WORCESTER, MA, September 2, 2015—Access Fixtures, a leading manufacturer and distributor of commercial, industrial, and sports lighting, has announced the expansion of their affordable LED parking garage lighters with the addition of MaxLite LED parking garage lighting and canopy lights. MaxLite LED parking garage lighting is a long-lasting, energy-efficient upgrade for any indoor surface or multi-story parking garage. “MaxLite LED parking garage lighting significantly lowers energy use, virtually eliminates maintenance, and increases safety,” said Access Fixtures CEO, Steven Rothschild. “Now with very-affordable pricing, property managers who upgrade their outdated parking garage lighting to LED parking garage lighting will have a fast payback and will save money year after year.” MaxLite LED parking garage lighting was developed as an energy-efficient solution to bolster safety and security in parking garages. Multiple fixture types are available, including canopy and linear parking garage luminaires. The MaxLite LED canopy fixtures are DesignLights Consortium® certified and are specially designed to project 30% more light in a 60–80-degree plane. Their specialized design provides optimum light levels to allow drivers to retrieve and maneuver vehicles in parking structures. LED garage lights are sensible replacements for traditional fixtures, like the 40w MaxLite LED canopy light, which is capable of replacing an equivalent 175w metal halide fixture. LEDs have a much longer operating life than traditional fixtures like metal halides—they last for up to 100,000 hours and virtually eliminate maintenance costs. For uncompromising safety and security, MaxLite LED parking garage lighting from Access Fixtures is the premium choice.

LED Bollard Lights Selected to Light Pathway at New St. Louis Office Building

An architectural firm located in St. Louis contacted Access Fixtures lighting specialists with a series of questions regarding walkway lighting at a commercial construction project. They were seeking information to help them decide how to choose the right LED bollard lights for pathway lighting. Priorities for the LED bollard lights were style, durability, safety, ease of maintenance, energy efficiency, limited light trespass, and affordability. Choosing an LED Bollard for Pathway Lighting: Where to Begin? Contacting an Access Fixtures specialist early in a new lighting or construction project saves time and money. Knowledgeable, LS1-certified lighting specialists can help clients answer the following questions: What should be illuminated?   What should not to be illuminated?   Which landscape features might be illuminated? Do ambient light levels need to be incorporated into the design? Are there any local lighting regulations that need to be considered? A hasty lighting decision can have unexpected consequences. Light pollution from unshielded or inefficient fixtures can upset the surrounding environment, cause dangerous glare for drivers, obscure the night sky, and threaten wildlife. Many municipalities have laws regulating the height, wattage, and even color of the lights property owners are allowed to install. In other cases, there may be rebates available for choosing energy-efficient LED lights. Energy-Efficient LED Bollard Lights for Pathway Lighting The client wanted to light a walkway and limit the direction of the light from a typical, 360-degree spread to a 180-degree spread in order to limit light trespass. An Access Fixtures lighting specialist suggested 15w USA LED Round Dome Top Bollards with Aluminum Cone Reflectors. Energy-efficient LED bollards from Access Fixtures have a variety of interchangeable...

Upgrading Lighting? What You Need to Know about ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC

For commercial real estate, lighting regulations ASHRAE 90.1 and the IECC are important factors to consider when updating existing lighting fixtures. The IECC applies to low-rise buildings up to three stories and single-family homes. The ASHRAE 90.1 applies to multifamily- or high-rise buildings with more than four stories. In 2012, the lighting regulations for the IECC were updated to represent an increased 30% energy-efficiency requirement, which was a significant increase from the 2009 edition. A recent update from July 2015 has added 77 changes to the IECC and ASHRAE 90.1 lighting regulation requirements. Which ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC Lighting Regulations Have Changed? The new standards state that if 10% or more of the lighting fixtures in a space undergoing improvements must be changed, then every fixture in the space must be replaced. Three-lamp T8 fluorescent fixtures are no longer acceptable for any installation and more energy-efficient fixtures will be necessary to meet the updated watts/sq. ft. requirements. Multi-level control of lumen output, in addition to occupancy sensors, will now be required in all spaces unless the area has only one fixture. The occupancy sensors must have a vacancy mode and all spaces within 15 feet of windows will need to be fitted with daylight sensors that support dimming or multi-level controls. Lighting Designed to Meet ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC Code and for Success While T5 and T8F25 are acceptable replacement options, the declining cost of LED recessed troffers and flush mount panel lights likely means the market will be dominated by LEDs. For upgraded lighting that meets compliance with ASHRAE 90.1 and the IECC 2015 edition, LEDs are the...
