LED canopy fixtures offer high-performance in a slim profile


Integrating high-performance optics and durability into a slim profile, MaxLite presents LED recessed canopy fixtures as a sleek upgrade to energy-efficient lighting for fuel stations, convenience stores, banks and other drive-through locations. 

The easy-to-install luminaires replace incumbent HID fixtures with more than 70% energy savings and virtually no maintenance, providing critical cost savings for businesses that operate 24/7. Delivering a market-leading efficacy of 126lm per watt, the canopy fixtures consume less than 100W, but deliver 11,795lm of bright white light that optimises motorist and pedestrian safety. Rated to a lifetime of 120,000 hours at L70 standards, the fixtures are offered with a 10-year limited warranty and lifetime product support. The canopy fixtures are DesignLights Consortium (DLC)-qualified and may be purchased with utility rebates from select programmes nationwide.

While most fuel station fixtures require a two-person team to install, MaxLite LED recessed canopy fixtures are designed to enable a single worker to complete the job. The driver enclosure is designed with an aircraft cable that suspends the fixture, so that a single person can mount the drivers on the top of the canopy first, and later return to install the fixture. The luminaires may be recess-mounted to any canopy with round or square cutouts measuring between 3.9 and 9.8” wide. The fixtures install with minimal punctures to the canopy, and gaskets are provided to cover the holes, for a seamless update that keeps the aesthetics of the canopy intact.

Balancing LED technology with the functional demands of outdoor lighting, the IP66-rated fixtures are constructed of a durable, die cast aluminium housing and shatter-resistant tempered glass lens that can withstand the harsh effects of year-round weather extremes. The fixtures are engineered to operate in a temperature range of -40F to 122F.

“Our canopy fixture design makes it easy for station owners to update their facilities to a much more efficient and contemporary-looking light source,” said Francisco Garza, Product Manager, MaxLite. “By switching to LED, they can increase the quality of illumination while reducing their energy costs by 70%. While the form factor represents a fresh take on canopy lighting, the real beauty of the fixture lies within the simplicity of its installation and maintenance.”
