Tru-Slim Hardwire/Direct-Wire LED Picture Light, Satin Nickel, 12" (Tru-Slim Hardwire/Direct-Wire LED Picture Light)

Tru-Slim Hardwire/Direct-Wire LED Picture Light, Satin Nickel, 12" (Tru-Slim Hardwire/Direct-Wire LED Picture Light). Picture lighting, if nothing else, must be resilient: should the guiding fires of one's art lights fail, all meaning upon the canvas will be lost, with artwork reduced to but a shadow of itself. A gallery must always be awash in rich picture lights, never subject to the ever-draining cells of battery-operated art lights or the unwieldy and fallible cords of AC power frame lights. Thus has Cocoweb crafted the its series of Hardwire Tru-Slim Art Lights, our premier museum-grade picture lighting fixtures: these ultra-slim picture lights wire directly into junction boxes, powering their advanced Picture-Perfect LED art lighting systems with an ever-reliable source of electrical input. Modest Design Focuses upon Art The Hardwire Tru-Slim is a culmination of artistic service: designed to not distract from displays, this fine art light has the slimmest shade possible at a mere 7/8 of an inch thick. The elegant brass accents on the black shade are the perfect complement to art of any style.Picture-Perfect LEDs Bring the Canvas to Life The power behind this art-centric design lies with Cocoweb's Picture-Perfect LEDs: 12 low voltage LED nodes produce light in a soft white-yellow glow measured at 2700K color temperature, a warming illumination similar to the sun in the early morning. Full accentuation is available under this light as it has a Color Rendering Index of 90, bathing reds and yellows into a deeper hue and soothing blues and greens into softer relaxation. This newfound fullness is protected through low heat operation and ultraviolet-free light, protecting paintings from both discoloration and cracking.Wires Directly into the Wall for First-Rate Reliability The key high-end feature of this art light, however, is its hardwired functionality: in order to assure steadfast illumination for one's gallery, the Hardwire Tru-Slim connects directly into junction boxes and thus is always supplied with an electrical current. And though a minor technical installation is required, the consistency of illumination gained by this arrangement is strictly museum grade, offering greater reliability over battery operated and AC power art lights. And to cement its reputation, the Tru-Slim's LEDs also are able to last for up to 50,000 hours, providing light at a full 420 lumens for the subsequent 20 years following installation.Energy Efficiency Preserves the Environment To combat the excessive power use that consumes the lighting industry, the Hardwire Tru-Slim runs in complete energy efficiency: powered by only 6 watts of electricity, the LEDs in this lamp save 80-percent more electricity in comparison to the incandescent bulbs that otherwise dominate the art lighting scene. Such a reduction amounts to savings in both the environment and the cost of operation, and when adding in the fact that Cocoweb LEDs also contain none of the mercury required in incandescent lighting, the Tru-Slim clearly emerges as the leader in clean lighting technology.
