Imtra F17 LED Utility Light

NEW BEDFORD, Ma. - Imtra, a leading importer and manufacturer of quality marine products and advanced LED solutions, announced today its revolutionary ultra-slim LED-powered utility lights, the F16 and F17. The brightest utility lights on the market, the new F16 and F17 feature a rugged, shock and vibration-proof solid-state construction, and an ultra-thin (10mm and 14mm, respectively) profile that can be easily installed - even in the tightest quarters.

Providing 110-degree illumination equivalent to 20W and 35W lights, without the radiated heat and safety issues associated with halogen lighting, the F16 and F17 are the ideal LED solutions for illuminating any work area safely, conveniently and efficiently.

Imtra has partnered with German lighting manufacturer, Frensch GmbH, to bring the F16 and F17 utility lights to the North American market. The F16 and F17 achieves its incredibly thin profile by integrating the thermal heat sink plate into the aesthetic design, resulting in a fixture that can be used in environments where other fixtures cannot fit. Providing bright illumination and no perceptible heat, the F16 and F17 are always cool to the touch and eliminate fire safety-related concerns from contact with fabrics and other materials. Ideally suited for marine, RV and automotive applications such as engine rooms with low ceilings, utility closets, bilges and holds, the Imtra LEDs can also be installed under cabinets or on boat hardtops to provide high-quality, bright white illumination without disrupting aesthetic design lines.

"The F16 and F17 LED utility light fixtures are a perfect example of the different design possibilities that can be achieved using LED technology," said Kinder Woodcock, lighting product manager, Imtra. "Designed with an unobtrusive, compact form factor, the F16 and F17 provide high-quality, consistent illumination and a thin profile that cannot be achieved with other lighting technologies."

The F16 and F17 LED utility lights are housed in an impact-resistant aluminum case with ABS plastic end-caps. The four watt F16 model provides a cool color light output that is equivalent to 20W halogen bulbs, and ten watt F17 is equivalent to 35W halogen illumination. The F16 measures 4.33-inches wide x 3.15-inches deep x 0.39-inches tall; the F17 measures 7.87-inches x 4.72-inches x 0.55-inches. Imtra LED utility lights are designed to operate in both 12V and 24V electrical systems, are vibration and shock resistant and completely waterproof to the IP67 standard (submersible for 30 minutes at 1 meter). The Imtra F16 and F17 utility lights are protected by a 2-year warranty.

Pricing and Availability:

The Imtra F16 and F17 ultra-slim LED-powered utility lights have suggested retail prices of $139.00 and $209.00, respectively, and are currently available at marine retailers, boat yards and marine retrofitters throughout the United States and Canada, as well as from the company's website.
