Recessed floor luminaires emit their beam upwards. They are offered with narrow-beam, wide-beam, symmetrical or asymmetrical light distribution.
Criteria for recessed floor luminaires
- choice of luminaire determines lightcolour and light intensity - emission angle determines the beam of light and is defined by the interchangeable lens
- cut-off angle limits glare and increases visual comfort
- size of the floor aperture
- recess depth
- mounting details (flush, covered)
Recessed floor luminaires
Uplights feature an upwards directed beam with symmetrical light distribution. The narrow, rotationally symmetrical beams are used for highlighting objects.
Directional luminaires are used for highlighting individual areas or objects with a medium to narrow light distribution. The beam can be tilted.
Recessed floor luminaires with diffuse light intensity distribution are used for marking paths or emphasising architectural lines.
