Press Release: A.L.P. Introduces LENA 16™, a Cost-Effective, High Performing, Low Profile Reflector

(Niles, IL) -A.L.P. Lighting Components, a leading global manufacturer of lighting components and kits, has added the LENA 16™ shallow prismatic reflector to the “S Series” of optics.  Designed for low-, mid- and high-bay LED fixtures, it offers superior glare control and an elegant aesthetic, combined with the versatility to accommodate a variety of light sources without expensive modifications.

The LENA 16 has a shallow design, optimizing cost without sacrificing high angle brightness control.  The 10.36” flat top allows it to be easily adapted and directly attached to many fixtures. The lower flange works with a wide range of bottom lenses and standard clamp bands.  The top can be cut to order with an opening of up to 10.66 inches.

Like their HID predecessors, today’s LED low-, mid- and high-bay fixtures should always be installed with optical or refractive control.  Without this control, they emit high angle glare, causing a reduction in contrast and negatively affecting color and focus.  By reducing high angle glare, LENA 16 improves visual comfort, provides even illumination, and can also increase worker efficiency in some settings.  It is suitable for warehouse, industrial, commercial, and retail applications.

LENA 16 is available in Clear Acrylic, Clear Polycarbonate, Interface Acrylic, and Lumieo® Acrylic.  It works with a wide range of LexaLite® brand bottom lenses.

A.L.P. is a leading global supplier of lighting components, offering a diverse line of products and services for lighting OEMs and the aftermarket. From LED to legacy applications, A.L.P. offers the industry’s most comprehensive line of LED fixture kits, vapor-proof enclosures, unwired fixture bodies, louvers and reflectors. A.L.P. Brands include Steel Craft, LexaLite®, and Reflek®

Kurt Puffpaff Takes on New Responsibilities for A.L.P. LexaLite®

A.L.P.’s Kurt Puffpaff, National Sales Manager, will be taking on new responsibilities following the departure of LexaLite® Brand Product Manager George Kruggel on 2/28/2020. With nearly three decades of experience in the industry, Kurt has extensive knowledge of plastics and lighting technology to support sales activities for the A.L.P. LexaLite line of proprietary optical molded components. These products include the Reflexor® series of injection molded reflector/refractors, Sentry Series vaportights, Platform Series LED fixture kits, and The Lindy® post-top refractors.

Kurt has been in the lighting business since 1993 when he started as a territory manager for LexaLite. In keeping with the company’s philosophy, he learned the business from the ground up. In addition to managing his territory, he was taught how to prepare quotes, run equipment, and even delivered a few orders by truck when the business depended on it. Since those early days, Kurt has held several sales management positions with LexaLite, A.L.P. and Bill Brown Sales. Accordingly, he is uniquely equipped to support the business requirements of our customers now and in the future.
