ATLANTA - March 21, 2013 - Acuity Brands Inc. http://www.acuitybrands.com/LEDLighting.aspx (NYSE: AYI) has been honored with seven lighting industry awards including a "Best in Class" from the Next Generation Luminaires(TM) (NGL) Solid State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition. Distinctions were awarded to Peerless http://www.peerlesslighting.com/ (R) and Lithonia Lighting http://www.lithonialighting.com/ (R) luminaires during the 2013 LEDucation 7 Conference held on March 20th. The judges, comprised of industry peers, evaluated and selected the lighting industry's most innovative indoor lighting products. The Lithonia Lighting W Series LED Wall Bracket http://lithonia.acuitybrands.com/WSeries/W-Series.aspx was chosen "Best in Class" for excellence in quality, energy efficiency, dimmability, and aesthetic appearance and style among other attributes. W Series LED luminaires feature integrated controls that maximize energy savings in low-traffic or low-occupancy areas such as corridors, stairwells and restrooms. The luminaires automatically turn on or off as occupants move in and out of the areas. According to the NGL, the idea behind its organization is to make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to find LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. The goal is to recognize products that are not only attractive, but that are also energy-efficient and deliver good lighting quality. NGL judges also distinguished Acuity Brands with six "Recognized" awards granted for the following innovative LED luminaires: Round LED http://www.peerlesslighting.com/launch/Round/RoundBrochure.aspx luminaire by Peerless(R); Peerless® Mino LED http://www.peerlesslighting.com/launch/mino/minobrochure.aspx luminaire; Origami(TM) LED http://www.peerlesslighting.com/launch/origami.aspx luminaire by Peerless(R); I-BEAM® LED http://lithonia.acuitybrands.com/I-BEAM-LED/I-BEAM-LED-HOME.aspx high bay luminaire by Lithonia Lighting(R); IBH LED http://www.lithonia.com/commercial/led+bay+lighting.html industrial low bay luminaire by Lithonia Lighting(R); and Proteon(TM) SL http://www.lithonia.com/commercial/ptnsl.html#.UUN0h0ZDkUg linear pendant luminaire by Lithonia Lighting(R).
