Three years after its release, the DRD2 LED module’s groundbreaking design continues to impact the downlighting industry
With an intelligent design that makes it simple to install, maintain or replace, the innovative DRD2 revolutionized downlighting. It’s a design and concept others are still trying to replicate today.
When developing the DRD2, DMF engineers looked to create a compact LED downlight that could produce exceptional light at a price point unmatched in the industry. We sought to make it amazingly simple to install, maintain or replace. And that’s exactly what we accomplished.
DRD2 introduced a host of innovations to the downlighting industry. Its Twist & lock feature allowed for tool-free installations and seamless integration with multiple trim options. Combine that with an integrated driver for plug-and-play compatibility and it made installations simpler than ever. All while taking up far less space and using much less energy. It’s an LED module that’s perfectly balanced to give you everything you need.
The combination of exceptional lighting, flexible compatibility, and industry-leading value made the DRD2 our most successful product. But we didn’t stop there. Along the way, we upgraded the Cree® LED chip, further increasing its already stellar efficiency. Then, we introduced the Apex Series DRD2X, an architectural-grade version with enhanced optics for a precise, targeted beam of low glare illumination. And most recently, we leveraged our experience from engineering DRD2 to develop the adjustable DRD4 LED, which can install in our award winning OneFrame®, just like DRD2.
As others try to catch up to DRD2, DMF is already hard at work developing future iterations and new related products. Our company’s products and culture both take shape in our in-house R&D lab. It’s our goal to always deliver exceptional performance and we cannot wait to unveil what’s next for DRD2.
