SAN JOSE, CA — Guth Lighting’s just-released SUNDOWNER LED family of
wall pack fixtures leverages LUXEON Rebel LED technology to provide a neverbefore-
possible 60-degree beam spread in a dark sky housing, improving visibility
while also reducing the number of fixtures needed to cover a given wall expanse.
Guth’s new LUXEON-based wall packs also extend luminaire life up to seven
times, slash energy needs by 80%, support ‘green’ initiatives, and significantly
lower the total cost of ownership.
The new line consists of five models containing from 4 to 40
LEDs for scenarios ranging from doorway lighting to 20-foothigh
mounting applications. Instead of only illuminating the
ground like conventional wall packs, the fixtures take
advantage of the LUXEON LED’s physical and optical
properties to distribute light uniformly over a 60-degree field
for partial wall coverage. Benefits include:
• A 30% reduction in fixturing needs because a single
wall pack can light a wider area.
• Better visibility at wall level, increasing comfort and safety for passersby.
• Increased efficiency due to use of light traditionally blocked by the dark sky housing.
A detailed case study about the LUXEON-based Guth Lighting SUNDOWNER LED is now available
