Calrad Electronics, a provider of a wide variety of specially engineered accessories and cables for electronics integrators, offers innovative LED strip lighting and controllers to meet an emerging industry need in the product category. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), LED lighting has emerged as one of the four top kitchen design trends in 2012. While compact fluorescent lights and other traditional incandescent bulbs are decreasing in popularity, LED lighting has been specified by 70% of NKBA designers over the past year. Calrad’s investment in producing favorable new products for those installers is an acknowledgment of their interest in manufacturing the best new equipment.
Calrad’s latest product is a water-resistant, five-meter LED strip reel with a thin form factor that can be cut, curved and tailored to any space. Patterns, colors and brightness can be customized using a paired controller for stunning visual effects that are perfect for home theaters, rack lighting, commercial spaces or outdoor accents. The LED’s produce little to no heat, have a high shock and vibration resistance, retain excellent brightness and have very low power consumption compared to traditional lighting.
“AVAD is excited to see brands like Calrad respond to industry trends by always improving, evolving and concentrating on bringing the best possible products to market,” said Hugh Hughes, Director of Merchandising at AVAD. “Their LED strip lighting makes customization, control and decor matching a seamless enterprise for integrators at an affordable price.”
