ORA Partners with Sustainability Leader Lindsley Lighting

Clearly, specifiers are increasingly demanding transparency in the materials and lifecycle of products, along with efficiencies and recycling in every step along the life cycle. ORA is excited to partner with Alan Lindsley, AIA, LEED GA; Karen Jess-Lindsley, MBA; and the entire Lindsley Lighting team, bringing their made-in-America products to the New York City metropolitan lighting community.

Lindsley Lighting takes a sustainability-forward approach to modernist LED lighting fixtures, and it all begins with minimalism. The low profile of LEDs combined with timeless designs results in contemporary sconces and cylinders for both indoors and out. “Our aim is to minimize the carbon footprint of our fixtures from development through recycling. As new technologies and information emerge we will continuously look for ways to lighten the impact of our fixtures,” said Founder and Chief Design Officer Alan Lindsley. Lindsley requires that all products and manufacturing processes be RoHS3 compliant, an EU standard that eliminates toxic substances.

A huge variety of cylinders from 1 inch to 4 inches in diameter provide up to 3000 lm for workhorse lighting and high ceilings. Choose standard body heights starting at 6.5 inches or any custom height all the way up to 60 inches! There’s stem and cord pendants, of course, but the Tule surface mount seamlessly attaches to ceiling, while the slimmer Reed has a knife-edge flange that blends in, or an optional mud ring.

The proprietary real rust finish in their Reed CorTen-ish collection, must be seen in person. Each fixture is slightly different, which only adds to the natural beauty of the finish. Fun to design with and still highly sustainable, HLO Drop Lens Constellations, in anodized or powder coat, are amazing statement pieces.

ORA Announces New Manufacturer-Partner Helios

ORA is pleased to announce that longtime friends and colleagues from Helios Lighting have chosen us to represent their flexible and cost-effective lines of downlighting throughout the New York metropolitan area. Helios prides itself on 7 decades of experience in continually improving downlighting and “being the easiest lighting manufacturer to do business with at every step of the lighting purchase.”

Spec-grade downlights and cylinders from Helios come in both round and square apertures and feature field-configurable color temperatures. Designers can choose 3000K, 3500K, or 4000K on the jobsite, either before or after installation. Lumen packages can be specified up to 3000 lm for higher ceilings, and almost all offer a lensed wallwash optic as well as emergency and 1% dimming options. And yes, there is a 6-inch trim UL-listed for wet locations.

We are delighted that this new ORA-Helios partnership will strengthen Helios’s existing client relationships in the region and introduce new customers to Helios quality and frictionless service.
