Appleton® Mercmaster™ LED Low Profile Luminaire Wins "Harsh and Hazardous" EC&M Product of the Year ROSEMONT, IL (MAY 4, 2017) - Emerson's Appleton Mercmaster™ LED Low Profile Luminaire has been awarded 2017 Product of the Year in the Luminaires (Harsh and Hazardous Location) category by Electrical Contracting & Maintenance (EC&M) magazine, the authority for electrical professionals in the industrial and commercial space. The Appleton Mercmaster™ LED Low Profile luminaries are specially designed for hazardous and industrial lighting applications where mounting heights are typically under 15-feet. With a profile of only six inches, the installed depth is nearly 25
percent less than its nearest competitor and consumes 65 percent less energy than a standard High Intensity Discharge (HID) while delivering up to 5,000 lumens of uniformly distributed light in industries that include chemical, petrochemical and waste water processing. Four replaceable globes provide for adjustable levels of diffusion and light spread to allow one fixture to be effectively used for many different applications, such as
stanchion walkway lighting, platform lighting and even higher mounted lighting under pipe-racks, with reduced glare or hot spots. Because these luminaires can be used comfortably and effectively at low mounting heights, they eliminate the need for ladders, which have been prohibited by OSHA
regulations, or expensive adjustable maintenance lighting poles and stanchions. "We are honored that the EC&M panelists recognize the unique way that our design
