Hayward unveils the first and only white LED light UL approved for safe installation in virtually any niche

That’s right, virtually ANY niche!  Hayward’s new Universal CrystaLogic™ is the most brilliant and versatile lighting for commercial pools and spas.

This breakthrough design combines all the very latest high performance LED and advanced polymer technology to deliver extraordinary lumen per watt energy efficiency and associated long lifetime cost benefits. The unique 12V, all-plastic light and niche design eliminates the need for bond, ground wire and GFCI. UL listed to retrofit virtually all existing manufacturer’s niches, CrystaLogic is the perfect aftermarket upgrade product. For new construction, the shallow design together with a new all-plastic Thin Niche, just 23/4 inches deep allows niches to be mounted to the face of the rebar saving well over $150 in material and labor per light. Additionally, the innovative design delivers unparalleled versatility; lights can be mounted in as little as 4 inches of water either on the sidewall or upwardly facing from the floor.

According to Hayward Commercial General Manager Patrick Sweeney, “These LED lights are incredibly brilliant. Their patent pending design comprising of advanced LED’s, optics and thermal management, delivers extraordinary, best in class lumen output. We’re equally excited about their versatility and efficiency; CrystaLogic LED all-plastic lights are truly universal, meaning these lights are UL listed to go into virtually any manufacture’s niche! Additionally, new pools with beach entries, steps, shelves, water features, etc. can also upgrade to LED lighting.  What this will do for the ambiance of these bodies of water, not to mention the dramatic energy cost savings, is game changing.”

These low voltage lights offer energy savings of up to 79% over incandescent and can last 10 times longer. There is simply nothing that compares. Based on actual integrating sphere lumen measurements, the CrystaLogic 300W delivers the same lumens as the leading competitor’s claimed 500W equivalent light.
