After 4 years, LIGHTFAIR® International returned to Philadelphia and it came back stronger than ever. Griplock® Systems was proud to be one of the hundreds of exhibitors at this year’s trade show, showcasing the latest and greatest cable suspension systems on the market.
The most sought after systems this year were the powered suspension systems. In the Griplock® Systems’ booth, Rincon® was powering and suspending a fixture from Light Art by 3form and Solimar® was showcased with a fixture from IMPACT Architectural Lighting.
“It wasn’t the first time we had the powered suspension systems on display,” states Ryan Kwast, VP of Sales and Engineering. “But now, the number of companies ready to cut the power cord and move to a cleaner look has grown exponentially.”
Griplock® Systems wasn’t merely contained to their booth, their presence was seen throughout the tradeshow floor. Exhibitors were using Griplock products to suspend signs, ceilings, and of course light fixtures – many of which were utilizing powered suspension.
“We had several designers and engineers come by the booth telling us that they had been given specific directives about the use of power cord in future designs,” recalls Bryan Shamblin, Sales Director. “They were told to get rid of it.”
Also on display in the Griplock® Systems’ booth were the Wisp™ Lightweight Cable Suspension system on a Fluxwerx fixture and an industrial cable suspension system on a Louvers International high-bay fixture.
LIGHTFAIR® International 2018 is set to take place in Chicago, a first since 1995. Make your plans now to attend the show and see Griplock® Systems at booth # 3755.
