Californian manufacturer A-Light has launched a line of sound-absorbing luminaires. The new ABSORB family has been designed to provide functional illumination while reducing sound in open spaces and areas with high ceilings.
ABSORB comes in two styles – the ABSORB H has horizontal sound absorbing panels, ABSORB V has vertical panels. The felt-like panels are polyester, fully recyclable and made from at least 40 percent post-consumer recycled PET bottles.
“ABSORB is a human centric design that helps achieve better lighting and acoustic conditions throughout modern shared space environments,” said Francois Renaud, director of design for A-Light. “The products combine high performance optics and the most advanced acoustic materials to create a solution for two different problems.”
ABSORB is suited to schools, offices, reception areas, lobbies, conference rooms, auditoriums, convention centres and other locations where noise could be an issue. The family is available in nominal increments of 2ft lengths, in three standard panel colours (charcoal, silver and royal blue: other options are available) and with three distribution types – Direct/Indirect Symmetric, Direct/Indirect Symmetric Wide and Direct Symmetric.
