IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tempo Industries, LLC a leading manufacturer of superior-quality scalable modular and linear LED lighting solutions with a 25-year lighting industry success record, today announced its new Creszendo line of wall-mount luminaires. The attractive wall sconce takes a unique approach to the challenge of providing functional variation and consistent lighting with a single, highly-aesthetic design. Scalable in 6" increments, the fully electronic low-voltage (ELV)-dimmable luminaire can be configured with smooth white or translucent fluted diffuser lenses and provides outputs ranging from 147 lumens for the standard output 9" model, to over 2100 lumens for the high-output 63"configuration. Available correlated color temperature (CCT) choices initially include 3500K neutral, 2700K warm and 2200K ultra-warm white.
According to Tempo president, Terrence Walsh, "The Creszendo was inspired by the expressed desire of our customers for an attractive and functional solution that could be readily scaled and configured to a variety of uses within a single property. Due to the requirement of smooth dimming to very low levels in many commercial sconce applications, current solutions are almost exclusively incandescent, which operate at very low efficiency and require frequent re-lamping. The Creszendo embodies an 'engineered elegance' that directly addresses those customers' needs for an efficient, low-maintenance, long-lived solution that delivers both scalability and appealing aesthetics."
Typically mounted in a vertical orientation, an easy-to-envision application is a sloped-seating theater setting, where a longer, brighter sconce is required to illuminate the taller front of the theatre, while progressively shorter, lower-output configurations scale the illumination, and look, evenly to the back of the space. Standard configurations include lightly frosted acrylic lenses on both ends that add to the sense of even illumination from the stylish luminaires. The breadth of scalability of the product family, along with horizontal mounting options, allows the aesthetic design to be carried throughout a facility, including hallways and reception areas, and is meeting with wide acceptance in entertainment, hospitality and Class-A commercial property applications.
Key features of the Creszendo series:

"As the dominant player in theater safety and accent lighting, Tempo has decades of real-world experience in settings that demand solutions that are both commercially-effective and attractive," stated Mr. Walsh, concluding, "When you add that experience to our 15-year No Factory in the Field track-record in LED lighting, it's clear why the market has established Tempo as a company that sets the standard for quality LED-based scalable lighting solutions."
