Toronto, Ont. and Danvers, Mass. (October 4, 2011) – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is known for delivering exceptional quality, high performance products to offer sustainable solutions across all applications. Committed to sustainability in both technology and design, OSRAM SYLVANIA is pleased to introduce its latest innovation in LED downlighting, the SYLVANIA cRT6 Recessed Downlight Kit, an ideal downlight solution with powerful light output.

The SYLVANIA cRT6 is a six-inch LED recessed downlight, optimized for new construction and retrofit applications, including retail, hospitality, office, healthcare, property management and security lighting. The SYLVANIA cRT6 can be quickly and easily installed into most standard six inch cans, including Insulated Ceiling (IC) and non-IC cans, airtight cans and IC cans surrounded by insulation.

The SYLVANIA cRT6 utilizes the highly dynamic technology of the PrevaLED™ light engine to create high efficiency white light, featuring color stability and a high color rending index (CRI). Two high lumen packages are available for the SYLVANIA cRT6 and both offer correlated color temperatures (CCT) of 2700K, 3000K and 3500K. The lower wattage option delivers 650 lumens using just 11 watts of energy and the more powerful SYLVANIA cRT6 delivers 1,000 lumens at just 14.5 watts.

In addition to its high lumen output, the SYLVANIA cRT6 offers a CRI greater than 90 and an R9 rating of more than 70. Additionally, an active color management system maintains color consistency for the SYLVANIA cRT6 throughout its long life rated at 50,000 hours. The SYLVANIA cRT6 is also dimmable up to 20 percent.

The SYLVANIA cRT6 is available with integrated white trim and a medium base socket adaptor. It has been tested and certified to UL and ENERGY STAR® standards and exceeds California Title 24 high efficiency luminaire requirements.
