Raise the Roof, North Carolina


Rayon Lighting Group, Inc. /Los Angeles, CA-September, 2016: North Carolina’s Roxboro Community School, Raise the Roof project marked the culmination of a decade’s worth of renovations. This 117-year-old former textile plant now houses college preparatory educational opportunities for middle and high school students in surrounding counties. The $2.4 million project provides a home court gymnasium for the public charter school’s championship volleyball and basketball teams. The renovation also resulted in a stage and multipurpose area for the thriving theater, band, dance, chorus and visual arts programs offered by the school. 

The lighting agency responsible for marrying Rayon Lighting Groups red shade bay light to the gorgeous red brick walls, is Raleigh North Carolina’s, QLS. Fully committed to the design, QLS worked tirelessly to provide timely and accurate information to the architect and engineer who spearheaded the project and made sure the school received their vision.

Rayon Lighting Groups contribution to the newly renovated community school is a custom architectural LED high bay called; Sonoma I. This handsome light was a perfect fit in design and flexibility. Its rugged die cast aluminum housing, custom red acrylic lens and custom red powder coat finish makes a statement with the lights on or off. The architect and engineer needed to work with a multifaceted company who offers various custom solutions and color pallets in order to freely design the space, use minimal energy and have the product in time for back to school.
