In early 2020, Amerlux will begin shipping an innovative lighting solution that caters to the needs of people inside buildings. The design-and-manufacture lighting company’s new AERUS lighting solution—which delivers a unique style and look compared to other indirect/direct pendants in the marketplace—maximizes technological advances in electronics and optics to create better work environments that promote productivity and employee health.
Consider a snapshot of casualties in today’s workplace:
- The Mayo Clinic lists glare and bright light as the leading causes of eyestrain, which decreases productivity and increases health insurance premiums.
- Americans spend $87.6 billion annually treating neck and back pain, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association.
- Improved lighting design can yield 23% gains in productivity, according to the U.S. Green Building Council.
“We just recreated every manic Monday in a better light,” said Bill Plageman, Amerlux’s VP of Marketing and Product Development. “We take anidolic optics to the next level, hiding the LED diode to evenly disburse indirect light and essentially eliminating glare. Our product’s delivery of light with the controlled comfort is invaluable in the workplace.”
AERUS promotes unparalleled comfort and aesthetics in several ways:
- Anidolic Optics: Since the actual light source isn’t easy to see, AERUS delivers an indirect/direct (75%/25%) lighting distribution in an efficient and comfortable manner.
- No Visual Power Feed: AERUS uses low-voltage aircraft cable that supports and supplies power to the fixture.
- Closer Ceiling Mounts: AERUS mounts 12 inches below the ceiling, compared to standard mounting for indirect/direct pendants of 18 inches to 24 inches, without creating a “hot spot.” It delivers 35 foot-candles at 30 inches above finished floor.
- Wider Spacing: While delivering even, soft illumination above and between fixtures, AERUS can be mounted up to 12 feet on center. AERUS delivers the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES)-recommended foot-candle on desk.
