Carpinteria, CA– 2016 – Now in its sixth year, the Architectural SSL Product Innovation Award winners have all demonstrated great strides in advancing the technology well beyond the status of mere replacement products and Griplock® Systems’ Solimar® Powered Suspension System is among those winners.
“I love this!” exclaimed a PIA Judge. “It would work great with wireless dimming and controls to provide a dimmable product with seemingly no wires.”
Solimar® is a Patent Pending, UL recognized dual-conductor coaxial cable—ideal for pendants or linear fixtures that need one power drop location – capable of powering any Class 2 LED lighting fixture and strong enough to suspend heavy fixtures with a safe working load of 40 pounds*. Solimar® frees lighting fixture designers from a bulky power cord and allows them to work with a broader range of materials and form factors to achieve their visions.
“More lighting manufacturers are now going beyond just retrofitting existing fixtures for use with LEDs. Instead, they’re designing more and more elegant fixtures with LEDs and we recognized a need for a suspension system that was just as elegant,” stated Ryan Kwast, Griplock® VP of Sales and Engineering. “Solimar® is the culmination of several years of development and customer feedback. We are very proud to receive this award and look forward to what the future holds.”
Solimar® is the second in a line of powered suspension systems from Griplock® Systems. The first is the Patented single-conductor powered suspension system, Rincon®.
Rincon® is a single-conductor powered suspension system utilizing CordFree™ technology for linear fixtures, light boxes, and multi-pendant LED fixtures requiring multiple connectors. The system eliminates the need for a separate power cord, offering a clean and elegant look. Rincon® is complete with Griplock’s ground-breaking grippers, which provide labor-saving tool-free installation and quick adjustments in the field.
