Curved LED Reduces Glare on Computer Screens

Alera energy manageAlera Lighting launched the Curv LED to reduce electronic screen glare from lighting in work environments. The Curv LED’s indirect distribution places light on ceilings and walls, minimizing reflections on the glossy screens of laptops, tablets and smartphones.

The fixture’s curve-shaped housing is designed to wrap around an inner die cast plate at each end. The solid housing provides 100 percent uplight, while the perforated housing delivers 94 percent uplight and 6 percent downlight.

Available in three color temperatures (3000K, 3500K and 4000K) and two nominal lumen packages (4,725 or 5,250) the Curv LED’s output sufficiently replaces two-lamp or three-lamp comparable T8 fluorescent products. The LED offers a projected 60,000 hours of life with 90 percent lumen maintenance.

The Curv LED is compatible with Hubbell Lighting’s wiHUBB wireless control technology.
