These efficient LED roadway retrofits yield up to a 70% reduction in system energy requirements when compared to standard HID systems. With a life expectancy of 100,000+ hours, the roadway Retrofit offers more than 15 years of reliable service. These features significantly reduce maintenance frequency and expense.
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research studies show that simply shifting the color of lamps from the warmer yellow end of the color spectrum to the cooler blue end of the color spectrum, allows people to see things more clearly and spaces to appear brighter. By changing the spectrum to mimic daylight, lighting levels can be reduced to save energy while still achieving the same visual acuity.
Conventional roadway practices use lamps with a Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) of 2,700K. Our spectrally enhanced LED Cobra Luminaire doubles that with a CCT of 5,700K. The higher CCT of our fixtures causes the aforementioned shift in the color spectrum, translating to improved visual acuity and nighttime visibility.
