Glare-free Elegant Luminaires

Lighting systems for hotels, shops and public buildings have to meet the highest standards when it comes to lighting technology and design. Specializing in contemporary lighting solutions, PLANLICHT uses covers made from light-diffusing ACRYLITE® acrylic to create elegant luminaires with glare-free light.

PLANLICHT a company with a long tradition based in Austria, values ACRYLITE® acrylic for luminaire construction. The cover plates for its “ophelia” and “olmo” surface lights are produced from light-scattering ACRYLITE® Satinice by a processing partner Hans Fischer GmbH.

ACRYLITE® Satinice to create even, harmonious light

The round “ophelia” and square “olmo” have a sleek, elegant design and can be used in a wide variety of ways: as ceiling, wall or pendant luminaires. For designer lights like this to radiate their full beauty, the point lighting of the LEDs needs to be evenly distributed. Yet the smaller the distance between the LEDs and the cover, the more likely it is that hotspots will be visible. This kind of unwanted difference in the brightness of backlighting can be prevented by light-scattering materials. Tailored to the location and type of use, PLANLICHT offers its luminaires with a diffuser made from ACRYLITE® Satinice.

Evenly diffused light in many styles

Cover plates made from light-scattering ACRYLITE® Satinice acrylic create even, harmonious and glare-free light as shown in the square light fixture "olmo". For large pendant luminaries in particular, the light-weight and shatter resistant properties of acrylic provide additional advantages of using this material.


Light covers from the plastics experts

The cover plates for “ophelia” and “olmo” are made from ACRYLITE® acrylic by the plastics processing company Hans Fischer GmbH in Cologne. “We have a wealth of experience in processing plastic semi-finished products with satined and textured surfaces. We produce square and round covers in a range of sizes for PLANLICHT,” says Sales Manager Tim Kulisch. “Our state-of-the-art portal milling system and CO2 laser machines enable us to produce covers for large-scale surface luminaires.” With cost efficiency and sustainability just as important in lighting planning as excellent lighting conditions, the plastics processor makes sure to get the best possible use out of the material.

Impressive properties in light technology

“ACRYLITE® Satinice allows us to achieve a completely homogeneous light. In addition, when the luminaire is switched off, the material appears rich white and reflection-free thanks to its matte surface,” explains Raimund Mayr, Technical Director at PLANLICHT.
