Wallwashers have a wide-beam characteristic. They are offered with an asymmetric light distribution.
Criteria for wallwashers
- choice of luminaire determines lightcolour and light intensity - emission angle determines thebeam of light
- uniform illumination of the wall with large luminaire spacing
- adjustable wallwashers allow individual adjustment to suit the spatial conditions
- focal emphasis through tilting of the luminaire
- accessories for mounting on posts or on the ground
Recessed-mounted wallwashers with asymmetric light distribution provide an even illimination of areas.
Recessed-mounted wallwashers with asymmetric light distribution provide an even illimination of areas. Surface-mounted downlights can be mounted on walls, ceilings or floors and in addition can also be tilted.
Grazing light wallwashers at a short offset from the wall most vividly enhance the surface texture, thereby accentuating the materials used.

Wallwashing is an important component of architectural lighting for adding emphasis to facades. Further applications are: - entrance areas - passages - atria - overhanging or cantilevered roofs - park and garden complexes
As recessed luminaires, wallwashers are inconspicuous architectural details. Surface-mounted downlights act as a room feature. They should correspond to the architecture in their arrangement and form.
