Light Injection & Glare
Our W-Range features a unique approach to luminaire design: light injection.
We use our patented light injection for all environments with a low bay ceiling height or lower, as the technology is specifically designed to combat glare, making it one of the most comfortable luminaires available.
LED light is intense and highly directional, which can create a strong contrast between light and dark within the visual range of the eye - this contrast is the cause of glare. Glare can be created as light leaves a luminaire or by undiffused light bouncing off reflective surfaces. If not properly managed, light from LED luminaires has a far higher potential to create glare than older, less efficient fixtures such as fluorescent tubes, because LED light comes from multiple intensive light sources rather than a larger, more homogeneous light source.
Our W-Range has been specifically engineered to be as comfortable as possible to the people working and waiting below. Light is injected into a flawless optical rod, which acts as a mixing chamber. Using the waveguide principle, light bounces off the insides of the rod and diffuses. This fully diffused light is then released from the mixing chamber by the application of a reflective surface to the top of the rod, the shape and width of which accurately controls the spread of light.
It is truly humancentric.
Light injection is the only technology which uses this approach to combat glare.
High Bay Optics
The directionality of our X-Range is controlled with precision through the selection of correct optics (or lenses).
Whilst multiple sources of intense directional light can problematic at lower levels, this LED characteristic is incredibly useful at high bay heights - usually 6m or above.
We create a 3D Dialux design for all the facilities we fit and this allows us not only to pinpoint where luminaires should be situated, but also to determine which optics to use in order to provide the best light uniformity around architectural features, tall static fixtures and spaces which are expected to receive and house tall temporary assets such as high sided vehicles.
The correct selection of optics is crucial to controlling fixture shadow, bright spots and reflective glare, which can cause visual discomfort when tasks require frequent shifting of view from underlit to overlit areas.
