Ringdale's 10-Year LED Luminaire Warranty Covers Light Loss

Ringdale, Texas-based manufacturer of USA-made ActiveLED® luminaries, announced its unprecedented Performance Warranty, also dubbed the No Light Loss Warranty. ActiveLED fixtures carry a 10-year guarantee that the lights will not only function, but will not lose light levels or change color for 10 years.

The ActiveLED product­—with its overall design that includes patents in LED phosphor, LED cooling, and LED driver technology—addresses issues that typically cause lights to fail. "At Ringdale, we've been revolutionizing solid-state technology for over 30 years. We focus on manufacturing fixtures as a whole, including all of the internal components, and this results in better, longer-lasting lighting for companies. This warranty is a testimony to our robust design and one that no other manufacturer in the industry has achieved," said Klaus Bollmann, president of Ringdale and inventor of ActiveLED.

The No Light Loss Performance Warranty supports Ringdale's driving principle of delivering sustainable products made to be durable and long-lasting, thus breaking free of the consumption lighting model. The lights are guaranteed to deliver 90,000 light hours for maintenance-free performance.

Thermal management is a leading contributor to LED failure. ActiveLED uses superior heat sink designs and patented heat transfer technology to dissipate heat and minimize junction temperature. Keeping the junction temperature low allows fixtures to run cooler, last longer, and not depreciate. The product line's outdoor fixtures operate with full light output within a temperature range of -55°C (-67°F) to +55°C (+131°F) while indoor fixtures operate without light loss and within a temperature range of -40°C (-40°F) to +45°C (+113°F). Additionally, ActiveLED fixtures have an expected life under these respective conditions of more than 200,000 hours.   

Ringdale has been offering this unparalleled assurance to customers since 2008. "When we initially started the dialog of ActiveLED providing droop-free lighting, many felt it was another unwarranted claim," explained Bollmann. "But after five years of delivering lighting that has experienced no light loss—five years during which hundreds of customers have enjoyed durable, long lasting performance—we felt now was the right time to make a formal announcement. Our proof points are the successful installations performing in some of the harshest climates and the most demanding environments."

The Performance Warranty covers every ActiveLED fixture in a portfolio of over 200 commercial-grade luminaries for interior and exterior applications, such as streets, parking structures, building exteriors, warehouses, offices, retail spaces, sports lighting, restaurants and architectural accents.
