Pure Architectural Bliss
Let your imagination run wild with our newest architectural lighting brand.
Sure, you dream in glowing technicolor, but your project has a budget, a schedule and a set of requirements. Maybe you need to stick with options that ship quick, or maybe you’re looking for California Title 24, JA8-certified alternatives for an ongoing project. Perhaps you’re working on value engineering a complex linear lighting design without compromising aesthetics or output. Maybe you’re in need of precision controls to bring your tunable light projects to life. Delivering a spectacular lighting project requires a careful balance of creative and practical considerations each and every time. We understand this, and GenLED Acolyte does too.
Acolyte is an American architectural lighting and controls company abound with solutions fit for both the artist and the project manager in you.
Practical Solutions Abound
This line is filled with amazingly powerful, creatively inspiring tools of light, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t immediately point out the logistical advantages that Acolyte brings to the table.
Acolyte is an excellent choice when you need quality architectural lighting that ships fast. Orders ship domestically from New Jersey, and you’ll find a variety of options available through the company’s 5-Day Quick Ship and Rapid Ribbon programs.
Since this product line is reasonably priced and maintains ample inventory, it’s a great option for apartment communities, hotels, corporate campuses or other large-scale projects requiring a high product volume.
Last (but definitely not least), Acolyte’s Title 24, JA8-certified options are extensive, making it an ideal fit for residential projects in California. We’ve pointed out a few exciting JA8 options in this post. Visit our Acolyte brand page to download a full list of their JA8-certified offerings.

Acolyte’s architectural sensibility is hard to miss. Built for designers, this line is stacked with flexible solutions for just about any and every application you can imagine.
