Acuity Brands’ Healthcare Lighting Expanded Surgical Suite Lighting Portfolio

Sep 12, 2011  
Recently in the official press release Acuity Brands, Inc. introduced the Healthcare Lighting® Surg5™ surgical troffer luminaire. The Surg5 luminaire is the newest addition to the Healthcare Lighting® OR/Surgical Suite product line. While lighting in high-performance areas of a hospital are, in general, exempt from energy usage calculations, the Healthcare Lighting® Surg5, delivers consistent high-quality lighting while providing significant energy savings and overall ease of maintenance. Fairview, PA based Healthcare Lighting was acquired by Acuity Brands in May 2011.
Designed to provide supplemental lighting in surgical suites, surgical troffer luminaires are usually mounted in arrays surrounding the perimeter of the operating table. The Surg5 luminaire is designed to deliver the equivalent light output of a 6-lamp fluorescent troffer while requiring only 5 lamps. The elimination of one lamp within the fixture also allows a design with more accessible placement of the ballast for faster and more cost-effective maintenance. Typical surgical troffers require the removal of all lamps and reflectors to access ballasts. In the Surg5 luminaire, these components are readily accessible on each side after simply opening the sealed door frame and removing the tool-free ballast tray covers. The lamps stay in place during ballast maintenance, reducing the risk of glass breakage, which is especially important in a critical-care area of a hospital. The potential savings in both energy and maintenance costs makes the Surg5 a notable advancement in surgical troffer luminaires.
“Acuity Brands’ focus on delivering a better quality of lighting aligns perfectly with Healthcare Lighting’s long-standing commitment to address the very specific needs of healthcare professionals and their patients,” said Steve Day, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, Healthcare Lighting. “Our luminaire products, including the OR/Surgical Suite Surg5, are designed with the direct inputs of healthcare professionals, evidence of how our focus on delivering the specific lighting requirements healthcare facilities need results in better lighting options for our customers,” Day added.
All Healthcare Lighting products, including the new Surg5 are available nationally through the Company’s sales representatives and authorized distributors. For additional information, please visit the Acuity Brands ( and Healthcare Lighting ( websites.
