Philips flattens the downlight with SlimSurface LED
October 15, 2014 - Royal Philips says it has flattened the downlight with the introduction of the SlimSurface LED family of downlights. With a 5/8-in. surface mount design that claims to be nearly flush with the ceiling, SlimSurface is designed for quick and easy installation to most standard junction boxes. It uses Edgelit technology, which puts LEDs at the edge of the fixture and uses a specially designed lens which promises uniform light distribution, similar to the Philips SlimStyle bulb. The series boasts reduced installation costs, Energy Star certification, up to 85% less energy usage than traditional downlights, and dimming down to 10%.
