Transforming safety, style, and design: NSL launches cutting-edge Fire Rated Thin Line fixture


Buffalo NY, October 31st 2023 – NSL, a trailblazer in the lighting industry for over 38 years, is poised to revolutionize perceptions of fire-rated fixtures. Our new product, the 5CCT Fire Rated Thin Line fixture, not only adheres to the stringent 2-hour fire rating requirements for multi-story buildings across the US but also offers industry-leading lumen output (800LM for the 4”, 1100LM for the 6”) and 5 selectable colour temperatures, all while maintaining a sleek and stylish design.

With an unwavering commitment to safety, aesthetics, and innovation, the 5CCT Fire Rated Thin Line fixture is all set to be the game-changer in the electrical lighting industry.

Safety First: Meeting and Exceeding Standards

Safety is paramount in the design and construction of multi-story buildings. In this regard, the 2-hour fire rating has become the gold standard for fire protection. The 5CCT Fire Rated Thin Line fixture meets and exceeds this requirement, ensuring that it is up to the task in the most demanding environments. This rating not only enhances safety but also provides peace of mind to architects, contractors, and building owners.

“This fixture is a testament to our dedication to safety. We understand the critical role that fire-rated fixtures play in saving lives and protecting property in the event of a fire,” says Jennifer Penton, Vice President of Business Development at NSL.

Style Meets Substance: The Advantages of Thin Fixtures with 5CCT and 90+ CRI

The 5CCT Fire Rated Downlight is a visual marvel. Its slim and unobtrusive design seamlessly integrates with any architectural style, making it ideal for spaces where aesthetics matter. What sets it apart is the integration of 5 Selectable Colour Temperatures (5CCT), allowing users to tailor the lighting to their specific needs. Additionally, this fixture boasts an impressive Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 90+, ensuring that colors are represented accurately and vividly. With 5CCT and 90+ CRI, it not only provides lighting tailored to the mood but also showcases the true colors of the environment. For added convenience, it delivers an illuminating 800LM for the 4-inch model and 1100LM for the 6-inch model, further enhancing its versatility and performance.

Thin fixtures offer an advantage in installation as they require minimal ceiling clearance, providing flexibility in various design applications. Now, with 5CCT and 90+ CRI, the Fire Rated Downlight excels in its minimalistic design and ensures that the lighting not only perfectly complements the environment but also reveals its true colors, meeting both practical and aesthetic requirements.

“These thin fixtures are not only practical but also a design marvel. They allow lighting to be integrated into spaces in a subtle yet impactful way. With 5 selectable colour temperatures and a CRI of 90+, the possibilities for creating the perfect atmosphere while maintaining true color representation are virtually endless,” Anant Desai, Marketing Manager, adds.

NSL understands that value is a key consideration in any project. The 5CCT Fire Rated Thin Line not only excels in safety and design but also in affordability. The competitive pricing ensures that quality lighting is within reach for a wide range of projects, from commercial buildings to residential complexes.
