Cree, Inc. has announced the volume availability of the LR24, a 24-inch square recessed LED general lighting fixture. The LR24 is intended for suspended-ceiling applications traditionally addressed by linear fluorescents, also known as lay-ins or troffers.


The LR24 is the newest addition to the Cree family of recessed LED fixtures and delivers uniform, high light levels required for offices, schools,hospitals and retail environments while consuming less energy than most linear fluorescent systems.

The LR24 features a CRI rating of 92 and is dimmable from 100-5% using standard protocols.

“With the addition of the LR24, we can light an entire office using Cree LED fixtures,” said Neal Hunter, Cree president of LED lighting.

He added: “The volume availability of the LR24 builds on Cree’s success to-date, as we’ve already installed more than 1,000 early-production LR24s in various national-account projects.”

With a 24-inch square form, the LR24 offers architects and designers a modern lighting aesthetic. The lens is recessed above the ceiling for glare reduction and a distinctive look.

“We have installed LR24s on one floor at the U.S. Federal Reserve in Washington, D.C. as part of our ongoing energy-efficiency program,” said Chris Jennings, U.S. Federal Reserve, plant manager. “The graphic designers in the department love the uniformity and the color rendering of the new lights. We are impressed with the amount of light delivered by the LR24, and we look forward to evaluating additional Cree LED lighting products in other applications within the Federal Reserve.”

According to Cree, the LR24 can deliver recommended light levels at only 0.5-0.75W/sq.ft.
