Optical Accessories

Fine tune lighting flexibly and affordably with our collection of optical accessories. Our spread lens, beam smoother, screen, and color filter have been perfected and made in the USA for over fifty years.

To overcome common lighting challenges, insert up to two optical accessories into one of the hundreds of compatible luminaires, see below. With 136 possible combinations, you can make slight, but crucial adjustments.

Optical accessories offer unique benefits compared to tunable luminaires. Spread lenses stretch beamspreads wider than any app can. Beam smoothers soften beams more subtly. And light reduction screens and color filters are more cost-effective alternatives to tunable LEDs. 

CHALLENGE: Light distribution is too narrow

SOLUTION: SPREAD LENS 

  • Spread lenses stretch a beam in both directions to cover an expanse of wall. 

  • 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: BEAM SMOOTHER

  • Beam Smoothers are clear disks of glass finished with stipples that gently diffuse light.

  • Deliver unparralleled uniformity, which is especially valuable in museums and retail installations.

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 compatible 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 eminating.
