With a range of color temperature choices and a variety of beam spread options to put light where you want it, Kichler’s newest, fully-featured Design Pro LED 12V Accent and In-Ground Lights and 120V Accent Lights are the best choice for any landscape lighting job. “Landscape lighting professionals have embraced our Design Pro LED Lighting Systems and will be wowed once again by the newest evolution of this technology with our new Radiax™ optics,” said Jeff Dross, corporate director of education and industry trends at Kichler. “Radiax optics, a Kichler design exclusive, drives increased output from LED chips for better performance.” Radiax optics come in two forms – side-powered on larger fixtures and center-powered on smaller ones. Both designs result in precise, powerful and efficient landscape lighting, and offer the greatest lumens per watt in the industry.

Tight manufacturing tolerances insure greater color consistency, and every unit is sealed and fully potted to protect it from weather elements for optimum performance year after year. With a 40,000-hour life-span and an unmatched 15-year residential warranty, the new Design Pro LED Accent Lights feature an integrated cowl for glare-control and come in three sizes: small (12V), medium (12V and 120V), and large (12V and 120V), as well as a cast brass in-ground (12V) light fixture.
