About Acolyte

Acolyte is American architectural lighting manufacturer that offers an extensive line of LED solutions for just about any application you can imagine. Their fixtures are competitively priced without compromising quality or performance. Their strict quality control measures mean you can expect color accuracy, consistent CCT’s and smooth transitions across the line. You can’t go wrong, and we can’t wait to show you what we mean in real life!

Acolyte is perhaps best known for their RibbonLyte series of LED tape lighting that can be figured in numerous different ways to achieve the exact color, temperature and requirements needed for your project. Standouts from the RibbonLyte series include fully addressable RGBW tapes, a diode-free tunable white option and flexible tapes that can be bent up to 90 degrees.

Your Lighting, Your Way

Acolyte doesn’t just make incredible lighting tools–they make it easy on the designers, contractors and distributors who rely on these tools by providing excellent, fast service and accounting for other practical and logistical considerations like cost and lead time. Northern California design professionals will love their diverse array of Title 24 JA8-compliant lighting solutions for residential construction projects.

During Acolyte’s upcoming visit, we’ll address factors like their QuickShip & Rapid Ribbon programs, and we’ll have samples from their line of JA8-compliant options on hand to demo.

See The Latest

Acolyte just released a brand new unbelievably discrete JA8-compliant micro fixture. The Piccolo measures just 0.23 in. (5.91 mm) high and 0.2 in. (5 mm) wide. It can be surface-mounted, recessed or built into millwork, narrow slats and other tights spots.

During their upcoming visit, you’ll have the opportunity to see, experience and touch this tiny wonder.

Your meeting with Acolyte will include a live demo of the new fixture, and you’ll also get to see and feel a fixture from their soon-to-be-released “Scroll” series of customizable pendants that can be ordered in just about any shape and size you can imagine.
