OSRAM SYLVANIA Wins Lighting for Tomorrow Award
American Lighting Association Recognizes SYLVANIA ULTRA RT6 Gimbal LED Recessed Downlight Kit


Danvers, Mass. (Sept. 11, 2012) – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA today announced it has been honored with a Lighting for Tomorrow award by the American Lighting Association (ALA) for the SYLVANIA ULTRA RT6 Gimbal system, a six-inch diameter LED recessed downlight kit that is easy to install and an energy saving alternative to fluorescent, halogen and incandescent technologies.

Available in both 2700K and 3000K color temperatures, the 14-watt SYLVANIA ULTRA RT6 Gimbal kit emits 900 lumens, comparable to the output of 100-watt incandescent BR40 lamps, and dims continuously down to 20 percent.  The adjustable gimbal feature permits a smooth travel from nadir to a 35 degree tilt, making it suitable for slanted ceilings and wall washing.  The LED light engine provides high quality white light with an excellent color rendering (82+ CRI) and superior optical design, offering an excellent alternative for recessed downlights while reducing energy consumption by up to 86 percent.  The long life of the ULTRA RT6 LED kit, up to 25 times longer than incandescent lamps, will save countless trips up the ladder to replace traditional light bulbs.

"OSRAM SYLVANIA is honored to be recognized by the American Lighting Association with the Lighting for Tomorrow award for our LED innovations," said Xiaolu Li, Product Marketing Manager, OSRAM SYLVANIA.  "We share the goals of the Lighting for Tomorrow program to bring the most efficient, high-quality lighting solutions to the market."

Celebrating a decade of recognizing technology innovation in residential lighting, the Lighting for Tomorrow competition is organized by the ALA, the Consortium for Energy Efficiency and UL to stimulate the market for attractive, energy efficient lighting products for the residential market and are among the lighting industry's highest honors.
