The EVERLINE® LED Professional Retrofit Kit (PRK) from Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc., a member of the Panasonic Group, is a pan style fixture LED retrofit kit designed to replace existing fluorescent solutions, including prismatic troffers, direct/indirect luminaires, volumetric luminaires, and parabolic luminaires.
“There’s a large base of aging recessed fluorescent lighting that is a leading candidate for retrofit versus full fixture replacement,” said Stephanie Boyle, senior director of product management for Universal’s EVERLINE LED retrofit solutions. “The EVERLINE PRK family will offer an easy to install and energy efficient LED troffer upgrade with less disruption because it goes right into the existing fixture housing.”
The LED Professional Retrofit Kit converts 1′ x 4′ (PRK14), 2′ x 2′ (PRK22), and 2′ x 4′ (PRK24) fluorescent recessed fixtures to LED. It is equipped with a 0V to 10V dimmable LED driver and comes in four Color Correlation Temperature (CCT) options, including 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, and 5000K. This LED retrofit kit is also an option to refresh the look of an older fixture.
With a range of configuration possibilities and a five-year limited warranty, EVERLINE PRK upgrades the light distribution as well as the light engine, making it a suitable option for installers working on a variety of applications such as offices, classrooms, lobbies, corridors, and other commercial and institutional spaces. The light engine, a top-performing EVERLINE LED driver and high-efficacy LED modules, is easy for technicians to install and will provide controllable lighting for virtually any recessed retrofit.
“Universal has made it easy to retrofit fluorescent to LED, to qualify for available rebates, and to save energy,” stated Boyle. “Select EVERLINE LED Professional Retrofit Kits are DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Premium Qualified and all have a 95,000 hour rating at L70, considerably reducing maintenance costs.”
The EVERLINE PRK’s design features a heavy gauge steel housing and aluminum LED tray finished with corrosion- and scratch-resistant white enamel that offers durability and improved optics. The kit, which is UL Classified 1598C in the U.S. and Canada and specified for 120-277VAC or 347VAC power configurations, also offers excellent light quality with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 80.
