Recessed spotlights, recessed floodlights and recessed wallwashers

Combining spotlights with recessed luminaires

Recessed spotlights, floodlights and wallwashers emit a beam that is directed downwards or to the side. They are offered with narrow-beam, wide-beam, symmetrical or asymmetrical light distribution. This type of lighting combines the flexibility of spotlights with the discreet appearance of recessed luminaires.

Criteria for recessed spotlights
- 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
- rotatable and tiltable
- recess depth
- size of ceiling aperture
- mounting detail (covered, flush)
