Selux M36 LED My White and Kju Square are both “Outstanding” winners at the 2015 Indoor NGL Competition

The sev­enth annual Next Gen­er­a­tion Lumi­naires™ (NGL) Solid-State Light­ing Design Com­pe­ti­tion has rec­og­nized 28 com­mer­cial LED indoor and out­door light­ing prod­ucts for excel­lence.

The win­ners were announced at the awards event during LIGHT­FAIR® Inter­na­tional in New York, NY, on May 3 – 6, 2015.

The 2015 Indoor NGL Com­pe­ti­tion focused on con­trol­la­bil­ity and ser­vice­abil­ity. The win­ners include 20 lumi­naires that were Rec­og­nized,” with nine of these sin­gled out as Out­stand­ing,” Selux M36 LED My White and Kju Square among them.

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 March 2015.

Here’s an excerpt from the win­ners press release:

As LED tech­nol­ogy and prod­uct design have evolved, NGL require­ments have kept pace, becom­ing more demand­ing with each pass­ing year. It’s not an easy feat to achieve NGL recog­ni­tion,” said DOE Solid­State Light­ing Pro­gram Man­ager Jim Bro­drick. The judges are a tough-minded bunch who look for every flaw imag­in­able and don’t issue their stamp of approval lightly.”

The Out­stand­ing win­ners in the Indoor com­pe­ti­tion came from seven man­u­fac­tur­ers and cov­ered four cat­e­gories. Selux Cor­po­ra­tion received Out­stand­ing for Dim­ming for its Kju dec­o­ra­tive pen­dant lumi­naire and Out­stand­ing for Ser­vice­abil­ity for its M36 LED My White color-tuning lumi­naire.

By encour­ag­ing new designs and tech­nolo­gies, the Next Gen­er­a­tion Lumi­naires com­pe­ti­tion aims to increase market accep­tance and aware­ness of LEDs for gen­eral-illu­mi­na­tion light­ing.”
