The new arm of the Kentucky, US-based company will feature a full range of LED lighting options for mines, industrial facilities, marine & port environments as well as specialized areas, such as hazardous materials.
Matrix chose LEDs because they are brighter, last longer and are more durable than traditional metal halide and halogen products.
"LED has become the light of today," providing performance and cost effectiveness that is making other types of lighting obsolete," president David Clardy said.
The company added mines and industrial users report that these high-quality LED lights provide a "clean" light with even distribution and softer shadows. They are also mine and field tested and highly durable, carrying vibration, ingress, noise and load dump/EMC ratings.
