McGraw-Edison TopTier

Platinum Award
The TopTier™ Parking Garage and Canopy Luminaire is an innovative solution that delivers an unparalleled combination of performance and visual comfort. The patented WaveStream™ optical technology blocks the line of sight from the LED light sources to the observer, while extracting the maximum amount of light on task. This approach results in a high level of uniformity and vertical footcandles that enhances safety in the application environment. The fixture’s superior, patented optical control and patent-pending design improves visual comfort to enhance safety while providing maximum energy savings of up to 76 percent annually. The TopTier luminaire is UL/cUL listed for wet locations, IP66 and 3G vibration rated.

WaveStream LED technology transforms the LED point source into an elegant luminous plane. A patented optical system maximizes the amount of light injected into the WaveStream panel, dramatically improving luminaire efficiency. Laser-precise AccuAim™ optics arranged in exacting patterns provide unparalleled brightness control while delivering the maximum amount of light on task. The TopTier luminaire’s resulting high level of uniformity enhances safety in parking garages, stairwells, covered walkways, as well as other low-bay and canopy applications.

The TopTier luminaire offers an unparalleled combination of performance and visual comfort. The luminaire’s industry-leading optical performance, low power consumption, low life cycle cost, versatile configurations and architectural aesthetics serve as an ideal solution for both retrofit and new construction opportunities.

The McGraw-Edison TopTier luminaire provides up to 118 lumens per watt while offering energy savings of up to 76 percent when compared to traditional high intensity discharge. The fixture is available in five lumen packages ranging from 3,000 to 9,000 lumens with a standard 4000 Kelvin Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) and a minimum 70 Color Rendering Index. Optional color temperatures include 3000K CCT and 6000K CCT. The TopTier luminaire is offered in three unique optical distributions (concentrated, medium and wide), satisfying multiple mounting height needs to meet Illuminating Engineering Society’s recommended light levels. To facilitate ease of installation in three simple steps, the TopTier luminaire’s versatile mounting configurations include surface/j-box, pendant, trunnion and wall mounting. The fixture has a 5-year warranty and retains a high lumen output at 60,000 hours per Illuminating Engineering Society of North America TM-21 standard.

To further enhance energy savings, the TopTier luminaire is available with an optional integrated dimming occupancy sensor and other control options. In addition to financial benefits, the control options are designed to be simple and cost-effective ASHRAE and Title 24 compliant solutions.
