Kichler Lighting
– New product line features energy efficiency, easy installation and placement flexibility –

INDEPENDENCE, OHIO (August 12, 2020) – Kichler Lighting LLC,  a leader in innovative lighting and ceiling fans, introduces Direct-to-Ceiling (DtC) LED Downlights. Inspired by the recessed lighting trend, DtC offers a sleek and flush-to-the-ceiling look with style versatility, energy efficiency, easy installation, and placement flexibility. Backed by a 5-year limited warranty, these DtC fixtures are equipped with a tethered driver and snap-in clips, eliminating the need for a mounted junction box. They are also dimmable, airtight, and can be used in contact with insulation. The complete DtC line is Title 24, Energy Star® FCC Part 15B compliant and cETlus safety rated for wet (Slim, Recessed) or damp (Gimbal) locations.

Offering accent lighting with reduced glare in various new construction and renovation projects, Kichler Lighting DtC options include:

  • Slim: True to its name, this ultra-slim profile is a literal snap to install and uses edge-lit technology to present a glowing, evenly dispersed display of ambient light.
  • Recessed: Simply installed without a can or separate junction box, this multi-tasker uses spring clips to snap into place. The trim adds a stunning style while the recess eliminates glare for a gorgeous glow.
  • Gimbal: Designed to provide a 360-degree rotation with 30-degree max tilt, this low-profile, easy-to-install fixture adjusts to create a wall wash or focal accent while highlighting a special piece of art or fireplace.
“At Kichler Lighting, we strive to provide a whole home solution and help simplify the buying process for our customers,” says Jim Reginelli, Vice President, Product and Engineering, Kichler Lighting. “With the introduction of Direct-to-Ceiling Slim, Recessed and Gimbal LED Downlights, we can offer an increased breadth of energy efficient, stylish indoor lighting options to ensure project success.”
