Universal Lighting Technologies Introduces New Professional Retrofit Kit

Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc., a global leader in lighting and a member of the Panasonic Group, is expanding its continuum of LED retrofit solutions with its Everline® LED Professional Retrofit Kit (PRK). The pan-style fixture retrofit kit is designed to replace existing fluorescent solutions including prismatic troffers, direct/indirect luminaires, volumetric luminaires and parabolic luminaires.

“There’s a large base of aging recessed fluorescent lighting that is a leading candidate for retrofit versus full fixture replacement,” said Stephanie Boyle, senior director of product management for Universal’s Everline LED retrofit solutions. “The Everline PRK family will offer an easy to install and energy efficient LED troffer upgrade with less disruption because it goes right into the existing fixture housing.”

The Everline PRK, equipped with a 0-10 V dimmable LED driver, will retrofit 1-by-4 foot (PRK14), 2-by-2 foot (PRK22) and 2-by-4 foot (PRK24) fluorescent recessed fixtures to high-quality Everline LED. It comes in four Color Correlation Temperature (CCT) options including 3000 K, 3500 K, 4000 K and 5000 K.

With a range of configuration possibilities and a five-year limited warranty, Everline PRK upgrades the light distribution as well as the light engine, making it an ideal option for installers working on a variety of applications including offices, classrooms, lobbies, corridors and other commercial and institutional spaces. The light engine, a top-performing Everline LED driver and high-efficacy LED modules, is easy for technicians to install and will provide controllable lighting for virtually any recessed retrofit.

“Universal has made it easy to retrofit fluorescent to LED, to qualify for available rebates and to save energy,” stated Boyle. “Select Everline LED Professional Retrofit Kits are DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Premium Qualified and all have a 95,000 hour rating at L70, considerably reducing maintenance costs.”

The Everline PRK’s design features a heavy gauge steel housing and aluminum LED tray finished with corrosion- and scratch-resistant white enamel that offers impressive durability and improved optics. The kit, which is UL Classified 1598C in the United States and Canada and specified for 120-277 VAC or 347 VAC power configurations, also offers excellent light quality with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 80.
