GE to phase out CFL lamps

Michael Noon

LED has become THE source for compact lamps as GE sees the future and begins its phase out of Compact Fluorescent Lamp products. LED are available in nearly universal styles, bases, and modules, and are more efficient, cooler, with fantastic ranges of color and high quality while being cheaply and easily dimmable. Beware suppliers offering deals on inventories of cheap and outmoded CFL fixtures and lamps on your projects, looking to turn higher profits on these items to unknowing clientele.

Re-Lighting the Crown Jewel of Baltimore, the 10 Light Tower

Michael Noon

Palindrome is very proud to announce the successful re-lighting of Baltimore's grand 10 Light Tower!  The most prominent rooftop in Baltimore is now showing off its gilded beauty and craftsmanship via new efficient and high color rendering LED fixtures.  The true colors of the gilded roof now glisten like never before from miles around the city.

The change from High Pressure Sodium floods to architectural LED floods and accent fixtures is transformative and comfortable for the newly residential grade building and its tenants. The building has been transformed from offices to an upscale multi-family apartment and condominium complex design by BCT Architects, and required a new lighting approach to address the comfort of the tenants inside while still proudly announcing the structure to the Baltimore nightscape. Mission accomplished!
