DRD2 & OneFrame

The DRD2 is a compact LED module with an integrated driver that delivers the optimal balance of form and function. It provides outstanding illumination and color consistency while being simple to specify, install and maintain. When paired with the award winning OneFrame housing, you can achieve the fire, sound, wet location and other ratings required for the most demanding projects.

DRD5S & SurfaceFrame

The DRD5S redefines what’s possible for a surface mount downlight. Packed with technical breakthroughs, the ultra-thin DRD5S matches the elegance of a high-end recessed downlight. Get the most out of DRD5S by installing it into our advanced octagonal junction box, the SurfaceFrame. Together, it’s even easier to specify, install and maintain and includes fire, sound, air tight and insulated contact ratings.

DCC Cylinder

By combining a suite of customizable features with our highest performing LED modules yet, the DCC provides brilliant illumination and beautiful design versatile enough for whatever your project needs. The DCC centers around a modular LED lighting system, so it’s easy to specify, install and maintain.
