Kenall Lighting Adds KORE Technology to Surgical Series, Expands Linear Series

Kenall Lighting announces the expansion of its popular Millenium Stretch series and adds proprietary KORE technology to its industry leading M4SEDI surgical suite family, while expanding the options available within each series for added flexibility.

This week, Kenall Lighting introduced an extension of their popular Millenium Stretch™ family, the MLHA3. The first in Kenall's portfolio to offer a customizable lumen output and color temperature, this 3-inch-wide luminaire is versatile and stylish. Although modern and slim in appearance, it's robust enough to carry Kenall's signature Peace of Mind Guarantee® against breakage. Additionally, the MLHA3 offers continuous runs with multiple length options, disinfection lighting via Indigo-Clean Technology (ICT), and a BIOS SkyBlue™ option to promote health and wellness.

Nate Heiking, Kenall's Product Development Engineering Manager, stated, "This is an exciting addition to our Millenium Stretch series, one of the most popular and versatile linear products in Kenall's portfolio. The fixture's small profile makes it's less obtrusive, giving it the subtle design aesthetic valued by today's lighting designers and architects."

This launch follows the introduction of Kenall's updated M4SEDI surgical suite luminaire. Because the surgical theater requires optimal visual acuity, Kenall has integrated its proprietary, powerful, and efficient KORE Technology™ into its industry leading M4 surgical series. This new optical engine provides full lens uniformity as well as glare and contrast control, so critical in surgical suites. While the price point remains unchanged, increased efficiency results in lower energy use, which translates into lower total cost of ownership.

Additionally, the new, lighter weight M4 housing provides greater ease of install. In addition to standard white, the M4SEDI is also available in green LED, which enhances monitor visibility during surgical procedures, reducing staff eye strain. The fixture is available in 2x4, 2x2, 1x4 and a new 1x2 size.
Kenall's new SimpleSeal CSSGI series is a budget-friendly cleanroom luminaire that features a low-profile design for minimal intrusion into the highly valued plenum space. The luminaire features an edge-lit light engine providing a uniform distribution of light across the surface of the lens. NSF and IP rated, the fixture is suitable for ISO 3-8 cleanrooms, ISO9 clean spaces and BSL 1-4 cleanrooms.

Kenosha, WI -- This week, Kenall Lighting introduced the CSSGI series: a shallow plenum troffer ideal for cleanrooms and clean spaces, including laboratories, food processing plants, pharmacies, pharmaceutical manufacturing, research centers and more. Filling a market need for a slim, budget-friendly cleanroom luminaire, the fixture's low-profile design allows for minimal intrusion into the highly valued plenum space.

At a scant 2.5" deep, the CSSGI is available in 2'x2' and 2'x4' sizes, making it ideal for use in ISO 3-8 cleanrooms, ISO9 life sciences clean spaces, and BSL 1-4 cleanrooms with grid ceilings. Featuring an edge-lit light engine, the luminaire's high-output, high-CRI lamp source provides uniform lighting across the surface of the lens. As evidence of its certified performance, the CSSGI is available with an NSF2 and IP66 listing.

Nate Heiking, Kenall's Product Development Engineering Manager, stated, "The new SimpleSeal CSSGI luminaire was developed in response to market demand. The luminaire offers a low-profile design suitable for installation into ISO 3-9 and BSL 1-4 cleanrooms, at a low total cost of ownership. The design also allows for ease of access to the internal housing and driver when installed, making it a more serviceable fixture than the competition."

The CSSGI is the newest addition to Kenall's robust portfolio of SimpleSeal sealed enclosure lighting. Kenall offers specific expertise in sealed, IP-rated lighting for cleanrooms and clean spaces. With over 60 years' experience in specialty lighting, and a vertically integrated manufacturing facility located in the heart of the Midwest, the Kenall name has become synonymous with quality lighting for challenging cleanroom environments.

Kenall Introduces CSSGI Shallow Plenum Cleanroom Luminaire for ISO 3-8 Spaces
Kenosha, Wisconsin – Architectural SSL Magazine recently announced Kenall’s new MedMaster® MCRT round troffer a recipient of their coveted Product Innovation Award (PIA ’23). These awards were created to honor the most innovative LED and solid state luminaires on the market, as judged by the publication’s editorial staff and an esteemed panel of industry peers.

The MedMaster MCRT is a 24” round LED troffer offering a soft, contemporary design aesthetic for healthcare facilities. A fresh take on sealed healthcare lighting, this new series allows lighting designers to integrate more dramatic shapes and maintain design consistency throughout a facility, while also meeting stringent performance standards for cleaning and infection prevention. Available exclusively from Kenall, the MCRT is the only round troffer on the market to offer a safe, continuous Indigo-Clean visible light disinfection option, allowing hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers to add an extra layer of protection against a range of pathogens, including MRSA, C. diff, SARS-CoV2, and Influenza A. Options also include a low voltage controller that allows patients to regulate their lighting and an amber nightlight to support patient wayfinding.

“We are honored by this recognition and excited to add this round troffer to our MedMaster healthcare lighting portfolio”, said Nate Heiking, Product Development Engineering Manager at Kenall. “While Kenall’s reputation is built on certified performance, we are in the process of transforming the design aesthetic of our luminaires without compromising the performance standards so critical to the healthcare space. By combining aesthetically pleasing design with robust listings and certifications, lighting designers, architects and engineers can specify Kenall with complete confidence.”
Kenall Manufacturing is expanding its offering of “virtually impenetrable” correctional lighting with the new Mighty Mac® HXSS. Along with the Mighty Mac SSAS, CCS and WCBHS, the HXSS is part of a family of unique, completely doorless luminaires designed to prevent inmate access into the lighting, deterring weaponization of components and promoting the safety and security of staff and inmates.

The hexagonal HXSS luminaire's stainless steel housing bolts directly to the ceiling with tamper-proof hardware, preventing contraband concealment and reducing or eliminating the need for cells to be emptied for routine maintenance. The HXSS delivers appropriate footcandle levels using just one fixture per cell, and it is appropriate for use in behavioral health settings, as the flat lens is specifically designed to be ligature resistant.

“The new Mighty Mac® HXSS and other doorless luminaires have been embraced by the correctional community, and reflect the commitment Kenall Manufacturing has to protect those who live and work in the detention, security and behavioral health space,” stated Bill Blackley, Senior Director of Marketing.

This virtually impenetrable fixture prohibits unauthorized entry and weaponization of the luminaire, via a completely unique housing design, making it ideal for cells, corridors, restrooms, and behavioral health areas. The Long LED lifetime and optional Wet Location rating makes it a true set-it-and-forget-it lighting solution.
