Prod WAC Strut 400x275The STRUT System from WAC incorporates direct and indirect illumination, wall wash, downlight, accent light, and pendants utilizing connected control technologies to give a personalized and modular experience.

“STRUT is built upon problem-solving lighting solutions for the most irritating and costly challenges in today’s commercial, institutional, and residential projects,” explained WAC Co-CEO Dirk Wald. “This intuitive system is modular, adjustable, user-friendly, and future-proof, developed with advancements in optics, LEDs, sensors and controls that help promote productivity, visual comfort, health and wellness.”

The modular system allows users to configure standard components for a customized 48V DC lighting solution. The magnetic infrastructure permits elements to slide within the STRUT and adjust lighting effects while powered on-site. The Vacancy Photo Sensor is two devices in one; tuned in for human detection and an ambient light sensor to adjust illumination for daylight harvesting and balance electric lighting.

STRUT’s Connected Power Unit (CPU) accommodates voltage input ranges of 120-277V AC and is available in various wattages up to 600 watts to better handle greater loads. Proprietary technology will intelligently correct for minimum load or voltage drops to accommodate longer run lengths. The STRUT CPU enables 0-10V, TRIAC/ELV, and optional DMX dimming protocols for interfacing with control systems. Each lighting or control element is uniquely addressed and operates easily from an iOS or Android app to control and schedule elements in groups; it also integrates with building control systems.

Architectural channels can be suspended, surface-mounted, or recessed with or without trims, and can be field-cut to fit on the job site.

Three lumen packages, 4 CCTs, and a flush or regressed option for superior glare control are offered. Indirect lighting provides high output and a diffused option for indirect reflected illumination. Stealth wall wash provides a discriminating wall wash performance from a sleek package that hides within the architectural channel. STRUT also includes stealth downlights that feature low-glare optics and multiple stealth downlights available in 4-, 8-, and 16-light versions plus various finishes.

The adjustable, 450-lumen stealth Silo operates as both an accent and downlight that hides within the channel profile and shapes the beam from 15 to 50 degrees. Its discreet cylinder design contains a dynamic focus beam-shaping mechanism that ranges from 15-40 degrees. The Silo cylinder spotlight is also available with fixed beams of spot, narrow, or flood using TIR lens technology for superior lumen output.  

The FollowMe Silo motorized LED accent – used in conjunction with the WAC app or beacon – adjusts to highlight frequently moved objects such as seasonal retail displays, plants in home theaters and office lobbies, and artwork in galleries and studios, without climbing a ladder. It also features 15-40° beam spread adjustment, 180° vertical tilt, and 360° horizontal rotation.

Geometric pendants include Niveous, an etched triplex opal mouthblown glass orb, and Elementum, a luminous opal glass cylinder. The Silo pendant is a functional cylinder light that rotates for continuous 15°-45° beam adjustment with a suspension cable that retracts inside the body for effortless and precise height adjustment.
