NGL Winners for 2016: Kju Circle, M60 LED My White, and Inula Bollard

Selux is proud to announce new releases Kju Circle, M60 LED My White, and Inula Bol­lard have all been rec­og­nized by The Next Gen­er­a­tion Lumi­naires (NGL) for 2016. The win­ners were announced at the awards event during LIGHT­FAIR® Inter­na­tional at the San Diego Con­ven­tion Center in San Diego, CA on April 26, 2016.

A rare occur­rence for NGL to have mul­ti­ple win­ners from one man­u­fac­turer, Selux impressed the judges with two prod­ucts in the Indoor NGL Com­pe­ti­tion.

Kju Circle has been rec­og­nized in the Pen­dants” cat­e­gory. The judges com­mended the color qual­ity, dim­ming and aes­thet­ics of this dec­o­ra­tive pen­dant lumi­naire, com­ment­ing good color,” very smooth dim­ming,” and clean shape and edge.”

M60 My White has been rec­og­nized in the White-Tun­able” cat­e­gory. The judges praised the dim­ming and color con­trol fea­tures of this lumi­naire, remark­ing smooth color change and dim to low” and bonus for color con­sis­tency while dim­ming.”

For the Out­door NGL Com­pe­ti­tion, Inula Bol­lard was rec­og­nized in the Bol­lards” cat­e­gory. The judges were impressed with the solid con­struc­tion, good glare con­trol and even light dis­tri­b­u­tion of this bol­lard. Some of the com­ments included good design for a vandal resis­tant bol­lard” and good glare con­trol and dis­tri­b­u­tion.”

Spon­sored by the U.S. Depart­ment of Energy (DOE), the Illu­mi­nat­ing Engi­neer­ing Soci­ety, and the Inter­na­tional Asso­ci­a­tion of Light­ing Design­ers, NGL was launched in 2008 to encour­age tech­ni­cal inno­va­tion and pro­mote excel­lence in the design of energy-effi­cient LED lumi­naires for com­mer­cial, indus­trial, and insti­tu­tional appli­ca­tions.

The judg­ing panel selected the lumi­naires on the basis of color, illu­mi­nance, glare con­trol, light dis­tri­b­u­tion, dim­ming con­trol, ser­vice­abil­ity, value, and appear­ance. The judg­ing ses­sion was con­ducted at the facil­i­ties of Intel­li­gent Light­ing Cre­ations out­side Chicago, Illi­nois in Feb­ru­ary 2016 for indoor light­ing, and at the Vir­ginia Tech Trans­porta­tion Insti­tute in Blacks­burg, Vir­ginia in March 2016 for out­door light­ing.

As LED tech­nol­ogy and prod­uct design have evolved, NGL require­ments have become increas­ingly demand­ing. The NGL bar is set high, and the tires get kicked often and hard,” said DOE SSL Pro­gram Man­ager Jim Bro­drick. So when the judges award a prod­uct, you know it was well earned.”
