BURNABY, BC--(Marketwired - March 25, 2014) - Cooledge Lighting, Inc., an LED lighting technology company, announced today that it will debut its flexible light sheet technology and launch European operations next week at Light+Building in Frankfurt, Germany.
Simultaneous with the product launch in Europe, Cooledge Lighting has established Cooledge Lighting, GmbH in Munich, Germany and a sales and marketing office in Hamburg, Germany to support existing and future European customers.
"We are thrilled to bring Cooledge's flexible light sheet technology to the European marketplace", said Wade Sheen, CEO of Cooledge Lighting. "Establishing a European presence is a natural step for us as we continue to grow as a company."
Having previously received a CE mark for its light sheet system, European interest has been growing since the initial product launch one year ago.
"We have seen an excitement and adoption that is simply unprecedented", said John Campsmith, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Visitors come to Light+Building expecting to see the latest products and technologies. We are proud to be showing what we believe to be the next step in the evolution of LED lighting."
Light+Building is the world's biggest trade fair event for lighting, architecture and building-services technology and takes place in Frankfurt, Germany between March 30 and April 4. Cooledge will be showing its innovative flexible light sheet products at Booth C61 in Hall 4.0.
Cooledge light sheet provides high quality lighting with luminous efficacies of up to 140 lumens per watt and over 100,000 hours lifetime to L90. The light sheet utilizes a highly dense pattern of LEDs on a thin plastic substrate, delivering on the promise of OLEDs with the reliability and performance of LEDs.
Light sheet's unique form factor permits large panels, long lengths and the ability to conform to a wide variety of shapes, eliminating many of the constraints and challenges imposed by existing LED systems. Luminaire designs using the light sheet can be fluid, thin and minimal in design as well as allowing unique material choices. Based on Cooledge Lighting's patented technology, this new medium of light requires no heat-sinking or thermal management and inspires a wide range of unique and novel luminaire designs.
Cooledge light sheet comes in various sizes having widths from 28mm (1.1") to 280mm (11") and lengths up to 10m (30'). These linear sheets are available in nominal one-foot standard lengths and can be custom configured to luminaire manufacturer requirements. Light sheet is fully dimmable with standard commercial dimmers and is a class-2 low voltage component, allowing for ease of integration and design. The product is RoHS/REACH compliant and carries a 5-year limited system warranty.
About Cooledge Lighting Inc. -- Cooledge is a venture backed start-up focused on delivering high value solid-state lighting solutions to the general illumination market. Founded in 2009, Cooledge launched its product line of a flexible LED light sheets at LIGHTFAIR International 2013 in Philadelphia, PA, April 23-25, 2013.
Cooledge, along with its luminaire manufacturer partners, sees the opportunity to redefine the geometry of light as an important next step in the evolution and use of LED lighting technology. Cooledge's unique light sheet technology will change the way lighting is applied to space by blurring the line between lighting equipment and the architectural space.

“Oh, dev is dev and ops is ops, and never the twain shall meet.” With apoloies to Rudyard Kipling and all of his fans, this describes the early state of the two sides of DevOps. Yet the DevOps approach is demanded by cloud computing, as the speed, flexibility, and scalability in today's so-called “Third Platform” must not be hindered by the traditional limitations of software development and deployment. A recent report by Gartner, for example, says that 25% of Global 2000 companies will b...
