The darklight reflector combines maximum visual comfort with an optimum light output ratio.
As a surface-mounted version, Quintessence becomes an aesthetic architectural feature with the photometric properties of a downlight. Quintessence surface-mounted luminaires are designed with integrated control gear, making them ideal for use in rooms with ceilings that do not permit recessed luminaires. Following the system design of its range, surface-mounted luminaires offer the same sizes and lumen packages as recessed downlights. With an emission angle of 90° and a 40° cut-off, Quintessence meets the challenges of efficient ambient lighting masterfully whilst achieving high cylindrical illuminances. Its exceptionally wide beam enables large luminaire spacing with highly uniform illuminance distribution – and excellent glare control.

Individualise Quintessence for your use case
With our “ERCO individual” service we offer you extensive options for the individualisation of series products as well as support in the development of sophisticated special luminaires. In order to match Quintessence even more efficiently to your project requirements, further variants are available on request in addition to the series configuration. These include, for example:
Reflector: coated matt gold, matt silver or matt champagne
Housing: 10,000 further colours
Do you have further requirements with the product?
Please contact the consultant team in the following ERCO office:
Wide beam, rotationally symmetrical light distribution for general lighting.
12W - 32W
1190lm - 4400lm
For uniform ambient lighting with high visual comfort, the spacing (d) between two Quintessence surface-mounted downlights may be up to approximately 1.5 times the height (h) of the luminaire above the working plane.
Arrangement: d ≤ 1.5 x h
The wall offset should be half the luminaire spacing.
