The reliability of art lighting is an issue of paramount importance: the enlightening force of illumination brings the canvas to life, and without it, paintings are simply oils upon a screen. Indeed, battery operated picture lights, though convenient, require annual interruptions to renew their power source, and art lights running on AC power are always vulnerable to being unplugged. Therefore, in order to offer high end art lighting of the greatest consistency, Cocoweb has crafted its Hardwire series of Tru-Slim Picture Lights: equipped with an ultra-thin chassis lined with Picture-Perfect™ LED art lighting systems, this modern picture light is a direct wire fixture that threads into walls and junction boxes, a steadfast and tenacious source of picture lighting.
Slender Design Keeps Attention on Art
Cocoweb's Tru-Slim line of picture lights was designed by artists to best accentuate art, and therefore takes upon itself a more underscored form: measured at a mere 7/8 of an inch thick, these museum-grade art lights aim to draw attention to only the art on display, housing upon their frame no overly ornate decorations. This particular model mildly expands upon this diminutive size, measuring at 16 inches across and befitting frames and artwork of a small-to-medium format. A satin nickel finish adorns this model, a light metallic shade suited to more contemporary artwork.
LEDs Render Artwork Picture-Perfect™
Cocoweb's Picture-Perfect™ LEDs power the Tru-Slim into artistic perfection: 12 low voltage LED nodes produce a soft white-yellow glow at 2700K color temperature, a warmth similar to the sun in the early morning. Indeed, this natural light fully accents artwork at a Color Rendering Index of 90, filling reds and yellows with a richer depth and smoothing blues and greens into a greater cool. And to preserve this newfound fullness the Tru-Slim operates at low heat, keeping paintings safe from drying and cracking, and produces no ultraviolet radiation in its light, saving art from discoloration.
Direct Wire Function Offers Superior Reliability
The Hardwire Tru-Slim assuages issues of inconsistent gallery illumination: in contemporary fashion, this light fixture wires directly into the junction boxes embedded in the walls of one's gallery and thereby ensures greater reliability of illumination in comparison to battery operated and AC power picture lights. Indeed, the Tru-Slim's LEDs last for up to 50,000 hours at a brightness of 410 lumens, able to go without replacement for the next 20 years. As a wired electronic, however, the Tru-Slim does necessitate some installation, though such a task is made simple by arrangement of the light, with the connecting wires running through the retainer in the right arm and the wall mount attached to the arm on the left.
Environmental Safety through Clean Operation
In true compassion to the environment, the Tru-Slim runs in extreme energy efficiency: consuming a mere 6 watts of electricity, the LEDs in this light exhibit an 80% reduction in energy use when compared to incandescent bulbs operating at a similar luminosity. In addition, Cocoweb LEDs also contain none of the mercury required to power incandescents and thus spare the environment of toxic material upon disposal.
