination of Lunera’s 5400 SERIES LED luminaire and the TechZone Ceiling System creates a clean, linear visual appearance, while providing a highly efficient, sustainable solution to immediately lower a facility’s operating costs,” commented Rich Warmke, Lunera Director of Strategic Marketing.

The third generation of the 5400 SERIES luminaire is now available in 3500K, 4000K and 5000K color temperatures to suit the requirements of a building’s occupants whether for office, school, hospital, retail, or other commercial applications. The fully dimmable fixture dramatically fills a space with bright, near-daylight illumination, making it an efficient alternative to standard fluorescent fixtures. In addition to Armstrong white, a perfect color match for TechZone ceilings, the 5400 SERIES is also available in a silver frame, the most popular finish of other Lunera luminaires.

“We’re pleased to have Lunera on our list of approved TechZone Lighting Fixture Partners.  With the 5400 SERIES, TechZone installations can realize the energy and sustainability benefits of LED lighting technology and enjoy the full spectrum quality light that the Lunera fixture delivers. Lunera’s certified compliant fixture eliminates the need to research fixture compatibility for your ceiling layout, making the entire system an easy-to-specify, easy-to-install acoustical ceiling solution,” said Joann Davis Brayman, V.P., Commercial Marketing, Armstrong Building Products.

Combining the Lunera 5400 SERIES with the wide variety of TechZone field panel sizes available will accommodate most on-center spacing requirements. For color consistency, Lunera uses its proprietary truLITE™ Color Consistency Process to select and integrate LEDs within two MacAdam Ellipses. Lunera sources LEDs exclusively from top vendors that have LM80 test data and designs fixtures to operate LEDs well below their maximum specified thermal limits, ensuring dependable operation and long life. Each fixture is serialized and has a 50,000-hour life expectancy. The fully recyclable fixtures contain no harmful chemicals and radiate less heat than comparable incumbent lighting technologies.

Eliminating the Initial Cost of a 5400 SERIES Installation:
The initial cost of installing the 5400 SERIES may be reduced through various rebate programs and can be eliminated for qualified customers through a simple five-year term capital equipment lease offered by Lunera Capital Plus (LCP), a private financing service of Lunera Lighting.
