Finelite Introduces DAO for HP-2 and HP-4

Downlight Asymmetric Optic for HP-2 and HP-4

Delivering A Better Downlight Experience


(Union City, CA) September, 2021 - Finelite, Inc., a recognized leader in energy-efficient lighting systems for offices, educational, and healthcare facilities, is pleased to announce the launch of Downlight Asymmetric Optic (DAO) for the High Performance HP-2 and HP-4 Collections.

The DAO technology gives designers a new tool to better illuminate interior applications. By offering both left and right options, DAO provides the ability to aim light in a particular direction. DAO is an ideal solution for when fill light is needed in a space or to highlight vertical surfaces

In 2020, Finelite introduces Downlight Spread Optic (DSO) to the popular HP-4 collection. The same DSO technology was recently utilized and integrated into the HP-2 collection which provides a wide batwing distribution that’s enhances downlight uniformity. With noticeably wider distributions than standard lambertian, the DSO option allows for fewer and wider spaced luminaires, resulting in reduced installation and luminaire cost.

Both DAO and DSO provide outstanding performance with smooth surface brightness delivering a better downlight experience. Designed with installing contractors in mind, DAO and DSO can be installed in the field to replace existing standard flush lenses if and when there is a change in lighting needs.
