Tech Lighting Spotlights Broad Collection of 2010 Innovations at June Dallas International Lighting Market

Highlights Include New LED Head and Downlight and Easy-to-Install Wireless Speakers for Low-Voltage Track Lighting Systems

DALLAS, TX and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  Tech Lighting, a Chicago-based manufacturer of premium decorative lighting, will spotlight its broad collection of lighting innovations for 2010 at The Dallas International Lighting Market, June 24-27, 2010 (showroom #4705 in the Dallas Market Center).

"It's been an exciting year for product innovation at Tech Lighting and we're looking forward to sharing all of our new developments in Dallas," said Sean Lavin, VP of Product Design for Tech Lighting. "We're especially excited to demonstrate our new award-winning LED technology and railtones, our new wireless audio speaker system. Both of these products marry high performance with superior design and aesthetics, and as a result, deliver outstanding functionality and value far beyond just illumination."

Tech Lighting's ELEMENT is a line of fully adjustable and lockable recessed architectural downlights. The new 3" LED Downlight was recently honored with a LIGHTFAIR International Innovation Award as a "best in category" for Downlights, Wallwasher, and Accent Lights. Not only does this new 3" LED ELEMENT downlight perform well, but Tech Lighting has given equal care to the product's aesthetics. A wide assortment of die cast trim options are available and interchangeable with Tech Lighting's line of 3.5" aperture halogen and downlights.

Also new from Tech Lighting, the Envision LED head offers a balance of design and performance. The die cast aluminum LED head pivots vertically 90 degrees and rotates 360 degrees. Components are modular for ease of replacement. Its power supply and heat sink fins both sit within the head resulting in a clean, thoughtful, seamless design. It is available as a monopoint or on the award-winning low profile, hand-bendable, single-circuit or two-circuit low-voltage T~TRAK rail system.

Visitors to the Tech Lighting showroom can demo railtones -- Tech Lighting's patent pending, breakthrough wireless audio speaker system that mounts to and is powered by Tech Lighting's low-voltage lighting systems. With railtones, which will be available in July 2010, homeowners and businesses will be able to effortlessly add surround sound throughout a home or commercial space simply by connecting the speakers to Tech Lighting's lighting systems without any additional installation and the wireless transmitter to almost any audio device. The system features uncompressed DVD-quality audio for superb sound. 

The railtones kit will include two wireless speakers, one wireless transmitter (plus power adaptor/cords) and one remote control with volume control and four pre-set equalizer options, allowing users to control each speaker individually. Additional speakers and a sub-woofer can be purchased separately.

The latest in LED technology from Tech Lighting will also be on display. The modules offer brighter downlight illumination than the previous version and fit all of Tech Lighting's low-voltage heads and pendants, making them easy to upgrade.

Tech Lighting will also be highlighting more than two dozen new signature line-voltage and low-voltage pendants, wall sconces, ceiling fixtures and chandeliers the company has introduced in 2010. For images and descriptions of these new products, please view the 2010 new product fact sheet at

Tech Lighting will also be showcasing enhancements made to its industry leading MonoRail system in response to customer requests for a more visually appealing surface transformer, flusher rail system and improved FreeJack connector. The new MonoRail system features one inch standoffs and low-profile power feed canopies, which allows the system to sit closer to the ceiling. Tech Lighting is also introducing a Remodel Recessed Transformer, which combines the aesthetics of remote transformers with the flexibility of surface transformers. The transformer is concealed inside a housing that recesses above the ceiling; the decorative canopy is the only visible portion of the transformer once installed.
