Designed and engineered with Speirs + Major, a leading lighting design firm, the Aeroblades luminaire series takes a bold approach to architectural street, area and security lighting. Aeroblades luminaires redefine exterior lighting by enabling innovative LED implementation while optimising thermal management, light control, efficiency, longevity and payback.
“While everybody else was creating standard shoeboxes and other conventional designs, we were approached with a revolutionary technology that allowed us to throw out all preconceptions of how urban luminaires should appear,” said Keith Bradshaw, director, Speirs + Major. “The result is the Aeroblades luminaire, designed for the best LED performance and the form followed.”
The Aeroblades series offers a unique modular design that allows the state-of-the-art light engine to bring versatility and precision to outdoor applications. Aeroblades luminaires can be fine-tuned with NanoOptic technology optical control and the number of luminaire blades to meet specific illumination needs in smaller increments than either traditional designs or competitive LED products.
The luminaires come with an innovative thermal management system that enables higher lumen output and provides significant boosts to lifetime, efficacy and colour consistency. All luminaires have the option of 0-10V dimming, are designed to meet a minimum L70 (lumen maintenance) of 80,000 hours and feature a five-year warranty.
The modular design of the Aeroblades series enables customers to custom-design luminaires to best fit their application. Aeroblades luminaires will initially be available in more than 300 combinations, including: two, four or six blade versions, 20 optical distributions, four colour temperatures (3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5700K), four drive currents, two pole mount and wall mount versions and seven DeltaGuard paint finishes.
The Aeroblades series is sold through Cree lighting sales channels with sample quantities targeted for availability in calendar Q2, and full availability targeted to begin in Q3 of 2012.
