Leveraging their knowledge of LED technology, Kichler’s new line of LED lamps offers superior performance, energy-savings, durability and a wide range of options for use in both residential and commercial landscape lighting applications. When an integrated LED fixture is not an option, these LED lamps are the perfect alternate solution. “We understand that while an integrated LED system is preferable, it is not always possible,” said Kichler’s Landscape Lighting Product Manager Scott Pesta. “If homeowners or property managers have recently installed fixtures with incandescent lamps, but are looking for the benefits of LED lighting technology, these lamps can be replaced with our new line of LED lamps to give them the cost-savings and energy-efficiency desired within their current lighting system.” All Kichler® LED lamps are designed, tested and listed for use in outdoor environments and outdoor wet locations, as well as in open or enclosed fixtures. These lamps are also available for accent, in-ground and path lights – including Kichler fixtures and those of other brands – to ensure a solution for nearly every landscape lighting system. Superior Performance Kichler’s 12V LED lamps generate consistent light output with an operating range from 9 to 15V. The 120V options offer an operating range from 120 to 277V. All Kichler LED lamps are listed or certified by UL, ETL and/or CSA to the appropriate ANSI/standard for both the United States and Canada. They are also tested for FCC compliance, assuring they won’t interfere with other electronic devices. Energy Savings Kichler’s LED lamps help lower the total operating cost of existing systems by consuming less wattage than halogen or incandescent lamps. Not only do they use less energy, but they also have a longer service life than traditional bulbs, meaning less maintenance and fewer replacement bulbs. The lamps can pay for themselves in less than two years. Durable Design A 30,000-hour lifespan in an enclosed fixture (which meets the standard lumen maintenance target of L70) and unmatched six-year warranty are proof of these bulbs’ superior design. The electronics found inside Kichler’s LED lamps are weathercoated and epoxy-potted to assure superior durability and all-weather performance. The anodized black cast aluminum heat sink also offers better thermal properties that allow the fixtures to run cooler. Beam Spread and Kelvin Color Temperature Options Kichler offers lamps for a variety of fixture types and beam spread choices from narrow spot to wide flood. In addition, three Kelvin (K) color temperature options help users customize the color of the light to their application. All with a high Coloring Rendering Index, available color temperatures include: 2700K Warm White Light – This look mimics residential incandescent lighting, with warmer tones that bring outreds and yellows. 3000K Pure White Light – This warm, halogen-looking light is more neutral in appearance and a great all-around optionfor plant life and supporting structures. 4200K Cool White Light – A moonlit feel makes greens more vibrant and is ideal for a cool, commercial look.
