WE-EF at ALSA Expo 2012

Every year, landscape architects from across the U.S. and around the world gather at the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) annual meeting and EXPO. This year’s meeting and EXPO will be held in Phoenix from September 28 – October 1. WE-EF will be presenting a comprehensive selection of landscape lighting solutions at the EXPO in Booth #341.

This year’s booth will focus on WE-EF’s recent developments with energy-efficient LED technology. “As specialists in exterior lighting, we have developed a product range that offers design flexibility combined with the inherent benefits of LED technology,” said David Nolfi, Managing Director, WE-EF LIGHTING USA. “ASLA provides the ideal opportunity for attendees to see our new and established products, designed to help landscape architects realize their design vision.”

WE-EF, a pioneer in LED exterior lighting, has actively participated in its development from the beginning. As early as 12 years ago, WE-EF implemented the first large LED project at the SONY Center in Berlin. This is an immensely important advantage when it comes to effectively assessing the opportunities of LED technology and incorporating it into innovative lighting. At the show, WE-EF will display its advanced range of LED street and area luminaires, inground uplights, and projectors. The focus will be on two of WE-EF’s key competencies – the development of Innovative Optical System lens technology and sleek luminaire body designs.

WE-EF will present the RFL530 and VFL530 pedestrian scale LED street and area lighting luminaires. These products will feature innovative optical technologies such as WE-EF’s OLC® One LED Concept, a multi-layer technology that ensures homogeneous and glare-free light distribution, and the RFC® Reflection Free Contour which increases the efficiency of the luminaire significantly.

WE-EF will also highlight flexible solutions for landscape lighting with the ETC100 series inground uplights and FLC100 series projectors. Both product families will feature highly efficient LED lens systems with multiple beam spread and color options. The ETC100 LED GB, WE-EF’s most recent inground product development, will display WE-EF’s adjustable offset gimbal which rotates and pivots offering maximum design freedom. The FLC100 LED series projectors will showcase WE-EF’s new slim profile luminaire design with multiple size and luminaire package options.

The events bring thousands of negotiators, world leaders, researchers, civil society leaders, business leaders, practitioners and policymakers in agriculture, forestry and development, funding organizations, and media, making it the largest, most influential event outside the UNFCCC COP. Forum participants will benefit from joining the interactive process of seeking combined solutions to the complex challenges common to everyone on the planet. This website is built around the Forum’s events to create an interactive space for exchange and mutual learning about the challenges facing our planet. Landscapes Approaches What is a landscapes approach? Farms, forests, water bodies and settlements are not isolated elements but part of a wider landscape in which all land uses are integrated. A landscapes approach entails viewing and managing multiple land uses in an integrated manner, considering both the natural environment and the human systems that depend on it. The landscapes approach allows stakeholders to identify policy options, investment opportunities and research priorities by: Integrating policies across sectors and understanding how land-use choices in one area affect other areas Negotiating competing demands for land uses in a given landscape Assessing all factors that affect land uses, whether at local, national, regional or global levels Recognizing changes in landscapes as migration, urbanization, external shocks, and production and consumption patterns shape decisions on land use Valuing the role of all the people in the landscape and studying how groups benefit differently from land uses. Leveraging private and public capital for sustainable development in the landscape.
