Archdale, North Carolina January 20, 2015

Häfele America Co., a leader in LED lighting technology, is introducing their third generation of Loox lighting with more than a dozen new products to provide cutting-edge solutions for designers. The collection features products ideal for unique applications such as cabinet and drawer lighting along with diffused glow features. The premiere line-up will allow designers to expand their creativity with a range of styles available in various brightness and temperatures as well as several new switching and dimming options.

“As LED lighting technology continues to evolve, Häfele remains on the forefront of developing innovative new ways to brighten any space,” said Jeff Ratkus, product manager for Häfele. “The new line-up includes new solutions for cabinet and drawer lighting, and the latest in “diffused glow” – perfect for use with high-gloss surfaces such as polished granite.”

The Lighting Design Service from Häfele is a convenient offering that allows designers to receive fully tailored lighting layouts detailing the Loox components they’ll need to achieve their vision for a space. Whether the need is task lighting for a kitchen prep area or mood lighting under kitchen cabinets, Häfele has a solution to fit every need.

Diffused Glow Technology
For even illumination and a smooth glow, the third generation of Loox lighting includes a broad range of new lights that offer diffused glow technology to perfectly disperse the concentration of light. This results in a pleasant yet functional ambiance that makes people and surfaces look their best.

Interior Cabinet and Drawer Lighting
When was the last time you opened a refrigerator without interior lighting? Unless you have a faulty light, hunting around a dark refrigerator is nearly unheard of. But why are cabinet and drawer interiors left in the dark? Häfele developed the Loox LED lighting system to specifically address the unique challenges associated with integrating lighting into cabinetry so users can easily see and access what’s stored inside. Additionally, the Loox lighting system provides a whole new range of options for adding accent or mood lighting above cabinets, under toe kicks as well as other areas throughout the home. Smart technology options include motion detectors, touch-free dimmers, sensor switches and other advanced features to meet user needs.

Warm Color Temperature
LED lighting is a leading trend and for good reason – long life, dimming options, even light emission, low voltage, economic value and energy-efficiency. Häfele offers warm color temperature LED lighting that enlivens a space and eliminates the harsh white color that can sometimes happen with LEDs. Space that calls for cooler temperatures such as industrial and commercial spaces, are also well-suited by the Häfele portfolio since there are warm and cool temperature offerings for most every product.
