Gallery System Announces LED Lighting for
Energy-saving, long-life bulbs excel in commercial and institutional applications; provide 33 percent cost-of-ownership savings over 10-year period
WELLESLEY, Massachusetts, June 6, 2011 – Gallery System, a leading provider of picture-hanging systems for commercial and home use, today announced the availability of LED bulbs for its integrated lighting fixtures.
Gallery System is one of the few art-hanging systems to offer integrated lighting capabilities. Sleek lighting wands snap into the system’s wall-mounted hanging rail, and use safe 12-volt electricity to provide precisely positioned, gallery-quality illumination. Both LED and halogen bulbs operate without creating excessive heat, eliminating the risk of damage to the artworks on display.
“The new LED bulbs pay several dividends,” noted Ron Orner, Director of Gallery System Art Displays. “They consume 75 per cent less electricity than our halogen bulbs - just 5 watts per bulb, compared to 20. This greatly reduces energy bills in new or existing installations. The LED bulbs also have a rated average lifetime ten times as long as the halogens, or 50,000 hours, so you save on replacement costs. And if you’re setting up a new installation, the LEDs’ lower power consumption allows you to save money by using fewer transformers and junction boxes.”
Orner said a typical user running their lighting system eight hours a day, six days a week, would realize a total cost savings of a full 33 percent after 10 years, or about 7 percent after five years. These savings increase when the lighting is operated for longer periods, or if electricity prices go up.
Both LED and halogen bulbs are available through the Gallery System website, www.gallerysystem.com. The LED bulbs are sold with a three-year guarantee against premature failure.
