Uplights feature an upwards directed beam with symmetrical light distribution. The narrow, rotationally symmetrical beam is used for highlighting objects.
Lens wallwashers feature an upwards directed beam with asymmetrical light distribution. They provide an even illumination of walls.
Directional luminaires provide highlighting for individual areas or objects with a medium to narrow light distribution. The beam can be titled.
Grazing light wallwashers at a short offset from the wall most vividly enhance the surface texture, thereby accentuating the materials used.
