Emeryville CA – Elemental LED, a leading U.S. based engineering and technology company that manufactures LED lighting solutions announced today that several Diode LED products were honored with Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards (PIA) for the most innovative LED products in the market. Elemental LED and its manufacturing and wholesale division, Diode LED, provides a wide variety of superior quality linear, task, and accent LED lighting solutions for both commercial and residential applications.
The 2017 PIA winners include the following Diode LED products;
FLUID VIEW® 12V LED Tape Light – Amber:
Luminaires, Landscape/Pathway Category
LO-PRO® UL Listed Junction Box Series:
Components & Light Sources, Driver Category
REIGN® Wall Mount LED Dimmer Switches:

Elemental LED received a Project Award for the most innovative use of SSL for a color-changing kitchen countertop designed for the Kitchen Studio of Monterey Peninsula. Elemental LED’s recent website redesign also received special recognition.
“In looking over this year’s winners, I’m especially pleased to see the emergence of a lot more specialty lighting offerings, as well as decorative fixtures, as opposed to the myriad of area lights and downlights that dominated the early awards,” states Jim Crockett, Editorial Director, Architectural SSL Magazine.
“We continually strive to expand the capabilities of our product line with innovative and patented solutions that shape the future of LED lighting,” says Randy Holleschau, CEO of Elemental LED. “The recognition by Architectural SSL Magazine is testament that the talented engineering and technology team at Elemental LED is leading the way in solving industry wide challenges that face consumers. We are honored to have multiple products selected for the coveted Product Innovation Awards.”
FLUID VIEW® 12V Tape Light Amber is considered sea-turtle friendly holding the Wildlife Lighting certification demonstrating how Diode LED products can play a helpful role in protecting marine animals in their natural environment. Red and amber LED lights give off a longer wavelength light, which is less likely to impact sea turtles’ mating, nesting and migration habits.
LO-PRO® Junction Box – a unique, multipurpose electrical enclosure– was created by Diode LED to meet strict electrical code requirements that provide cost savings and easy installation of LED power supplies in a wide range of environments. The truly amazing benefit of this certified enclosure is the option to pair a UL Listed driver from a select list of LED power supplies from Diode LED for a complete UL Listed solution.
REIGN® Wall Mount Dimmer Switches provide full dimming control and on/off switching for white LED lighting. These switches offer smooth, flicker-free dimming with a choice of three styles and two finishes. These wall mount switches fit into a standard single gang box for easy installation in any commercial or residential application.
