Responding to the popularity of its Design Pro LED under cabinet
lighting, Kichler introduces yet another energy-saving lighting solution with uncompromising good looks – Design Pro Discs
. For use inside a curio, above a mantel, below a cabinet and in a variety of other areas, the new Design Pro Discs use 75 percent less electricity than their incandescent counterparts and feature an ultra-thin, nearly invisible 3/8" profile
The cool-operating LED Design Pro Discs also apply the best LED technology available
for focused, directional white lighting, delivering high brightness and a sharp color rendering (greater than 90CRI). Plus, installation is easy and flexible thanks to captive screws and an innovative electrical wiring design that comes with an impressive three-foot of wire pre-spooled inside the fixture. Users simply install the fixture and pull out the wiring needed for their specific job – excess wire stays neatly in place. An optional extension offers three additional feet of wiring for even greater flexibility.
"In addition to their great energy savings, homeowners and contractors alike will appreciate the flexibility and distinct aesthetic Design Pro Discs deliver," said Jeff Dross, Kichler senior product manager. "No matter where they're used, homeowners will gain a custom lighting system that's backed by the durability and reliability of the Kichler Lighting brand, plus an average lifetime use of 40,000 hours or approximately 20 years."
The new Design Pro Discs can be used individually or in combination with Kichler's Design Pro LED under cabinet fixtures to create a seamless flow of light under multiple cabinets and furnishings. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the discs are available in bronze, white, black and brushed nickel to blend into any surrounding to maintain a neat, integrated appearance. All Design Pro LED products are ENERGY STAR rated, a distinction given by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy for energy efficient solutions, when used with most power supplies.
The Design Pro Discs are already earning industry accolades, having been named a winner in the prestigious 2008 Lighting for Tomorrow Awards.
The Lighting For Tomorrow Award, sponsored by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency, the U.S. Department of Energy and the American Lighting Association, was created to encourage manufacturers to produce a range of new lighting fixtures that save consumers money by using less electricity, complement home décor and provide high-quality light. Winners are selected by a panel of industry experts following extensive Department of Energy testing and recognized for their aesthetic appearance, superior color rendering, high energy efficiency and overall innovation.
