Cree Inc. introduces the VG Series Parking Garage Luminaire, which is designed to deliver optimal, low-glare illumination by intelligently eliminating direct view of the LEDs with an optical system. The VG Series helps create a pleasing appearance while delivering high-performance lighting. The VG Series lowers total cost of ownership and can deliver payback in less than two years.*
With typical parking garages operating 24/7, managing energy costs is critical for facility managers and owners. The new VG Series delivers energy savings up to 73 percent compared to the outdated metal halide fixtures they replace, while simultaneously delivering exceptional illumination quality, which can help create a safer feeling in garages. The low-glare luminaire features a composite optical system combining a highly efficient internal reflector and a precisely designed prismatic lens. Contrast between bright and dark areas in garages can create safety concerns for building owners and garage users. The Cree VG Series high-performance optical system can help achieve lighting design uniformity goals and a comfortable, safer-feeling environment for vehicles and pedestrians. Designed with simplified mounting solutions for seamless installation in most parking garages, the VG Series also delivers up to 10 percent desirable uplight, reducing the “cave effect” that is typical with existing LED luminaires and many conventional solutions lighting parking garages today.
