Orion Unveils New Ambient Temperature High Bay LED Fixture at Masonite in S.C.

Orion Energy Systems recently unveiled a new ISON™ Class LED lighting product, the ambient temperature high bay fixture, at Masonite’s South Carolina facility.

Masonite is a leading manufacturer of interior doors and entry door systems.

Wisconsin-based Orion Energy Systems, whose customers include 145 of the Fortune 500 companies, is one of the world’s leading energy management experts.

Orion replaced 660 inefficient, heat-producing, 400-watt high intensity discharge (HID) fixtures with just 368 sleek, cool-running, long-lasting 123-watt LED fixtures.

This bold, business-savvy retrofit will generate a decades-long economic boom for Masonite, which, based on current utility rates, projects to save $53,839.97 a year on electricity costs. Thousands of additional dollars will be saved due to no anticipated lighting maintenance costs for up to 20 years.

Through its products, technology, controls and expertise, Orion has saved its customers $1.8 billion, primarily on lighting electricity costs.

At Masonite, Orion installed the state-of-the-art ISON Class LED fixtures strategically throughout the 200,000 square foot facility. In about 25 percent of the facility, where line work and quality control inspections take place, the fixture swap-out rate was one-for-one. But in other areas, HID fixtures were removed and not replaced because of the efficiency of Orion’s ISON Class LED fixtures.
