LOUISVILLE, KY. Remarking that “the days of incandescent bulbs are over,” Grote Industries officials announced new additions to a number of its LED lamp models at the Mid-America Trucking Show. Currently 60 to 70% of all new trailers leave the plant with LED signal lights because of their superior performance and the continuing decline in LED technology costs, according to Eric Morris, Grote CEO & president.
Among the new signal lamps products announced at the truck show were 4-in. round and 6-in. oval stop, tail and turn lamps to the company’s SuperNova LED line. The new lamp models come with a variety of terminal options and offer a cost-effective option to fleets looking to convert from incandescent lamps to LEDs, Grote officials said.
Also new in Grote’s LED signal lamp offerings are SuperNova single-diode LED back-up lamps utilizing the company’s WhiteLight high-output LED technology.
Grote’s aftermarket Hi Count LED line also gets a number of new offerings with a broad offering of clear lens red and amber stop, tail, turn, corner and marker lights.Turning to work lamps, Grote announced two new products based on its WhiteLight LED technology--a Per-Lux line of work lamps and a new, smaller version of its Trilliant work lamp. Both come with spot, flood or trapezoid lenses and a variety of mounting options. The Per-Lux line features a heavy-gauge stainless steel housing, and the Trilliant model uses a powder-coated cast aluminum housing.
