Long-life LED luminaire
Featuring a low-profile and compact form factor, the powder-coated aluminum DuroSite LED wallpack luminaire is fully compliant with all standard ratings and certifications, making it ideal for stairwells, platforms, exits, walkways, building exteriors, tunnels and other confined or hard-to-access spaces. Intended as a replacement for high-pressure sodium, metal halide, incandescent and fluorescent fixtures, the lighting is offered in 11-watt and 22-watt versions, and has a 10-year lifespan. Each fixture weighs 9 pounds and can be mounted to ceilings or walls. Dialight, 732-919-3119, http://www.dialight.com.

Inflatable chamber packaging protects products, reduces waste
Formed from a series of adjoining air tubes that are inflated to cushion and protect products during shipment, the ChamberPak protective packaging is ideal for delicate electronics and other sensitive products. Connected with one-way valves, if one chamber is punctured the remaining air tubes remain inflated. The film is made from a coextrusion of low-density polyethylene film and nylon for enhanced air retention. The packaging ships flat for energy efficient shipping and storage. Upon receipt, the deflated structures create less solid waste. Pregis, 877-692-6163, http://www.pregis.com.

Intelligent lighting control enhances energy efficiency
To verify the performance of an intelligent lighting control system, the Powerlink EM monitors energy savings by circuit, zone, space, panel or complete lighting system. Individual branch circuit remote control and metering functions are combined in a single lighting panel-board enclosure. The system provides historical trends for determination of additional energy improvements and generates cost allocation reports according to actual energy usage. The control is offered as a component of the supplier’s Powerlink G3 that reduces electrical energy consumption from lighting and other loads by automatically switching loads off during non-occupied periods.

Flexible multipacker uses less film
Offered in single, double and three lane configurations, the Tritium multipacker swiftly arranges products into compact pack patterns and wraps the configurations in film, eliminating the need for trays and pads. The continuous motion machinery then sends the packs through an energy-efficient heat tunnel to shrink the film around each multi-pack. To meet sustainability demands, the packer features an energy-efficient heat tunnel, and uses less packaging material overall. Other features include modular construction of stainless steel, easy-access guard doors, robotic wrapping, servo-driven film cutting and timing belts instead of steel chains for quieter, lubrication-free operation.

Scalable solar panel racking kits
Ideal for multiple building and weather conditions, the FastRack line of pre-engineered solar mounting kits includes 40 different models. The kits install in four steps and can be mounted over roof obstructions. Durable, the kits handle high winds and snow loads, while watertight connections ensure all roof penetrations are leak-free. The scalable kits are compatible with any brand of photovoltaic module. Silverback Solar, 877-765-2759, http://www.silverbacksolar.com.

Coated, flat-rolled steel sheet meets global environmental regulations
To support green building design and practices, Acrylume CF coated flat-rolled steel sheets are coated with chromium-free clear polymer. The product exceeds anticipated environmental regulations in the U.S. and meets European Union environmental directives. Ideal for use in metal roofing and siding, the sheet steel’s coating minimizes staining and discoloration during storage, handling and installation. The material does not require a lubricant application prior to roll forming, making it free of slippery substances for safer handling. United States Steel, 877-798-7909, http://www.ussteel.com.
