Long-lasting LED technology results in reduced maintenance and disposal costs.

ATLANTA - September 11, 2012 -The Lithonia LightingR VTLED Relight assembly kits from Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) feature long-lasting LEDs with a service life of up 50,000 hours, reducing maintenance requirements and disposal costs compared to conventional lighting. The VTLED kits' advanced LED light engine and driver consume less energy than older, less energy-efficient lamps.

VTLED Relight kits can be assembled completely below the ceiling plane. Universal end brackets and a one-piece plug-in light engine, coupled with a below-ceiling assembly capability, make the VTLED kits simple and quick to install. Kits are available in both 2' x 4' and 2' x 2' configurations.

"The VTLED Relight assembly kits are a high-quality, affordable, attractive and easy-to-install solution for lighting renovations," said Dave Ranieri, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager, Indoor Lighting. "The enhanced lighting experience from the VTLED Relight kits gives the appearance of a complete lighting redesign while using far less material and labor costs as compared with installing new fixtures."

The VTLED Relight kits create balanced and uniform illumination by eliminating shadows and cave effects for an enhanced aesthetic appeal. The kit's reflectors soften and distribute light into the space while minimizing luminous contrast between the fixture and ceiling. Sloped end plates provide a smooth transition between fixture and ceiling. Advanced optical film provides superior LED concealment and even illumination across the diffuser.
