A successful Union: Art and technology
Our studio atmosphere is brightly lit for fixture assembly, our men and women take extreme precaution in handling all build materials by wearing surgical gloves and enforcing the highest standard for a clean and sterile work environment. These are the people responsible for turning the most extraordinary advanced technology into a reality; our engineers work hand and hand with our team to transfer the knowledge of materials. This collaborative workspace is the ultimate testing ground and provides the platform to ensure every fixture meets the Garden Light LED standard. Working together to deliver the best performance by working closely together as a team, the owner is the first to give an example of this work ethic.
Production and creating the luminaries
Garden Light’s LED fixtures are crafted professional; they are solidly machined and made of high-quality material. Designed to provide top performance, each Garden Light LED fixture is handcrafted and put through a rigorous, multistep, sequential testing process that allows us to view real-time performance data in a progressive light.
Every Garden Light LED fixture is the result of our uncompromising commitment to superior quality craftsmanship. Our hardline design approach integrates a focus on the smallest details and the most innovative technologies. All hardware, including screws, washers, and fasteners, used in Garden Light LED fixtures are made of stainless steel. Our glass lenses are ground to precision, not scored or cut to ensure a precise fitment to every shroud, creating a completely leak free seal.
Built with remarkable technology and intricate mechanisms, Garden Light LED optics have a very high lighting efficiency, with very little light lost. We use total internal reflection (TIR), which yields a very clean output, with none of the “hot spots” or sharp edges given off by reflector type lenses.
We proudly use award-winning LUXEON Rebel LEDs. Phillips integrated control systems are designed to provide top performance in every aspect. Garden Light LED’s superior line of fixtures produces the greatest quality of light, light output, and consistency and utilizes the most efficient thermal-management operating system.
Controlled Systems Technology
In order to provide our customers with the widest range of lighting opportunities, Garden Light LED is actively working to ensure our LED luminaires are fully compatible with industry-leading dimming controllers.
Garden Light LED is proud to announce that the following LED luminaires have been tested by Crestron and certified as 100% compatible with Crestron dimming controllers: Triple LED luminaires:
V3, V2, S2
Single LED luminaires:
MS (Mini Spot), MWL (Mini Well Light), MWW (Mini Wall Washer), S1 (Mini Saturn), and F9020, P1, P10, PL series path lights
Garden Light LED luminaires exhibit smooth, wide-range dimming on Crestron controllers. Complete testing reports can be found online at: https://www.crestron.com/resources/system_design_resources/lighting_fixture_compatibility/default.asp Select: Manufacturer – Gardenlight LED
Using Garden Light LED Luminaires with Crestron Controllers
To ensure your Garden Light LED luminaries can be easily integrated with a Crestron controller, always inform your sales person that luminaires will be used on a Crestron system when placing an order.
While many fixtures are manufactured in foreign countries, Garden Light LED proudly builds all LED products in our Tampa, Florida factory. Garden Light LED fixtures are the product of intense collaboration and are engineered, designed, and assembled in the United States, allowing us to maintain the purity of the Garden Light LED standard.
Sleek and strikingly appealing, Garden Light LED fixtures are easily recognizable in quality and design. Made with our remarkable technology, they are individually handcrafted and machined from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and C230 solid brass billets. Designed for function, they also feature performance-oriented efficiency and visual sophistication.
In the industry, durability and longevity of the surface coatings and base material is crucial. We chose 6061aluminum for its high resistance to corrosion and high acceptance of applied coatings such as enamel, anodize, ecoating. In addition, 6061aluminum is highly machinable, making it an excellent choice for computer numerical control (CNC) machining. In fact, 6061 aluminum is widely recognized in the aerospace, super car manufacture, military specification, and marine industries for these characteristics. These benefits, combined with aluminum’s naturally high thermal conductivity, make 6061 aluminum a perfect component for high-performance LED lighting fixtures.
For our high-performance line of brass fixtures, C360 brass was a natural choice because of its high thermal conductivity, which is close to that of aluminum, and its excellent ability to resist corrosion. The use of 360 brass ensures that all Garden Light LED fixtures operate within our tight thermal requirements.
CNC stands for “Computer Numerically Controlled” It allows us to “program” the machine using a coordinate system. After which the machine will read and cut out the part. The programs can be simple or very complex our V2 body for example is 28 pages of code. The machine cuts the part from a solid bar of material. Often times the machine removes over half of the materiel to create the part. The CNC machine can work autonomously once setup, in our case we can load bars into the “bar feeder” and it will keep supplying the machine with materiel until it runs out. By manufacturing in America, we have much better control over quality, demand, and executing changes. By using local suppliers of material, we can guarantee we get the high quality material that we specify.
Garden Light LED’s drive systems are a landmark along our path of excellence.
To really understand the drive system that harvests and distributes power, we must first understand current (i.e., power distribution) and amperage. Most manufacturers use a constant current of 700mA or .7 amps, but Garden Light LED incorporates many different drive currents to achieve diverse levels of light output.
Our engineers have been continually improving our advanced drive system for years, and Garden Light LED drive systems yield an unparalleled efficiency rating.
In each fixture, the highly complex power train is tucked away tightly, concealing a surprising amount of technology. LED technology components allow for innovations that are not possible with halogen bulbs. Garden Light LED’s fixtures are virtually indestructible and are specifically designed to work in tandem with the driving regimen. Particular optics allow for beam adjustability and a “point” source of light. With proper components and design, LEDs can last hundreds of thousands of hours.
Designed to provide top performance, each Garden Light LED fixture is handcrafted and put through a rigorous, multistep, sequential testing process that allows us to view real-time performance data in a progressive light.
