NEW YORK – Senior executives from both IDEAL Industries, Inc. and Armstrong World Industries recently announced an agreement to market a commercial lighting system that can lower customer energy use by 35-40 percent and provide the unprecedented ability to rapidly and effectively reconfigure office, industrial and retail spaces. The new system combines Armstrong’s low voltage DC FlexZone™ ceiling suspension system with IDEAL’s new Audacy™ wireless energy management technology.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the biggest player in commercial ceilings to bring an incredibly smart commercial energy management solution to market,” said Nick Shkordoff, Vice President and general Manager of IDEAL Electrical, a division of IDEAL Industries, Inc.
“There is growing commercial demand for both energy efficient and flexible commercial lighting and energy management systems,” said Joann Davis-Brayman, Armstrong’s Vice President of Global Marketing.
Both companies are active members of the EMerge Alliance, an open industry group creating standards for the use of direct current (DC) power that better facilitates the use of site-based power generation. The new offerings are intended to support the organization’s vision for Net Zero energy use in commercial buildings.
