SMART Bi-Level Parking Garage Fixture by EverLast(R) Selected
for Lighting Near Major Shopping Malls
JACKSON, Mich., June 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Heights at
Eastwood located in Lansing, Michigan, features over sixty upscale
fashion retailers, home furnishing shops, and a variety of dining
opportunities for its Lansing community. This year Eastwood underwent a
major expansion and amid inviting gathering spots, broad sidewalks and
attractive landscaping, visitors will notice that their shopping and
dining experiences are enhanced as a result of entirely new lighting.
Steve Hayward, the Executive Director of Lansing Township's DDA,
partnered with Wesco Distributing, West Michigan Lighting, and Superior
Electric of Lansing to complete this effort. The overall occupant
response to the recent lighting install was very positive.
"This was a new construction job so there were several different
criteria that had to be taken into consideration in regards to
lighting. Originally, the expansion was specified with the Limelight
System. That system is not practical, not cost effective, and not that
energy efficient," commented Deborah Perkins, Sales Representative of
West Michigan Lighting. "We selected the EverLast(R) SMART fixtures
because of performance, energy savings, ease of the control, warranty,
and the fact that it was U.S. -- Michigan Made."
Superior Electric installed over 300 EverLast(R) Bi-Level Parking
Garage fixtures in the Heights at Eastwood. The U.S. Made Parking
Garage Fixture utilizes enhanced optics, improving fixture efficiency
30% and increasing overall light distribution by 35%. In addition, the
EverLast(R) Parking Garage Fixture incorporates SMART Bi-Level
technology, stepping down the fixtures to 40% when the area is vacant
for a set length of time, and then steps back up upon occupancy. This
technology creates the perfect lighting necessary for improved
pedestrian safety in parking facilities, and energy efficiency for the
building the fixtures occupy.
"Wesco is a premier provider of electrical, construction and general
MRO products and is recognized as one of the largest, most responsive
distributors in the electrical industry. In order maintain our
reputation; we only select the absolute best products on the market,"
stated Troy Trimbach, Lighting Specialist of Wesco Distributing. "We
chose EverLast(R) for this job simply because they provide an energy
efficient alternative over HID. Performance, life expectancy, and
warranty are additional incentives our experienced lighting experts
"The primary reasons that we chose to go with EverLast(R) were energy
efficiency, and light distribution. Throughout the process we had
compared the EverLast(R) fixtures to 3 or 4 dozen different types of
fixtures with WESCO on the site. Even though some fixtures were
cheaper, the overall efficiency coupled with the bi-level sensor
satisfied all of the needs of our facility making it an easy decision.
The aesthetics of the EverLast(R) fixtures help give the Heights an
entirely new feel, in addition to energy savings and lowered
maintenance costs," commented Hayward.
