Nora Lighting’s Pillar saves up to 75% in energy costs over incandescent lighting. The 15W LED track fixture has a slim vertical driver housing. Because it produces no projected heat, UV rays, or infrared rays, it is suited for merchandise displays, jewelry counters, art galleries, and produce markets. Available in 15-degree spot or 30-degree flood beam spreads in 3,000 K and 4,200 K, it is rated at 30,000 hours of performances and measures 51/4" long by 63/8" wide by 35/8" in diameter. The luminaire is constructed of die-cast aluminum and comes in black, white, or silver. noralighting.com
