EnvironmentalLights.com Adds New Line of LED Under Cabinet Lighting
New Modular Premium LED under cabinet lighting system features easy
plug-and-play technology, soft diffused lighting, flawless dimming
performance and interchangeable accessories.
a leading online resource for high-quality, energy-efficient LED
lighting systems, recently added a premium line of modular LED under
cabinet lighting to their growing line of LED under cabinet lighting
systems. The Environmental Lights Modular Premium LED under cabinet
lighting line features three interchangeable lighting options: Ultra
Thin LED light bars, Angled LED light bars and surface mount LED puck
“This new plug-and-play system makes it easy for anyone to create sleek
and professional quality LED lighting projects in their home or
business, without hiring a professional electrician,” said Lauren Rueda,
Product Engineer. “We provide all the compatible connectors, dimmers and
power supplies you need, plus we have created a detailed product
installation document that shows you exactly how to build a system to
fit your space.”
All Modular light products include built in diffusers to evenly
distribute the light and eliminate hotspots, which is optimal when
installing lights above reflective surfaces such as granite. Both the
Ultra Thin and Angled LED Under Cabinet Modular light bars have built in
switches, for easy individual on/off control, and come in three lengths:
12, 20, and 40 inch.
This UL-listed LED under cabinet line is perfect for smooth dimming and
elegant diffused lighting, all in a thin package that fits in tight
spaces just about anywhere you might need light. The lighting is
available in two hues of white, soft (3,000°K) and neutral (4,000°K).
Soft white bars create approximately190 lumens per foot and the neutral
white ones create 200 lumens per foot.
“We recommend soft white lighting for residential use and neutral white
for businesses,” said Alicia Cheng, Director of Product Development.
“Color temperature plays an important role in creating ambiance for a
space. Warm light (2,700-3,000°K) promotes relaxation, whereas cool
light (4,000-6,500°K) promotes energy and focus.”

Ultra Thin & Angled LED Light Bars
Ultra Thin LED light bars will hide behind the lip of almost any cabinet
facing because they’re only 0.3 inches thick, including the mounting
clip. These products are much thinner than conventional under cabinet
lighting and will fit places no fluorescent or xenon can. LEDs also run
much cooler than xenon or halogen so you don’t have to worry about heat.
Dimming under cabinet lighting is easy and inexpensive with the
compatible modular dimmers designed specifically for the Modular LED
under cabinet lighting system. Or, you can select a 48, 96 or 288 watt
24 Volt DC Dimming Power Supply for a fully scalable solution that can
be used to customize larger installations in retail stores, museums,
grocery stores and other locations.
“The line includes two options for dimming and controlling bar and puck
lights,” explained Cheng. “We also offer a master switch that can
control all Ultra Thin LED light bars all at the same time, which
provides the convenience to turn multiple bars in series on and off
The Angled Modular Under Cabinet Bars are perfect for 90 degree corner
installations and provide perfect lighting at an angle. All lighting
components are UL listed in U.S. and Canada.
LED Puck Lights
Modular Surface Mount LED puck lights are 3.5 inches wide and only 0.3
inches thick, so they are a great option for creating light in a tight
space like in a cabinet corner. They are very energy efficient,
consuming only 3 watts per puck, and they have integrated milky diffused
cover plates to provide uniform light and eliminate hot spots.
“The LED optics disperse the beam at 90 degrees,” said Rueda. “This
makes them perfect for brightening up functional work areas, kitchen
counters, closets, display cabinets, anywhere extra light is needed!”
Modular LED Connectors & Splitters
The Environmental Lights Modular LED under cabinet lighting system
includes easy-to-use accessories such as connectors, cable extensions,
splitters, in line dimmers, and touch dimmers. These interchangeable
components make it easy to install and provide great design flexibility
to the system.
Connector cables can be used to link bars in various different
orientations for additional light output. The limit on one branch is 20
feet. Splitters can be used to link multiple branches to a single power
source. Due to their female input, a male-to-male cord must be used to
connect each puck light or bar to the 4 or 8-way splitter.
“We also offer a DC Junction Connector that allows you to customize the
wiring of your installation,” explained Cheng. “Simply trim the input
wires to the required length, then plug the DC Junction Connector into
your Ultra Thin light bar for seamless wiring.”
