Access Fixtures Unveils An Extensive Line of Amber LED Luminaires
"As the world becomes more aware of, and consequently more protective of, the environment, demand for lighting that does not have a negative impact on wildlife is increasing. We've built an entire category of wildlife-friendly lighting to satisfy that demand," said Access Fixtures' CEO, Steven Rothschild.
Wildlife-friendly LEDs are classified by the color of the light they produce. The light is set to a specific wavelength of 590 nm to produce a soft amber color that is not visible to animals. Light pollution—the hazy glow surrounding thickly settled areas—has been the cause of environmental disruptions for many species such as bats, birds, and even human neighbors. In coastal areas, the bright white lighting of typical luminaires is dangerous for sea turtles, as they use the white ambient light of the moon to head toward the ocean once hatched.
All wildlife-friendly amber LED luminaires are long-lasting, with a rated life of 100,000 hours, and are energy efficient. Customers can now choose from a variety of available amber LED products for their outdoor lighting needs. In addition to architectural wall packs and bollards, Access Fixtures has added high output flood lights, full cut-off wall packs, high bays, and sports lighters to its line of products.
