Whether in hospitals, educational facilities, or commercial spaces, it is estimated that over 360 million troffers are installed in the United States1. Historically, these 1x4, 2x2, 2x4 size luminaires used fluorescent light sources. Though more energy efficient than those using incandescent lamps, luminaires that employ fluorescent tubes still cannot achieve the performance of their LED counterparts. With lighting accounting for approximately 20% of the electricity used in a typical commercial building1, it is no surprise that the U.S. Department of Energy along with local agencies are creating more stringent building energy standards. Building owners are feeling the increased pressure to meet these new energy requirements, as well as looking for ways to cut operating costs, thus turning to higher efficiency luminaires.
Once thought to be achievable only with high-cost luminaires, resulting in a slow adoption of LED technology, the conversion can now be completed with competitively-priced luminaires. Coupled with constant advances in LED technology, allowing for superior performance, while remaining cost-effective, converting to LED luminaires offers immediate benefits without the need to choose between performance, serviceability and cost. Selecting an LED troffer that meets the facility requirements and energy standards is made simple with the Focal Point Architectural LED Troffer brochure that includes an easy to use selector guide. Download it today and choose from a wide selection of troffers that will meet your aesthetics and performance criteria, including DLC and DLC Premium certified luminaires!
