Kenosha, Wisconsin (November 5th, 2020) – BUILDINGS Magazine, in partnership with interiors+sources, recently announced the winners of the 2020 Product Innovations Awards. Kenall’s SimpleSeal CSERI/O, a new, more efficient cleanroom luminaire, was the recipient of a Merit Award in Lighting. According to BUILDINGS Editor-in-chief Janelle Penny, “We were truly impressed by the Product Innovations submissions this year. This annual competition spotlights the best in interior products, and this year’s finalists wowed us with their thoughtful attention to detail and their inventive use of materials.”
The annual competition is open to manufacturers of commercial interior building products designed for both commercial and institutional settings, including education, corporate, healthcare, hospitality, government and retail. This luminaire series was also recognized by the same publication as a 2020 Money Saving Product for Facilities Management.
“SimpleSeal CSERO/I luminaires are engineered to protect the integrity of all makes of cleanrooms, creating bright, evenly diffused light to improve worker comfort and boost productivity. They also dramatically reduce the cost of ownership via unparalleled energy efficiency and industry-leading efficacy,” said Bill Blackley, Senior Director of Marketing & Project Management at Kenall. “Our exclusive, advanced optics permit the fixtures to be spaced farther apart, while still achieving required foot-candle levels,” he added.
