DMF Lighting, a manufacturer of residential and commercial LED downlight products, received two awards at the 27th edition of LIGHTFAIR International (LFI).
DMF Lighting captured the Technical Innovation Award for its OneFrame—an LED housing designed for multifamily buildings, assisted living facilities, apartments, condos, dorms and hotels. The company was also the Recessed Downlights Category Winner.
“We’re happy and excited that the judges saw the value and benefits of our products,” says Susie Minton, DMF’s director of Marketing. “We work hard to develop products that suit our customers’ needs and try to make them simple as possible to work with and install.”
The LFI Innovation Awards saw 275 entries spanning 15 categories, with each submission judged by an independent panel of lighting professionals.
Providing LED downlighting for multifamily applications presents serious challenges. But DMF has a solution with the OneFrame. The design features bar hangers that pivot for either horizontal or vertical mounting and easily locks horizontally into place with just a screwdriver.
OneFrame is equipped with a floating height module to ensure perfect alignment even with varied ceiling thicknesses up to two inches. The frame exceeds expectations. Because of its design, there’s no need for costly fire-rated boxing as the OneFrame is fire rated for two hours. Plus, the frame has Sound, Air Tight, IC and Wet Location ratings.
Complementary to the OneFrame is DMF Lighting’s DRD2 LED. Today’s builders are moving towards LED lighting as it’s less expensive, easier to maintain and renders color more accurately than conventional lighting. The DRD2 takes a backseat to no one.
The DRD2 LED is a 93+ Color Rendering Index, two-step SDCM LED that offers exceptional long life (50,000 hours), as well as vivid color and a range of hues. Color temperatures range from 2700K to 4000K. In comparison with conventional light sources, the operating cost of the DRD2 LED module is considerably less and can realize up to 88 percent in energy savings.
The unit is easy to specify, easy to install and the Twist & Lock feature allows for easy, tool-free installations and seamless integration of multiple trim options. Trim shapes are available in both round and square. The DRD2 module is backed with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
DMF Lighting also offers the DCC2 LED Cylinder, which produces a combination of precision illumination and elegant aesthetics. The versatile DCC2 is available in surface, stem, cord or wall mount options and two different lumen outputs, as well as wet location variants. It is suited for a wide-range of interior and exterior applications, including residential, multifamily, hospitality and retail.
