  • Tue, 03/08/2011

MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Visa Lighting's new Sleight fixture has been recognized as a winner of the 2010 Next Generation Luminaires Design competition for Wall Grazing. Only 33 entrants were recognized out of the 140 reviewed. 

The Sleight is part of Visa Lighting's new Mystique Collection of architecturally integrated LED Wall Luminaires. Visa Lighting is committed to providing thoughtful, reliable and inspiring LED solutions. This collection furthers Visa Lighting's aim to create products that are sustainable, easy to specify and budget friendly.

The simple edge-lit form of Sleight provides performance illumination in a low profile package. While only protruding from the wall 1 3/8", it makes it ideal for narrow corridor spaces. It is designed to mount on the ceiling or wall with vertical or horizontal orientations.The decorative, wall grazing product integrates to the architectural design with either surface mount or semi-recessed with mud-in frame versions. Sleight is a low energy LED luminaire with optional 0V-10V LED dimming in installations with remote power supply. Multiple units can be interfaced with a single power supply and class II wiring.

To simplify installation, the Mystique Collection was created with input from contractors. For recessed models, a recessed back box design secures to drywall, eliminating the need to frame-in the back box and has the option to be shipped ahead with a disposable cover that doubles as a wall opening guide for contractor preparation. Two remote power supply units are available for the Mystique Collecion. Remote power supplies have an integral plenum compatible connection box with terminal blocks to connect multiple class II cables. Mystique models use terminal blocks or crimp connectors for class II cable termination. For convenience, wiring supplies are available through Visa Lighting.

Visa Lighting was recognized in the Indoor Wall Washing category in 2009, winning with the Advantus Linear LED.

The Next Generation Luminaires is jointly organized by the Illuminating Engineering Society, the International Association of Lighting Designers and the U.S. Department of Energy, represented by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
