Cree, Inc., Durham, N.C., introduced new KR8 and LR6LED downlights, designed to deliver better lighting performance for new and existing commercial spaces.

The new KR8 downlight expands the KR Series by adding Cree’s first 8-inch downlight with Cree WaveMax and Cree TrueWhite technologies. This combination brings even more light through optical efficiency, precise beam control and long product life to higher ceiling applications. Additionally, the KR8 downlight covers most commercial and retail applications with 6,000 and 8,000 lumen outputs, and uses a unique dual optic design that enables beam angles as tight as 15 degrees.

The new LR6 downlight provides an unparalleled combination of light quality, simplicity and efficacy, delivering up to 1,800 lumens of exceptional light with superior color quality at a minimum CRI of 90. The downlight delivers up to 100 lumens per watt, using up to 89% less energy than the incandescent downlight it replaces and up to 58% less than a CFL. The LR6 also features Cree’s patented Flip-Clip technology that easily secures into most 6-inch IC and non-IC housings without the need for professional installers. The LR Series can be used in new construction for recessed or pendant lighting applications, and is available in warm or neutral color temperatures.
