St. Paul, Minnesota, June 21, 2022 – MetroSpec Technology, the leading American manufacturer of custom FlexRad LED light sources, announced today that its FacetCore Spline was recognized for performance, reliability, efficiency, ease of integration/use, and innovation with an LEDs Magazine BrightStar Award. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the LED and lighting design and manufacturing community recognized MetroSpec as a top honoree in the LED Light Sources category.

“On behalf of the LEDs Magazine BrightStar Awards panel, I would like to congratulate MetroSpec Technology on their high-scoring honoree status,” said LEDs Magazine Editorial Director Wanda Lau. “This competitive program allows LEDs Magazine to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products of the past year that are advancing LED and solid-state lighting technology into various applications.”

FacetCore™ Spline LED light sources provide radial light for curved light fixtures that need a completely seamless appearance. FacetCore Spline does not need an extrusion or a bent sheet metal undercarriage – it slides simply and easily (like a glove) over a pre-shaped rod or tube, taking on the shape of the fixture. MetroSpec’s breakthrough FlexRad technology provides design freedom that is unmatched in the industry. This unique, patented technology is innovative, reliable, and customizable to any shape and size. The Spline enables this technology to be used in a variety of curved fixtures of various forms.

FacetCore Spline is part of a continuing series of labor saving and shape enabling products that began with MetroSpec’s core Cut2Fit system in 2009. At that time, MetroSpec offered the only trim-to-fit flexible LED light source in the market. MetroSpec has been enabling light fixture manufacturers with novel technologies ever since! FlexRad is unique in that it is always trimmable and enables higher brightness than its competitors. FacetCore Spline is comprised of three FlexRad technologies: FacetCore, Linear360 and Dim2Tone. It comes in a pre-assembled form with wires or connectors, and is trim-to-fit, resulting in no material waste. FlexRad makes production of LED light fixtures easier with built-in ease of assembly and labor savings, ultimately resulting in lower overall costs.

FlexRad includes a variety of technologies that allow fixture manufacturers to fill almost any shape with light. The novel applications of FlexRad also include Cut2Fit, Dually, Linear360, Hashtag, BoardOnCoil, Dim2Tone, and 4Tone. In all of its forms, FlexRad is the most powerful, versatile, and most reliable LED light technology available. As with all MetroSpec products, FacetCore Spline can be customized to perfectly fit all customer requirements.
