Kenosha, Wisconsin (October 19, 2022) – According to urban.org, the number of Americans ages 65 and older will more than double between 2000 and 2040. This uptick in demand for health care diagnostic procedures by an aging population means an increased need for non-ferrous lighting options in healthcare spaces. As a result, Kenall has introduced ten new non-ferrous MedMaster troffers and three new slot luminaires with a variety of configurations, all designed for your challenging applications.
For MRI suites, hybrid ORs, and other healthcare spaces where magnets are employed, Kenall offers the MedMaster MRI4SEDI and MRI4SESI Series. These luminaires come in a broad range of lumen packages and include an option for 530nm green to enhance the visibility of screens and monitors during surgeries. The increasingly popular MedMaster MedSlot Series now includes MRIRS4, a slim, stylish non-ferrous luminaire.
For cleanrooms and clean spaces in healthcare facilities, labs, and pharmacies, SimpleSeal NFCSEDI & NFCSESI luminaire families combine the best in non-ferrous construction and sealed performance to illuminate spaces where magnetically sensitive processes are performed. Lynn Walldorf, Kenall’s Product Marketing Manager, said, “Our years of expertise in lighting challenging environments, especially in healthcare and cleanrooms, means your application will be safely and completely sealed from both sides -- the room and plenum – not just the room side. Also, our proprietary optics promote eye comfort, and reduce the debilitating glare in reflective surfaces, which is common with lower-quality flat-panel lighting.” Walldorf concluded, “As with all our lighting, the comfort of room occupants is always an important priority.”
Kenall Manufacturing, a Legrand company, was founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1963 and has built a reputation for durable lighting solutions of superior quality and exceptional value. Today, the company creates specialized solutions for the healthcare, cleanroom/containment, food processing, transportation, high abuse, and correctional lighting markets. Kenall luminaires are designed and manufactured in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and comply with the Buy American Act (manufactured in the United States with more than 50% of the component cost of US origin).
