Under Cabinet Lighting Under Cabinet Lighting Fixtures . Residential Landscape Lighting and Design offers commercial contractors and lighting designers a comprehensive inventory from which to obtain under cabinet lights and under cabinet lighting accessories. All of our under cabinet lighting fixtures are American made and will be drop shipped to any place within the United States designated by the client. This one source diversity allows architects and builders to rely upon RLLD as the source of any task or accent lights in kitchens, displays, cabinets, and work areas.
<ul><li>As energy costs rise, many contractors also come to RLLD for innovative power saving technology. Fluorescent under cabinet lights are more sophisticated and energy efficient than ever before. Halogen fixtures produce some of the brightest, glare free light available. Incandescent and xenon fixtures can produce lighting at a luxury level of quality, and LED under cabinet lighting brings both task and decorative lighting fully into the 21st century. </li></ul><ul><li>Fluorescent Under Cabinet Lighting. </li></ul>
<ul><li>RLLD also carries a full inventory of fluorescent under cabinet lighting fixtures that feature standard commercial and specification grade quality. These fixtures are regulated by electronic ballasts that produce a smoother flow of energy to the lamp and strictly regulate its consumption. This makes fluorescent under cabinet light fixtures some of the most energy efficient “high voltage” fixtures in the world of indoor accent and functional lighting. If you are making a proposal to a client who has retail grade fluorescent cabinet lights, or who has extremely old fluorescent fixtures, recommend replacing them as soon as possible. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Older magnetic ballasts and retail grade fluorescent fixtures manufactured overseas may begin to flicker or render color with a “yellowish” tint that ruins the aesthetics and can even cause headaches. Replacing these inferior and outdated fixtures with RLLD specification grade under cabinet fluorescent lights will significantly improve ergonomic color rendering, aesthetics, and employee comfort. It also makes sense to replace any retail grade or outdated fixture because inevitably it will fail at an unexpected and inconvenient time, resulting in maintenance and service costs down the line. RLLD fluorescent under cabinet lights are also a favorite among builders and contractors working on new apartments, townhomes, and condominium communities. These fixtures also make excellent kitchen cabinet lights because they combine a high level of light with an affordable cost of operation. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Halogen Under Cabinet Lights . </li></ul><ul><li>Halogen under cabinet lighting offers some of the most powerful kitchen lighting solutions on the market. They are fully dimmable, and they give cooks and hosts full control over brightness levels without detracting from decorative kitchen elements or food preparation. Cooking clubs normally prefer halogen under cabinet lights because of this. If your client prefers an under cabinet puck light, recommend an RLLD low voltage unit. These fully dimmable puck lights provide some of the brightest glare free lighting available on the market. This is due to a special frosting on the lens that produces a smooth distribution of bright light throughout the room. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Xenon Under Cabinet Light . </li></ul><ul><li>Xenon under cabinet lighting fixture provides a luxury level of illumination for residential and commercial clients. The most well known benefit of xenon under cabinet lighting is the combination of bright white light and long bulb life these versatile lamps offer. Xenon under cabinet lights normally last three times longer than halogen lights and emit no ultraviolet radiation. For commercial clients who need puck lights in work areas that are poorly air-conditioned, our low voltage xenon under cabinet puck lights shield workers from excess heat with special heat resistant plastic housing that keeps temperatures to a minimum and helps reduce HVAC costs. </li></ul>
<ul><li>LED Under Cabinet Lighting . </li></ul><ul><li>Using the world’s most sophisticated illumination technology, LED under cabinet lights need only 20% the power required by other forms of light. This is a special value for any business seeking LEED certification, and for the contractor proactive enough to recommend this technology as a key means to obtaining it. Similar to xenon cabinet lights, LED under cabinet lighting is 100% UV free, but the bulb life of an LED can be as high as 60,000 hours. LED under cabinet lighting offers the very best glare reduction and use only 1-watt of power. Because LED’s use diode semiconductors to produce light, neither high voltage nor low voltage under cabinet LED lights require any additional heat shielding or ventilation. RLLD even has LED under cabinet lights with special radial lenses and prismatic covers that brilliantly distribute light over work surfaces, and just recently we added LED illuminated shelves that combine under cabinet lights cabinet shelving itself. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Low Voltage Under Cabinet Light . </li></ul><ul><li>If your client is nevertheless hesitant to go with LED just yet, we can still save them an enormous amount of money by fitting incandescent or xenon lamps to low voltage under cabinet lighting strips. This reduces electricity demands and often extends bulb life up to 8,000 hours. Clients on tight maintenance budgets should be encouraged to go with low voltage under cabinet lights because they will significantly reduce replacement costs. Low voltage under cabinet lighting combines brighter light with lower bills, and halogen puck light fixtures designed with aesthetics in mind prove an ideal match for virtually any decorative display in the home, in the office, or even the conference room </li></ul>
