The LightFlex LED system provides natural light, electric light or a combination of both to optimize energy savings and daylight harvesting without sacrificing colour uniformity, says the company.
The system reduces the footprint of lighting produces in the ceiling by combining lighting and daylighting functionality. It also includes an integrated photosensor that works in conjunction with nLight controls from Acuity Brands to maintain levels from electric light, while maximizing occupant access to natural light.
Available in a 21-in. tubular design to support 2-ft. x 2-ft. ceiling configurations, the LightFlex LED uses tunable-white LEDs (2700K-6500K) to provide up to 3000 delivered lumens of light when adequate daylight is not available and includes adjustable elbows to bypass interior ceiling obstructions in retrofit applications.
