CARA 26w Turtle LED Light: LEDs, Lens, and Performance

The 26w LED array emits 1,159 lumens. The array is custom engineered specifically for this fixture to best optimize heat dissipation. It uses a 100% aluminum board with copper tracings to increase the fixture’s lifespan and decrease lumen depreciation.

Electronic 1-10v dimmable drivers are standard and easily accessed for driver maintenance.

The lens is crucial to the ingress protection. A mechanically applied gasket around this lens creates a consistent seal to assure the fixture’s IP66 rating. The fixture comes with a high-quality glass lens, which provides maximum light output. Alternatively, choose the prismatic lens option for a refracted effect that diffuses and distributes the light with minimal light loss. Learn more about Access Fixtures Prismatic Lenses vs. Clear Glass Lenses.

CARA 26w Turtle LED Light Housing and Mounting

The CARA 26w turtle LED light’s slimline housing is the second part of the IP66 seal. It also serves as the LED heat sink, integrating thermal management.

The fixture housing and door frame are both die-cast aluminum, 100% copper free alloy with no recycled content. (Aluminum tends to degrade after each reuse cycle due to impurities.) Screws mount from the top give a clean architectural finish. The nickel-plated stainless steel hardware prevents seizing.

The fixture is 11.75″ x 9.5″ x 3.63″ and weighs 11 lbs. The mounting options are as follows:

  • Direct Square Mounting Arm (AF33XKH25A)
  • Easy-Hang Wall Bracket (AF33XKHEH)
  • Slip Fitter Mount for 2 3/8″ Tenon (AF33XFL73SFX)
  • Steel Yoke Mount (AF33XKH25Y)
  • Two-Piece Swivel Bracket (AF33XFL73BR)

All mounting brackets have a powder coat finish. Choose mounting heights from 10 to 20 feet for optimal light level and uniformity readings. Call us today to discuss the lighting for your project. Our team will also help you navigate EPA ratings, wind loads, weight restrictions, and more, if applicable. If you have exacting lighting requirements, please request a photometric report for your layout. For details, call an Access Fixtures lighting specialist at 800-468-9925.
