LiteSheet Solutions elevates product reliability expectations with its ETL and DesignLights Consortium (‘DLC’) listed BriteCor VaporTight fixture

January 19, 2017 (Forest, VA) – LiteSheet Solutions (‘LiteSheet’) has introduced the industry’s latest darling with the BriteCor VaporTight (‘BVT’) premium grade fixture. This gasketed fixture sits at the top of leaderboard for its energy saving and high performance abilities. LiteSheet continues to push industry standards in regard to sustainability and reducing the world’s carbon footprint. The VaporTight series is fully patented and equipped with LiteSheet’s AC Direct BriteCor technology that eliminates the failure prone driver found in conventional LED lighting.

The BriteCor VaporTight is ETL and DLC listed proving the most efficient and reliable on the market.

LiteSheet’s BVT fixture has received professional industry feedback that it maximizes clean aesthetic lines and offers the greatest ease of installation and elimination of maintenance against its competitive set.

The BVT has been coined as one of the most reliable VaporTight fixtures when compared against the top 5 distributors of LED lighting products. One of the key differentiators is the reduction of costs due to its mounting system and tough diffusers, providing significant installation and labor costs savings.

The BVT fixture is designed for indoor and outdoor applications that require dust and water resistance. 20% of LiteSheet’s existing customer base has purchased the BVT as an add-on for adjacent parking garages, cold storage environments and new customers have purchased for agricultural applications and wet locations. LiteSheet has been contacted for bulk order installation within new construction and retrofitted locations because of its ETL approved AC Direct technology and DLC certification, which qualifies the fixture for energy rebates.

LiteSheet’s engineering team challenged standard specifications to ensure the BVT’s never seen before technology creates dramatic shifts in the marketplace. As a result, the fixture provides 450,000 hours MTBF of continuous operation. The company’s head of operations, Debbie Cebry, states, “the BVT has solicited the most positive response that we have seen throughout the testing process for its technological advances.”

The BVT continues to remain on pace with the rest of LiteSheet’s portfolio by offering constant lifetime output of over 120 lumens/watts. LiteSheet’s CEO, Roger Whyte, states that “this is only the beginning of what the marketplace can expect to see from LiteSheet as it relates to LED innovation and our dynamic product roadmap that we have planned for first half 2017.” Whyte has gone on record to say that, “unlike our competitors, we are offering first looks to our upcoming confidential product releases to any customer that contacts our team via sales@litesheet.com.”

As a result of LiteSheet’s extreme growth in the past 6 months, the company has recently moved into its new corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility located in Forest, Virginia. All LiteSheet products are available with warranties for up to 15 years backed by insurer Lloyds of London, fully patented and are 100% proudly manufactured in the USA.

Center for Advanced Engineering and Research Receives $1.36M Grant to Support R&D Efforts of LiteSheet Solutions in Bedford County

September 29, 2016 Forest, Virginia – The Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission (TRRC) recently awarded the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research (CAER) a $1.36 million research and development grant at their meeting in Wise, VA on September 20, 2016. This grant will be used to support the research and development activities of LiteSheet Solutions LLC, a privately held light-emitting diode (LED) company that produces the world’s most efficient AC Direct LED light engine. With the support of TRRC Phase I grant funding over the last 3 years, LiteSheet has opened a UL/MET and ETL certified manufacturing facility in in the Little Otter Industrial Park on Forest Road, just outside the Town of Bedford. Bedford, VA and begun hiring employees. It has developed, commercialized, and generated revenue on 11 UL Certified interior lighting product families (representing over 120 products), all of which are DesignLights Consortium (DLC) compliant. With this new Phase II funding LiteSheet will continue this work to develop exterior lighting products, advance the company’s IP technology further, install an additional manufacturing line, and move the company to a new building with more capacity for growth.

With the success of LiteSheet’s initial project in developing technology for product lines that have mainly focused on interior commercial-industrial applications both private and municipal customers have requested exterior lighting including street light cobra heads, parking lot lights, and exterior fixtures for buildings. LiteSheet’s technology provides a 50-year life span with significantly higher energy efficiency; the total cost of ownership is dramatically reduced to the customer. LiteSheet’s adaptive AC Technology is 30% more efficient than conventional LED technology reducing energy costs. In addition, labor costs to change/maintain the fixture are eliminated reducing liability from employee injury in maintaining the fixture. When extended to a street light for a busy street in a city, changing a light bulb becomes a more costly proposition—closing the street, renting/use of a scissor lift or bucket truck, insurance, permits, workers’ comp, the list of savings goes on and on.

“The CAER and Del. Kathy Byron from the Tobacco Commission have been great partners and without their assistance none of this would be possible,” stated Roger Whyte, CEO of LiteSheet. “This additional funding will allow us to continue to expand our product lines and to grow our presence in the region.”

“LiteSheet is an innovative manufacturer that represents the future of their industry”, said Delegate Kathy J. Byron, who chairs the Tobacco Commission’s Research and Development Committee. “They are exactly the type of firm we should be attracting to our region, bringing the jobs that will strengthen our local economy and provide more opportunities for our citizens.”

The historic Woolworth building in NYC uses LiteSheet Solutions to brighten its beautiful ceiling artwork

August 3, 2016 (Bedford, VA) –LiteSheet Solutions (‘LiteSheet’) linear Stik lighting is now being used to illuminate the unique and ornate lobby of the iconic Woolworth Building.

The LiteSheet E2 Stik product can be wired end-to-end for runs as long as 270 feet making installation simple and inexpensive. The BriteCor Adaptive AC Direct technology is maintenance free since there are no power supplies in the light with a lifetime of 45 years.

“Our E2 Stik provides more light output per linear foot than the halogen lights we replaced at a fraction of the power,” said Roger Whyte, LiteSheet CEO.  “The final installation runs on 60 Watts – replacing 600 Watts of existing lighting and eliminating the need to service the lights for years to come.”
