About Cooledge Lighting Inc. - Cooledge is a venture backed start-up focused on delivering high value solid-state lighting solutions to the general illumination market. Founded in 2009, Cooledge launched its product line of a flexible LED light sheets at LIGHTFAIR International 2013 in Philadelphia, PA, April 23-25, 2013.

Cooledge light sheet provides high quality lighting with luminous efficacies exceeding 140 lumens per watt and 100,000 hours lifetime. The light sheet utilizes a highly dense pattern of LEDs on a thin plastic substrate, delivering on the promise of OLEDs with the reliability and performance of LEDs. 

Light sheet's unique form factor permits large panels, long lengths and the ability to conform to a wide variety of shapes, eliminating many of the constraints and challenges imposed by existing LED systems. Luminaire designs using the light sheet can be fluid, thin and minimal in design as well as allowing unique material choices. Based on Cooledge Lighting's patented technology, this new medium of light requires no additional heat-sinking or thermal management and inspires a wide range of unique and novel luminaire designs.

Cooledge light sheet comes in various sizes having widths from 1.1" (28mm) to 11" (280mm) and lengths up to 15' (4.6m). These linear sheets are available in nominal one-foot standard lengths and can be custom configured to luminaire manufacturer requirements. Light sheet is fully dimmable with standard commercial dimmers and is a UL recognized class-2 low voltage component, allowing for ease of integration and design. The product is RoHS/REACH compliant and carries a 5-year limited system warranty.

Cooledge, along with its luminaire manufacturer partners, sees the opportunity to redefine the geometry of light as an important next step in the evolution and use of LED lighting technology. Cooledge's unique light sheet technology will change the way lighting is applied to space by blurring the line between lighting equipment and the architectural space.
