American Douglas Metals Works with Lighting Industry to Deliver High Valued Results

(Orlando,FLORIDA) — American Douglas Metals (ADM), leader in metal distribution, processing and fabrication and one of the largest suppliers of light-gauge high reflective painted aluminum sheet and coil to the lighting industry, expands their lighting fixture metals product line in efforts to help lighting manufacturers capitalize on their products of high energy efficiency.

Manufacturers have realized the use of highly reflective aluminum materials are a sustainable approach to today’s green movement. Furthermore, the use of these materials is increasing fixture efficiencies by up to 30%. The combination of energy efficient lamps and ballasts will result in energy savings of up to 70% when compared to standard troffer fixtures.

As more and more lighting manufacturers are taking additional steps to increase the energy efficiency of their products due to demand and advantages of using more “green” products, finding solutions through complementary items has proved added value to the efficient products that already exist in the industry.

“In the metal industry, the ability to be considered ‘green’ is usually limited to the amount of recycled material used in producing the metal,” says Jeff Raimonde, Vice President of Marketing for ADM. “With new paint systems, we are able to offer more to product lines than just recycled content and our technologies are actually improving the overall efficiency of the lights, creating greener methods for industries across the board.”

American Douglas Metals provides aluminum and steel products for every facet of fixture manufacturing for reflectors, bodies, ballast covers and brackets. Always looking for new ways to bring innovation to its products and related industries, ADM values its partners and looks forward to working together towards the greener good.
