MicroTEK™ Beam Shaping Profiles simplify optical design in linear LED lighting fixtures by providing a wide range of form factors and materials options for producing batwing, wide-angle, 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.
Tailored lighting distributions are demanded by lighting designers. Wide angle batwing distributions are demanded by lighting designers and are an important requirement in high performance indirect and direct lighting. Batwing distributions enable luminaires and light fixtures to be placed further apart and also closer to the ceiling. Without precise control of light and batwing distributions there would be glare and “hot spots” directly above or below the light fixture. Asymmetric, or tilted, lighting distributions mostly used in perimeter, wall washing and cove type applications and 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.
