MetroSpec Technology Honored with LEDs Magazine BrightStar Award for FlexRad® FacetLED and Announces Company Milestone


St. Paul, Minnesota – MetroSpec Technology, the leading American manufacturer of custom FlexRad LED light sources, announced today that its FacetLED light source was recognized for performance, efficiency, ease of installation, and innovation with an LEDs Magazine BrightStar Award. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the LED lighting community recognized MetroSpec as a top honoree in the LED Light Sources category. This is MetroSpec’s third consecutive BrightStar Award recognizing their innovative FlexRad products.

“On behalf of the BrightStar Awards panel, I would like to congratulate MetroSpec Technology on their high-scoring honoree status,” said LEDs Magazine Editor-In-Chief Carrie Meadows. “This competitive program allows LEDs Magazine to celebrate and recognize innovative products of the past year that demonstrate advances in LED lighting technology with flexible features, improved performance and ease of use, enhanced control capabilities, and steps toward greater sustainability in the lighting community.”

MetroSpec continues to invent new light sources that enable light fixture manufacturers to efficiently build light fixture forms simply, with less materials, cost and labor. The FacetCore and FacetLED family of LED light sources is an excellent example. 


FacetLED™ is an extremely powerful, very lightweight, LED light source created for a variety of fixtures requiring 360-degree illumination and end-fill capability.


With outputs ranging from 3,000 to 15,000+ lumens, FacetLED illuminates globes, drums, bollards, schoolhouse fixtures, acorns, and an endless set of volumetric fixtures, with simplicity and efficiency not available with other light sources. FacetLED does not require a heat sink – it directly cools by enhancing ambient air circulation. There is simply nothing like it.

FacetLED can be shaped into forms that control the direction of light. Unlike other LED light sources, FacetLED can be used to create lobed light patterns without special lensing or reflectors. It can also be scaled into almost any wattage.

MetroSpec Technology has been manufacturing FlexRad LED light sources in Minnesota for over 15 years. No matter where you travel in North America, you have probably seen light emanating from FlexRad LED.
