LED technology has brought about new innovations and more options in the lighting industry. Manufacturers are constantly coming out with new products that give the consumer more options.
One of those recent innovations: Color and wattage selectable LED fixtures.
It's happening again. One of our manufacturing partners has stopped making a lighting product, specifically compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs).

You bought a new UV product or series of products and you're ready to disinfect your building. But how do you know if the products you spent thousands of dollars on really work?
Scientists have known about the disinfection capabilities of ultraviolet (UV) light for decades. Now, it's considered an important tool in the fight against COVID-19.
A scientist at Columbia University found UV-C is effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in laboratory settings.
If you're responsible for maintaining a business or commercial building, this can be a very uncertain time. COVID-19 has changed the way all of us operate. Your building may either be closed, reopening, or overrun with people. Regardless, there is one thing that's top of mind: the health of everyone who uses your building.
