LEDs Magazine Names Tempo’s pr1meFX as a 2018 Sapphire Awards Finalist!

January 03, 2018

The Annual LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards recognizes industry leaders from around the world in LED and solid-state lighting.

Tempo’s pr1meFX has been recognized as a 2018 LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards finalist in the Indoor Ambient, Cove, and Accent SSL Luminaire Design category.

“Tempo is ecstatic to be considered a finalist for this prestigious award,“ says Terrence Walsh, president and CEO of Tempo Industries, LLC. “Our pr1meFX product is proving itself to be ideal for indirect illumination, while reducing overall infrastructure and construction costs.”

pr1meFX delivers glare and shadow free light from a system that is optimized to provide ideal indirect illumination. It is designed to substantially reduce infrastructure and construction costs by 50% or more by removing the need for wire runs and installing down lights in the ceiling. The result of using pr1meFX is an architecturally quiet ceiling that is completely free of visual clutter and uncomfortable glare.

Unlike traditional indirect lighting, this intuitive and easy-to-install advanced luminaire system mounts on the wall, in line with the top edge of the cove, and requires no in-field aiming or adjusting. The system comes complete with one-inch spacers every 12 inches that can be removed to allow the luminaire to adapt to any in-field cove length. Additionally, it is suitable for new construction coves or retrofitting existing coves.

This slim, high-performance luminaire system is so powerful and unique that it can deliver over 85% of the light out of a cove to provide high quality illumination. The system is designed to direct the light out of the cove and across the ceiling to provide 25 to 40 foot-candles at the working plane. If a high Light Reflectance Value (LRV) paint is used on the ceiling, the effect can be enhanced even more.
