Luminaires need to meet a variety of demands including a functional workplace, an environment with ambient lighting that creates a specific mood, as well as interior design concepts and imaginative decorative objects. ACRYLITE® allows lighting manufacturers and designers to find the choice material to bring their creations to life through light, shape, color, and texture.
Luminous efficiency, aesthetics, and long life are key properties for materials used to design lighting. The required function determines which aspect is more important. There is a full range of options that are available in the form of sheet, tubes, and rods in a multitude of colors and functions.
Crystal-Clear for a Good View
With our materials high optical purity, it transmits all wavelengths in the visible range and guides light without loss precisely to where it is needed. It prevents disturbing rings of color from showing at the edge of the light cone. Luminaires made with ACRYLITE® efficiently achieve high impact and enable extremely comfortable viewing, whether they are equipped with LEDs, fluorescent tubes or other light sources.
The range of possibility is enormous. From decorative ambient lighting to high output area lighting, the material unites modern design with new adopted technology, such as edge lit ceiling panels with LEDs.
Modern lighting concepts are often based on sophisticated technology. While some people find this exciting and want to show the technology involved, others prefer to conceal the interior workings. It makes both options possible. In its clear-transparent grade, it offers a crystal clear view. But when the material incorporates various diffuser particles, the internal workings of the lamps can be completely concealed. The material can be adjusted to provide any view in between those levels.
The properties of ACRYLITE® make it possible to satisfy conflicting demands for functional lights in various environments. These lights can all be attractive to look at and have the perfect brightness for your eyes while providing the appropriate amount of light to the target area. It distributes brightness evenly, regardless of the light source. It also diffuses light and prevents unpleasant hot spots.
An extruded light cover made of ACRYLITE® Satinice can prevent disturbing glare and minimize light loss through its surface. Lighting manufacturers can choose from a wide range of different degrees of diffusion. Tiny bead-shaped polymer particles continuously refract light to different angles, with no significant light loss, creating effective hiding power. This grade of acrylic is ideal for light fixtures that can not afford glare of light source hot spots.
Light in the Right Places
Glare-free lighting is essential in the workplace to prevent eye exhaustion when working. Covers made of ACRYLITE® create ideal office lighting conditions, with the perfect creation of form and function.
The material’s precisely reproduced surface texture guides the light exactly to where it is needed. This provides uniform illumination to the area it is installed.
Lighting solutions made with our material can also be used to light stadiums, airports, or individual items in retail displays where glare should be eliminated to allow that special glow to be enjoyed.
LED technology enables lighting in areas that have never before been possible. It enables designers and engineers to utilize the advantages, offered by LEDs, for new design ideas. ACRYLITE® LED and LEDs together make it possible to produce super-slim light panels by edge lighting. One or two sided slim illuminated partitions, luminous ceilings, and advertising displays can now easily be designed.
ACRYLITE® LED for edge lighting will guide the light through the material’s edges and enable uniform illumination through the perpendicular transparent surfaces. It is offered in sheet and rod.
