USG Corp. partners with GE Lighting

Two of the building industry’s largest manufacturers are collaborating on a new ceiling system designed for use in commercial applications. USG Corp. will offer its Logix Integrated Ceiling System with GE Lumination’s LED Linear Recessed Luminaires. The system is ideal for office, retail, healthcare and hospitality environments, the two companies said.

“The collaboration between USG and GE addresses the need of the architectural and design community for more monolithic, high-performance ceiling design options,” said Chris Griffin, USG executive VP operations. “We’re proud to offer a ceiling system that can be designed with greater flexibility in the configurations, performance specifications, and aesthetic and size options of panels and grid, while also incorporating lighting and mechanical systems for a more customized and monolithic ceiling.”

GE’s Lumination LED Linear fixtures will offer significantly better lighting performance over fluorescents, requiring less energy and lasting for years without the need for replacement, according to the announcement. 

“The breakthrough of our integrated ceiling and lighting system offers uninterrupted channels of lighting and acoustical panels for a desired design aesthetic without compromising performance,” said Jaime Irick, general manager, GE Lighting North America Professional Solutions.
