MicroTEK™ Asymmetric/Wall-wash profiles simplify optical design in linear LED lighting fixtures by providing a wide range of form factors and materials options for producing off-axis beam shaping and wall-washing properties with easy to implement snap-in or slide-in features. Profiles are available in both continuous-run slide in format and as a profile with snap-in mounting features that can be supplied up to 12ft lengths.
Asymmetric, or tilted, distributions are demanded by lighting designers and are an important requirement in high performance indirect and direct lighting, mostly used in perimeter, wall washing and cove type applications. Asymmetric distributions enable luminaires and light fixtures to be placed in the ideal position relative to a wall or ceiling. Without precise control of light distributions there would be glare and “hot spots” directly above, below or to the side of the light fixture.
