Enhancing visual comfort and maximizing glare control
(Union City, CA) February, 2023 — Finelite, Inc., a recognized leader in energy-efficient lighting systems for offices, educational, and healthcare facilities, is pleased to announce the launch of HP-2 Micro Louver expanding the award-winning 2-inch aperture collection.
"Consistent with the Finelite promise of Better Lighting, this new option increases occupant comfort," said David Gentry - Finelite Senior Product Manager. "We listened to the lighting community and developed a refined low-glare solution for our HP-2 Collection."
The HP-2 Micro Louver features an advanced optical design to maximize glare control and enhance visual comfort. The HP-2 Micro Louver provides a unique downlight aesthetic with an architectural grade appearance available in both Black and White finishes.
Micro Louver features a deep 1" recessed louver design that shields the light source and provides superior visual cutoff with omni-directional glare control. Utilizing a unique LED board design, each Micro Louver cell is illuminated by a cluster of LEDs engineered to deliver uniform lighting, free of color defects or striation artifacts.
Each Micro Louver is comprised of 8 cells totaling 1' in length and are available in continuous runs and independent segments tailorable in 1' increments. To allow for design flexibility, HP-2 Micro Louver can be paired with Blank (non-illuminated) or Illuminated sections within the same luminaire.
This new addition of Micro Louvers supports WELL V2 LO4 Electrical Lighting Glare Control and minimizes luminance values above the 45-degree viewing angle which reduces eyestrain while supporting task performance and occupant comfort.
HP-2 Micro Louver Features:
- Unified Glare Rating (UGR): Black Finish UGR as low as 10 – White Finish UGR as low as 13
- 10-Working Day Shipping
- Pendant, Recessed, and Surface Mount
