Luminaire Longevity for AreaMax LED in Marine Environments.
Evluma provides an enhanced coastal package for LED lighting installed in marine shore and salt spray environments.
August 1, 2016…Renton, WA. Evluma announces a new anti-corrosion, coastal package for its family of AreaMax LED luminaires for street and area lighting. The new coastal option will include a new cast aluminum alloy, an anti-corrosion chromate coating plus an aluminum access panel, a stainless steel tenon clamp and all stainless steel fasteners. The anti-corrosive materials, metals and coatings have been specifically selected by Evluma Engineers for their high durability in harsh salt-spray environments.
The new coastal package is a requirement for the 10 year warranty if the luminaire is located within 2000 ft of any salt water body. “Salt environments are notoriously tough on coastal lighting, requiring materials specifically chosen to withstand exposure to the elements,” said Evluma VP of Sales and Marketing David Tanonis. Evluma recently conducted an extended test of their non-coastal and earlier coastal LED lighting package in a salt-spray environment on the southern coast of Oregon. “Based on our results, we enhanced the coastal option AreaMax with premium, anti-corrosive materials that will guarantee our 10 year warranty in these locations.”
Evluma recommends the use of the flat, full-cut off lens (U0) and the AreaMax Light Trespass shield, made of stainless steel, for coastal areas where light pollution may be of particular concern. The AreaMax is now available in CCT ranging 3000K to 5000K, with the 3000K option released in July 2016. The coastal option is available for order immediately with an estimated October 2016 delivery.
