Holophane® Tear Drop LED drives new performance levels with Gen 3 Upgrade of the family

The Tear Drop LED family from Holophane has just been upgraded to provide improved energy-saving performance and other exciting enhancements to the product line. A new Gen 3 light engine boasts an 28% performance boost over the previous gen 2 product. This means you can now choose lumen packages from 6,000 to 34,000 lumens with up to 159 LPW. The Tear Drop LED portfolio from Holophane provides a simplified, energy-saving lighting experience that helps you to greatly reduce operational costs and carbon footprint.

In addition to increased performance the Tear Drop LED family offers a new frosted, tempered flat glass, zero-uplight optic designed to provide a visually comfortable solution for preserving the night skies. So, whether you are looking for this cutoff distribution, or prefer one of the three traditional prismatic glass drop refractors (sag, bowl or teardrop shape), this exciting family can meet and exceed your needs.
