LED lighting manufacturer Evluma has received the IDA (International Dark Sky Association) Fixture Seal of Approval for its 40W and 70W 3000K CCT LED AreaMax street and area lights.

IDA’s Fixture Seal of Approval program certifies outdoor lighting fixtures as being Dark Sky Friendly, meaning that they minimize glare while reducing light trespass and skyglow. Certification criteria includes a CCT of 3000K or below and a U0 rating, emitting no light above 90 degrees. Street and area light submittals must also identify an optional backlight shield, available for the AreaMax since 2015.  

The AreaMax family models that bear the IDA’s Fixture Seal of Approval are AMAX-40-3K-V-C and AMAX-70-3K-V-C. These models can be ordered with a photocontrol or a 3 pin socket, along with a variety of pigtails. “Evluma is thrilled to be able to offer an IDA approved product for those customers looking for warm tone LED lighting that reduces light pollution,” said Cathleen Shattuck, Marketing Director at Evluma. “This is a great fit for residential areas near a national park or neighborhoods that have Dark Sky Initiatives in place. For parks or areas near the ocean these models are also available with our new anti-corrosion coastal package.”  Evluma also offers ConnectLED™, a BLE application that enables wireless dimming and disconnection for any Evluma LED lighting product.

The AreaMax has a 10 year warranty. With 20KV/10KA surge protection and Photocontrol Failsafe™ built-in the AreaMax is The Utility Standard. Put the “Light of the Country” to work for you! Evluma will be demonstrating the AreaMax at the TVPPA E & O in Chattanooga, TN, August 10-12, 2016, IES SALC in Hollywood, CA, September 18-21, 2016 at WEEC in Washington D.C., September 21-23, 2016.
