Séura announced that its lighted mirrors are compliant with the new California Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The standards are designed to ensure new and existing buildings achieve energy efficiency and preserve environmental quality.
Effective this year, the Title 24 Residential Standards have JA8 requirements that all luminaries must be high-efficacy. These regulations affect construction of a new buildings, as well as alterations made to existing buildings including residential homes and hotel guestrooms.
Séura’s engineering team tested their lighted mirrors to be sure they complied with the new energy efficacy standards. These mirrors use a group of approved dimmable drivers, precise wattages and specific strip lengths of Séura Brilliant LED Technology for compliance.
The Energy Commission is required by law to adopt standards every three years that incorporate new energy efficient technologies and construction methods. Séura offers lighted mirrors that meet the new standards including minimum efficacy of 45 lumens per watt, fast start time of ½ second maximum, lifespan minimum rating of 15,000 hours or 25,000 hours for built-in LED bulbs, dimmable down to 10 percent, 3000K maximum color temperature, and minimum color rendering index (CRI) of 90 and color rendering red (R9) or 50.
