OSRAM SYLVANIA Helps Reduce Light Trepass and Provide High Quality Light With Environmentally Preferrable ProPoint™ LED Outdoor Luminaires
State-of-the-art LED Technology Combined with Elegant, Efficient and Functional Fixtures for a Variety of Outdoor Applications Shown at Greenbuild 2012

San Francisco, CA and Danvers, Mass. (Nov. 14, 2012) – Committed to providing robust LED solutions from components to fixtures, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is demonstrating the OSRAM ProPoint™ series, a line of outdoor LED luminaires that provide uniform, high quality light everywhere it is needed, at Booth #2009S at Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building.

The ProPoint series has options that significantly reduce energy, replacement and maintenance costs. These products can assist towards achieving LEED® points both for energy optimization by reducing energy consumption, and for light pollution reduction by minimizing light trespass and reducing sky-glow and the impact on nocturnal environments. ProPoint luminaries are assembled in the United States, lowering transportation costs and reducing transportation-related emissions.

Recognizing the growing need for control and flexibility in outdoor lighting applications, OSRAM SYLVANIA developed the dynamic ProPoint series to offer more energy-efficient, longer-life alternatives to traditional outdoor lighting sources and fixtures, while adding improved controllability and design. OSRAM SYLVANIA solutions continue to be at the forefront of lighting technology and the ProPoint series meet a wide range of outdoor application needs.

The ProPoint series is continually growing and currently includes ten luminaire types, ranging from roadway to street, area and parking lighting applications. The current ProPoint luminaire series includes the Small Cobrahead, Shoebox, Streetscape – Post Top, Streetscape – Pendant, Medium Round Canopy, Medium Square Canopy and Small Wallpack luminaires. ProPoint Wallpack luminaires are a new addition to the product line, and ProPoint MRC and MSC luminaires with integrated controls will be available soon. 

OSRAM ProPoint LED Outdoor Luminaires offer easy maintenance and installation.  The luminaires have a rated life of 50,000 to 70,000 hours, reducing the frequency of maintenance even further compared to traditional lighting technologies. ProPoint luminaires offer up to 66 percent in energy savings over traditional luminaires, including metal halide (MH) and high-pressure sodium (HPS), making ProPoint luminaires incredibly efficient outdoor lighting solutions. Many ProPoint luminaires are available in multiple power levels, color temperatures and distribution patterns, ensuring flexibility for practically any outdoor lighting application. Many of the ProPoint luminaires are Design Light Consortium (DLC) certified including most of the Post Tops, Pendants, Medium Round Canopy, Cobrahead and Shoebox, qualifying these luminaires for available utility incentives to reduce the initial cost of installation.
