Approved and Pre-approved Equivalent Housings for Retrofit Kits

Approved and Pre-approved Equivalent Housings for Retrofit Kits

For testing purposes, DLC specifies typical fixture housings for retrofit products to be tested in. This is done to provide testing results under common conditions that the retrofit kits would be installed in. In providing this list of typical fixture housings, DLC does not endorse or exclude any particular make or model frame for use in energy efficiency programs. Note that in each recommended variation we state, or “Pre-approved Equivalent”. In selecting a fixture for testing the applicant shall consider the purpose of subjecting the tested kit to extreme confinement for thermal endurance. Manufacturer shall select a fixture for testing based on the intended application of the retrofit kit. 

The fixtures listed under “pre-approved equivalent” have been requested by applicants and approved for use in retrofit kit testing.

Note that at this time, the DLC does not qualify screw-in “lamps” intended as HID replacements as retrofit kits.

 



Outdoor Area & Roadway Luminaires

If the kit is specific to shoebox fixtures (not applicable to cobraheads), choose a fixture from among those listed herein under shoebox.

If the kit is specific to cobrahead fixtures (not applicable to shoeboxes), choose a fixture from among those listed herein under cobrahead.

If the kit may be applied to both cobraheads and shoebox fixtures, choose a fixture from among those listed herein under either shoebox or cobrahead.

Kits designed for larger-sized housings must demonstrate that they do not fit in the smaller housing sizes by submitting a CAD file (below) with the kit installed in the reference small cobrahead.
