Optical Accessory Solutions

CHALLENGE: Light distribution is too narrow

SOLUTION: SPREAD LENSES 

  • Spread lenses stretch a beam in both directions to cover an expanse of wall. No tunable luminaire can manipulate the beam with such precision.

  • 30°, 55° and 70° spread lenses extend a lamp’s beam along one axis, allowing you to highlight wider areas from a single fixture.

  •  40° x 70° spread lens is our unique wallwashing solution. The lens extends a beam in two directions for a floor-to-ceiling wash of light. 

  • Available in diffuse (frosted), prismatic, and Daylight Blue.

CHALLENGE: Beamspread is too defined

SOLUTION: DIFFUSERS

  • Diffusers deliver unparalleled uniformity by scattering light with varying intensities. 

  • Beam Smoothers: lightly stippled to gently diffuse light.

  • Prismatic lens (Solite): patterned to appreciably diffuse the light.
  • Diffuse lens: frosted to substantially diffuse the light. 

CHALLENGE:  Luminaire cannot be individually dimmed

SOLUTION: LIGHT REDUCTION SCREEN

  • 33%, 50%, or hex cell louver reduction screens reduce light output without affecting color or distribution.

  • Avoids expensive and potentially incompatible dimming systems 

CHALLENGE:  Need for enhancing daylight, skin tones, or visual interest.

SOLUTION: COLOR FILTER

  • Daylight Blue color filter creates an effect comparable with daylight – developed for museums, but just as useful in daylit commercial or residential spaces. Also available as a spread lens.

  • Surprise Pink color filter makes people look radiantly healthy – a great addition to restaurants, clubs and hotels.

  • Amber, blue, green and red color filters offer an extra 'pop'!

  • Stippled to eliminate any chance of spots or sprinkles.
