Arcalux Corporation, headquartered in Houston, Texas, designs and sells florescent lighting systems, the SmartFixtureâ„¢, that deliver economic and aesthetic benefits including: reducing overall operational cost by maximizing energy efficiency and reducing installation & maintenance costs; as well as enhancing commercial space by providing a family of aesthetic and engineering options not available in the marketplace.
Arcaluxâ„¢ was born of the recognized need for a new kind of fluorescent lighting system. Technology for housing fluorescent lighting in place today has remained virtually unchanged since the 1940's, despite numerous changes in lamps and ballasts. Arcaluxâ„¢ founder, Mark Welker, began with the assumption that any technology that had not changed in 60 years was ripe for improvement. After a number of years working in the industry, he designed and built the Company's first product, a modular, energy efficient and versatile fluorescent lighting fixture, the SmartFixtureâ„¢, to address the unmet needs of building owners, facility managers and end users. SmartFixtureâ„¢ can replace existing luminaires of a similar size or be used in new construction where 2' x 4' luminaires would normally be installed. Basically, the SmartFixtureâ„¢ can be used in lieu of the 2' x 4' luminaires used today for task and general activity lighting in many commercial, educational, retail and institutional buildings.
In addition to the 2' x 4' design of the SmartFixtureâ„¢, Arcaluxâ„¢ is also developing designs for the recessed direct/indirect, 2' x 2' and 1' x 4' luminaires while incorporating the patent pending technology of SmartFixtureâ„¢.
Using the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDÂ®) guidelines as its baseline, Arcaluxâ„¢ is committed to sustainable building design and providing a positive effect on our environment through its innovative products. Three key features have been brought to the forefront through world-class engineering which makes the SmartFixtureâ„¢ a welcomed addition to our Earth: (i) when the SmartFixtureâ„¢ is installed and later relocated or modified, normally only 2% to 5% of this luminaire will be removedâ€¦these parts can also be stored and reused affording nearly zero landfill impact; (ii) lamps and ballasts last longer again reducing landfill impact; and (iii) the SmartFixtureâ„¢ is always shipped in biodegradable packaging with low mercury content T8 and T5 lamps. SmartFixtureâ„¢ has the potential to help end users capture more LEEDÂ® credits than any other lighting system on the market.
Whether considering a lighting system for new construction or an existing facility, the versatility, energy and maintenance saving capabilities of the SmartFixtureâ„¢ lighting system makes it the right choice. As lamp and ballast technology continue to evolve, the SmartFixtureâ„¢ can be readily adapted to meet future changes.
