Focal Point wins two IES awards for lighting innovation in 2014
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently recognized Focal Point’s contributions with two awards honoring innovative products we introduced in 2014.
LED lighting is all about progress – and IES honors progress
In the last five years, lighting technology has advanced to the point where affordable, high-quality LED lighting is transforming the world before our eyes. For energy efficiency, aesthetics, comfort and versatility, the future of architectural lighting has never been brighter.
Lighting progress is fueled by market needs, but driven by science and art. That’s why the IES has been working since 1906 to advance the art and science of lighting through a wide range of programs, events, educational opportunities, scholarships and more. One of the organization’s premier initiatives is the annual IES Progress Report, which recognizes new products that have made substantial contributions in the past year.
Awards are given based on achieving “superlatives” – for example, being the first, only, best, smallest or most efficient – in a category of progress that significantly advances the art and science of lighting.
Focal Point’s LED luminaires earned two awards in this years’ IES Progress Report.
The ID® LED high ceiling downlight family earned its spot in the 2014 IES Progress Report based on:
Our ID LED high ceiling downlights reveal how LED technology can substantially reduce energy and maintenance costs without compromising on the clean appearance and comfortable lighting you envision for auditoriums, meeting rooms, lobbies and other spacious areas.
“The 8-in. ID LED High Ceiling Downlight offers the highest efficacy in an 8-in. downlight at 80 LPW. Field Changeable optical filters provide multiple beamspreads while various dimming options, lumen outputs, CCTs, and CRIs provide design flexibility.”

Small aperture MR16 downlights have long been a favorite for unobtrusive, high-quality architectural lighting. Now there’s an alternative that offers equivalent lighting quality with more versatile features and control – while saving 80 percent in energy costs and practically eliminating maintenance. That’s the beauty of our new ID LED 2.5" downlight family.
“ID LED 2.5" Adjustable family offers the highest efficacy in the low aperture downlight market at 79 lumens per watt. It offers five field replaceable optics as well as aiming to provide flexibility in the field.”
