Extruded aluminum housing includes typical recycled content of 25-30%.
End Caps
Die cast flat end caps for standard lamp configuration. Staggered lamps feature extended end-of-row end caps to ensure continuous light without obtrusively dark row ends. Both end caps feature silicone gasket to eliminate light leak, see Light Seal.
Light Seal
Housing unions between all joints include upper formed light seal and aligner connectors to block light. End of row and single units feature unique optimized V-0 closed cell silicone gasket light seal at joints between extruded housing and die cast end cap.
Secure, simple housing connections ensure row continuity without light. Standard lamp configuration features patent pending Ready Connect system for end cap connections.
Microlyne Asymmetric Cable Mount uses adjustable aircraft cable combined with threaded rod screw connections for T-Bar or hard ceilings. Simple screw connection to housing provides quick, simple attachment. 5" steel canopy covers are provided standard for feed and non-feed locations. 2" canopies optional. Microlyne Asymmetric Surface Mount can mount to T-Bar, drywall, wooden or drywall beams and other structural surfaces. Microlyne Asymmetric Wall Mount uses cleverly designed, discreet wall brackets to create a floating appearance approximately 1/2" from the vertical wall surface. Brackets are made with heavy gauge galvanized steel.
High reflectance formed white reflector.
Shielding is provided for single or continuous row. Options match across entire Microlyne family. Opal Acrylic (OA) lens emphasizes the narrow rectilinear shape by creating a pleasant glow of white along the underside of the housing. White Cross Baffle (WCB) emphasizes linearity with a crisp, clean bladed appearance.Matte anodized (MA) louvers incorporate an attractive but subtle grain pattern which minimizes the visibility of fingerprints and construction dust without sacrifice to aesthetic qualities. Miro 4 (M4R) specular parabolics combine glare control and performance with a high tech, cubed aesthetic. High efficiency specular parabolic (HEP) louvers maximize downlight for enhanced efficiency where maximum light output is the primary concern.
Asymmetric downlight louver lights vertical surfaces or walls by placing light above traditional cut-off point. Asymmetric louver appears identical to standard louver from below product for an exceptionally uniform appearance; no reflector hangs below housing into room space.
