The next wave of Gotham® cylinders has arrived. We’ve added a new cord unlike any other for the 4” and 6” luminaires, to complement the recently released cylinders.
But what makes these new cylinders so special?
Just take a look at it. It has a clean, aesthetically pleasing look – no odd geometric shapes or extra lines, and there’s a consistent diameter between the cylinder housing and surface gearbox (if applicable). It utilizes the same great chassis as the rest of our Incito™ and EVO® cylinder families.
But there’s something else in that design that we’re especially proud of: One single cord. Previously, for pendant cylinder applications (≥4”), manufacturers were required to provide two cords: one, for the wires, and two, a suspension cable to support the weight of the fixture. Our patent-pending design combines these two elements into one strong, ultra-pliable, color-coordinated 0.29” diameter cord that has it all.
That means that installers won’t need to worry about how to conceal or tether multiple cords together, and over time, the cord won’t kink or stretch, guaranteeing the luminaire is always on the intended focal point.
We’ve also included a hang-straight mechanism in the canopy, which allows the pendant to fit nicely into any flat or sloped ceiling (up to 45°) and always hang completely straight. The cord is field-cuttable to any length, allowing the installer maximum control on the job site.
Of course, this new mounting type comes with the same great features as the rest of the Gotham cylinders:
• 2.5 SDCM; 85 CRI typical, 90+ CRI optional
• Damp location standard; wet location option (WL)
• 20 standard colors in textured and gloss finish; custom or RAL colors also available (contact factory)
