MaxLite Presents LiteBars™ as Linkable Lighting with Limitless Design Possibilities

Compact, linkable and easy to mount, LiteBars are the perfect solution for under cabinet, toe kick, cove, display, wall washing and other accent and indirect lighting applications. LiteBars can be linked for continuous runs of light up to 40 feet long, with near-imperceptible breaks in light. The ENERGY STAR certified bars are designed with a patent-pending, integrated connector that results in a separation of just 1/8-inch between linked bars. New-generation driver technology delivers smooth and even dimming performance across the entire connected run.

LiteBars are available in assorted lengths (6, 12, 24, 36 and 48 inches), color temperatures (2700 K, 3500 K, 5000 K) and CRI (80 or 90) to meet virtually any design requirement. A slim, 3/4-inch profile enables the bars to navigate the smallest spaces with ease. Accessories include 90-degree and flexible connectors that can be used to create hard or soft corners and shift between horizontal and vertical layouts. Bracket, pivot and magnetic mounting options facilitate quick and easy installation, with flexibility for applications in which shelving heights may change. LiteBars are damp rated and National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certified, enabling the bars to be used in food preparation and refrigerated display cases.

“Our new LiteBars are truly an evolution in versatility and performance from previous versions, in how the bars can be connected, mounted and applied,” noted Director of Indoor Product Management Brendan Drew. “Dimming performance has also been substantially improved. LiteBars are built with the latest LED drivers, which deliver superior dimming performance across long connected runs, even when bar lengths are mixed.”

Depending on configuration, outputs in the series range from 148 to 1,330 lumens, with dimming down to 10 percent of full light output. An architectural-grade diffuser eliminates hot spots and ensures eye-pleasing distribution of high quality light on any surface. LiteBars deliver a long lumen maintenance lifetime of 50,000 hours, and come supported with a five-year limited warranty.
