Accent lighting with projectors can give a specific emphasis to individual spatial areas or objects in the room. For functional reasons, the extensive range of accessories such as filters and lenses are integrated within the housing. Floodlights with axially symmetrical light distribution are ideal for general lighting, whereas asymmetric floodlights are particularly suited to the even illumination of surfaces. The luminaires' high cut-off angles ensure very good visual comfort.
Vertical surfaces in an urban setting contribute significantly to the spatial definition of squares, road axes and buildings. From the point of view of perception psychology and design, façade lighting thus is a key element in the night lighting concept for urban areas. Different types of façade require specific lighting concepts to bring out the qualities of the architecture. The wide range of façade luminaires allows for a variety of lighting solutions that range from grazing light on façades to pathway lighting.
Buildings and their surroundings require a range of lighting solutions for the various tasks from the functional lighting of pathways, stairs or open areas to the dramatic lighting of façades. Luminaire ranges with different but predominantly wide-beam, asymmetric light distributions can be used to solve these problems. Each range of products with a uniform design providing the lighting designer with a choice mounting and luminaire position options. Irrespective of the functional principle of the lighting technology, priority is always given to key Dark Sky features as well as the prevention of glare and of unnecessary spill light.
Architectural situations such as atriums, cantilever roofs, passages or bridges require ceiling-mounted luminaires designed to meet the demands of outdoor lighting. These ceiling-mounted luminaires for outdoor applications provide a variety of lighting characteristics, from downlights and directional luminaires to wallwashers, making them ideal for the continuation of the indoor lighting concept outside.
The use of surface-mounted luminaires is often determined by practical considerations: For example, there might not be sufficient room to install recessed downlights in the ceiling. The conscious decision for a lighting concept with surface-mounted luminaires considerably reduces the level of installation work in solid ceilings or existing buildings, plus the lighting design can be flexibly adjusted to suit the given situation. Surface- mounted luminaires are available with various light characteristics ranging from downlights and directional luminaires to wallwashers, making them ideal for continuing lighting concepts from the indoor into the outdoor area.
In-ground luminaires are noticed catchers since the light source is positioned at ground level and the distinctive upward light direction immediately attracts attention. In this respect they also assume some tasks of directive lighting, e. g. by marking pathways or highlighting entrances. In addition to these rather technical applications, the luminaires can also provide highly effective architectural lighting, whether individual features are dramatically highlighted or to emphasise architectural lines using a row of luminaires.
