OAKLAND, N.J., Sept. 11, 2015 /CNW/ -- Amerlux® introduces the Rook LED pendant family, a line that translates the control, performance and comfort of downlights into a sophisticated new format. Offered in 3.5-inch (Rook 350) and 4.75-inch apertures (Rook 475), these pendants pair perfectly with the Hornet HP Downlight and Evoke 4.5" Downlight.
"The Rook is perfect for creating drama and focused light in reception areas, office environments and retail spaces," explains Amerlux CEO and President Chuck Campagna. "It reduces costs, enhances beam control and maintains design integrity across all of our pendant lines."
A warm, welcoming and modern design, this striking high-style Rook 350 Pendant re-imagines the Hornet HP Downlight line in a popular new pendant form. It's a versatile solution for open ceilings, with the same 3.5-inch aperture and driver as Hornet HP Downlights and yet its own distinctive personality shines through. The stunning, aluminum pendant is constructed of extruded aluminum and features a die-cast trim and an extruded aluminum heat sink. The Rook 350 with a 6.5-inch height is available in 14 and 21 watts while the 11.5-inch tall Rook 350 is available in 16 and 18 watts. The Rook 350 is offered in a variety of color temperatures: 2200K, 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, with a CRI up to 97 and a lumen output of 1323. CrispWhite LED Technology is also available.

The Rook 475 Pendant translates the control, performance, and comfort of Amerlux downlights into a sophisticated new format. The Rook 475 pairs perfectly with the Evoke 4.75" Downlight and is perfect for creating drama and focused light in reception areas, office environments, and retail spaces. The Rook 475 reduces costs, enhances beam control, and maintains design integrity across all of our pendant lines. The extruded aluminum pendant is constructed with a spun aluminum upper optic reflector and spun aluminum anodized lower reflector cone. The Rook 475 is offered in heights of 12 and 12 7/8 inches and offered in 14, 19 and 27 wattages.
