Nora GU24 CFL housings for 13W 18W 26W self-ballasted lamps
By Anthony Capkun
Nora Lighting says it has introduced the industry’s first CFL GU24 family of housings and trims that accept interchangeable, self-ballasted GU24 lamps in 13W, 18W and 26W. The NHIC/NHRIC GU24 CFL Series includes six downlight models with 4-in., 5-in. and 6-in. apertures—all designed for new construction and remodelling. The self-ballasted CFLs feature electronic instant-starts and promise “no-flicker” performance. Some lamps deliver up to 15,000 hours of service and offer up to 75% energy savings over incandescents. Because the ballast is part of the lamp, a new ballast is installed with each relamping. The airtight fixture is Energy Star-rated and approved for insulated ceilings, and cUL-listed for damp locations.
