New Cree® KR Series LED Downlights Continue To Obsolete Fluorescent Lighting

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) extends the KR Series LED downlight portfolio delivering greatly improved performance at pricing to match incumbent fluorescent downlights. With new lumen packages of up to 2650 delivered lumens, the KR Series replaces 18 to 42 watt fluorescents.

Cree is further expanding the range of LED downlight applications by introducing the KR4™ downlight which features an impressive, high lumen 4-inch aperture, with options similar to the 6-inch KR6™ downlight. With new standard 0 to 10V dimming, sloped ceiling and wall wash trim options the KR Series downlights provide attractive aesthetic appeal for numerous commercial and retail applications.

“The KR Series LED downlights are ideal for new construction applications,” said Greg Merritt, vice president, lighting. “And with the increased range of LED options now available at price parity to fluorescent lighting incumbents, I see no reason to ever specify a CFL downlight.”

Built with Cree TrueWhite ® Technology, the KR Series downlight family is available in a wide range of color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K and a new 4000K), all with industry-leading 90+ CRI, enabling beautiful, efficient lighting. To help facilitate utility rebates, the KR Series is currently in the qualification process for earning the ENERGY STAR ®.

The KR Series is sold through Cree lighting sales channels. Please visit to learn more about the KR Series LED downlights.
