DuraGuard Products’ Area and Site LED Lighting Fixtures Listed On DLC Qualified Product List

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 16, 2015

DuraGuard Products, Inc. announced today the addition of twelve DuraLED LED outdoor and indoor luminaires to the Design Lights Consortium Qualified Product List (DLC QPL). Included in the listings are their new architectural Hampton Series Area Lights and High Bays, along with several flood lights, wall packs and a canopy/garage lighter.

“We are pleased to make this announcement about the initial listings for our new DuraLED LED lighting line,” said Shannon Edens, Vice-President of DuraGuard. “We are continuing an aggressive program of submitting current products for DLC qualification, in addition to our on-going new product development that showcases our DuraLED LED technology.”

DLC qualification requires LED luminaires to undergo testing at accredited testing laboratories and the lighting fixtures must meet specific minimum or maximum requirements for lumen output, efficacy (lumens per watt), CCT (Correlated Color Temperature, or how warm or cold the light appears to the eye), CRI (Color Rendering Index, a measure of how accurately colors appear under the light) and zonal lumen density (the spatial distribution of light, useful in determining glare potential). The listed products can be found on the DLC website, http://www.designlights.org, and also are listed on DuraGuard’s website, http://www.duraguard.com/dlc-listed.

DuraGuard’s DuraLED lighting line features a robust LED array which has been custom designed to fit each fixture. It was developed to provide a unique platform for LED lighting, and is based on the principles of properly managed thermals and maximum optical performance.

DuraGuard utilizes 100% aluminum boards with copper tracings in order to maximize the heat dissipation required by LED’s in order to achieve their long lifespan of 50,000 hours or more. The DuraLED line has been designed to pass thermal testing at a minimum ambient temperature of 40˚C (104˚F), and most will pass at 50˚C (122˚F). This allows the DuraLED fixtures to be used in many more locations than LED lighting systems that meet only the minimum 25˚C (77˚F) ambient temperature requirement.

DuraGuard is a manufacturer of commercial and industrial lighting and electrical products, specializing in energy-saving technologies such as LED, Induction, Electronic HID and Fluorescent. DuraGuard was founded in 1989 in Vancouver, Washington, and now has its headquarters in Tampa, Florida. It has five USA warehouse and assembly facilities located in Vancouver, Washington; Tampa, Florida; Cerritos, California; Walden, New York; and Memphis, Tennessee; and one warehouse and assembly facility in Somerset, United Kingdom.

Peak Commercial Announces Successful Closing on Multifamily Units in Inglewood Area as Part of a 1031 Exchange Transaction


Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

“The Inglewood / LAX corridor is proving itself a new opportunity for commercial real estate investors,” states Kevin M. Levine, EVP of Peak Commercial (http://www.peakcommercial.com) referring to his recent transaction involving two multifamily assets in close proximity to LAX and Hollywood Park. Peak Commercial specializes in commercial buyer / seller representation in multifamily, retail, office building, industrial, land and REO commercial transactions. Levine notes increased interest from investors looking for new opportunities for expansion. The current sale, in Levine’s opinion “represents even more commercial real estate deals to be had in the Southwest Los Angeles sector.”

“The combination of available commercial inventory, Los Angeles Metro service expansion into the area, and renewed interest in building an NFL stadium on the site of the Hollywood Park Racetrack facility has drawn investors back to Southwest Los Angeles and has had a significant impact of commercial property values,” according to Levine. The multi-property deal includes adjacent multi-family units located at 10202-10206 S.10th Avenue near LAX, and a 12-unit complex on 921 N. Cedar Avenue closer to Hollywood Park with an average price per unit estimated at $ 140,000.

Peak Commercial represented the investor for the multifamily properties, facilitating the acquisition as part of a 1031 Exchange. The guidelines of a 1031 Exchange allow investors the ability to sell a property involved in a business transaction and reinvest the proceeds in a similar property to defer capital gain taxes. “Working with our buyer, we crafted a deal that not only included the acquisition of income property with amazing potential, but also maximized returns over the long term by mitigating tax liability.”

Peak Commercial is one of the entities in the Peak Corporate Network, headquartered in Woodland Hills, California. In addition to commercial real estate brokerage services, the Peak Corporate Network group of companies provide loss mitigation and workout services, residential real estate brokerage services, escrow services, 1031 exchange services, real estate financing, short sale services, foreclosure services and loan servicing.
