Beacon Products Introduces Drive Edge-Lit Family of Parking Garage Luminaires

Hubbell Lighting
Greenville, SC – September 16, 2019Beacon Products is primed to improve the parking garage experience for visitors, facility managers and electrical contractors by introducing the new Drive Edge-Lit series of luminaires. Drive has been designed to provide a seamless blend of visual comfort, performance, integrated controls and accessory options in an elegant and low-profile form factor that is easy to install.

Drive Edge-Lit provides a balance of visual comfort and photometric performance in two sleek housing sizes with a wide range of lumen outputs and photometric distributions. The family is equipped with a standard lens that has been specifically designed to offer significant visual comfort, ensuring these luminaires are the ideal solution for parking garage and canopy applications.

By offering the compact SRT1 and the large SRT2, Beacon Products can now offer a strategic scaling solution across the footprint of a parking facility. Lighting designers and electrical contractors demand complementary product families that allow design continuity and proportion throughout a project, and both Drive luminaires can scale where and when necessary.


Drive offers significant uniformity to meet and exceed IES recommended requirements for drive lanes, parking areas, stairwells, entrances and exits. Lumen outputs range from 2,500 to 16,000, with the SRT1 offering 2,500 to 6,000 Lumens and the SRT2 offering 4,000 to 16,000 Lumens at up to 135 Lumens per Watt.

Drive also features high ambient thermal protection to protect the luminaire components from failure in high temperature environments.

Visual Comfort

Drive works to further enhance visual comfort with an optional uplight up to 800 Lumens. This option eliminates the unwanted “cave effect” and alleviate contrast concerns that ultimately lead to decreased light uniformity.

Specially designed acrylic light guides provide a blended, non-pixelated distribution across the entire surface area of the Drive lens for visual comfort and glare reduction. This lens helps “soften” the light with zero pixilation.

Drive has been designed with ease of installation in mind. Surface, pendant and trunnion mounting options are available, each with a special quick mount feature built in. Both luminaires are lighter than competitive products, the SRT1 is only eight pounds and the SRT2 is 15.

As with many of the new Hubbell Lighting products that have been launched in recent months, Drive features integrated controls from standalone sensors, wired and wireless lighting controls.

Features and Benefits of the Drive family include:

  •     Control options featuring photocontrols, motion sensor, occupancy controls, NX Distributed Intelligence™ and wiSCAPE®
