ATLANTA, November 12, 2021 – Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) announced today 12 architectural lighting luminaires representing the company’s Aculux®, A-Light™, Eureka®, Gotham®, Holophane®, Hydrel®, Juno® and Luminis® brands were selected as 2021 Product Innovation Award (PIA) winners by Architectural SSL magazine. The PIAs recognize innovative LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market, while also spotlighting the players behind the components that make up these light sources.

PIA winners include:

Aculux:  AX4 Series LED Downlights deliver up to 3200 lumens while offering multiple precise beam options. This comprehensive family of downlights, adjustable and wall wash luminaires provide industry best cutoff and glare control to deliver quiet ceilings that inspire.

A-Light:  Align Series luminaires are an easily specifiable and highly configurable lighting system designed to accommodate the changing needs of any indoor space. The magnetic modules come with multiple light and mounting options, and with tool-free installation and removal capabilities.

Eureka:  Expo luminaires takes tube lighting beyond the basics. The luminaire is designed for flexible installation in a wall or ceiling surface mount, in any orientation, or in suspension. Its simple minimalist shape opens the door to a variety of standard applications, such as bathrooms, corridors, or transitional spaces.

Knit luminaires feature a thermoformed shade made from sound-absorbing recycled PET felt that increases acoustic comfort in a space. The pendant is intended for areas where noise is a concern, including high or unfinished ceilings, open offices, or corridors with a hard floor finish.

Mill luminaires are designed to absorb sound and reduce ambientnoise in modern spaces with high ceilings or hard surfaces. Fifteen felt blades create a cylindrical shape, which traps and absorbs sound within the luminaire’s hollow column.

Quadrant Pendants highlight a discreet Mika 4230 diffusor by redefining its volume and scale. Lighted versions (4232) or the versions without light source (4232U) can be used alone or combined to create impressive layouts, while multiplying the sound absorption. Available in 3 sizes.

Gotham:  EVO®/Incito™ 2” Tilt & Rotate Cylinders convey a single visual idea across various applications. Multiple mounting options translate to greater control over where light is desired. Adjustable pendant and surface mount cylinders tilt up to 90° with 365° head rotation, and adjustable wall mount cylinders tilt up to +50° and down to -20° with +/-45° left/right rotation from vertical.

Incito™ 4” Direct-Indirect Wall Mount Cylinders represent the first direct-indirect luminaire in the Incito™ family. Combined with new accessory options, the line facilitates grazing, creating contrast, and bringing depth to vertical surfaces to achieve desired lighting designs.

Holophane:  GlasWerks® LED Luminescent Series is designed to replace 50-400 watt HID fixtures. This 3rd generation GlasWerks LED family of outdoor pendants provides customers with reliable lighting solutions that are visually pleasing by day or night. The GlasWerks line offers flexibility in multiple shapes with traditional, transitional, or contemporary styling.

Hydrel:  SAF Floodlights offer smooth edges and a minimalist design to deliver a powerful lumen output and precise distributions. Suitable for a variety of mounting applications including ground, wall, pole, and stanchion. Taper-lock technology provides full aiming integrity using both a rugged knuckle and yoke design.

Juno Trac: T388L Vertical Cylinder Track Head offers a fresh take on the traditional aesthetic. This 55W state-of-the-art track fixture delivers up to 5550 lumens making it ideal for high ceiling and long throw applications. It is up to 80% more efficient than equivalent halogen with an LED life rating of 50,000-hours. It is available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K color temperatures and 80 CRI, 90 CRI or SpectralWhite versions.

Luminis: Bellevue luminaries offer a single, modern rectilinear design for projects requiring any combination of direction lighting, glare control in high traffic areas and street lighting. An exterior space landscape lighting multitasker that makes a strong, consistent design statement while offering all the functionality the space dictates.
