More lighting news just keeps on rolling in for the upcoming CEDIA Expo 2023. Perhaps best known for its modular downlighting solutions in the CI channel, DMF lighting has most recently announced its series of enhanced iX luxury lighting products integrators. Exclusive to the CEDIA channel, this new product line will be on display at DMF’s booth (Booth 4112) at CEDIA Expo 2023.
DMF Lighting’s iX series includes True Spectrum light modules that clock in at an impressive 98 CRI (out of 100) for color rendition. These lighting modules feature new LED chips that effectively display colors in their true vibrancy and richness as they appear under natural light.
Additionally, the iX series introduces new premium trim selections available in flangeless and micro flange options for DMF Lighting fixtures. Citing an increased demand for differentiated options in the CI channel, DMF states the trims are machined from solid blocks of aerospace-grade 6061 – T6 aluminum, with additional new trims being machined from solid brass 360 billet. The trims are then bead blasted for an ideal surface structure before being anodized with either a clear satin or rich bronze finish
The iX series is also mixing up installation by adding new dedicated flangeless housings eliminate the need to feather. DMF also notes they can be installed using conventional drywall taping techniques to achieve a level 5 drywall finish. Both round and square options work with all iX Series modules and trims, significantly improving the ease and speed of installation.
The products ship at 5/8 sheetrock thickness but also include presets for 1/2-, 5/8-, 1-, and 1 ¼-inch ceiling thicknesses. Additionally, an adapter plate provides outbound mounting tabs that are used to mount the Gypsum Panel with wingnuts.
Additionally, DMF Lighting has announced the iX Series of 2-inch Retrofit Conversion kits. This unique DMF solution converts existing 4-, 5- and 6-inch fixtures to a 2-inch opening, creating new sales opportunities for the CI integrators to utilize iX Series products in the residential market.
The retrofit kits are available in three configurations: 4-inch/5-inch to 2-inch conversion, round; 6-inch to 2-inch conversion, round; and 6-inch to 2-inch conversion, square. Round kits are provided with a round collar and mud plate conversion cover, and square kits come with a square collar and mud plate conversion cover for the Standard Flange, Flangeless, and Micro Flange trims in all colors.
DMF states this is to help solve existing installer issues associated with 2-inch products currently on the market without compromising on the performance and serviceability of said fixtures.
Attendees to CEDIA Expo 2023 can find the DMF Lighting team at Booth 4112. Additionally, DMF Lighting will be making its own guest appearance at Legrand’s lighting Experience Room as part of the Vantage Lighting Fixture Alliance.
