Why Alumalight?

Go green without going into the red

Whether you’re replacing old lights or installing lights on a new construction, Alumalight can help you go green without going into the red. Switch over and watch the savings – of both energy and your dollars – begin.

With reduced operating costs, payback, reduced relamping, rebates and sensors, the combined economic benefits of changing from existing metal halide fixtures to T5 and T8 fluorescent technology are very compelling.

  • While operating, T5 and T8 fixtures use far less wattage and amperage than metal halide fixtures, so energy costs are significantly reduced – by 45 to 60 percent.
  • Payback, predicated on operating hours and the cost of installation, typically ranges from one to four years.
  • Our fluorescent fixtures only have to be relamped once during a 20,000-25,000 hour operating cycle, whereas metal halide fixtures must be relamped two or three times during that cycle to maintain desired light levels.
  • There are grants and tax incentives available for companies who upgrade to an energy-efficient lighting system. Please visit www.dsireusa.org to learn more.
  • Sensors ensure that light is used only when it is needed, and they can significantly cut energy use and costs.
  • Our line of LED lights is simple and quick to install. Using the latest technology, our boards hold the best LED chips available, offering enhanced light with less heat and a longer lifespan.

High Quality Light = Productivity

Our T5 and T8 lamps provide better quality light than HIDs due to photopic versus scotopic lumens. T5 and T8 fluorescent lamps provide high levels of photopic lumens (as older lighting systems do), and also scotopic lumens. Scotopic lumens are perceived in terms of visual acuity; they better replicate natural outdoor lighting and provide more accurate, precise color rendering.

Creating the Perfect Ambiance

T5 and T8 lamps are available in a range of color temperatures to suit all lighting needs, from warm light to the crisp white of daylight.

Electronic ballasts are free of the humming, buzzing and flickering commonly associated with outdated T12 fluorescent systems that run on magnetic ballasts.

Safety in the Workplace

With a bulb wall temperature of 1200ºF, metal halides are hot, inefficient and potentially dangerous.

T8 and T5 fluorescents are relatively cool, with a bulb wall temperature of only 110-130ºF, eliminating the safety hazards of excess heat.

Reliability

HID (high intensity discharge) lamps degrade rapidly, losing a significant portion of their lumens within 6,000 hours of use, necessitating frequent relamping. T5 and T8 lamps maintain 96 percent of their initial lumens throughout their lifecycle.

With Alumalight, group re-lamping may not be required for more than five years (about 20,000-25,000 usage hours) after installation.

An attractive light

Tough Enough for Your Demands

The Alumalight is industrial strength, stamped from aluminum that’s 50 percent thicker than the industry standard for most aluminum high bay fixtures.

The Alumalight body, end pieces, and socket bridge are fastened together using Tog-L-Loc** – far stronger than screws or rivets.

The Alumalight can withstand a hit from a forklift, hockey puck, or ball.

Versatile

With the patented multi-socket bridge and wide body, the UL-listed Alumalight accommodates T5 or T8 lamps, in four or six lamp configurations. If your lighting needs change, the Alumalight can be adapted to suit new needs – at minimal effort and cost.

The Alumalight accepts all major brand ballasts and lamps (TCP, Phillips Advance, GE, Sylvania) and motion and occupancy sensors.

An optional wire guard or lens cover can be used in spaces such as ice rinks, gyms, or food processing areas.

Low-Maintenance

The well-ventilated Alumalight allows for ample air flow within the fixture, thereby extending ballast life.

When relamping is necessary, our optional wire cage is designed for quick changes, as it is secured on one side with bolted P-clamps and on the other with zip ties.

The Alumalight generates about a tenth of the heat of metal halides, significantly reducing the demand on the air conditioning system.

Made in the USA

Alumalight is proud to offer products solely made and manufactured in the U.S.A.
