Recessed luminaires

With recessed luminaires, the luminaire is completely subordinate to its lighting effect. The lighting tools are hardly noticed as an additional element of design, being fully integrated into the architecture. The spatial and architectural appeal is revealed in an interplay of light and shadow. Downlights and wallwashers are perfect for high quality general lighting with excellent visual comfort, and adjustable spotlights are ideal for accent lighting.

Luminaires for general lighting

Downlights are ideally suited for the planar illumination of rooms and circulation routes. Downlights from ERCO are characterized by very high visual comfort. ERCO downlights with wide light distributions enable efficient general lighting with large luminaire spacing.

Luminaires for standard-compliant office lighting

Light for the office or the co-working space should not only be economical, but also conform to standards. ERCO recessed luminaires with special light distributions for workstations fulfill all the criteria for standard-compliant office lighting with a high level of visual comfort. Recessed luminaires with round, square and linear designs are available for individual ceiling-integrated lighting concepts in administration areas, restaurants, cultural institutes and office buildings.

Luminaires for wallwashing

Wallwashers are special lighting tools for the uniform illumination of walls. They enable vertical lighting in foyers, create magical grazing light in restaurants and achieve precise double wallwashing in corridors. Even with wall heights of 8m / 26ft and more, the brightness distribution from the ceiling to the floor still remains convincingly uniform.

Luminaires for accenting and floodlighting

Directional spotlights are ideal for high-contrast accent lighting in shops, foyers and private homes. As recessed luminaires they blend elegantly into the ceiling and only a small light aperture remains visible. Directional spotlights can be precisely aligned thanks to their pan-and-tilt luminaire heads. Recessed luminaires with wide light distributions illuminate large works of art or entire room areas, thus providing a thorough impression of brightness.

Features of recessed luminaires

Wallwashing in all its facets

ERCO wallwashers are the specialists for vertical lighting with wall heights of 8m and more: ranging from uniform wallwashing in foyers and highly attractive grazing light on structured walls to precise double wallwashing in corridors.

Recessed luminaires

Round, square or linear

The design of ERCO recessed luminaires offers almost any light distribution – thanks to lens technology that‘s independent of the luminaire geometry.

Setting magical accents with directional spotlights

Directional spotlights blend almost invisibly into the architecture. They combine the appearance of a downlight with the adjustment capability of a spotlight.

Luminaires for high rooms

Precise illumination in high rooms: ERCO LED downlights offer high illuminances and outstanding visual comfort.

Recessed luminaires

Extremely durable

Due to their excellent maintenance of luminous flux, ERCO luminaires feature high investment security: L90/B10 with up to 50,000 operating hours. At 9 hours a day, this means over 15 years of low-maintenance operation with outstanding photometric characteristics – ideal for difficult-toaccess installation locations.

Shallow recess depth

In tight installation situations every millimetre is decisive. Just 75mm/2,95" is sufficient for especially flat recessed luminaires.

How long do ERCO luminaires last?

Thanks to high product quality and excellent lumen maintenance, ERCO luminaires provide a high level of investment security. There is an indication that also reflects the quality of luminaires in figures: the L90/B10 value. It specifies the assured behavior of a luminaire in the first 50,000 hours of its service life. At 9 hours of daily operation over 15 years, this means excellent photometric properties. The luminaire is fully functional even after this time. Please note that you may then have to consider the brightness level of the luminaires separately in your lighting calculations.

How can I see which ERCO luminaire I have?

Each luminaire is provided with a label which specifies the article number (e.g. 1042002.000). You can enter this number directly when searching on erco.com – the corresponding luminaire will be displayed. In the case of recessed luminaires for example you can see the label when you remove the reflector. If in doubt, contact your regional lighting consultant at www.erco.com/contact.

Where can I find the dimensions for the ceiling cut-out?

A dimensional drawing and the required ceiling cut-out can be found on the specification sheet of the luminaire. Recessed luminaires are available in several sizes.

Where can I find information about the recess depth?

Recessed luminaires are available in several sizes. Click on the desired article to obtain the specification sheet with the drawing and specification of the required recess depth. For small luminaires, the space required may be larger than the actual dimensions of the luminaire. This second dimension then corresponds to the height required to push the control gear through the ceiling cut-out.

Are the luminaires supplied with control gear?

Yes, all ERCO recessed luminaires are supplied with control gear. This is the only way to ensure optimum compatibility between the luminaire and the control gear.

Can I request recessed luminaires as special luminaires with a different control or mounting solution?

We would be pleased to review your individual mounting requirements. Please contact your ERCO lighting consultant. Exciting sample projects that we have implemented with special solutions can be found at: www.erco.com/individual.
